Thigh Implants in Houston, TX
Thin, bony thighs can detract from an otherwise youthful and well-defined body image, making you look older than you are. Fortunately, this condition can be easily corrected with a simple thigh augmentation procedure, enhanced by thigh implants.
While the procedure may be performed either using implants or by means of a fat transfer or fat grafting procedure, a skilled plastic surgeon such as Dr. Olga Bachilo at Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa can help you select which is most suitable for you, depending on your condition and body type, as well as your aesthetic goals.
Anyone whose thighs are thin, bony, undefined, sagging, or out of proportion with the rest of the body may benefit from a thigh augmentation procedure with thigh implants. Reconstructive patients who suffer from lack of muscle mass in the thighs due to health conditions, injuries, or prior surgeries also benefit greatly from thigh implants and thigh augmentation surgery.
The procedure is performed under general anesthesia. Depending on the area of the thigh to be enhanced, the small 3-centimeter incisions may be camouflaged either in the groin area or in the pit behind the knee. Through these incisions, the surgeon creates a pocket over the muscle tissue and inserts the implants into the pocket.
How Long Will I Need to Recover After Thigh Implant Surgery?
The normal recovery period is about one week, at which point most patients are able to return to work. You may need to refrain from more strenuous physical activity such as running and climbing stairs for a period of about six to eight weeks, and it may take as long as three to four months for all of the swelling from the procedure to thoroughly subside.

What are thigh implants made of?
Thigh implants are made of solid silicone gel, which means they have no liquid in them, so they will not leak, and they are designed to hold their shape for a lifetime. Silicone is a safe, biocompatible material that has been used in implant surgeries for decades with very little risk of adverse reaction.
Are there scars after thigh implants?
The tiny scars from thigh augmentation procedures with implants are typically located in the groin area or in the hollow at the back of the knee, which means that they are barely noticeable.
Can thigh implants produce a thigh gap?
In some cases, a thigh augmentation procedure may produce a thigh gap, depending on the strategic placement of the implants; however, in order to specifically create a thigh gap, the implant procedure should be combined with a thigh lift procedure.
Will thigh implants remove crepe paper skin from above the knees?
In most cases, adding thigh implants to increase muscle bulk in the thigh will cause a subtle lift and tightening of the skin around the thigh and knee, but in some cases, it may be advisable to combine the thigh implant procedure with a thigh lift in order to specifically address loose and sagging skin.
Will thigh implants make my thighs look more muscular?
Yes. Thigh implants produce increased bulk and definition in the thigh muscles, depending on the size and shape of implant that you choose. Your thighs will appear more curved, solid, muscular, and defined after the procedure.
Can I choose from different shapes and sizes of thigh implants?
Yes. Thigh implant procedures are customized for each patient, and Dr. Bachilo will help you select the right implants to achieve your aesthetic goals.
