A personal consultation is the first step for every patient considering a thigh lift. Dr. Delgado will explain the benefits of a thigh lift and determine whether the patient is a good candidate for this procedure. During the appointment, the patient and Dr. Delgado will discuss the patient’s concerns about his/her appearance. In addition, he will explain the variables that affect this procedure, such as age, the condition of the skin and the degree of fat accumulation. Dr. Delgado will describe the realistic outcome that can be expected as well as show the patient exactly where the incisions will be located.
The patient is provided with a booklet that supplies detailed pre- and post-operative instructions, including the use of medications prior to surgery. For example, it is required that aspirin and aspirin-containing products be discontinued, including anti-inflammatory products, two weeks before and two weeks after surgery, as these products have a negative effect on clotting ability. The pre-operative instructions include a complete list of medications that could pose hazards and therefore, should be avoided. However, Tylenol (acetaminophen) can be safely taken during this time. The booklet also provides a list of vitamins and homeopathic preparations that promote healing and limit bruising which the patient can opt to use before and after the surgery.
