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.
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.
