As we age, the combination of gravity, aging, weight fluctuations and loss of elasticity in the skin cause us to lose tone in the thighs. A thigh lift is one of several procedures that focus on the upper and inner thighs. Through liposuction and the excision of loose skin, Dr. DeLuca can help improve the contours of your lower body. Thigh lifts can be combined with other procedures such as an arm lift, to help you achieve a toner aesthetic look.
Reducing excess skin and fat from the upper and inner thighs with a thigh lift may help to achieve these goals:*
Body lift surgeries are invasive procedures that require a surgeon to take great care of a patient’s health and safety. With over 28 years of experience in aesthetic surgery, Dr. Deluca has performed hundreds of successful operations and has an excellent track record minimizing surgical complications. Patients choose Dr. DeLuca because:
A medial thigh lift involves incisions along the inner thigh which extend from groin to hip. This gives Dr. DeLuca sufficient access to reduce excess fatty deposits, reconstruct weak muscles, and reduce loose skin. Depending on your surgical plan, these incisions may be minimal or extensive. Longer incisions can create sufficient access for an outer thigh lift. Dr. DeLuca works to minimize scarring and tries to only create incisions that can be hidden by clothing and swimsuits.
The duration of surgery depends on your surgical plan. Operations can continue for as long as 4 hours under general anesthesia. After the surgery, you may be required to wear a compression garment for several weeks. This will minimize swelling and promote healing. Because this is an invasive surgery, a week of bed rest is recommended. You can return to normal activity after 2-3 weeks.
Cost is always a consideration in elective surgery. Prices for thigh lifts can vary widely. We’ll discuss your payment options and talk to you about our flexible financing plans.
After your surgery, our commitment to your care continues. Dr. DeLuca is available by phone and email 24/7 to address your questions and concerns. If you would like to speak with him directly in his office, we can arrange an appointment. You will not pay for this extended service. We provide it to ensure that you are healthy and fully satisfied with the results of your surgery.
William F. DeLuca, MDBerkshire County
After losing 140 pounds due to weight loss, I decided to get surgery since I would be so unhappy with the loose skin that I would regain weight which left me even unhappier. Original surgery in 2007 – tummy tuck, breast lift and eyelid surgery – changed my life by giving me more confidence in my body image. I’ve signed up to do my thighs and butt in January 2012. I was in Dr. DeLuca’s waiting room recently and after a new prospective patient asked me if I was happy with the surgeon, I practically stripped down to show her everything I was so happy with!
Dr. DeLuca is so nice. His office persona is very personable, at ease and non-judgmental. You can really talk to him and he listens. He has a great sense of what your result should be. The change in demeanor on surgery day is reassuring as his focus is all there and he’s on – all serious business giving you the sense that you’re in completely competent hands.*
