A thigh/buttock lift removes excess buttock, hip and thigh skin due to a loss of skin elasticity of the thigh, hip, or buttock areas that has developed as a result of weight loss, aging, gravity or genetics. The procedure is intended to produce a tighter, more attractive thigh and buttock with improved contours.
Procedure: The procedure is performed under general anesthesia. Wide variations in the design of the incisions to meet clothing or personal desires are possible. Lifting the inner thighs requires only short incisions extending from the anterior/front part of the thigh/groin crease around to the buttock crease. Lateral or anterior thigh lifts can be performed as separate procedures if desired. The buttocks can be lifted with scars above the buttocks. The doctor will show you what specific procedures are available to solve your particular problem.
Results: The patient is placed in a compression garment at the end of surgery to reduce swelling and assist in the natural shrinking and tightening of the skin. Bruising and swelling usually subside within a month, strenuous activities are usually possible in 6 weeks and most symptoms are usually resolved in 4 to 6 months.
