What is it?
Thigh lift surgery is a procedure designed to surgically remove excess sagging skin and fat from the thighs. Often, advancing age, weight loss, or genetic predisposition leads to the sagging appearance of skin of the thighs. Patients can have excess skin in the vertical direction, or the horizontal direction, or both. Dr. Farahmand offers different types of thigh lifts.
The recovery after thigh lifting depends on the type of thigh lift performed. Patients are instructed to take at least one week off from work. Some patients are advised to take longer periods off from work depending on the type of work they perform. They are instructed to wear a compression garment for three weeks after the procedure. If drains are used, they will be removed once the amount of drainage decreases substantially. Pain medications control post-operative pain.
“Merry Christmas, Dr. Farahmand. We both hope you have a great holiday. We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for saving me. Without your wonderful care we feel that I would not have survived. You have been and continue to be a very caring doctor. We both feel so comfortable around you. You definitely are a wonderful, caring doctor. We think the world of you. You showed so much concern, always checking on me even when you went out of town. Thank you, Thank you. ”
