What is a Body and Thigh Lift?
Patients who have experienced multiple pregnancies or bariatric surgery will particularly benefit from a body lift procedure. Designed to remove extra skin and then firm and lift the remaining tissue, the body lift will be, for many, the final step in reconstruction after extensive weight loss. The body lift is the most impactful single procedure for rebuilding the waist and achieving a trim silhouette.
Upper and Lower Body Lifts—An upper body lift focuses on the breasts and upper back, while a lower body lift targets loose, excess skin on the buttocks, thighs, hips, and abdominal region.
How to Get a Thigh Gap?
A thigh gap refers to the space that appears between your thighs when you are standing straight. A thigh gap is usually not achievable through diet and exercise, making a thigh lift a plausible option. A thigh gap has become a sign of health and attractiveness.
Inner and Outer Thigh Lifts—An inner thigh lift removes loose skin, and extra fat is liposuction is combined in the inner thigh region to develop firmer, toner legs. An outer thigh lift removes what is commonly referred to as saddlebags, sagging skin, and fat in the outer or mid-thigh region. An outer thigh lift is usually performed alongside a Brazilian butt lift to lift and tighten the outer and backside of the thighs and hips.
What Are the Benefits of a Body and Thigh Lift?
Body and thigh lifts can both prevent possible infections as a result of loose, draped skin that often retains moisture. Flabby skin can also result in chafing, which is also eliminated with a body and thigh lift. Both procedures create a newly contoured figure that improves your self-confidence and self-image. Following your procedures, you are left with tight, toned skin.
Who is an Ideal Candidate for a Body and Thigh Lift?
The ideal candidate for a body and thigh lift are patients who have recently accomplished major weight loss and have loose skin that has lost its elasticity and is unable to retract to its former shape.
What is the Procedure for a Body and Thigh Lift?
The body and thigh lifts are performed under general anesthesia at the Coastal Cosmetic Center’s nationally accredited on-site surgery center, Coastal Surgery Center, in Jacksonville, FL. Frequently combined with a tummy tuck, liposuction, or a Brazilian butt lift, Dr. Fee will remove the excess tissue and then tighten the skin to sculpt your desired shape.
What is the Recovery for a Body and Thigh Lift?
A body and thigh lift are major surgical procedures and it is crucial that patients follow post-operative protocols. Patients can expect to be off work and restricted to light duty activities for two weeks. Within two months, patients should be back to a full exercise and daily living regimen. Combined with healthy lifestyle choices, a body lift delivers long-lasting results.
How Much Does a Body and Thigh Lift Cost?
Body and thigh lifts will vary significantly between patients, so Dr. Fee will take the time to thoroughly examine and discuss your expectations from the procedure.
