This procedure is designed to improve the contours of the thigh by surgically reshaping and repositioning the underlying support structures and removing excess skin. Commonly performed in combination with liposuction, a surgical thigh lift can result in thighs with smoother skin and an overall more youthful appearance.
Treatment may be limited to the inner or medial thigh alone, the outer thigh alone or a combination of the two. As with all surgical procedures performed by the Loren S. Schechter, M.D. Plastic Surgery team, your thigh lift will be individualized to your specific body conditions and personal goals. Among the conditions that may be improved by a surgical thigh lift: lax, loose skin; excess fat and tissue; sagging body contours; and dimpled or uneven soft tissue (cellulite).
