For a comprehensive body sculpting experience, you may want to consider a body and thigh lift at Plastic Surgery Consultants. This customizable treatment can be used to deliver a range of body contouring results. We offer this and other body sculpting treatments to men and women living in Lexington County, Richland County, and the surrounding areas of South Carolina.
What is a Body and Thigh Lift?
Body and thigh lifts are extensive body sculpting procedures that can target large areas of the body to produce significant contouring results. The techniques used for these procedures can be modified to fit each patient’s needs, even those who have concerns in multiple areas. These can also be performed in combination with other procedures, including a butt lift, mommy makeover, liposuction, and more.
What is the Difference Between an Upper and Lower Body Lift?
An upper body lift is a comprehensive procedure that focuses on the torso, eliminating excess skin from the abdomen and back. This can also include a brachioplasty, or arm lift, in some cases. A lower body lift will focus on the lower half of the body. This can still include some focus on the abdomen, although the majority of the attention will be on the legs and butt. Either of these lifts can be combined with liposuction to produce more significant body sculpting results.
How to Get a Thigh Gap
A thigh gap is a cosmetic feature that many find desirable, although it can be difficult to attain even with regular exercise and a clean diet. For patients who are trying to achieve a thigh gap, a thigh lift can be an effective solution. By lifting the skin and sculpting the legs, patients often achieve a contoured appearance that they are confident in.
What is the Difference Between Inner and Outer Thigh Lifts?
Although these procedures are often performed together, inner and outer thigh lifts can also be performed separately if a patient is concerned with only one area of the legs. An inner thigh lift will target the inside of the legs, and can help reduce the size of the legs and prevent discomfort caused by the legs rubbing together. An outer thigh lift will cover a larger area, addressing the outer thighs and extending to underneath the buttocks.
What is Recovery Like Following a Body and Thigh Lift?
The recovery period following your body and thigh lift surgery will largely depend on the procedures performed and the areas treated. During your consultation with Dr. Wassermann, he will develop a personalized treatment plan in order to best accomplish your cosmetic goals. At this time, he will be able to tell you what you can expect regarding treatment, recovery, and post-operative care. Generally, most body and thigh lift patients are able to return to work and other non-strenuous activities within two to three weeks of treatment.
How Much Does a Body and Thigh Lift Cost?
The cost of your body and thigh lift will vary depending on your specific treatment goals. To determine the exact cost of treatment, we invite you to schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Wassermann. During your consultation, you will work with Dr. Wassermann to develop a personalized treatment plan that will satisfy your unique cosmetic goals. At this point, we will be able to provide you with the full cost of treatment. To help make our treatments accessible to those who need them, we accept a variety of payment options as well as financing through CareCredit®.
