Inner Thigh Lift
Individuals who undergo a massive weight loss procedure are oftentimes left with excess skin in various areas of the body. One of the most affected areas is the inner thigh; loose, sagging skin can be physically and psychologically bothersome. Those who have excess skin in their inner thighs may wish to visit Dr. Pertsch at either his Mountain View or San Mateo practice to discuss inner thigh lift surgery.
During a consultation with Dr. Pertsch, patients will undergo an examination, discuss the procedure details, and address any questions/concerns. Because every patient has a unique anatomy and desired outcome, every procedure is personalized to meet his/her needs. It is Dr. Pertsch’s goal to create satisfying and natural-looking results for every patient.
A thigh lift is a plastic surgery procedure to remove loose skin from the thighs. Successful and sustained massive weight loss can lead to extensive redundancy of skin in the inner thigh area. Constant rubbing together of the redundant inner thigh folds predisposes to areas of skin irritation and infection and interferes with personal hygiene. Clothing may be difficult to fit and there may be psychosocial concerns of a disfigured appearance. Comfort and appearance improve by the plastic surgery procedure known as the thigh lift.
Many women and men who have experienced great weight loss are often left with excess skin. When the thigh lift procedure is performed, Dr. Pertsch tightens loose and sagging skin around the thighs and trims away the excess. Through incisions made along the inner thigh, his skin can be pulled up and tightened creating a permanent alteration. It is important for patients to be aware that this procedure may produce permanent scars; however, these will become faint over time. In some circumstances, liposuction surgery may be combined in order to remove any stubborn fatty deposits present. Performing these procedures simultaneously can help provide an optimal enhancement.
Like all surgical procedures, there is the risk of infections and/or complications if proper aftercare is not followed. Patients should be sure to follow all pre- and post-operative instructions in order to ensure a healthy recovery. You may anticipate a slender, smoother leg contour as a result of inner thigh lift surgery.
Results of this procedure are long-lasting and provide patients with a greater sense of confidence in the appearance of their thighs. In addition, many individuals have been able to participate in physical activities now that there is no longer any chaffing or discomfort in the inner thigh area.
In order to determine if this is the most appropriate procedure to meet your desired goal, be sure to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Pertsch. In addition, you may view images of previous patient results during your visit.
