Thigh lift at the University of Ottawa
The aging process, genetics and weight loss can cause skin redundancy to accumulate in the thighs. This results in loose skin, fine lines and uneven contours which can be addressed with a thigh lift. Ottawa patients who opt for this procedure must undergo an assessment of their health and medical history to ascertain their candidacy for surgery. A treatment plan will then be developed to attain their objectives. Incisions are usually made at the top of the thigh and the inner thigh in order to access the underlying fat and connective tissue, which are tightened and lifted. Liposuction is often performed in conjunction with a thigh lift. Excess skin is trimmed and sculpted for a smooth, firm and rejuvenated outcome. Patients under the care of plastic surgeons at the University of Ottawa will be informed about what to expect pre-, during and post procedure to ensure comfort, safety and ideal recovery.
