If fitness and weight loss efforts have not achieved your goals for thighs that are firmer, more youthful looking and more proportionate to your overall body image, then a Changes Scarless Thigh Lift may be right for you. A typical thigh lift commonly includes an excision made in the groin that extends downward wrapping around the thigh and the skin is re-draped. The Scarless Thigh Lift requires no scalpels and no resulting scars.
The adage that good things come to those who wait is never more appropriate than when talking about scarless surgery. After years of waiting for an effective method of tightening and eliminating sagging skin without scalpels and scars, Dr. Gilbert Lee has endorsed the InMode BodyTite RFAL system for performing a thigh lift without the usual incisions and a lengthy recovery.
Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa remains a leading provider of cosmetic and plastic surgery in the San Diego area. Since 1994, Dr. Gilbert Lee has consistently incorporated the most cutting-edge and technologically advanced surgical techniques and now includes the option for patients to choose some of the most sought after procedures performed without a single incision. The Changes Scarless Thigh Lift is just one of these options and is available at Changes Center for Incisionless Surgery.
Scarless surgery involves the use of numerous best-in-class techniques to contour, lift, reshape and tighten the skin of the face and neck, arms, breasts, and thighs without traditional surgical scars. Using InMode BodyTite RFAL, the Changes surgeons are able to refine the contours of the face and body without requiring the patient to go under the knife.
Scarless surgery is performed with the use of the Radio Frequency Assisted Lipolysis (RFAL). The RFAL system uses a tiny cannula inserted through a port the size of an 18 gauge needle. This internal cannula creates an electric current flowing beneath the skin’s surface with an external electrode. This highly controlled thermal field coagulates subcutaneous fat and heats fibrous septa (fat cells) and papillary dermis, which essentially shrink-wraps tissues for exceptional skin tightening. When applied to the thighs the effect is lifting, tightening and marked retraction in skin laxity and draping above the knees.
If you’ve been wanting the aesthetic effects of a thigh lift but do not want the long incision and scars associated with a surgical thigh lift, the scarless thigh lift may be a viable alternative. Although nothing can replace surgical excision and lifting of excess skin, the scarless thigh lift does offer improvement in sagging thigh skin and true, there are no scars to hide.
Over the years, the firm taught skin we had when we were younger gets tested by time. The proteins in our skin break down and cells retain fat and toxins; all of this causes sagging, and the appearance of dimpling and wrinkling.
For some people, traditional surgery is not ideal perhaps due to a limited amount of time they can afford for recovery or simply because of the scarring. For these reasons, the scarless thigh lift may be a preferred choice.
The InMode RFAL applications are:
BodyTite – Allows an individual to improve the appearance of sagging upper arms, excess skin along the bra line, abdominal skin laxity and draping skin on the thighs.
FaceTite – Enables an individual to minimize face and neck skin laxity and is scarless with reduced recovery from the traditional face and neck surgery.
Fractora – Often used in conjunction with BodyTite and FaceTite to resurface and tighten the skin. It is extremely effective as a single treatment for resurfacing and stimulating collagen for smaller pores, improved skin texture, and tone.
The Changes Center for Scarless Surgery is the first of its kind in San Diego to offer these incisionless procedures:
