Thigh Lift Chicago

Dr. Azizi in Chicago specializes in thigh lift surgery, a cosmetic procedure aimed at reshaping the thighs by reducing excess skin and fat. This results in smoother skin and more proportionate contours of the thighs and lower body.

Who is a Candidate for a Thigh Lift?

You might consider a thigh lift with Dr. Azizi if:

  • You have excess soft tissue along the inner or outer thigh.
  • You seek an enhanced body image and confidence.
  • You maintain good health overall.
  • Your weight is relatively stable, and you have realistic expectations about the surgery’s outcomes.

Initial Consultation with Dr. Azizi

The first step towards a thigh lift is a consultation with Dr. Azizi. During this meeting, you will discuss your surgical expectations and goals. Dr. Azizi will:

  • Review your medical history, including any current health conditions, previous surgeries, medications, and lifestyle habits.
  • Conduct a physical examination to evaluate the area of concern and discuss the best approach for your thigh lift surgery. This includes taking photographs for your medical record and discussing any necessary preoperative evaluations.

Preparing for Surgery

Preparation for a thigh lift with Dr. Azizi includes:

  • Discontinuing certain medications as advised by Dr. Azizi to avoid increased bleeding during surgery.
  • Adjusting lifestyle habits, such as quitting smoking well in advance of the surgery and limiting alcohol consumption. A nutritious diet rich in vitamins and protein is recommended to support healing.
  • Arranging for assistance post-surgery, including taking time off from work, organizing care for dependents if necessary, ensuring transportation home after the procedure, and having someone to help during the first few days of recovery.

During the Procedure

Thigh lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia, ensuring you feel no discomfort during the operation. Dr. Azizi begins by making incisions in predetermined locations, which may vary depending on the specific areas being targeted and the extent of correction desired. Excess skin and fat are removed, and the remaining skin is lifted and tightened for a smoother, more toned appearance. The incisions are then closed with sutures, and in some cases, drains may be placed to collect excess fluid and reduce swelling.

Postoperative Care and Recovery

After the surgery, you’ll need to wear a compression garment to support the new contours of your thighs and minimize swelling. Dr. Azizi will provide detailed instructions on caring for your surgical site, medications to take to aid healing and reduce the risk of infection, and specific guidelines on sitting and lying positions to ensure optimal results.

Follow-up visits will be scheduled with Dr. Azizi to monitor your recovery, remove any sutures or drains, and address any concerns you may have. Full recovery and the final results of your thigh lift may take several months, during which it’s important to follow Dr. Azizi’s advice closely to ensure the best outcome.

Dr. Azizi is dedicated to providing personalized care throughout your thigh lift journey, from the initial consultation to postoperative recovery, ensuring your comfort, safety, and satisfaction with the results.
