A thigh lift is performed to tighten the skin around the inner thigh to form a more aesthetically pleasing contour.

The procedure is often combined with liposuction. The outer thigh is generally not targeted in a thigh lift as liposuction, and a butt lift produces better results in that leg area.

About the Procedure

This procedure requires a surgical incision of varying lengths based on how much skin must be removed. The location of the incision is usually on the medial aspect of the thigh and often extends along the groin crease. The position of the incision can be adjusted based on clothing preference or to attempt to reduce visibility.

After surgery, the patient is placed in a compression garment to limit swelling. Light activity usually is possible in approximately two weeks, while total physical activity is permissible at four to six weeks. All post-op symptoms should be resolved within six months, and scars fade within six to twelve months.
