Who Is the Ideal Candidate for a Thigh Lift?

Closeup,Shot,Of,A,Female,Thigh thigh lift is a type of cosmetic surgery for people who have excess fat and skin on their thighs. While the surgery is extremely beneficial for some patients, not everyone can undergo this surgery. There are crucial requirements to getting this surgery. At Cosmetic and Reconstructive Specialists of Florida, we will evaluate your condition and determine if a thigh lift is your best choice.

What Makes You an Ideal Thigh Lift Candidate?

You Are in Good Health

If you are interested in getting a thigh lift, it is vital that you are in good overall health. You should have a healthy, stable weight and no health conditions or illnesses that would complicate the recovery process. The ideal patient has the ability to handle the surgery and heal quickly.

You Have Excess Tissue or Skin

People that would most benefit from thigh lifts have loose or sagging skin. You may have looser skin for many reasons, like age or significant weight loss. This procedure is advantageous for those who have a healthy diet and exercise but have difficulty toning their thighs or losing localized areas of fat.

You Will Follow the Recovery Process

After surgery, there is a recovery period, where you will need to rest and let the surgical site heal. You will be given careful instructions from our surgeon, like wearing compression clothes or avoiding specific activities. It is essential to follow these orders so that you can have a successful recovery.

You Are a Non-Smoker

Your recovery is an essential part of the process. One of the factors that can disrupt that healing is smoking. Nicotine reduces blood flow by narrowing your small blood vessels. This means that when you undergo surgery, your body will not be able to supply the necessary nutrients to your thighs, and your healing will be decreased. Because of this, our healthcare professionals recommend that you stop smoking before undertaking this procedure.
