A thigh lift removes the loose skin and excess tissue through the inner and outer thighs that are common after significant weight loss and aging. I perform the procedure to improve the appearance of the thighs and also increase comfort where my patients are experiencing chafing during walking or other activities.

Thigh Lift Procedure
I perform both inner and outer thigh lifts, very often in combination with additional procedures for body contouring following weight loss.
Thigh Lift Surgery Recovery
An inner and outer thigh lift may be performed at the same time when necessary. After surgery, patients will wear a supportive garment and be encouraged to walk around as soon as they’re able. These efforts work together to help reduce swelling and encourage healthy blood circulation. The thighs will look swollen at first, and may feel painful. I can prescribe medication to help you feel more comfortable if needed. Although normal daily activities can usually be resumed two weeks after surgery, more vigorous activities should be avoided for a month or so.
Thigh Lift FAQs
Will a Thigh Lift Get Rid of My Cellulite?
Thigh lift is a body contouring procedure that involves removing excess skin and tightening the remaining skin on the inner or outer thighs. Because the procedure tightens skin, the appearance of cellulite can improve with thigh lift. Following the procedure, the thighs are smoother and patients can enjoy a more toned and proportionate appearance. If you struggle with unwanted, flabby skin on the thighs, thigh lift can be combined with liposuction. Or, you may choose to combine thigh lift with lower body lift, which removes skin on the buttocks, creating a more balanced overall body figure.
How Do I Maintain My Thigh Lift Results?
In order to maintain their slimmer, smoother thighs, patients are advised to maintain a healthy lifestyle following surgery. Gaining or losing a substantial amount of weight can alter results and worsen the appearance of cellulite. Smoking and overexposure to the sun can damage the skin on the thighs, making them look aged and wrinkled. Prior to your surgery, Dr. Savalia can make more recommendations for your post-op recovery care.
