Bulky, sagging thighs can minimize your wardrobe choices and prohibit you from feeling confident and secure in your appearance. With over 20 years of expertise addressing troubling skin laxity in the upper legs, Dr. Bernard Shuster can effectively restore a slimmer, more sculpted physique and a revitalized self-image.
How is a Thigh Lift Done?
The thigh lift procedure is performed under general anesthesia. Prior to surgery, Dr. Shuster will mark out the area of skin to be removed while you are standing up. This also gives you the opportunity to review the surgical plan.
Dr. Shuster’s approach is to remove skin along the inner aspect of the thigh, and he places an emphasis on tightening more than just the skin. He also tightens deeper layers, as he’s found over the years that these structures are of equal importance in terms of achieving the best results.
There will be scars along the inner part of the thighs; however, Dr. Shuster takes every precaution to minimize their appearance throughout the procedure.
A thigh lift usually takes around three hours to complete and is regularly combined with other body contouring procedures such as liposuction. Thigh lift patients will stay in the hospital overnight to ensure the utmost care and attention.
