Arnold Breitbart, M.D., offers thigh lift to patients with excess skin of their thighs, typically as a result of weight loss or the natural effects of aging.
With two fully equipped facilities in New York City and Long Island, Dr. Breitbart provides thigh lift surgery to remove excess skin from both the thighs and buttocks. To reshape the contours of the inner thigh, Dr. Breitbart will typically make an incision in the groin crease, and achieve an inner thigh lift by removing skin excess and tightening the inner thigh. Outer thigh tightening can be achieved as part of a lower body lift. In both types of procedures, incisions are strategically placed so that any scarring after surgery will be as inconspicuous as possible, even when wearing a bathing suit.
Patients should plan to spend approximately two weeks recovering from thigh lift surgery before returning to work and should not vigorously exercise for a month following the procedure.
If you are considering surgery to shape, define, and tone your thighs, contact Dr. Arnold Breitbart today to schedule a consultation for thigh lift surgery.
