Thigh Lift

The thighs are particularly prone to developing saggy skin, especially with age or after weight fluctuations. A thigh lift at Spectrum Plastic Surgery can permanently remove lax, unwanted skin in this area. The incision is hidden in the natural crease where the thighs meet the groin, allowing patients to wear swimsuits, briefs, and similar clothing with confidence. Sagging skin and stubborn fatty deposits cannot be addressed with diet or exercise. Only a thigh lift can immediately address this common concern with results that last for several years.

Benefits of A Thigh Lift

There are a number of benefits to a thigh lift, including:

  • Thighs that are firmer and more slender

  • Incision scars that are easily hidden in the thigh and groin crease

  • More confidence and the ability to wear a wider variety of clothing

  • Addressing rubbing and chafing between the thighs

Thigh lifts offer patients an effective way to achieve thighs that are firm, youthful, and more attractive. In most cases, liposuction complements a thigh lift and helps in contouring the thigh for a more symmetrical appearance. A thigh lift is also commonly paired with a tummy tuck, arm lift, and liposuction in other parts of the body. Patients may choose a thigh lift as a singular procedure or as part of a suite of procedures during a mommy makeover or other personalized treatment plan.

Maximize Your Thigh Lift Results

Bear in mind that a thigh lift removes excess skin and current fatty deposits, but does not stop the natural aging process. Skin will continue to age and lose laxity, and the body can gain weight in the thigh area in the future. It is important to maintain a healthy weight and avoid dramatic weight fluctuations in order to maintain results. Smoking must be stopped before any cosmetic surgery, and certain medications should also be avoided in collaboration with the prescribing doctor.

Thigh Lift Recovery and More Information

There are a variety of methods and techniques that can be used when performing a thigh lift depending on the patient and their goal. Every thigh lift begins with anesthesia for optimal comfort followed by incisions that will vary in length and placement depending on the type of thigh lift being performed. Excess skin and extra adipose tissue are removed for recontouring and to achieve thighs that appear trim, fit, and smooth. Skin is then re-draped and medical stitches are used to close the incisions.

Rest and taking time off of work is essential for proper healing and to avoid any complications. Limitation to little or moderate activity is sometimes recommended for several weeks following the procedure, but this will depend on the health of the patient, the type of thigh lift, and the patient’s usual workload. You will find out the exact treatment and post-operative care plan for you during your consultation. All patients wear an elastic, post-surgical garment on the thighs in order to help with healing and conformation to the new thigh contours, as well as to reduce bruising and swelling. You can discover more about thigh lifts and complementary procedures when you have your consultation with a Spectrum Plastic Surgery doctor who specializes in this procedure.
