Thigh Lift

Thigh lift, also known as thighplasty,  is intended to improve the appearance of the area between the knees and the hips. Loose skin, excess fat, dimpling and undesirable contour irregularities, may all be addressed with this surgical technique.

What to Expect

thigh-liftSince this procedure is often combined with other complementing techniques, it is usually performed as an outpatient, under a light general anesthetic. There can be flexibility in anesthetic choices depending on unique patient characteristics and procedures selected.

Incisions are required when significant skin excess is present. Attempts are made to “hide” incisions in natural skin creases. The quality of the final scar can vary greatly and  may depend on a number of factors.

Thigh Lift | Post-Surgery Care

All patients are evaluated no later than the day after surgery. Postoperative care and recovery is again discussed in great detail. Care of the operative is detailed in the written and verbal instructions. Phone calls are encouraged if there is need of clarification. There should be no heavy lifting, strenuous activity or “straining” for two more weeks. Return to work or other more specific activities should be addressed with the physician/nurse since there can be a high degree of variability in demand and a plan can often be developed to enable you to return to more normal activity faster.

Compression garments are worn for one month full time and two weeks, half time.

Thigh Lift | Results

Results can be long term but certainly are impacted by weight loss/gain, environmental factors and the natural aging process.
