Question on lipo of thighs?
I am having a tt and brachioplasty on May 27th. I really need to have my thighs done as well but can't really afford all that right now. Has anyone had just lipo done on there thighs and been happy with the results. I am not sure if it will just ,leave me with more sagging skin. Any thoughts are appreciated.
If you have excess fat and excellent tight skin that ahs not been stretched, then lipo may be ok. As a general rule, lipo alone makes the loose skin of most weight loss patients look a lot worse. Get a trusted opinion or two on this please.
Scarring beneath the skin and within the tissues makes pulling the skin during a leg lift and some other surgeries harder. Wrinkles and irregular skin texture are easy to correct when the skin is loose from weight loss but harder when lipo has already been done. Also, a thin layer of fat actually helps make the skin look a little smoother better than if it's too deflated and all fat has been taken away by lipo.
Large, isolated fat deposits are good candidates for lipo.
Lipo is also good for defatting the legs or arms if they are still big prior to a lift in a patinet at or near goal weight. , BUT I do the lipo in skin that is generally going to be removed so the sacrring is not such an issue.
My caution is to avoid practitioners who may offer you lipo when a lift is what is actually needed, or to perform lipo as some kind of substitute for further weight loss.
Hope this helps.
I like any group of people who say "I'm going to DO something about it." Especially in this day and age where I see too much hopelessness. I love brave souls and I love our soldiers who "get it done" especially when the old men politicians that send them off to battle have questionable motives. Makes them all the braver. I salute you all.
