It is very common for excess fat and inelastic skin to accumulate in the thighs. Although this may be difficult to address with even the strictest diet and exercise, there are options to improve the look of the thighs and give them a smoother, more toned appearance. With thigh lift surgery (thighplasty), Dr. Daniel Casper can remove excess skin from the thighs with beautiful results.
The Thigh Lift Procedure
A thigh lift typically begins with an incision made along the groin creases as part of an ellipse that extends down the thigh to remove all excess skin. The incision's length will depend upon the amount of excess skin. Dr. Casper will reduce the excess, inelastic skin and then tighten the remainder to create a more taut and smooth appearance in the thighs. Liposuction may also be utilized in the case of excess fat pockets. Dr. Casper will make any residual scarring as light and undetectable as possible.
Dr. Casper is one of the best thigh lift surgeons in Los Angeles, he can perform this as an outpatient procedure and typically takes about two hours to complete.
Thigh Lift Recovery
After thigh lift surgery, you will wear compression garments for a brief period to help the thighs heal during recovery. There will be some bruising and swelling after surgery; however, any discomfort can be managed with medication. Many patients are able to resume normal daily activities after a week. However, most patients may need two to three weeks after surgery before going back to regular routines. Dr. Casper will advise you to avoid strenuous activities for several weeks after thigh lift surgery. Dr. Casper's extensive experience in cosmetic surgery has earned him a reputation as one of the best thigh lift surgeons in Los Angeles.
