Thighplasty, also known as thigh lift, is a surgical procedure that is designed to improve the appearance of the thighs. The procedure involves removing excess skin and fat from the inner or outer thighs to create a smoother and more toned appearance.
How is the Procedure Done?
The procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia and can take several hours to complete. The surgeon will make incisions on the inner or outer thighs, depending on the area of concern. They will then remove excess skin and fat and reposition the remaining tissue to create a more attractive contour. The incisions are then closed with sutures or staples.
What is the Post-Op Process like?
After the surgery, patients will experience swelling and discomfort, which can be managed with pain medication. They will also need to wear compression garments for several weeks to minimize swelling and promote healing. Patients should avoid strenuous physical activity during the initial recovery period, and they may need to take time off work to recover fully.
How Much Does it Cost?
The average cost in the United States varies between $6,000 and $12,000. In Colombia, the procedure is 30-50% less.
