Thigh lift at the University of Ottawa
The resiliency of the skin on the thighs can be compromised by aging and weight loss, which can create skin redundancy to accumulate in the thighs. Ottawa patients who wish to address cosmetic concerns such as uneven contours and sagging skin can improve the look of their upper legs with a thigh lift surgical procedure. An overview of your health and medical history during your consultation will ascertain your treatment candidacy. Your surgeon will then establish a surgical plan to achieve your aesthetic objectives. Incisions will be made at the top of the thigh and the inner thigh in order to tighten and lift the skin and connective tissue. In some cases liposuction may be performed to remove excess fat. The excess skin is then trimmed and redraped for a firm and rejuvenated outcome. Your surgeon will explain what to expect pre-, during and post procedure to ensure your safety, comfort and optimal recovery.
