You may be a candidate for thigh lift plastic surgery if you have experienced a loss of skin elasticity of the thigh, hip, or buttock areas. You may also desire this procedure to be performed by the Thigh Lift Plastic Surgeon if your skin in the thigh area is saggy, has an orange peel, flabby and/or dimpled appearance. The thigh lift surgery procedure may also be indicated if your thigh appearance improves dramatically when you lift the lax skin. If you are self conscious about your lower body appearance you may also want to look into the thigh lift surgery procedure. The thigh lift procedure is intended to produce tighter, more attractive thigh and buttock skin with improved contours. It is also intended to decrease irregularities in skin surface.

The Thigh Lift Surgery procedure is performed under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis unless otherwise advised by the Plastic Surgeon. Wide variations in the design of the incisions to meet clothing or personal desires are possible and will be discussed with your during your complimentary consultation with the Thigh Lift Plastic Surgeon. 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 buttocks can be lifted with upper or lower scars. The Thigh Lift Plastic Surgeon will discuss what specific procedures are available to solve your particular problem.
The patient is placed in a compression garment (similar to a long line elastic support girdle) at the end of the Thigh Lift surgery to reduce swelling and assist in the natural shrinking and tightening of the skin. With smaller thigh lifts, initial discomfort is usually easily controlled with prescription pain medication. With larger thigh lifts, one or two nights care in a skilled nursing facility or hospital are usually required. This allows for pain injections, intravenous catheters, etc. Bruising and swelling usually subside within a month.
