Thigh Lift

Thigh lifts are performed in people who have excessive skin in their inner or outer thighs.  This can occur after substantial weight loss, weight gain, or from the effects of aging.   Often, the skin is not only aesthetically an issue with patients; it also rubs against the body, causing skin irritation.  Thigh lifts remove the excess skin and fat, leaving behind a thinner leg.

General anesthesia is used for patient comfort.  Incision patterns vary based on the area or areas to be treated, degree of correction and patient and surgeon preference.  One common technique used for a thigh lift places incisions in the groin, extending downward wrapping around the back of the thigh. The underlying tissue matrix will be reshaped and tightened, and skin will be reduced and redraped resulting in more proportionate and smoother body contours.  You may qualify for a minimal incision medial thigh lift, which involves an incision only in the groin area.

Incisions can be placed in strategic locations where they can be hidden by most types of clothing and swimsuits.

Medial Thigh Lift

 

Outer Thigh Lift

The smoother tighter contouring that result from a thigh lift is apparent almost immediately, although initially obscured by some swelling and bruising.  You may be required to wear a compression garment for several weeks following your procedure to minimize swelling and support the tissues as they heal.  Following a thigh lift, skin quality is dramatically improved both in appearance and feel.

If you are interested in a thigh lift, feel free to ask Dr. Mehta about your options.
