Results of Your excisional thigh lipectomy
Excisional thigh lipectomy will enhance your body contour by making your back firmer and flatter and your buttocks lifted and more youthful in contour. You may find that you feel more comfortable in your clothing and are more confident about your appearance.
The incisions from the
procedure will heal and fade over time. It is important to realize, however,
that the incision lines will be permanently visible. In some instances, they
will eventually be only faint lines. Certain individuals may have incision lines
that are more noticeable. Fortunately, the incisions for your excisional
thigh lipectomy are
usually in locations concealed by most bathing suits and undergarments.
Unless you gain or lose a significant amount of weight or become pregnant, your thighs should remain firmer and flatter for many years. However, gravity and the effects of aging will eventually take their toll. If, after a period of years, you again become dissatisfied with the appearance of your back and buttocks, you may choose to undergo a second procedure to restore a more youthful body contour.
Post Surgical Care
It can be beneficial to begin using clinical skin care products to help maintain the results of your thigh lift surgery. Dr. Speron recommends neaclear Liquid Oxygen Firming Body Lotion, to smooth and firm the skin, along with Rejuvenating Body Scrub to gently scrub away dead skin cells and other impurities. He also recommends neaclearplus Liquid Oxygen Scar Advantage to reduce the appearance of post surgical scars.
Maintaining a Relationship with Your Plastic Surgeon
You will return to your plastic surgeon's office for follow-up care at prescribed intervals, at which time your progress will be evaluated. Your surgeon will encourage you to schedule routine follow-up evaluations at the frequency recommended for your age group and the procedure performed.
Please remember that the relationship with your plastic surgeon does not end when you leave the operating room. If you have questions or concerns during your recovery, or need additional information at a later time, you should contact your surgeon.
