THIGH LIFT

Procedure Description

Thigh lift surgery removes improves the appearance of the inner thighs by removing excess skin fat tissue from the inner thighs and advancing and tightening the skin. Patients often elect to have this surgery after they have lost a significant amount weight and have excess skin in the inner thighs with a small amount of excess fat.

Surgery and Recovery
The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and patients go home the same day. Recovery time is 7-10 days for most of the discomfort to subside, and 3-6 weeks until vigorous exercise can begin. A long curved scar is placed at the upper aspect of the inner thighs, and takes 6-12 months to mature.

Please schedule a consultation and examination so we can discuss the risks 
and benefits of this procedure and determine if a thigh lift is right for you.

Please note, any patient considering cosmetic plastic surgery procedures should be in overall good health and currently a non-smoker.
