LONG ISLAND WOMAN HAS THIGH LIFT AFTER GASTRIC BYPASS SURGERY WITH DR. ROMANELLI
This ambitious, professional woman in her mid twenties came to see Dr. Romanelli about a thigh lift. A gastric bypass patient, she lost over 150 lbs! Now that the dieting journey was behind her, it was time to address the loose skin on her legs, often a result of massive weight loss. Upon examination, Dr. Romanelli found her to be an excellent candidate for a medial thigh lift. Making a vertical incision along each inner thigh, he would be able to remove the excess skin and then tighten everything up. In some cases, the incision can be made in the thigh crease. In this patient’s case, the better option was vertical incisions to really better tighten and smooth out the look of the upper thighs. Surgery took about two hours and by early afternoon, the patient was resting in our recovery suite, a private nurse by her side. She stayed overnight and Dr. Romanelli came to check on her and release her the next morning. Within two weeks she was back to work, feeling fabulous! The patient is thrilled with her results. As always, we love to be part of a triumphant transformation!
