Thigh Lift San Antonio TX | Thigh Lift

"Thigh lift" is bit of a misnomer. Although, technically, a thigh lift is a surgical procedure that removes skin and fat by excision, most people think of it more broadly as thigh rejuvenation, which includes both surgical (invasive) and nonsurgical (minimally invasive) procedures. This is also a better way to think about and approach the thighs as it highlights several important points.

For one, there is no magic bullet that can produce perfect thighs in all patients! The goal should be more realistic, and based on what cosmetic issues are present. If cellulite is the issue, treatments should be focused on this. If excess skin is present, excision will likely be recommended in some form. If there are just a couple areas of bothersome fat, then liposuction is likely needed. However, for most patients, there are a combination of these issues with varying degrees of severity. The treatment plan should reflect these nuances, and Dr. Albright does just that. He will work with you to come up with an individualized plan that best fits your goals and your body!

Thigh Lift FAQ’s

What is the recovery like after thigh rejuvenation?

Your recovery will depend on what procedures are needed to address your cosmetic concerns. Minimally invasive technologies are relatively well tolerated and can be repeated over time to attempt to improve or maintain your results. Liposuction is very commonly utilized in thigh surgery and requires a bit more time for the procedure and limited activities for about 1 month after the procedure. Results will be seen in about 3-5 months. For skin removal surgeries, the recovery is the longest.  Dr. Albright will help you decide what works best for you.

Am I healthy enough for a thigh lift?

Most patients are healthy enough to undergo a thigh lift procedure. However, some patients may not be ready for a thigh lift. This is true for patients with a very high body mass index (BMI). A high BMI has been shown to lead to higher wound healing complications, and poor cosmetic outcomes. Patients who use nicotine also have these wound healing issues, and should abstain from nicotine use for 6 weeks prior to and after surgery. Finally, patients who have problems with lymphatic fluid collecting in their legs (lymphedema) or who have evidence of poor blood flow within the legs are not good candidates for these procedures. Dr. Albright and his staff will assess for these issues and try to give you some guidance on what may be appropriate in your situation.
