What is a Thigh Lift?

Thighplasty, also known as thigh lift surgery, is a cosmetic procedure designed to enhance the appearance and contour of the thighs. It is a surgical intervention that targets excess skin and fat in the thigh area, resulting in slimmer, more toned, and aesthetically pleasing legs. Thighplasty is a popular choice for individuals looking to achieve smoother, firmer thighs that may have lost their natural shape due to weight fluctuations, aging, or genetics.

Thighplasty Consultation & Procedure

Before undergoing thighplasty, you will have an initial consultation with Dr. Lukavsky. During this consultation, you’ll discuss your goals and expectations. He’ll physically examine your thighs and review your medical history to create your treatment plan. You’ll be able to ask questions and discuss the procedure in detail.

The surgery generally involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the thigh area, followed by reshaping and tightening the remaining tissue to achieve a more toned and contoured appearance. The specifics of the surgery may vary depending on factors such as the amount of excess skin and fat present, the location of the incisions, and the extent of tissue tightening required.

Recovery After Thigh Lift

After your thighplasty, a period of recovery and healing is necessary. During this time, you should expect the following:

  • Swelling and bruising, which will subside over a few weeks
  • The need to wear a compression garment to support healing and reduce swelling
  • Instructions for wound care and activity limitations
  • Follow-up appointments with Dr. Lukavsky to monitor progress

Being patient during recovery is essential, as final results may take several months to become fully apparent.
