Cellulite, loose skin, and excess fat on the outer and inner thighs are common concerns after weight loss, pregnancy, and aging. These cosmetic concerns could negatively impact someone’s self-confidence and create difficulty wearing specific clothing items for some individuals. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your thighs for similar reasons, consider the long-term surgical enhancements of a thigh lift in Encino.
Since this body sculpting surgery could take several approaches for contouring specific areas of your thighs, the first step is discussing your cosmetic goals for thigh lift surgery with Dr. Yaghoubian. For instance, you could target the inner or outer thigh areas with surgery or undergo a mini procedure for more minor cosmetic concerns. Call to schedule a consultation at AESTHETICA LA to hear the different surgical approaches and possibilities for your final results with a licensed plastic surgeon.
Thigh lift procedures in Encino offer a variety of appearance improvements by removing excess skin and fat that causes visible sagging and cellulite. For instance, by slimming the thighs, the operation balances a patient’s body proportions and reduces the struggles that come with trying to fit into certain pieces of clothing. Additionally, the surgery could create more youthful-looking legs with firmer, smoother skin and more defined contours.
Beyond the cosmetic benefits, one of the main motivations for thigh lift patients is the boost in confidence after surgery due to a more visibly contoured figure, potentially giving them the freedom to engage in more revealing clothing options, such as swimwear. In addition, although thigh lift surgery leaves visible scarring afterward, it could be reduced, depending on the surgical approach and incision placement.
After thigh lift surgery, patients must maintain a stable weight to preserve their surgical results for longer. If a patient undergoes pregnancy or significant weight changes after surgery, the visible enhancements from a thigh lift may diminish entirely.
Dr. Yaghoubian offers her patients various surgical approaches to contour specific areas of the legs and thighs.
An outer or bilateral thigh lift is the best option for targeting the front and outer portions of the thighs and legs. The procedure slims the outer thigh contours while additionally removing excess fat and skin from the waist and buttocks. Though scarring may be more extensive, an outer thigh lift could significantly enhance a patient’s lower body contours beyond the outer thighs.
An inner or medial thigh lift targets the areas with loose skin and excess body fat between a patient’s groin and knees but may focus on the upper or lower portions if desired. Depending on the main areas of focus for surgery, the incision placement could be primarily around the groin to reduce visibility. In addition, an inner thigh lift may require liposuction before reshaping and removing tissue and skin to redefine thigh contours for some patients.
A mini thigh lift may be the right surgery for individuals with minimal amounts of extra fat deposits and loose or sagging skin. The operation focuses on slimming and enhancing the upper areas of the inner thighs, primarily around the groin. Though a mini thigh lift results in the least amount of scarring, the results are less dramatic than an inner or outer thigh lift.
Whether you are unhappy with your inner or outer thigh areas, you could have long-term cosmetic improvements from a thigh lift in Encino. The procedure makes noteworthy enhancements by removing extra fat and loose skin to highlight and balance your contours. Furthermore, most patients feel significantly more confident in their appearance and wardrobe choices afterward.
Though a full recovery typically takes up to eight weeks, thigh lift results could last for many years after surgery if you maintain a stable weight and follow healthy lifestyle habits.
