Benefits of a Thigh Lift

One of the more popular body contouring procedures, a thigh lift improves the proportionality of your body by creating firmer, slimmer, and smoother thighs. Some of the key benefits of this procedure include:

  • Smoother skin appearance
  • Slimmer thigh profile
  • Better proportioned thighs
  • Reduced excess fat and skin

Thigh Lift Options

Depending on the patient, one or more areas of the thigh may need to be lifted. Dr. Torabi will explain what each type of thigh lift entails during your initial consultation.

Inner Thigh Lift

This procedure is a great choice for patients who do not have too much loose skin. The focus is to tighten the tissue located on the upper part of the patient’s inner thigh. During surgery, your surgeon will make small (virtually invisible) incisions within the groin fold and contour the treatment area in line with your desires.

Vertical Thigh Lift

This treatment is popular with patients who need a dramatic procedure to address their problem areas. Incisions are made at the groin fold going downwards to the inner knee. Keep in mind that the incision site will be visible when you’re wearing short clothing or swimsuits. However, this option offers maximum skin tightening benefits.

Outer Thigh Lift

With this type of thigh lift, incisions start at the groin and move around the hip. Your surgeon will hide the incision line in the crease between the thigh and the hip.

Spiral Thigh Lift

Plastic surgeons use this kind of thigh lift to target all areas of the thigh. Incisions are made at the buttock fold and continue around the groin crease. The goal is to reshape the patient’s thigh in order to meet their cosmetic objectives. Depending on what the patient desires, various types of thigh lifts can be combined together. You will be able to discuss the best treatment option and ask any questions you might have during your initial consultation at Elite Plastic Surgery.

During Surgery

Thighplasty surgery in Phoenix may be performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. The procedure can be performed at a hospital, outpatient surgery center, or a surgeon’s office-based location. A thigh lift takes about two to three hours to complete, depending on the extent of the procedure and the amount of skin that needs to be removed. Our Arizona thigh lift surgeons at Elite Plastic Surgery employ the best surgical approaches to attain the best possible outcome while minimizing visible scarring and the risk of complications.

Thigh Lift Recovery

Following a thigh lift procedure in Phoenix, your surgeon will apply a surgical dressing at the incision site. It may be necessary to insert a small drain tube that can help get rid of excess fluids from the treatment area. You’ll be told what compression garment to wear through the recovery period.

The incision sites will be closed using sutures, and you will be monitored before being released to go home.

You should set aside about seven to 10 days away from work in order to ensure proper healing. Bruising and swelling are common following the surgery but usually subside within a few weeks. Most thigh lift patients are able to get back to their normal daily routines within four to six weeks.
