The shape of the lower body causes many women to feel embarrassed and want to hide behind baggy pants. Excess skin and fat on the thighs can be a result of genetics, aging or weight loss. However, Dr. Korman gives women a chance to correct this with a thigh lift, which tightens the upper leg and creates a contoured shape. If you would like to boost your confidence by enhancing the shape of your leg, contact Dr. Korman’s Mountain View practice to schedule a consultation and discuss your options.

What is a Thigh Lift?

With thigh lifts, Dr. Korman commonly makes the incision in the crease where the butt and thigh meet or the groin area by the hip. This will depend on the patient’s body and the extent of surgery necessary to meet the cosmetic goal. At this point, the skin and muscle tissue are separated, allowing Dr. Korman to trim the sagging skin. Once the excess skin has been trimmed, it will be realigned to create a toned appearance for the thigh and the incision is closed. At his Mountain View office, Dr. Korman can go over in detail the thigh lift procedure.

What to Expect Following a Thigh Lift?

If there is excess drainage, Dr. Korman will recommend the placement of a tube. Mountain View thigh lift patients should wear light dressings and a compression bandage to speed the healing process and reduce any swelling. After a week, most patients are able to resume normal activity with their contoured thighs. To discuss the recovery process of a thigh lift, contact Dr. Korman’s Mountain View office to schedule a consultation.
