Frequently Asked Questions About Thigh Lift Surgery

A: Good candidates for thigh lift surgery have loose, sagging skin on their thighs between their hip bone and knees due to aging, genetics, or weight loss. They may also have excess thigh fat. Candidates may be either men or women in good general health. All prospective patients should have realistic expectations about the results that thigh lift surgery can achieve.

A: Thigh lift surgery may be performed with the patient under general or local anesthesia. While general anesthesia is more commonly used, Dr. Jazayeri may recommend local anesthesia depending on your case.

A: You will not need to stay overnight after your thigh lift. Thigh lift surgery is an outpatient procedure.

A: During recovery, patients may experience swelling, bruising, redness, and slight discomfort. Any discomfort will last only a few days and can be managed with oral medications. Compression garments may be provided to help with healing and circulation. During the first 10 to 14 days, you will have limited mobility. Still, during recovery it is important to walk and engage in light activities to maintain circulation. Patients may be able to return to work in approximately two weeks, though some may need more time. Swelling will improve over 3-4 weeks, at which point you may gradually reintroduce normal activities with Dr. Jazayeri’s approval.

A: Your results will become more noticeable as the swelling diminishes. It may take three to six months before you see your final results.

A: Patients who undergo thigh lift surgery will have some scarring. Scars may be more visible with an outer thigh lift than with an inner thigh lift. All scarring will likely fade over time, especially if you limit sun exposure and use scar-minimizing ointments and creams.

A: Your results can be long lasting if you maintain a stable body weight. Any weight fluctuations after your thigh lift surgery may alter their improved appearance.

Procedures Under Local Anesthesia
with Dr. Michael A. Jazayeri

Dr. Michael A. Jazayeri, a distinguished plastic surgeon in Santa Ana, California, strongly advocates for patient comfort and safety during all procedures. His comprehensive approach to patient care includes using local anesthesia for various surgical procedures.

Local anesthesia is a type of anesthetic used to numb a specific area of the body where a surgical procedure will be performed. It allows the patient to remain awake and comfortable while avoiding the potential risks and side effects associated with general anesthesia. In Dr. Jazayeri's hands, an array of procedures can be carried out under local anesthesia, often leading to quicker recovery times and lower complication rates. These procedures include many facelifts, liposuctions, neck lifts, Brazilian butt lifts (BBLs), mini tummy tuck and, in certain cases, even breast and arm lift.

By taking advantage of local anesthesia's potential, Dr. Michael A. Jazayeri strives to make cosmetic and reconstructive surgery more accessible, comfortable, and patient-centered. His commitment to this safe anesthesia approach in Santa Ana, California, signals a new era in plastic surgery where patient comfort and safety are at the forefront.
