Thigh Lift

What is thigh lift cosmetic surgery?

The thigh lift surgery removes excess skin and fat from the upper thigh.

Who is a good candidate for thigh lift cosmetic surgery?

This cosmetic plastic surgery procedure is performed for patients who have sagging or rubbing in the upper thigh area. This is typical for patients who have lost significant amounts of weight. If you feel that your upper legs do not feel as tight as you would like, you may be a good candidate for thigh lift plastic surgery.

How is the thigh lift surgery performed? What are the risks?

The thigh lift plastic surgery procedure is performed at a fully licensed and accredited outpatient surgery center. The procedure takes approximately two hours to perform. A typical thigh lift includes liposuction of the upper thigh and inner thigh area, followed by direct skin excision of the upper and inner thigh area. Most patients take two weeks off of work to recover. They take more time off if the work requirements are strenuous.
