Thigh Lift Mexico
Improves the appearance of the upper legs.
A thigh lift is a surgical body contouring procedure that can give the thighs a tighter and more toned appearance through the removal of excess loose skin and small pockets of fat. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jorge Echeagaray offers thigh lift surgery for men and women in Mexico who want slimmer and tighter-looking thighs.
A thigh lift refers to a variety of operations that remove skin and fat from the upper leg (thigh) area in order to improve contours by removing bulk and loose soft tissues.
Two to four and one half hours depending on the amount of tissue to be removed. Usually requires at least one position change and re-prepping and draping as patients are switched from front to back or vice versa.
The anesthesia can be general or local with sedation.
Both options are possible.
Possible Side Effects
The most common side effect is wound breakdown at the intersection of suture lines in the groin because of excessive stretch of the tight closure caused by patient movement. Widened scars can also occur because of tension in these areas.
Similar to risks associated with any surgery, including infection, hematoma and fluid collection. Pulmonary embolism is a remote possibility.
The cost of your thigh lift will be based on the type of thigh lift performed and other factors. Dr. Echeagaray can go over the expected cost of your thigh lift during your consultation.
Thigh Lift Recovery
Requires three to four weeks of restricted movement including no spreading of the legs or excessive flexion. This procedure is best done in colder months of the year because special post-operative garment wear for support is important. In most cases, pain can be managed with over-the-counter medication. There will be some swelling and bruising around the days. These issues will subside over the course of your recovery. Dr. Echeagaray will provide you with post-operative instructions to help you through the process.
Thigh Lift Results
This type of surgery is generally well tolerated and appreciated by patients. It can take several weeks or months to see the full results of your thigh lift. The results provided should be long-lasting. Maintaining a consistent body weight will help to preserve the results of your thigh lift.
