About Thigh Lift Surgery

Don’t fight with loose, excess skin as a result of weight loss, pregnancy, or having aging skin. At Y Plastic, Reconstructive, and Hand Surgery, our skilled double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Asaf Yalif, is highly trained in providing patients thighplasty for lax, droopy skin on the thighs, as it trims the extra skin to create toned, slender inner and outer thighs. Many men and women have reached a stable weight through diet and exercise, and are still unable to tighten the look of their thighs. Consulting with Dr. Yalif in his office in Woodstock or Roswell, GA, is the next step to see real aesthetic results. Depending on the severity of the skin and the density of the fat, our cosmetic surgeon may also recommend liposuction for fat reduction in areas that need it most. Combining a thigh lift with liposuction may be the best answer to produce the most realistic results.

Ideal Candidates

The ideal candidates for inner and outer surgical skin tightening of the thighs are:

  • Men and women who have stretch marks and loose skin on their inner and/or outer thighs
  • Men and women who have had weight loss surgery and have maintained their goal weight for at least a year and desire removal of the excess skin and remaining fat deposits
  • Men and women who are in overall good health and who do not smoke

What to Expect

Thigh lift surgery is performed quite often by plastic surgeons, especially now with so many successful weight loss surgery patients. This surgery can be performed in an outpatient setting, but if it is combined with other procedures, an overnight stay may be necessary. The incision for the thigh lift varies from patient to patient, depending on which type of thigh lift is being performed (medial, lateral, etc.), as well as the amount, location, and severity of the loose skin being removed. This cosmetic procedure is performed with the patient under general anesthesia and usually takes 2 – 4 hours in the operating room. As discussed in the consultation, patients can expect there to be swelling, bruising, and some pain after surgery, all of which can be managed accordingly.

Anticipated Results

After the thigh lift, you can expect to see smoother skin with less dimpling or visible cellulite. As each patient’s surgery is different, it is hard to estimate how long the recovery may be. It is recommended to follow all of the aftercare instructions and scar treatments as prescribed by the surgeon. All patients should wait to resume strenuous physical activity until instructed by the surgeon at the follow-up appointments.
