Thigh lift surgery is performed when a patient has excess or loose skin on the thighs and/or buttocks. As a result of natural aging, or possibly through dramatic weight loss, the skin loses much of its elasticity, which leads to excessive wrinkling and drooping of the skin.
Thigh lift – buttock lift surgery is performed in our fully accredited Oakville clinic under general anaesthesia. The incisions for a full thigh or medial thigh lift are made as high as possible around the upper thigh. The excess skin is removed and the remaining skin is draped into a tighter and more youthful contour. The incisions are made in the natural fold of the body to minimize any visible scarring. However, scarring does fade significantly over time and patients who have been plagued by excess skin are not often bothered by this.
To find out if thigh – buttock lift surgery is right for you, please contact our knowledgeable staff at our Oakville office, between Hamilton and Toronto, Ontario. If you are ready to schedule for consultation, Dr. Julie Khanna is able to provide her patients with all of the information that they will need to make the most informed decision.
