There are a couple of reasons why you may feel embarrassed or uncomfortable to show off your legs in shorts or skirts. One of the main reasons is because you may have saggy, loose skin. Thankfully, this condition can be treated medically, allowing you to feel proud of your legs while out in the Florida heat. Instead of covering up, medical procedures are available that can help you to enjoy wearing shorts like everyone else.
Many individuals have saggy, loose skin on their thighs because they lost a lot of weight. Even though they have worked hard to exercise in order to tone their muscles and lose fat, there is really nothing they are able to do on their own about the excess skin. Other individuals begin to experience the problem of loose, sagging skin on their thighs because they are getting older.
As a person ages, their skin becomes thinner; it is not as elastic and its texture is not as smooth. Thigh lift surgery can address these problems and help a person feel great when their legs are bare.
The procedure begins with our surgeon administering anesthesia for you to be comfortable during the procedure. During the thigh lift surgery, excess skin is removed, underlying tissue is reshaped and liposuction may at times be used to remove fat. Then the skin will be draped over the thigh. This will leave the thigh looking much more proportionate and smooth.
The best way for you to find out if you are a good candidate for thigh lift surgery is to schedule a consultation with one of our surgeons at eSSe Plastic Surgery in Fort Lauderdale. We will consider your medical history and see if a thigh lift would be right for you. Normally, good candidates for thigh lift surgery are people who have a relatively stable weight.
Good candidates are also non-smokers and do not have medical conditions that would increase their risk during surgery or would impair their healing afterward. Also, it is important for a person to have a realistic idea of what the surgery will do for them.
Preparing for thigh lift surgery involves a couple of basic steps. First, a medical evaluation will be done. The medications you currently take may be adjusted, or you may be asked to completely stop taking them. If you smoke, you will be asked to stop.
Thigh lift surgery has been able to help many individuals to have toned, more attractive legs. It has often times been the last step in helping them get the body they always wanted.
