Thigh Lift Richmond

Many people have worked tirelessly for more attractive legs or a thigh gap, but due to different circumstances, they are unable to achieve their aesthetic goals. If you’re unhappy with pesky bulges of fat or loose skin in your legs, you might be a great candidate for a Richmond thigh lift. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Hubert specializes in aesthetic surgery and is the perfect surgeon to meet with and discuss your needs.

What Is A Thigh Lift

As with other regions of the body, loose and sagging soft tissues can affect the appearance of the lower body. These areas may be bothersome in spite of appropriate diet and exercise, which often cannot get rid of the extra loose skin or tighten it enough. A thigh lift involves the removal of this excess skin and fatty tissue either from the inside of the thigh (medial thigh lift) or the outside of the thigh (lateral thigh lift). Depending on the dimensions of your body, Dr. Hubert tailors the placement of the incisions to help you achieve your goals. Occasionally, liposuction is required in conjunction with a thigh lift to achieve your best results.

Inner (medial) thigh lifts tend to be more common than outer (lateral) thigh lifts, since this area tends to be more stubborn to diet and exercise, and the scars can be hidden a little more easily.

What To Expect After A Thigh Lift

Thigh lift surgery is often done as an outpatient procedure. You will need someone to drive you home afterward and can plan on being very tired for the first few days. We suggest rest and relaxation for 7-10 days, making it a fantastic time to catch up on a Netflix series that you’ve been putting off. Swelling and bruising are perfectly normal and will subside after a few weeks.

Who Is the Best Candidate For A Thigh Lift?

  • Patients who are bothered by the excess soft tissue along the inner or outer thighs
  • Individuals who live a healthy lifestyle
  • Women and men who do not have conditions that impair the body’s ability to heal normally

How Much Does A Thigh Lift Cost In Richmond?

Dr. Hubert tailors his approach to each patient individually. Because of this, the cost of a Richmond thigh lift can vary. Financing options are available, which can make the payment process more manageable.
