If you are wondering what the difference is between an inner thigh lift and an extended inner thigh lift, you have reached the right place. An inner thigh lift eliminates excess skin and fat on the top half of the inner thigh. An extended inner thigh lift is an extension of this procedure down to the knee (and occasionally towards the back of the thigh).
An extended inner (medial) thigh lift in Houston can provide many physical, emotional, and mental benefits. First and foremost, well-defined thighs will give you an attractive, smooth, slim, and shapely silhouette, free of excess, sagging skin and drooping, fatty tissue from your inner thighs. This procedure will also help fade away unseemly marks of cellulite and dimples. Dr. Olivier Deigni is a highly skilled body sculpting surgeon and can guide you through this process.
This surgery is ideal for you if you are generally in good health with no serious chronic health conditions. You will obtain the most optimal results if you are a non-smoker who can commit to a healthy, non-smoking lifestyle. To maintain your results, we also expect you to commit to a healthy and active lifestyle post-surgery so that you can preserve your beautiful new body.
Though most of our clients are suitable candidates for this procedure, there are a few that may not safely meet the criteria. In this case, our expert medical team may recommend some non-surgical options that can produce cosmetic results.
The extended inner (medial) thigh lift will occur in our Houston surgical center and is similar to our standard inner (medial) thigh lift; except it is better suited for patients who have a substantial amount of fat an loose skin on their thigh down to the knees.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Deigni will determine if you would benefit from the extended thigh lift or for the standard inner thigh lift. Our medical team will take your complete medical history, expertly assess your needs, and how best to perform the extended inner thigh lift procedure. To ensure a smooth procedure and recovery, we may recommend lifestyle changes, such as eliminating smoking, drinking, recreational drugs, and certain medications—this is in the best interest of your health since these activities can interfere with the healing process.
As with all surgical procedures, your extended inner thigh lift will be performed under anesthesia to ensure that you are comfortable throughout the surgery. As with the standard inner thigh lift, Dr. Deigni will carefully and artfully remove excess skin and fat on the inside of the thigh from the groin to the knee (sometimes going to the back of the thigh), and pulling the remaining skin back tighter.
Following your surgery, you will be monitored closely by our medical team to ensure there are no complications. Once you are given the all-clear, you are free to leave. You will need to have someone drive you home since your legs will be sore and need to rest.
For the first few weeks, you must avoid exercise or vigorous movement. Under no circumstances do you want to over-exert or extend your legs. There may be some soreness and bruising on your thighs initially. After a few weeks, you can slowly begin to ease into your normal routine. We typically recommend to our clients to follow a healthy, active lifestyle to maintain their beautiful new figure: this involves indulging in a healthy diet, ensuring adequate hydration, and engaging in a good exercise routine.
The care you receive at our clinic does not end with your surgery! To monitor your progress and results, we may schedule follow-up appointments to check on the progress of your thighs and make sure you are satisfied with your results.
