What is a thigh lift?
Weight loss is a reason to celebrate, but once you reach your goal weight, you may be left with excess skin in different areas of your body. The thighs are a particular area of concern for many people. Pasadena, CA plastic surgeon Dr. Husam Elias offers thigh lift surgery (also known as thighplasty) at The Pacific Coast Center for Oral, Facial & Cosmetic Surgery, which trims extra skin on the inner and outer thighs to create a tighter, more contoured look. Thighplasty surgery has risen in popularity because it can give natural results for patients who don't want sagging skin on the thighs.
What is the thigh lift procedure?
For a thigh lift, general anesthesia is usually administered. An incision is made close to the upper area of the leg in the natural fold where the thigh and torso meet. The incision often extends down to the midsection of the thigh area. This allows enough space to perform liposuction to eliminate isolated pockets of fat, as well as to excise the loose skin at the upper thigh. The skin will be stretched upward so it is taut and safely secured with sutures. In specific patients, an additional incision may be necessary underneath the butt or in the outer thigh area, depending on the quantity of tissue being addressed. Thigh lift surgery takes around 2 – 3 hours to perform. There may be bruising, swelling, and discomfort during the first days of recovery. The full healing time typically takes around 6 – 8 weeks.
Pacific Coast Center Reviews
Excellent team,facilities, and service!
My experience with this office was absolutely stellar. Firstly, the staff welcomes you warmly when you arrive. Diana (doctor’s assistant) met me in the exam room. Diana has a way of instantly making you feel comfortable and any nervousness you may be feeling is dissipated.... Because you can’t stop laughing. Then enters Dr. Elias.... He is extremely approachable, honest, and knowledgeable. It doesn’t hurt that he has multiple degrees. I am ecstatic that I found this business:
Dr. Elias pulled my wisdom teeth out like they called his mamma fat or something! Surgery was quick and basically painless. Didn’t need any of the pain meds and was back at work two days later looking like a snack. Diane was the nurse that took care of me for most of the process and she was so wonderful, kind, funny and sweet. If my wisdom teeth every grow back, I will definitely be coming back to Dr. Elias immediately. Thank you!
Dr. Stephens is the best!
went here for wisdom teeth removal and Dr Stephens was great. we had a detailed consultation and decided which route was best, then Greg the anesthesiologist called me the night before to address any concerns I was having. The most positive surgery experience I could have had
