For those who would like to improve their body contour, or have lost a great deal of weight, a ‘lift’ may be a good solution. A thigh or gluteal lift is plastic surgery that removes and repositions excess skin and fat. Diet and exercise should be an ongoing effort to maintain desirable body shape, and a lift can maximize the positive effects of this healthy lifestyle.
Drs. Thomas and Jeffries performs this procedure at the hospital or surgical center, usually on an outpatient basis. Because a lift involves surgical incisions, healing is gradual with most patients resuming full activity in four to six weeks. Temporary discomfort such as bruising, swelling and numbness is common.
