With a keen aesthetic eye, Dr. Arroyo performs thigh lifts in Houston at Arroyo Plastic Surgery with the goal of eliminating excess fat and skin in order to restore a taut and natural thigh contour. Many patients who receive this treatment benefit from an enhanced body image and increased self-confidence.
Mini thigh lift
This is a minimalistic procedure used to reduce skin sagging in the upper part of the inner thigh. Rather than tighten the entire thigh, the surgeon will focus on a small portion of the upper thigh. This procedure is better suited for patients looking to address a minimal amount of skin or fat from their upper inner thighs. It results in a slimmer, smoother appearance with minimal dents and bumps. There is very minimal recovery downtime required after a mini thigh lift, and most patients can resume full activity within two weeks.
Outer/lateral thigh lift
This procedure option addresses excess skin and fat from the outer area of the thigh. Plastic surgeons often perform this type of thigh lift to remove loose skin caused by excess weight in the buttock and waist area. An incision will be made around your waist and used to bring up and secure sagging skin at the hip bone. This leads to a smoother, tighter appearance that is free from dimples and ripples. Dr. Arroyo recommends this technique for patients looking for more extensive improvements in their thighs and around their lower body.
Vertical thigh lift
This type of thigh lift may be ideal for men or women who have excess skin stretching all-around their thigh. The surgeon will focus on reducing excess skin throughout the middle and lower sections of the thigh. Because this is a more extensive procedure, a larger incision is required, and there is a longer period of recovery downtime. A vertical thigh lift is best suited for patients who need to address substantial amounts of excess skin.
