The upper leg/thigh area has become a problematic area as it begins to age. Many think that the thighs remain immune to diet and exercise after immense weight loss. Fat cells, cellulite, and excess skin is collected on the thighs, making the thigh look heavier, older, and less fit than they’re actually supposed to look. Droopy skin on the thighs can also make many people feel self-conscious about their appearance. Some people achieve great results with vigorous exercise and a good diet, but many don’t.
Luckily, plastic surgery is offering a relatively ideal solution in the form of thigh lift surgery. Thigh lift in Dubai is a great way to attain firmer and nice-looking upper legs. This surgery is helpful specifically for those who have to struggle with loose, excess skin as a result of weight loss. The surgery involves removing excess skin, fat, and tissue to tone and refine the upper legs.
There are many methods available to plastic surgeons which allow them to customize the thigh lift surgery to the exact needs of each individual patient. Your doctor will work and discuss with you to develop a customized surgical plan that suits a patient’s unique needs and objectives so the patient can enjoy attractive looking legs. If a patient’s thighs begin to sag, a thigh lift can help giving the patient a trimmer and a younger looking appearance. Many patients who have the desire to improve the appearance of their thighs are the target market for thighplasty, but the patient will have to meet requirements to qualify for the surgery. These criteria will help keep the patient safe and secure during the surgery and maximize the chances for achieving a better look.
Classically, a patient is eligible for a thigh lift if he/she:
- Has unwanted skin and soft tissue along the thighs – The plastic surgeon may be able to eradicate thin layers of fat cells during the surgery, but thighplasty was not developed for this reason and is no replacement for regular exercise, good diet and nutrition.
- Maintains a stable weight – If the patient has not yet reached his weight loss goals, losing further weight can cause thigh tissue to droop again. Furthermore, gaining excess weight after the surgery can also hamper with the results. Surgeons may be able to work with the patient to settle on a target weight for this surgery.
- Is in good general health – Conditions such as diabetes can compromise the patient’s ability to recover well or safely go under the required amount of anesthesia.
- Does not smoke – Smoking can disturb the healing process and increase the patients risk for complications. If the patient does smoke, he may become a candidate for thighplasty if he agrees to stop smoking for a certain period of time before and after the surgery.
- Is not an excessive alcoholic – this can also impair the recovery process and raise risks of complications.
- Is mentally healthy – this is because plastic surgery can be both physically and emotionally strenuous.
- Has realistic prospects for the surgery – Surgeons provide patients with more information about potential results.
- Can stick to maintaining a good healthy diet and exercising after the patient’s thigh lift to preserve results.
It does not matter if the patient is not a viable candidate for a thigh lift, the surgeon can recommend a different procedure to help the patient enhance the appearance of his/her thighs.
