If you have excess skin and fat over a large portion of your upper and lower body, you may be a good candidate for a body and thigh lift. Dr. Balinger offers a body and thigh lift for men and women in Houston, Conroe, and the surrounding areas of Texas.
What is a Body and Thigh Lift?
A body and thigh lift is a plastic surgery that is recommended for men and women who have extra fat and loose skin over most of the upper or lower body, including the thighs. The procedure is most often recommended for men and women who have lost a significant amount of weight.
How Much Does a Body and Thigh Lift Cost?
The average cost of a body and thigh lift is $8,000 to $15,000. Your cost is based upon the surgical plan that is developed during your personal consultation. We offer free initial consultations at our offices in Houston and Conroe, as well as financing options for our patients.
What Are the Benefits of a Body and Thigh Lift?
The primary benefit of a body and thigh lift is to restore a toned appearance to the upper or lower body. A thigh lift may also be recommended for women who want to have a thigh gap, but have excess fat on their inner thighs.
Do You Know How to Get a Thigh Gap?
Dr. Balinger cautions women who consider plastic surgery to achieve a thigh gap. The space between your thighs is not necessarily an indication of how fit you are, as hip size and other anatomical aspects determine the size of your thigh gap more than any other factor. If you have extra fat on your inner or outer thighs, a thigh lift can help.
How is an Upper and Lower Body Lift Performed?
An upper and lower body lift requires extensive incisions that are needed to pull the skin taut over the body and remove any excess. Dr. Balinger may use liposuction to remove smaller pockets of fat.
How Are Inner and Outer Thigh Lifts Performed?
Dr. Balinger uses innovative techniques for inner and outer thigh lifts, and the placement of the incision varies based on patient needs. Once the incisions are made, he pulls the tissue taunt over the thighs and trims away any excess. Liposuction may be used if you have pockets of fat on your inner or outer thighs.
What is Recovery Like After a Body and Thigh Lift?
Recovery from a body and thigh lift can be extensive, and some patients are required to stay overnight in the hospital for monitoring. During the consultation, Dr. Balinger explains what to expect after your body and thigh lift, including recovery and aftercare. Please arrange to have a friend or family member stay with you for the first one to two weeks.
How Long Will Body and Thigh Lift Results Last?
Managing your weight is paramount to the results of your body and thigh lift. We recommend that you spend at least one year following a healthy regimen of nutrition and exercise before you have a body and thigh lift. Continuing with this type of lifestyle may help the results of your body and thigh lift last for many years. Aging, pregnancy, and weight fluctuations will likely have adverse effects on the results of your body and thigh lift.
