Thigh Lift in Las Vegas
One of the most common concerns for men and women after significant weight loss is the loose skin in their thigh area. It can be difficult to achieve improvement in this area through exercise alone. A thigh lift, or thighplasty, helps to reshape the thighs by removing excess skin and fatty tissue.
Dr. Alexander offers high-quality care in Las Vegas for patients looking to improve the shape and size of their thighs.
“I heavily researched 2 surgeons and am so glad I went with Dr. Alexander. His bedside manner is the best I have ever seen and I deal with physicians on a regular basis for work. He addressed my concerns and anxiety I had about the actual surgery. I appreciated how accessible the office was after the surgery when I had questions. I would highly recommend Dr. Alexander to anyone looking for a very personal and professional experience.”
“Dr. Alexander and his staff are incredible. He is one of the most caring and professional surgeons I have ever met - and that is saying something because I work in a hospital. The staff are equally incredible and kind. They go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable. 5 months ago Dr. Alexander performed a breast augmentation surgery and the results are so natural my friends did not even notice I am 3 cups bigger! I have already referred Dr. Alexander to close friends. He is the best in the Valley.”
“Doctor Alexander is a miracle and made my experience exceptional, he really listened to my concerns and answered all my questions regarding the whole procedure. He made my breasts look like sisters again, I would even recommend him to my daughter and anyone looking for a breast augmentation or exchange. He is not your typical plastic surgeon and he really cares about your outcome. He is the best!!”
Things to Consider Prior to Thigh Lift Surgery
Thigh lift scars are inevitable as incisions are required, but your plastic surgeon will try to place them discreetly. For more dramatic thigh lift results, incisions may need to extend down the inner thigh, resulting in a more noticeable scar. Scars will fade over time.
After your surgery, your thighs may be wrapped with bandages to protect your incision sites. During your thigh lift recovery, it is important to rest and take time off work and from your daily obligations. You should avoid driving for one to two weeks, and avoid strenuous activities and exercise for four to six weeks.
Frequently Asked Questions About Arm Lift Surgery
You may be a candidate for thighplasty if you:
- Are in good health
- Are at or near your ideal weight
- Do not smoke
- Have realistic expectations of your results
The exact length of your thigh lift surgery will depend on your specific needs and the extent of correction. The length of the surgery may also be increased if other procedures are being performed simultaneously. Generally, a thigh lift surgery takes around two to three hours, and you will return home the same day to begin your recovery.
Thigh lift surgery is a common procedure with minimal risk when performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Alexander. However, there are risks involved with any surgery, including:
- Anesthesia risks
- Poor wound healing
While you may find it difficult to walk the day after thigh lift surgery, it is recommended that you take short walks to speed the healing process and allow your blood to flow.
