Thigh Lift and Thigh Tuck
Thigh Tuck is ideal for the woman who has lose skin in the upper inside thighs only while the rest of her leg is remains somewhat tight. The Thigh Tuck is great for the women who can’t stand having their inside thighs rub together. Dr. Dean Kane performs this procedure often with the combination of Liposuction to the inner and outer thighs and then removes the extra skin by hiding the scar in the panty line.
The recovery however is not that easy since the scar is placed within the panty line along the groin area this makes it difficult to walk and going to the bathroom gets tricky. Dr. Dean Kane recommends an antibacterial solution that is used 3-4 times a day to keep the scar from getting infected. But motion is definitely limited to minimal walking and of course no exercise until the incisions are well healed which can take up to 6-8 weeks or longer.
Dr. Dean Kane recommends the thigh lift for the massive weight loss patient whose legs are severely drooping with excess skin laxity. This very extensive surgery requires Dr. Dean Kane to make an incision along the panty line and down the inside thigh to the knee. The Thigh Lift is truly the only way to remove the extra skin caused by massive weight loss. The Thigh Lift performed by Dr. Kane provides a beautiful solution to attain shapely and tight upper legs.
As one can image, the recovery is quite difficult and requires almost no walking for the first week past surgery except to go to the bathroom. The movement of walking can cause the scars to weaken and risk an opening of the incision. Recovery can be as long as 2-3 months with no exercising and minimal movement.
