Thigh Lift in San Ramon, CA Breast Procedures in San Ramon, CA

Thigh LiftA thigh lift in San Ramon allows patients to achieve sculpted and contoured thighs. Also called thighplasty, this cosmetic plastic surgery procedure is an ideal option for patients looking to improve thigh definition by reducing sagging tissue.

Ideal Thigh Lift Candidates

The best candidates for thighplasty surgery are in good overall health without any conditions that could result in complications. Patients who have experienced dramatic weight loss are good candidates for the surgery.

Ideal candidates are non-smokers, since smoking negatively affects skin health, which can result in a prolonged healing and recovery process. Smokers must quit weeks before the date of the surgery.

The Procedure

Excess skin and fatty tissue can be removed from the medial thigh area with a medial thigh lift. In patients who have lost a great deal of weight, the excess skin can extend down the upper leg to the knee, an incision is placed down the leg on the inside to remove excess skin on the thigh. If the loose skin and fatty tissue is not as extensive, then the incision can be hidden in the groin region to elevate and tighten the medial thigh.

The procedure takes 2-3 hours depending on the amount of loose skin and the procedure can be performed as an outpatient procedure or with an overnight stay depending on the how extensive the procedure is and the patient’s general health. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia in a fully accredited private surgery center.

Thigh Lift Recovery

After a thigh lift, patients will experience a degree of bruising and swelling in the operative area. These issues can be addressed with the help of cold compresses and post-surgical elastic garments, and they will fade over time.

Activity level and weight resistance is restricted for 2-3 weeks and then light aerobic exercise for 3-4 weeks with adding weight resistance and increasing intensity to a full work out by 6-8 weeks. Sit-ups and push- ups can be started at 6-8 weeks. Sitting for long periods is discouraged in the first 2 weeks but standing and reclining does not put any tension on the incisions.

How Much Does a Thigh Lift Cost?

Many factors play a role in determining the overall cost of a thigh lift procedure. The total time required to perform the surgery, anesthesia fees, the amount of tissue removed, and the techniques employed can all affect price.
