Thigh Lift

Serving Orange County: Newport Beach, CA

Thigh Lift ModelA 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.

Am I A Thigh Lift Candidate?

Here are some of the common reasons I hear about why a person is considering a thigh lift:

  • My thighs have a saggy appearance ever since I lost weight
  • The loose skin in between my thighs causes chafing and irritation
I like that Dr. Savalia prides himself on all of his patients looking natural. He is so warm and welcoming. When I visit him for appointments, I feel like I’m visiting a friend.– AMY, Real PatientSee more Real patient Stories

Thigh Lift Procedure

I perform both inner and outer thigh lifts, very often in combination with additional procedures for body contouring following weight loss.

  • Inner Thigh Lift – Also called a medial thigh lift, this procedure removes excess skin and tissue along the inside of the thighs. I typically place an incision within the natural crease of the groin to minimize the appearance of scarring, though if there is a substantial amount of excess skin, the incision may need to extend down to the knee. Through the incision, I am able to remove excess soft tissue and skin for an improved inner thigh contour.
  • Outer Thigh Lift – Technically referred to as a lateral thigh lift, this procedure improves the appearance of the outer thighs to sculpt and remove the fatty “saddle bags.” I often perform an outer thigh lift in conjunction with a tummy tuck and/or liposuction. Excess skin and tissue are removed through an incision that extends from the groin to hip.

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.
