“These are procedures that the patient has to be very carefully selected for – but the results can be dramatic.”

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.

Some people confuse Thigh Lifts with liposuction. The goal of a Thigh Lift is not to simply remove excess fat, it is to also reshape and contour the area.  Liposuction can be combined with a Thigh Lift for a more comprehensive approach to body contouring.

The Procedure

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.

We have found that CytoDerma™ is an essential part of post-treatment recovery to help scars fade as much as possible. You can read more about silicone scar gel here.

What Is The Thigh Lift Recovery Process Like?

After a thigh lift the recovery process can be smooth and easy if you follow Dr. Kesarwani’s instructions. Dressings and bandages will most likely be applied to your incisions and you may be given a compression garment or elastic bandage to wear to help reduce swelling. These garments will offer support to your new contours as your body heals.

In some cases, small, slender tubes will be placed under the skin to drain the excess fluid or blood that can collect post-surgery. These tubes are only temporary and will be removed as soon as the fluid and or blood cease to gather. This is not dangerous and will cause no harm to your body.

Dr. Kesarwani will also likely prescribe painkillers to ease your discomfort. As with any medication, do not exceed the dosage. If you find that even with the use of painkillers you are still experiencing high levels of pain, consult us. You will also be given very specific instructions on how to care for the surgical site on your thighs. These instructions will relate to cleaning and how to avoid possible infection. Follow these guidelines carefully and you will not interfere with the healing process.

It’s important that you avoid products that contain nicotine and alcohol. Dr. Kesarwani will ask that you stop smoking prior to your procedure and remain smoke free for the weeks to follow. Nicotine and alcohol use can greatly hinder your body’s natural recovery process so it’s best to leave those stimulants alone following thigh lift surgery.

Do not lift heavy objects or exercise for the first three weeks after your thigh lift. You can, however, return to work as you see fit. Depending on their occupation, some people take five to seven days off work while others need two to three weeks before returning to their jobs.

Scarring will be visible at first but it will lessen as the months go by. Because your place of incision is on the inner thigh, it is well concealed and difficult to see. So go ahead and wear shorts. You’ve earned it and your legs will look great!
