Even the best diet and exercise efforts can’t address sagging skin. For those troubled by excess skin on their lower body, a thigh lift can offer a smoother, tighter and more proportional appearance.
In Fort Wayne, Indiana thigh lift surgery reduces excess soft tissue along the inner and outer thigh. When paired with liposuction to remove excess fat, a thigh lift can dramatically change the contour of your lower body.
If you are a healthy non-smoker whose weight is relatively stable, and you are committed to maintaining a healthy diet and exercise, you could be a good candidate for a thigh lift.
If you are considering a thigh lift, you are encouraged to schedule a consultation at our Fort Wayne location. The first step is to meet with Dr. Lee. He will take the time to get to know you and talk about why you want to undergo a thigh lift procedure.
Be prepared to share your medical history, including previous surgeries, medical conditions, drug allergies and current medications. Dr. Lee will conduct an exam to assess the elasticity of your skin, take measurements of your lower body and take photos for your records.
It is important that you be as close to your ideal weight as possible before undergoing a thigh lift. If you lose weight after your procedure, your tightened skin will again be loose and sag. If you gain weight after your procedure, you will stretch your tightened skin or undo the results of your thigh lift.
You may need to lose weight before undergoing a thigh lift, as excessive heaviness in the lower body will slowly reverse the results of your lift. Dr. Lee may recommend liposuction with your thigh lift if you have excess fat in your lower body. As a certified surgeon, patients from the Angola, Warsaw, and Huntington areas can trust Dr. Lee’s experience.
