Thigh Lift Surgery in Memphis
If fitness and diet have been unable to give you firm youthful-looking thighs with a pleasing proportion, a surgical thigh lift may be the appropriate procedure. This surgical technique allows to you have tight, attractive thighs. A thigh lift resculpts your thighs and reduces excess drooping skin, fat, and tissue, leaving you with smooth, tight, fit-looking thighs that look appealing in tighter clothing. You can achieve smoother, less bulky thighs and lower body with a customized thigh lift procedure.
Thigh Lift Recovery
As a thigh lift is a major surgical procedure, you will need to plan for your recovery. When the surgery is completed, you will have bandages covering the area, and depending upon your procedure, may have surgical drains in place. You must set aside adequate time away from work to rest and recover, in most cases about three to four weeks before you can return to work, with six weeks a typical period to heal completely.
Those who have had a procedure in the crease of the groin may recover more quickly. Some patients have undergone a full lower body lift, which addresses the thighs as well as the buttocks. Every person is different both in what is needed and in the speed with which they heal. Swelling and bruising are to be expected. You will have to restrict your activities during recovery and spend plenty of time lying down and resting to help you heal more quickly.
