Thigh lift consultation and planning
Your surgeon will discuss your expectations regarding the surgery and listen to your concerns. He or she will obtain your medical history and perform a physical examination to determine if you are a candidate for surgery. Your surgeon will provide you with information about the procedure and will offer you an opportunity to ask questions.
Depending on how much skin and fat will need to be removed from your thighs, your thighplasty may be combined with liposuction. Thighplasty may also be safely combined with a number of other body enhancement procedures, so be sure to mention other areas of concern to be addressed during your consultation.
Once you and your surgeon have determined how you would like to proceed, you will be scheduled for surgery. Our staff will provide thorough pre-operative instructions. These instructions will explain that you must refrain from taking aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications prior to the surgery and avoid smoking. At Houston Dermatology and Plastic Surgery we are committed to patient safety and delivering the best possible result, and therefore we emphasize the importance of following these pre-operative instructions.
