The Ideal Candidate:
The best candidate for this procedure will be someone with excess soft, fatty tissue, and redundant skin on the outer or inner thigh. Patients should have a relatively stable weight, be in overall good health, understand the procedure, and have reasonable expectations for their results. At the consultation appointment with Dr. Lohner, it will be determined if this is the right procedure to meet the individual’s unique needs.
How to get started:
Potential patients should begin this process by doing research. Options include the most limited procedure known as a medial lift. Other options include lateral lifts, longitudinal lifts, or the rarest form, the proximal circumferential lift. Some are performed in combination with operations such as an Abdominoplasty or total Body Lift. Once the surgical techniques, recovery time, and expected results are understood, it will be time to schedule a consultation at Lohner Plastic Surgery.
During the first visit with Dr. Lohner, he will take a complete medical history, review current medications, perform a quick physical exam, and get to know the patient’s desires for aesthetic correction. Dr. Lohner will show Before/After photos of his recent surgeries to assist patients visualize their potential results. If this is determined to be the right procedure to meet the specific needs of the patient, an individualized surgical plan will be created.
