Risk and Recovery Considerations on Thigh Lift Surgery Utah

The inner and outer thighs are not supposed to be of any cosmetic concern – unless they predominantly appear to be filled up with loose skin and sagging fatty tissue. For many women, especially those who are fond of occasional wearing of shorts, skirts and bikinis, extra large thighs make them squirm and too conscious about their overall body shape. Thus, it is only understandable that a thigh lift procedure is considered in these cases to fix the problem.

A thigh lift surgery or thighplasty is specifically intended to remove the loose skin and sagging fatty tissue over the inner and outer thighs. This is almost akin to toning your thighs after all the exercising and dieting have failed.

For Utah Plastic Surgeon Dr. York Yates, the procedure is normally undertaken on patients who have just experienced a significant weight loss but find their sagging thighs to be a “leftover” concern. The board-certified plastic surgeon has impressive track record in making a thigh firmer and much more contoured and tight.

But like any surgical procedure, there are accompanying risks  with thigh lift surgery Utah. You may be experiencing mild bruises and swelling, and such swelling may resolve in over 3 to 6 weeks post-surgery yet. You may also experience moderate discomfort as your incisions and sutures are healing. It will likely take about a week before you can return to work and wait up 2 to 3 weeks before you may increase exercise activities. Moreover, it will take about 3 to 6 months from post-surgery when you can already see the full results of the thighplasty operation.
