Cosmetic Surgery New Jersey – Thigh and Body Lift
Following substantial weight loss, excess skin can hang from the hips, outer and inner thighs. Removal of excess skin can create a new, smoother contour. While liposuction will make you thinner, a lift will make you look younger.
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, 16,517 men and women across the country underwent a thigh lift in 2012. An additional 10,941 had a buttock lift or augmentation.
“I really don’t know where to begin, words really can’t express how happy you have made me. I am so happy with myself. I love going shopping, wearing tight clothes, etc. I never thought I would have gone through surgery but because of you and your staff, especially Angela, you guys made me feel so comfortable. On the day of my surgery, I was having second thoughts and Angela just made me feel so confident about myself. I really don’t know how to thank you. NO REGRETS.” —Body Lift Patient
The final incision for an outer thigh and buttock lift extends from hip to hip across the top of the buttocks. The incision for an inner thigh lift is concealed in the groin crease. Both are hidden with normal underwear or bathing suit.
Thigh and Body Lift are performed under general anesthesia usually as an outpatient. Thigh & Body Lift procedures are often combined with abdominoplasty and liposuction. Pain is adequately controlled with oral medication. Patients return to sedentary work within one to two weeks and may slowly resume exercise in four to six weeks.
