Extended Abdominoplasty – Added Thigh Lift – Bethesda
An extended abdominoplasty is just one of the many surgical options available for abdominoplasties. Abdominoplasty, more commonly known as the tummy tuck, is a cosmetic procedure that aims to lift and enhance sagging around the stomach. However, there are many patients who also desire to include additional lifting around their midsection and would benefit from an included thigh lift.
An extended abdominoplasty includes all the incisions of the generally performed complete abdominoplasty but also adds a lateral thigh lift. The added incisions run along the posterior axillary line (where your open hands rest when on your hips). The additional lift allows a greater improvement in the enhancement of the entire waist area.
Consult with the doctors at the Plastic Surgery Institute of Washington if you would like to learn whether an extended abdominoplasty is right for you.
