A number of factors may lead to excess tissue and skin in the inner or outer thighs. For men and women interested in toning and tightening this area, thigh lift surgery can create a smoother, younger and more attractive appearance to the upper legs. This procedure may be performed by itself or in combination with other body contouring procedures.

When it comes to body contouring, no two patients have the exact same needs. That’s why Dr. Daniel makes it a priority to customize each procedure for the individual patient. Before your thigh lift surgery, you will have a consultation with Dr. Daniel, during which you can discuss your reasons for wanting a thigh lift, the results you hope to see, and ask him any questions you may have.
Patients who are good candidates for a thigh lift surgery may have lost weight as a result of pregnancy, disease, surgical intervention or lifestyle changes. In these situations, the body may not be able to keep up with the changes in size, and will be unable to absorb the excess tissue that remains. Surgically removing this excess can provide a better overall appearance, improve the contours of the body, and make other areas of the body look fuller and more attractive.
Dr. Daniel will also explain the details of the surgery, and recommend any additional procedures that might meet your needs. For instance, a thigh lift can sometimes be performed in conjunction with buttock enhancement to help further streamline your lower body. The procedure is also commonly combined with a tummy tuck or an arm lift, particularly in post-weight loss patients. Many women also request thigh lift surgery as part of a mommy makeover.
A thigh lift surgery involves the surgical removal of excess fat, tissue and skin from the areas of the inner or outer thighs. This procedure may help accentuate weight loss, augment the appearance of the other bodily curves, and improve the fit of clothing. The incisions for this procedure are carefully placed by Dr. Daniel along the natural lines of the body to ensure that they are minimally visible.
The thigh lift procedure typically takes about 2 to 3 hours, and is performed under general anesthetic. Incisions are made in hidden areas of the legs, through which Dr. Daniel can remove excess tissue, fat and skin. Liposuction may also be used to further sculpt the area. The tissues are held in place using internal sutures, and the incisions are then closed with fine sutures to ensure that the incision lines are minimally visible.
Each recovery is different and will be discussed with you in detail by Dr. Daniel before and after the procedure. Typically, compression garments are worn for the first few weeks of healing. Swelling should go down in 3 to 6 weeks. Normal activities may be resumed in one week, and strenuous activities resumed in 3 to 4 weeks.
After your thigh lift, your thighs should look smoother and sleeker, creating a more streamlined lower body shape. Your thigh muscles should appear more toned and you should have less baggy skin and excess fatty tissue surrounding the thighs. Your results should also help you look more youthful, along with helping you feel comfortable again in revealing clothing like swimwear, shorts and skirts.
