Thigh Lift

A thigh lift, also known as thighplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to improve the appearance of the thighs by removing excess skin and fat. This reshaping of the thighs creates a more contoured and toned look. Additionally, a thigh lift can provide relief from discomfort and irritation that can result from the friction and rubbing of the inner thighs.

Who gets a thigh lift?,

A thigh lift procedure may be beneficial if you have experienced significant weight loss, as it can address issues such as poor skin tone, loss of elasticity, cellulite, rashes, chafing, bleeding, discoloration, and sagging skin in the thigh area. By removing excess skin and fat, a thigh lift can help improve the contour and appearance of your thighs, providing a smoother and more toned result.

Thigh Lift Procedure

A thigh lift procedure is typically performed in a hospital, an accredited in-office surgical facility, or an ambulatory surgery center. On the day of your surgery, you can expect the following:

  • Before the procedure, your surgeon will mark the incision lines while you are standing, strategically positioning the sagging skin for optimal results.
  • An anesthesiologist will administer anesthesia to put you to sleep, ensuring that you do not feel any pain during the surgery.
  • Your surgeon will make an incision in your groin area. The length and location of the incision will depend on the specific type of thigh lift being performed. It may extend around the back of your thigh, down towards your knee, or around your hip and back.
  • Excess fat is removed, tissue is repositioned, and nearby muscles are tightened to enhance the contour of your thighs. Excess skin is also trimmed away.
  • Stitches (sutures) are used to secure the deep tissue, providing support for your newly shaped thighs.
  • To complete the procedure, your surgeon will use stitches, clips, or a special skin adhesive to close the incision.
