Thigh Lift Surgery
Naples Plastic Surgery
Gardner Plastic Surgery is highly acclaimed throughout the Naples, Florida area for surgical expertise, state-of-the-art facilities, and confidence-inspiring rapport with patients. Dr. Leopoldo Baccaro and the team at Gardner Plastic Surgery strive to help all thigh lift patients reach their aesthetic goals by reducing excess skin and fat around the thighs to produce tighter and better proportioned contours of the upper legs.
Dramatic weight loss, aging, and a loss of skin elasticity can all lead to sagging skin around the thighs. Sagging thighs can cause patients to be self-conscious and instill a negative body image, especially when exercise, diet and healthy living fail to rectify the condition. A thigh lift— “thighplasty”—removes excess fat and tightens skin around the thighs to restore the contours of the legs. Dr. Baccaro offers the thighplasty in consultation with his patients as a stand-alone procedure, or as part of a tummy tuck or mommy makeover.
Thighplasty in Naples
Prior to any procedure, Dr. Baccaro meets with his patients on a confidential one-on-one basis in order to get know the patient and fully determine his or her aesthetic goals. This results in the formation of a personalized treatment plan designed to help the patient achieve maximum results from their plastic surgery experience.
A thighplasty can include an inner (medial) thigh lift, an outer thigh lift, or both. As suggested the former is designed to address the contours of the inner thigh, while the latter takes care of proportioning the outer thigh. Dr. Baccaro can perform the outer thigh lift in conjunction with the tummy tuck procedure, in a combination known as an extended tummy tuck. In select patients, both procedures can be performed simultaneously.
With both thigh lift procedures, Dr. Baccaro carefully determines and marks incision sites based on contouring/surgical needs and to ensure minimal visible scarring. The use of liposuction for the removal of excess fat deposits may be recommended for some patients. When possible, the procedures will be combined, but in some cases the liposuction may have to be performed first as a separate procedure several months prior to the thighplasty.
Recovering from Thigh Lift Surgery
The surgical center at Gardner Plastic Surgery was designed and built with a focus on patients’ comfort and offers state of the art technology. Gardner Plastic Surgery features several spa-like amenities that provide patients the ultimate level of relaxation during their consultation. Throughout each patient’s aesthetic journey, Dr. Baccaro and his team are devoted to ensuring full patient satisfaction and a healthy recovery.
Thighplasty patients who receive cosmetic surgery generally need two to three weeks of recovery downtime, including a first week of limited movement. All patients receive a full briefing of follow-up protocols that will help foster safe and speedy recovery times.
