What Is A Thigh Lift
As we age, the combination of gravity, aging, weight fluctuations, and loss of elasticity in the skin causes 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. Tauber and Dr. Yan 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, more aesthetic look.
A thigh lift reduces excess skin and fat from the upper and inner thighs:
- Tightening and smoothing the skin caused by aging, gravity and loss of elasticity
- Improving tone and contours of the legs
- Regain youthful, firm thighs
- Improved self-confidence and access to additional wardrobe
options not previously available to you
A thigh lift is often combined with an arm lift or tummy tuck after pregnancy or massive weight loss. Other options are breast and inner thighs, and an outer thigh lift and buttock lift combined with a medial thigh lift.
Your Options: Medial & Outer Thigh Lifts
A medial thigh lift involves incisions along the inner thigh which extend into the upper groin on each leg. This gives Dr. Tauber or Dr. Yan 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. Tauber and Dr. Yan work to minimize scarring and try to only create incisions that can be hidden by clothing and swimsuits.
Thigh Lift Cost & Recovery Time
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. We encourage early movement to decrease the risk of blood clots. 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.
