We Are Now Offering Virtual Consultations. Please Request a Consultation Online.

During this unsettling time, we wanted to reach out to our patients and reassure you of our commitment to maintaining a safe, clean environment at Noble Cosmetic Surgery because it has been our top priority. Additionally, please take note of the following:
  • As a cosmetic medicine facility, we typically do not service sick patients. Our patients elect to have procedures that are not medically necessary, so your risk of running into an ill patient is lower than that of other healthcare facilities.
  • Our surgeries and other treatments are performed in our private facilities used purely for elective treatments.
We continue to monitor the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and are actively following the guidelines and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO) as well as our local, state and federal government agencies. Our usual guidelines include universal precautions, frequent handwashing, and frequent sanitizing of all patient areas. For the most up-to-date information, please check the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website about this evolving situation, how to reduce the risk of spreading illness, travel health notices, and more.

The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. Currently, as the Coronavirus is thought to spread mainly from person to person, we have now adopted several enhanced safety measures to decrease the risk of exposure to you and the community which include the following:
  • Please wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use the hand sanitizers provided when you enter our offices.
  • If you feel unwell or anyone in your household may have been exposed to COVID-19 through travel or attendance at large gatherings less than two weeks ago, please call us at your earliest convenience so we can reschedule you!
  • If you need to cough or sneeze, do so into the crease of your elbow and immediately wash your hands.
  • Know the symptoms of Coronavirus: tiredness, fever, weakness, shortness of breath, and diarrhea. This virus is lower respiratory focused, so you may not have upper respiratory symptoms like a runny nose, sore throat, and congestion.
  • Take these additional preventive actions to stop the spread of germs: wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth, and clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
We hope each of you will stay safe & healthy as we navigate this complex situation together.

Thigh Lift

When exercise and a healthy diet aren’t enough to slenderize your thighs, it might be time to consider a surgical procedure. Cosmetic thigh lifts are becoming more common for men and women who need a more direct method of significant fat loss. If you live near Plano or Desoto, Texas, call Noble Cosmetic Surgery or book an appointment online for a personalized consultation with Dr. Patrick Obasi.

Thigh Lift Q & A

Cosmetic thigh lifts are surgical procedures that do more than remove unwanted fatty tissue; your excess skin is also removed–unlike with liposuction. The significant but routine surgery involves reshaping or “lifting” sagging skin around the incision. However, Dr. Obasi sometimes recommends including liposuction for best results, especially if your thigh skin’s elasticity is low.

Cosmetic thigh lifts have many advantages when exercise and diet aren’t enough, such as:

  • Quick removal of excess fat and skin
  • Instant, significant weight loss
  • More shapely, toned thighs
  • Smoother, tighter skin

Before cosmetic thigh lifts, avoid smoking, select medications, anti-inflammatories, and any substances that may increase bleeding. Dr. Obasi may also order certain lab tests, perform other health evaluations, and recommend additional preparations accordingly.

Before plastic surgeons make any incisions for thigh lifts, they administer one or more forms of anesthesia. Dr. Obasi carefully incises your upper, inner, and/or outer thigh, depending on your needs. No matter the pattern, Dr. Obasi keeps your skin’s resulting look in mind and chooses incision locations to be as effective, yet also as discreet, as possible.

He removes excess skin and subcutaneous fat layers to reshape your thighs from the inside out. Your incisions will be closed with sutures and other medical adhesives. Cosmetic thigh lift surgery takes about three hours on average.

Thigh lift surgery is typically an outpatient service, meaning you leave the same day, but it depends on your unique body and personal level of health. You immediately notice better thigh contouring, but recovery is a process.

Side effects of thigh lift recovery may include:

  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Numbness
  • Pain
  • Scarring
  • Asymmetry
  • Seroma (fluid buildup)
  • Less common, more severe complications (report immediately)

Most visible side effects usually subside within a few weeks or months. You can often resume most regular activities within three weeks and then fully return to your everyday, active life by a month and a half after thigh lift surgery.

Full recovery takes up to a year, though scars will continue to fade over time with the help of certain topical agents. Dr. Obasi also recommends maintaining a healthy lifestyle to ensure you keep your thighs’ slimmer silhouette.

If you’re ready for better proportioned, tighter, and healthier thighs, call Noble Cosmetic Surgery or book an appointment online with Dr. Obasi.
