What is a Thigh and Body Lift?
A thigh and body lift is a cosmetic procedure that helps to enhance the contours of the upper and lower body. The surgery is most often recommended for men and women who have recently lost a significant amount of weight.
How Do I Get a Thigh Gap?
A thigh gap is the space between your legs when you stand straight with your legs together. You may not have a thigh gap if you have excess fat on the inner thighs. Each person’s anatomy is unique, so not everyone can achieve the same amount of a thigh gap.
What are Inner and Outer Thigh Lifts?
The inner and outer thighs are prone to developing pockets of fat and loose skin. An inner thigh lift helps the inside portion of your leg, and an outer thigh lift helps the upper part of the thigh up to the hip bone.
What are Upper and Lower Body Lifts?
An upper body lift removes fat and excess skin on the arms, breasts and back. A lower body lift helps the abdomen, buttocks and thighs.
What are the Benefits of a Thigh and Body Lift?
A person may choose to have a thigh and body lift when areas of fat and loose skin are problematic, such as reduced self-esteem, being unable to find clothing that fits and feeling uncomfortable in clothes that reveal the areas.
What is the Procedure for a Thigh and Body Lift?
Your thigh and body lift may include:
- Breast lift, augmentation or reduction
- Thigh lift
- Tummy tuck
What Should I Expect After a Thigh and Body Lift?
To the extent possible, Dr. Barbour combines procedures into a single surgical appointment. This reduces your total healing time from a thigh and body lift. You will need several months to recover after each surgery.
Is the Cost of a Thigh and Body Lift Covered by Insurance?
The thigh and body lift is not covered by insurance. Barbour Plastic Surgery offers financing options for qualified patients.
