Thigh Lift

What is Thigh lift surgery?

Losing weight is a huge triumph for any individual. However, men and women who achieve their weight loss goals sometimes need one extra step to complete their physical transformation. Depending on how long you were overweight and how much weight you lost, sagging skin may be a new issue if the skin was not able to adapt to the new size and shape of your body.

The thighs, specifically, are an area of concern for many patients. Plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Schwartz offers thigh lift surgery (known as thighplasty) at Robert Schwartz Plastic Surgery in Dallas, TX, which trims away excess skin on the inner and outer thighs to create a tighter, more contoured appearance. This surgery has risen in popularity because it offers natural results for patients battling loose skin on the thighs.

Thigh lift ideal candidates

Thighplasty is a skin removal and tightening procedure that addresses extra skin. Thigh lift surgery is considered an after weight loss procedure. It is often performed on patients who have lost 100 pounds or more, but it is also popular among older individuals who are battling loose skin due to age, as well as women whose weight fluctuated due to pregnancy.

If you have hanging, wrinkly, or loose skin on the upper thighs (either the inner or outer thighs, or both), this surgery may be a big help. Please keep in mind that if cellulite is your main concern, Dr. Schwartz can suggest other procedures that can help reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Thigh lift surgical technique

During a thigh lift, general anesthesia is typically used. An incision is made near the top of the leg in the natural crease where the thigh meets the torso, and usually extends down to the midway point of the thigh area. This allows enough room to use liposuction (if needed) to remove isolated pockets of fat as well as trim away all loose skin at the top of the thigh area.

The remaining skin will be pulled upward so it can be tightened and safely secured with sutures. In some cases, an incision may be necessary in the outer thigh area or underneath the buttock, depending on the amount of tissue being removed. This surgery at Robert Schwartz Plastic Surgery reshapes the entire thigh area, leaving a shapelier, tighter, more contoured appearance.

What to expect after thigh lift

Thighplasty takes about 2 – 3 hours to complete. Once the surgery is over, you will be monitored and then sent home to recover. Discomfort, bruising, and swelling is commonly associated with the immediate recovery. Within a few days, most patients are up and slowly walking around, which is necessary for circulation and healthy healing.

The overall recovery period typically takes about 6 – 8 weeks. During this time, at-home wound care provided Dr. Schwartz will help the incision to heal properly. Even though there will be some scarring, the new shape and contour of your thighs will help you regain your self-confidence and display your legs with pride.
