Thigh Lift Surgery
A thigh lift can be performed on the inner or outer part of the thigh, or both, though not simultaneously. If you have excess fatty tissue in those areas, Dr. Serota can perform liposuction first. Then after a few weeks, he will reevaluate and determine if a lift is needed. The thigh lift is usually recommended if your skin is drooping around the thigh area after weight loss or removing the fatty tissue.
Traditionally skin on the outer portion of your thigh is more related to the buttocks sagging. If this is the case, we will recommend a buttocks lift instead.
This surgery is performed with general anesthesia. The incision is created within the fold of your groin, so as to hide the scar after surgery. The skin is pulled up and any excess fat may be removed through this incision. Recovery time is usually two to three weeks.
