Why Should I Consider a Thigh Lift?
With age or significant weight loss our skin begins to lose it’s ability to snap back into place. As a result it starts to sag. One place that this is especially noticeable is on the inside of the thighs. In addition to the unattractive appearance in the mirror, this sagging of the skin can cause women to feel extremely uncomfortable wearing bathing suits, shorts, skirts or shorter dresses. This creates a real problem in the sun and heat of the Dallas and Fort Worth area. Fortunately sagging skin on the thigh can be removed by performing a thigh lift. Dr. Obaid is a plastic surgeon who specializes in this procedure. He will be happy to answer all of your questions in the comfort and privacy of his office.
I Don’t Want Anyone to Know I Had This Done. Will the Scars be Visible?
Dr. Obaid performs a thigh lift trough an incision that is made in a patient’s groin crease. This hides the scar extremely well. The scar will never be visible when a patient wears clothing and will only be seen with a very revealing bathing suit.
What Will the Recovery Process Be Like?
Dr. Obaid will perform your procedure at a surgery center in Southlake. The night after surgery, many women are a little sore in the thighs making it difficult to get around much. For this reason, Dr. Obaid will keep you overnight so that a nurse may help you with all that you need. By the next morning, most women are able to get up and around well and are able to go home. You will be able to shower the day after your surgery. Dr. Obaid will see you back in his office one week after your surgery. At that time he will remove two small drains. The stitches he uses will all dissolve and there will be no difficult or painful bandages to change. At that time you will already see the difference and be feeling great. Dr. Obaid recommends that you take it easy for the first two weeks after your surgery. You should be able to resume full normal activities within two weeks.
