Diet and exercise go a long way towards helping you enjoy the body you desire, but sometimes excess skin or stubborn pockets of fat just refuse to budge. A thigh lift in Beverly Hills with Dr. Hovsepian can address these problematic areas and enable you to enjoy shapely, toned legs.
A thigh lift reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin and removing any unnecessary fat, for a smoother look and more proportioned contours between the thighs and lower body. If fitness and weight loss efforts have not achieved your goals for a firmer, more youthful-looking body, a surgical thigh lift may be right for you. Reach out and set up your consultation for a thigh lift in Beverly Hills with Dr. Raffi Hovsepian today and learn more about how this procedure can change your life for the better.
What Can a Thigh Lift Do for Me?
When it comes to achieving incredible results, Dr. Hovsepian relies on decades of experience, as well as a commitment to the most advanced techniques.
His thigh lift procedure is a great way to:
- Reduce excess soft tissue along the inner or medial thigh region and/or the outer thigh
- Diminish excess skin after severe weight loss
- Give your thighs a smooth, firm appearance
- Improve your body’s contours
Planning Your Procedure
Thigh sagging results from a variety of causes, including weight loss, lack of exercise, aging, and hereditary traits. Each patient requires an individualized assessment and bespoke treatment plan, so Dr. Hovsepian will meet with you to understand your personal needs.
Raffi Hovsepian, M.D., will perform a thorough examination of your thighs and discuss your enhancement goals with you before talking you through the details of your surgery, and going over your aftercare and recovery in Beverly Hills. Thigh lift consultations are where you will be able to ask all of your questions of the doctor before the surgery is performed.
Thigh Lift Surgery
You’ll need to begin fasting about eight hours before your surgery, meaning you cannot eat or drink anything at all during this period, including chewing gum or drinking water. If you have been instructed by Dr. Hovsepian to take any medications in the morning, this is permitted with a few sips of water.
Performed at Dr. Hovsepian's practice in Beverly Hills, thigh lift surgery is usually done under general anesthesia. The thigh lift is typically an outpatient procedure, but some patients prefer an overnight stay. Out-of-town patients may stay in a nearby aftercare facility or hotel, where a "private duty" nurse is available.
The surgery itself generally takes a few hours, although you should expect to spend extra time in the operating room if your procedure will focus on multiple areas. Afterward, you will return to your home, aftercare facility, or a hotel located a short distance from the surgical center.
You can expect to experience bruising and swelling after your procedure, but you’ll be mobile within a few days. Full recovery typically takes between six and eight weeks, and we’ll provide you with detailed aftercare instructions, while also setting follow-up appointments to monitor your progress.
Dr. Hovsepian’s goal is to provide every one of his patients with the best possible care while utilizing the most innovative advancements in plastic surgery to bring your aesthetic goals to life.
If you’re frustrated by the presence of excess skin or unwanted fat in the thigh area, his Beverly Hills thigh lift procedure can help you achieve the body of your dreams. Reach out to Dr. Hovsepian’s Beverly Hills surgical center and set up your consultation today.
