A thigh lift reshapes the thighs by removing any excess skin. This allows the skin to become smoother, while also making the thighs more proportional to the rest of the body.
A thigh lift will help you regain that youthfulness you once had. If normal diet and exercise have not helped you achieve the look that you want, a thigh lift may be your best option!
Dr. Birely has been doing body sculpting for over 20 years and has a unique eye to help you get the look and proportions you may desire.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Thigh Lift?
If exercising efforts have not helped you achieve your goals, a thigh lift may be a good option for you. Ideal candidates typically have the following defining characteristics:
An excess of skin tissue along the inner or outer thigh region
A set of realistic goals with what a thigh lift can do for them
Some small areas of fat tissue along the thigh
A generally good state of health
No smoking habits
Thigh Lifts are not intended for fat loss, but rather, for smoothing and contouring skin. If you are looking for a weight loss method, you may not be eligible for a Thigh Lift. Meanwhile, those suffering from poor skin elasticity may benefit from a lift. Scheduling a consultation for a thigh lift in Baltimore with Dr. Birely can further help you determine your candidacy.
During your initial consultation, you will discuss your health, and the different surgical options available to you. An evaluation of your current health status will take place, including detailed measurements. From these discussions and your medical history, Dr. Birely will determine what method suits you best. Although your thigh lift will be individual to you, you may expect some standardized steps during a procedure.
Dr. Birely will make incisions according to the areas predetermined for treatment. By reshaping and tightening the tissue, he will create the desired proportions.
Extra skin will be reduced and moved to reduce unwanted bulging or sagging. Finally, sutures or adhesives will be applied to maintain and support your new shape.
With Dr. Birely, You Can Expect A Smooth Recovery
To prepare for recovery, it is important to educate yourself about expectations and possible outcomes. As with most surgical procedures, there is a risk of infection. Following care instructions can help you avoid any health complications. After your procedure, bandages and dressings will be applied to the incisions. Dr. Birely will give you individualized care instructions based on your specific surgery.
You may also be given a compression garment to avoid swelling. You will be given medication to alleviate discomfort and be informed about appropriate activity levels. Walking is encouraged, as it can improve healing and lower your health risks. Patient discomfort may take one or two weeks to subside and full recovery will take up to several weeks.
The results of your procedure are usually immediately noticeable, but the complete look of your thighs will take up to a few months to appear. The smooth contoured look of your thighs should last long after your operation.
