An inner thigh lift (otherwise known as thighplasty) is a procedure that involves the removal of excess skin and fatty deposits from the inner thighs. The procedure reduces the amount of sagging skin and fat, enabling the thighs to regain their natural shape and look.
Sagging thighs often occur when a person has lost a lot of weight and the skin has failed to co-operate with the body’s loss of fat and slimmer shape. A build up of tissue can also occur naturally with age, while the condition can also be heredity. In conjunction with an inner thigh lift, liposuction may also be used to help remove excess fatty deposits. An inner thigh lift enables clothing and swimwear to fit better and helps to improve self-confidence.
When selecting a surgeon for an inner thigh lift, it’s critical you choose someone you can trust. Toronto-based Surgeon Dr. Daniel Martin and his team of experienced professionals will support, encourage and care for you from the initial consultation right through to your final post-surgery check-up.
Dr. Martin begins every surgical process with a personal, one-on-one consultation. During the initial consultation at his Toronto office, Dr. Martin will take thigh measurements as well as family and surgical history notes to make sure that an inner thigh lift is a safe operation for you. During this time, you are free to ask any questions, leaning on Dr. Martin’s years of personal experience for peace of mind. At the end of the consultation, you will have all the information needed to make an informed choice on whether or not to move ahead with the surgery.
Is a Toronto Inner Thigh Lift procedure a good fit for me?
If you feel that excess skin or fat on your inner thighs is hindering your ability to enjoy life to the fullest, you could be a strong candidate for an inner thigh lift. For those who have lost large amounts of weight, an inner thigh lift is an ideal procedure to remove excess skin, although checks will need to be made to ensure the weight loss does not put you at risk during the procedure. Dr. Martin and his team perform all necessary checks to a standard of excellence, ensuring every patient is safe and physically capable of handling the surgery.
Are my Toronto Thighplasty expectations reasonable?
As with any surgery, it’s critical that you’re open and honest with your surgeon. Dr. Martin and his team in Toronto communicate effectively, allowing you to voice any concerns while providing you with realistic guidelines as to what you can expect both during and after the surgery.
How long does it take to recover?
Although an inner thigh lift is a relatively simple procedure, it can take up to 8 weeks for the body to fully heal. Your improved contours and smooth appearance will be immediately visible after surgery, however, it’s important to follow Dr. Martins recovery guidelines to ensure there are no complications during the healing process.
Typically, compression garments need to be worn for up to 4 weeks. The most critical period of healing takes place during the first 10-14 days and you should only engage in light activities during this time. Swelling tends to subside in 3-5 weeks and after 8 weeks, you will be free to return to normal activities.
