Surgical Procedures for Thigh and Buttock Enhancement
Loose, excess skin along the arms, thighs and buttocks often results from aging and can be made worse by weight loss. If the laxity is severe enough, surgery is used to tighten sagging skin—resulting in a more contoured lower body.
Drain tubes are sometimes placed in the incision to draw out excess fluids for three to four days. Most patients can return to work in that time, and a compression garment must be worn for three to six weeks following surgery. Immediately following, patients must limit exercise for the first three weeks. You can return to the gym for light exercises such as treadmill walking, elliptical training and stationary cycling once you are off pain medications. Normal activities can be resumed in three weeks.
