Dr. Shermak has helped many Baltimore Thighlift patients. Please read more about what to expect from the procedure below.
What is Thighlift?
Thighlift treats excess skin, fat, and contour irregularities of the thigh, smoothing and pulling the skin to achieve a tighter, more toned look. Thighlift is a powerful operation that may be performed in conjunction with abdominoplasty, backlift, and/or outer thigh liposuction. There are different approaches to Thighlift depending on patient presentation, with scars varying from those falling in the creases of the pubis and under the buttock, to scars that travel between the pubis and knee. The approach taken is agreed upon by the patient who will understand how to best achieve his/her goals.
Who is a good candidate for Thighlift?
Good candidates for Thighlift are men and women in good health who are non-smokers. Thighlift applies to massive weight loss patients and to individuals who suffer from loss of skin elasticity due to age, pregnancy or heredity. Thighlift may be combined with Abdominoplasty, Liposuction, Backlift, or Breast Surgery to rejuvenate the entire torso. During the initial consultation you will discuss with Dr. Shermak what you would like to improve so she can understand your expectations and determine how to best achieve the desired result.
What is the recovery like for Thighlift?
Surgery may be performed as an outpatient or in the hospital setting, with an overnight stay. One may experience discomfort, swelling, and numbness. Patients are up and walking within hours of surgery, but require recuperation for several weeks, maybe longer depending upon how much surgery is performed. Most resume regular activities and return to work after 3-4 weeks. Swelling and numbness may take months to resolve.
