Your thigh area can look trim, taut, youthful and attractive — or over large, loose, and dimpled. When the thighs have accumulated excess fat and lost the firmness associated with youth, our thigh lift in Seattle procedure can restore a sculpted look to your lower body.
During an outer thigh lift, a bikini-line incision that goes from the back to the sides of your upper buttock area is made. Significant attention is paid to create an incision that hides under a bikini or revealing undergarments.
If you have an inner thigh lift, an incision is placed in the groin area. For patients who have lost a lot of weight and have significant skin excess, an incision will be made down the inner part of the thigh past the knees. In both cases, the length of the incision will vary based on the extent of tissue and fat to be removed.
Dr. Egrari uses extreme care and precision to reduce the risk of visible scars. Most scars will appear as a very thin line (almost invisible) after full recovery, and will be hidden under even the most revealing clothing. Liposuction is often employed to improve the shape and loosen the skin to allow for thigh reshaping. Dr. Egrari uses one of the most advanced liposuction devices to increase effectiveness and speed recovery time. The outer thighs are elevated and reshaped. In an inner thigh lift, the skin and fat are reshaped so the inner area of the upper legs appears youthful, slim, and trim.
Occasionally, fat transfer is used to improve thigh skin quality and reduce dimpling. Fat is harvested and added to smooth out any depressions for a smoother look.
A fat transfer procedure is both safe and effective, providing long-lasting results that look and feel natural. This is an outpatient plastic surgery procedure performed under general anesthesia. Whether you have an outer or inner thigh lift, the procedure typically takes two to three hours to complete, after which you can return home to rest and recover.
