Thigh Surgery After Weight Loss – Is it Possible?

If you ever go through excessive weight loss, it’s expected that you’ll experience large amounts of skin building up around your body. Occasions, where this might occur, would include the body going through pregnancy or you have a dramatic change in diet. 

An area of the body where excessive weight may form is in your thighs. This may cause you to consider whether to have thigh surgery after weight loss. This can be an option for you but there are several factors to consider before you think of having the surgery.

Would I be an ideal candidate for thigh surgery after weight loss?

If you have signs of sagging skin around your thighs this would make you an ideal candidate for thigh surgery after weight loss. However, this is not the only factor that’s considered. We’d still need to examine you to make sure that you’re in good health and an ideal weight before we can go ahead with the surgery. This is to ensure that no further complications occur before, during or after the surgery.

When should I expect to recover?

Recovery periods for patients can vary as your lifestyle and personal circumstances can determine how well you recover. Generally, if you opt for a thigh lift surgery then your recovery period should be relatively short. You’ll be advised to keep your leg elevated for at least a week to promote blood flow before having the ability to go out again around a week after. Extensive exercise should still be avoided for at least the first month during your recovery.

Are there any complications that I should be aware of?

Thigh lifts would be categorised as a major surgery considering the length of the incisions that need to be made and the amount of excess skin that will be required to remove. However, incisions will only be focused around the thigh area so you shouldn’t expect to see any scarring in the calf area (calf augmentation tends to be the surgery to address this more effectively).

It’s also expected for swelling to occur which tends to be normal for all surgeries. This means in the first few days of recovery it will be quite slow, particularly near the groin area where friction can occur but dressing will help to prevent this.

If thigh surgery after weight loss is something that you think would be helpful for you, feel free to visit our thigh surgery page to understand the surgery in more detail. We’ve also had many patients go through thigh surgery and have case studies that you can browse to see the before and after results.

How can a Male Cheek Implant Benefit my Facial Appearance?

In today’s society, more and more men are becoming aware of the conforms within the public eye. This includes the idea of a particular idealistic representation of how you should look. It may go as far to say that you’d even be conscious about your cheeks. If this is something that you’re thinking about, then having male cheek implant surgery may be the option for you.

It can help to knock years off your facial appearance and better define your face as well as provide other benefits. This blog will explore what these benefits are and how a male cheek implant could be an ideal option for you.

Male cheeks can provide proportion to the face

It’s rare to find an individual that has a completely proportionate face. However, there are adjustments that can be made to close the imbalance, such as male cheek implants. They can help to define your face near the cheekbone and provide a youthful look to ageing skin.

Different sizes are available to suit your needs

Technology over the years has helped advance cosmetic procedures and provide wider flexibility to match patient needs. Aesthetic implants are now available in different shapes and sizes which can help to match the structure of your face and provide the results that you’re looking for. This can help the implants to look more natural.

It’s a quick procedure with a short recovery period

Male cheek implant surgery isn’t considered a major surgery so it’s a relatively quick procedure to perform. Generally, the procedure takes around an hour and you should expect to return home the same day. As with any surgery, there will be bruising and swelling that’ll occur and your surgeon will provide aftercare guidance to help sooth these.

Scarring isn’t visible

One of the main benefits of male cheek implant surgery is that the incisions are made on the inside of the mouth. This means scarring won’t be visible on your outside skin. If external incisions are required, then there is still the ability to perform these under the folds of the skin. This will be ideal if you’re conscious about whether your skin will be affected.
