Enhancing your appearance with a thigh lift

If fitness and weight loss efforts have not achieved your goals for a body that is firmer, more youthful-looking and more proportionate to your overall body image, a surgical thigh lift may be right for you.

This surgery reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin, and in some cases fat, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body.

Is it right for me?
Candidates for thigh lift are:

  • People whose weight is relatively stable
  • Individuals with excess soft tissue along the inner or medial thigh region and/or the outer thigh
  • Healthy individuals who do not have medical conditions that can impair healing or increase risk of surgery
  • Non-smokers
  • Individuals with a positive outlook and realistic goals for what thigh lift surgery can accomplish
  • Individuals committed to leading a healthy lifestyle including proper nutrition and fitness

What it won’t do:
Thigh lifts are not intended strictly for the removal of excess fat. Liposuction alone can remove excess fat deposits where skin has good elasticity and is able to naturally conform to new body contours. In cases where skin elasticity is poor, a combination of liposuction and thigh lift techniques may be recommended.

Description

A thigh lift is done to remove excess skin from the thigh and buttock area. This sagging skin is usually caused by weight loss. After patients have lost a lot of weight, having this surgery performed is like the “icing on the cake”.

The Surgical Procedure

The inner thigh lifts are done with incisions over the inner thigh, hidden in the groin crease. Outer thigh and buttock lifts are done with incisions extending from the groin around the back. These are well hidden by bathing suits. All of the scars fade with time.

What To Expect After Surgery

Patients may spend their first night in an overnight care facility. Bruising and swelling are to be expected as well as a “tight” feeling in the thighs.

Resumption of Physical Activities

No work or driving for 2 weeks. No exercise for 4 weeks
