4 Reasons to Consider a Thigh Lift

Do you have loose or sagging skin due to weight loss or aging? A medial thigh lift is a safe and effective body contouring procedure that can help rejuvenate your appearance and help you feel comfortable in your skin once again.

As we age, our skin naturally loses elasticity and begins to sag, and the same is true for the skin on our thighs. Apart from aging, there are a number of other factors that can contribute to sagging skin, including:

  • Repeated periods of weight loss/gain
  • Loss of bone density and muscle mass
  • Rapid weight loss
  • Excessive sun exposure

In cases where the skin on your thighs cannot be tightened with diet and exercise, plastic surgery may be the answer. A thigh lift is a safe and beneficial body contouring procedure that is proven to deliver a long-lasting and pleasing solution.

What is a Medial Thigh Lift?

A medial thigh lift is a body contouring procedure that is designed to lift and tighten the loose and sagging folds of skin patients may experience around the inner thigh area.

When performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon, a thigh lift can safely:

  • Remove excess tissue
  • Result in firmer and smoother thigh skin
  • Create a more youthful and pleasing figure
  • Create better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body


Is a Thigh Lift The Right Body Contouring Procedure For Me?

If weight control efforts such as diet and exercise have not achieved your body contouring goals, then a medial thigh lift may help you achieve a firmer, more youthful appearance.

Suitable candidates for this plastic surgery include patients who are:

  • In good overall health
  • Non-smokers
  • Within a few pounds of their ideal weight
  • Healthy with no medical conditions that can impair healing or increase risk of surgery
  • Committed to leading a healthy lifestyle, including proper nutrition and fitness
  • Worried about excess soft tissue along the inner (medial) thigh region and/or the outer (lateral) thigh

It’s important to note that every case is unique and upon examination during your initial consultation, your plastic surgeon will assess your suitability for this body contouring procedure.

Risks and Benefits of a Thigh Lift: What You Should Know

A thigh lift procedure can provide many aesthetic and health benefits for patients but before opting for this plastic surgery, you must fully understand the associated risks and benefits. This will allow you to make the most informed decision about whether this is the right body contouring procedure for you.

Benefits of a Thigh Lift

  • Your body will appear more proportional and shapely
  • Your thighs will be firmer, smoother, and more youthful
  • A thigh lift will help tighten loose skin in the inner and outer thighs
  • It will remove unwanted fat from the inner thighs, tops of your knees, and outer thighs

Risks of a Thigh Lift

  • There may be some visible scarring but this will become indiscernible over time
  • Relatively long recovery period (typically 3 weeks)
  • A secondary procedure may be required to correct any unevenness or bumps
  • Risk of infection or adverse reaction to anesthesia

Latest Testimonial

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
