About

Thigh Lift

The thighs are one of the most prominent parts of the lower body. Having perfectly curved and shapely thighs gives a stunning and perfect look to the overall figure of the individual. However, many times the thighs lose their shape and start looking saggy and droopy. Sometimes, they also look heavier and out of proportion with the overall figure of the body. This can be a cause of embarrassment as heavy and unshapely thighs draw a lot of negative attention. This also restricts the freedom of choosing clothes as people often move away from skinny jeans and shorts.

Dr Santosh Bhatia of Vanity Cosmetic Clinic provides a perfect solution to achieve toned, taut and perfectly proportioned thighs with the help of Thigh Lift Surgery.

What Is

Thigh Lift?

A Thigh lift  involves slimming down the thighs by getting rid of the fat and the sagging skin. Fat can easily accumulate over time due to different reasons like heredity, health reasons, pregnancy and unhealthy lifestyle. Ageing can also have a negative impact and lead to sagging, loose skin on the thighs. A thigh lift takes care of unshapely thighs due to all of these and various other reasons.

The excess fat is removed from inner as well as outer thighs to ensure an even removal of fat.  This ensures an even and proportionate result which looks appealing and in accordance with the overall appearance of an individual.

Who Is

An Ideal Candidate For Thigh Lift?

Dr Santosh Bhatia has listed down certain conditions for an ideal candidate to undergo a Thigh Lift:

  • An individual above 18 years of age.
  • An overall healthy Individual.
  • A non-smoker (or ready to give up smoking for a period prescribed by Dr Bhatia).
  • The individual is unhappy with the shape of the size.
  • Please note that getting a thigh lift done is not a good idea if you are succumbing to peer or societal pressure. Undergoing this procedure should be a well-thought decision that you make for yourself.

What to

EXPECT BEFORE THE Thigh Lift?

Dr Santosh Bhatia will need to know the entirety of the medical history in order to carry out the process smoothly and without any complications. The doctor will also ask you to undergo a few blood and urine tests in order to check for any impending issues.

Also, the doctor will click a few pictures to analyze the difference in result after the process is complete.

How Is

Thigh Lift Performed At Vanity Cosmetic Clinic?

  • The first step involves the administration of anesthesia. General or local anesthesia along with intravenous sedation is preferred. This ensures that the patient does not feel any discomfort during the ongoing process.
  • For shaping the Inner thighs (Median), an incision is made at the groin area and the excess skin and fat is removed. If an excess amount of fat is removed, then this surgery is deemed as thighplasty.
  • The shaping of Outer thighs (Lateral) is more complex as it also involves contouring the buttocks. There is extensive removal of fat and excess skin. The skin is stretched taut after the surgery hence it is less elastic.
  • After fat and excess skin is removed from both the outer and the inner thighs, the incisions are closed with the help of stitches or sutures.

How Is

The Recovery After Thigh Lift LIke?

Step 1

Compression garments have to be mandatorily worn in order to maintain the newly formed body contour. Sometimes, drains might be placed at those sites in order to remove the fluid which might get accumulated. 

Step 2

Medicines might be prescribed by the doctor in order to alleviate the pain which generally accompanies the procedure. These must be taken as prescribed by the doctor in order to have a comfortable recovery.

Step 3

It takes about a week for the patient to resume the daily activities. However, vigorous exercise must be avoided for at least 4 weeks after the procedure.

Step 4

Routine follow ups must be taken with Dr Santosh Bhatia in order to analyse the healing process as well as the results.
