Conveniently located to serve Baton Rouge
A thigh lift in Baton Rouge reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin, and in some cases fat – resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body. If fitness and weight loss efforts have not achieved your goals for a body that is firmer, more youthful-looking and more proportionate to your overall body image, a surgical thigh lift, or thighplasty, may be right for you.
Your Thigh Lift Consultation
You will need to come into the office and discuss your thigh lift with Dr. John Dean before a date can be set for the surgery. Surgical goals will be discussed at length, and it will be important to be completely clear and honest regarding these goals.
You will need to tell Dr. Dean about any current and past medical conditions, past procedures, and drug allergies. You will also need to discuss any medications and supplements you are currently taking.
A physical examination will be performed, and detailed measurements will be taken. Photographs will be taken for medical records. A surgical plan will be created, and a date will be set for the procedure.
The Thigh Lift Procedure
A thigh lift usually takes around two to three hours to perform. At the start of a thigh lift, anesthesia is administered to the patient in order to make the procedure comfortable and pain-free. Once it has taken effect, an incision is created. This incision starts in the groin area and goes to the back of the thigh or to the hip.
Next, excess skin is trimmed away with a scalpel. Liposuction is used to remove pockets of stubborn excess fat, and underlying tissues are tightened. The remaining skin is redraped and tightened, and incisions are closed with the help of stitches.
Thigh Lift Healing and Recovery
During thighplasty recovery, it will be vital to follow Dr. Dean’s post-surgical care directions closely. This minimizes the chance of complications and leads to a faster recovery process.
Because swelling and bruising will be present, it will be necessary to wear a post-surgical elastic garment for a time. This garment encourages the skin to better conform to the new contours of the thighs.
Staying home from work for a time will be required. Avoid physically taxing activities like sports and heavy exercise for at least four to six weeks in order to allow the tissues and incisions to heal correctly.
Thigh Lift Cost
The type of anesthesia chosen affects the final price of a thigh lift, as does the amount of time required to perform the procedure. Additionally, thighplasty cost is impacted by the amount of tissue removed during the thigh lift and the exact techniques performed.
