Thigh Lift

Whether through weight loss or time, your thighs can experience changes that are less than desirable. Skin laxity leads to drooping of the upper thighs, and those extra skin folds can keep you from wearing your skinny jeans comfortably. You may become self-conscious about wearing shorts and swimsuits because of the bagginess of your upper leg. The formation of cellulite in the area may add to your cosmetic concern.

A thigh lift is a surgical procedure Dr. Saad performs that can address these concerns and create a smoother contour from the hip to the knee. This procedure removes the excess skin from the top of the thigh, enhancing your profile and eliminating painful irritation due to skin friction. The surgery produces dramatic, long-lasting results, whether it is performed alone or in combination with other surgical procedures, such as liposuction or a butt lift.

Are You a Candidate?

Dr. Saad may recommend a thigh lift if you have any of these concerns:

  • Loose skin at the top of the thighs that makes you self-conscious
  • Excess skin as a result of massive weight loss
  • Skin laxity that makes it uncomfortable to wear some types of clothing

Candidates for thigh lift surgery need to be in relatively good health. Smokers will be asked to quit at least six weeks before surgery to ensure the nicotine does not interfere with the safety or success of the procedure and healing process.

Thigh Lift Options

Dr. Saad offers two different options for thigh lift surgery:

Medial Thigh Lift

This procedure addresses sagging in the inner thigh and involves an incision in the groin area. This allows for removal of excess fat and sagging skin, often creating the coveted “thigh gap” that many women want. Dr. Saad may use liposuction during the procedure to further sculpt the inner thigh if necessary.

Lateral Thigh Lift

The lateral lift procedure targets the outer thigh, producing a smooth contour up the outer leg to the hip. It also provides contouring to the buttock area. The incision for an outer thigh lift will be more extensive, usually circling the hip from the groin to the back. Dr. Saad will take special care to ensure that your incision and any post-operative scarring will be safely hidden underneath clothing and bathing suits.

Dr. Saad will tailor your surgery to the amount of correction you desire. Because of his many years of experience, he can pinpoint your specific needs and customize your procedure in order to provide the precise results you want.

About Your Surgery

General anesthesia is usually preferred for thigh lift surgery, although it is typically performed on an outpatient basis. Typically, a few hours are needed to provide the necessary improvement and allow for the meticulous suturing required to minimize visible scarring, but the length of the procedure may vary based on the amount of correction that is needed.

The Recovery Process

You will receive a specific list of aftercare instructions to make sure that the recovery from your thigh lift goes as smoothly as possible. A support garment may be recommended to prevent fluid buildup and ensure a safe and healthy healing process. You will probably be able to return to most of your activities within seven to 10 days, although strenuous activity will be restricted for a bit longer so that your incision has time to heal completely.

A thigh lift offers visible results that will be permanent as long as a healthy weight is maintained after surgery. This procedure can enhance your body contour and restore your self-confidence, so you can wear the bathing suits and clothing you’ve been wanting to. To find out if a thigh lift is the right choice for you, schedule your personal consultation with Dr. Saad.
