A thigh lift is designed for individuals who are self-conscious about their lower body appearance. If you have experienced a loss of skin elasticity in their thigh, hip or buttock area or the skin in this area has a flabby or dimpled appearance a thigh lift procedure can be the answer.* The thigh lift is intended to produce tighter, more attractive thigh and buttock skin with improved contours.*
The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis. Lifting the inner thighs requires only short incisions extending from the anterior part of the thigh/groin crease around to the buttock crease.* Lateral or anterior thigh lifts can be performed as separate procedures if desired.* The surgeon will show you what specific procedures are available to solve your particular problem.
The patient is placed in a compression garment, similar to an elastic support girdle, at the end of surgery to reduce swelling and assist in the natural shrinking and tightening of the skin.* Bruising and swelling usually will subside within a month, strenuous activities are usually possible in six weeks and almost all symptoms are gone in four-six months.*
*Results and patient experience may vary.
