Problematic inner thighs can be the result of many factors including genetics, age, or weight gain and weight loss. Fat and excess skin on the inner thigh area can be extremely difficult to lose, even with regular diet and exercise. In fact, even if the weight is lost, no amount of exercise can trim, tone, or reduce the appearance of loose skin.
Thigh Lift Surgery in East Lansing
One of the most effective ways to trim and sculpt your thighs is through a surgical procedure called an inner thigh lift. Dr. Colony performs thigh lift procedures for patients in Lansing and the surrounding areas. During a thigh lift, incisions are made – typically along the groin crease in front and extend behind into the crease beneath the buttocks –allowing access to the areas you wish to target. The tissue can then be tightened to create smooth, well-contoured inner thighs that no longer have chaffing and contact. Because a thigh lift is a major surgical procedure, it is performed under general anesthesia. Recovery following a thigh lift generally takes about two to three weeks. Early ambulation is encouraged and compression garments are helpful to help keep swelling down in order to ensure a safe and steady healing process.

Sometimes, a healthy diet and regular exercise are simply not enough when it comes to achieving a slim, well-toned body. Excess skin on the body is a problem that affects many people and it can create a less than desirable body shape and silhouette. There are a number of factors that can contribute to loose, sagging skin. Genetics, the aging process, and extreme weight loss can all cause the skin to lose its elasticity and firmness. A lack of elasticity combined with gravity can cause skin to become heavy and saggy. This loose, excess skin may be particularly troubling for people who have experienced extreme weight loss either through diet and exercise or through weight loss surgery. Even after the weight is gone, bodies cannot look their best with extreme amounts of excess skin.
A Body Lift Procedure
A body lift is a surgical procedure that is used to re-contour the body by removing unwanted excess skin to reveal a firmer, well-toned shape. During the procedure, incisions are made based on the areas to be targeted. The size of the incisions will depend on the amount of excess skin in that area. Once the skin is removed, it can be reshaped and tightened. Dr. Colony performs procedures for patients in the Okemos, Brighton, and East Lansing areas.
An arm lift is a surgical procedure requiring the administering of anesthesia. Following the administration of the anesthesia, incisions are made on the inner upper arm, or underneath the armpit based on the amount of correction that is needed. Once incisions are made, excess skin can be removed and the arms can be reshaped.
Recovery After Arm Lift Surgery
Following surgery, recovery times vary on a case by case basis. Most patients can expect to be back to work and resume many of their normal activities within about a week or so. Pain and swelling of the arms is common and can be managed through the use of ice packs and by taking pain medications as directed. In East Lansing, Dr. Colony can guide his patients through the recovery process.
