What to expect with a thigh lift procedure
Before any procedure, Dr. Nesmith will discuss with you whether general anesthesia or intravenous sedation seems more appropriate for the case. The decision will depend on your overall health, medical history, preferences, etc.
Medial thigh incisions usually result in some scarring in the groin area. A vertical scar that runs down the thigh should be expected if large amounts of skin and fat are removed.
The extent of the incisions for an outer thigh lift depends on the patient’s individual needs. Dr. Nesmith will discuss the expected and potential scarring with you during the consultation. Often, swimsuits and undergarments will hide any potential scars.
