The Thigh Lift Procedure:
The procedure will begin with general anesthesia. This will put you under in order to keep you comfortable during the surgery, which usually lasts around two hours. After this Dr. Ching will create incisions on your thighs and begin removing excess skin or fat, or a combination of the two. Once the procedure is complete sutures will be used, and you will spend some time recovering.
After the surgery dressings will be placed around the thighs, and in some cases drains may be used. In the days following the procedure you should rest and recover at home. During this time, you may experience some bruising, swelling, and pain. Dr. Ching and his staff will be available throughout the recovery process to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
The results of your thigh lift will take several weeks to become fully visible. In order for you to see the full results you will need to completely heal. This can take roughly 4-8 weeks, but can vary from patient to patient.
