A thigh lift removes excess skin and fat usually caused by weight loss, from the thigh and buttock area.
This cosmetic procedure can also address: excess fat deposits in the inner thighs, weak muscles and stretch marks. It is often combined with a liposuction of the legs.

The thigh lift surgery tends to be a more extensive one. For this reason, it is typically performed under general anesthesia. For patients with extensive correction, an overnight stay may be needed. However, most patients are able to go home the same day.
Excisions may be made in the outer or inner thigh, vertically or horizontally. Incision placement will be discussed prior to your surgery. Fat and excess skin are removed and the remaining tissue is redraped to achieve a leaner thigh contour. The incisions are then closed and dressed.
After surgery, compression garments may be needed to help the skin retract better and reduce the risk of blood clots. Physical activity should be minimized for the recommended period of time.
