Flabby skin and tissue on the thighs are caused by loss of elasticity due to genetics, weight gain or weight loss, aging, and chronic UV and sun exposure. When a healthy diet and exercise are not enough to reveal firm, toned, and shapely thighs, our board-certified plastic surgeon can help you with how to take it to the next level.
A mini thigh lift in Houston is essentially just a smaller version of a thigh lift. The primary goal is to reduce the circumference of the thighs, eliminating unwanted and stubborn fat while also lifting sagging skin. A mini thigh lift differs from the full procedure in that it is not as invasive and only impacts the most inner part of the thigh.
When performed by Dr. Deigni, the mini thigh lift in Houston effectively and expertly:
Because it is less invasive than a typical thighplasty, you will also experience a faster recovery time.
You are an ideal candidate for the mini thigh lift if you are generally in good physical health but you simply have an abundance of skin and fatty tissue on the upper thighs you want to get rid of. Perhaps you find it is chafing when you walk or you just want to get that desirable “thigh gap.” Some patients do not feel they need the full procedure and only want to have a little bit of work done to achieve their ideal look.
Before your surgical procedure, you will need to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Deigni. He will assess your potential treatment area, learn what you are hoping to get out of it, and determine which procedure will suit your needs. In addition, our medical team will conduct a thorough review, ensuring that you understand the risks, downtime, and recovery involved in a Houston mini thigh lift procedure.
This procedure takes approximately two hours and will be performed in our same day surgical facility while you are under general anesthesia. During the procedure itself, Dr. Deigni will make a small incision in the crease of the groin (to minimize the eventual scar), remove any excess fat, and tighten the skin of your inner thighs.
Following the procedure, we will monitor you to ensure that there are no complications before you are cleared to leave. Your legs will be sore so you will need to have someone drive you home. For the first few weeks, or as directed by our medical team, be sure to avoid exercise or vigorous movement. It is always crucial to follow a healthy, balanced diet with adequate hydration. The less-invasive nature of the mini thigh lift means you should be recovered within a month or so.
There is an alternative for patients who wish to improve the look of their thighs but do not necessarily want or need a full thighplasty treatment. The benefits of a mini thigh lift in Houston are numerous, including the expedited recovery time.
