Whether you’ve lost a lot of weight or your skin has lost its elasticity due to aging or childbearing, loose, saggy skin can be both uncomfortable and unattractive. Saggy leg skin can make finding slacks or jeans that fit next to impossible. If you have excess skin on your thighs, there is a cosmetic surgical procedure available to help you. A thigh lift may be right for you.
Good Candidates for a Thigh Lift
If you are young and still have supple skin and just want to reduce the appearance of fat deposits, liposuction may be a better fit. However, if it is your skin that’s the issue, a thigh lift is the solution designed for your specific situation. Good candidates for this surgery have good muscle tone, good general health and an average body weight, but are burdened with loose skin.
The Thigh Lift Procedure
This surgery is an outpatient procedure, meaning you’ll be home the same day of your procedure with no overnight stay necessary. The details of each procedure vary from patient to patient. However, during a typical thigh lift, excess skin is removed, creating a better overall thigh shape.
It is important to understand that since a thigh lift is a surgical procedure, there is a recovery involved. Make sure to follow our team’s instructions regarding healing for optimal results. This may include elevating the legs and/or wearing compression garments. Once you have fully recovered from the procedure, you will be able to enjoy your new and improved thighs.

As with most any procedure, a thigh lift is tailored for the individual. It is often used as part of body lift procedures for patients seeking full body contouring. This possibility may be discussed during a consultation.
