Thigh Lift Houston
Thighplasty in The Woodlands, Conroe, Kingwood, Sugarland, Katy, Spring and Houston, TX
Thigh lift is the procedure to remove excess skin and fat deposits in the inner aspect of the thigh. Women in particular tend to develop a fatty collection in this area that results in unpleasant contour deformities.
Dr. Cortés will assess the amount of skin and fat in order to give you a gradual surgical approach that will, in certain cases, minimize the scarring. Depending on the degree of fat and quality of the skin, liposuction alone might be enough to reach a good result. Liposuction can also be combined with skin incision.
The surgery can be done as inpatient (in the hospital), if additional procedures are done at the same time like a tummy tuck. Most commonly, the procedure can be done as an outpatient, if performed alone. The surgery usually takes about two to four (2-4) hours. Complications associated with this procedure include: infection, bleeding, and scar widening. Since only skin and fat are removed, muscle function remains unaffected.
Patients will need to wear a garment for three to four (3- 4) weeks, if liposuction is performed. Most patiens will return to work in seven to ten (7-10) days.
