What is a Thigh Lift?

A thigh lift is a surgical procedure that treats excess skin of the inner thigh area. Patients often complain of excess skin of this area after weight loss or with age. As with many plastic surgical procedures, the surgical technique used to address this area depends on the severity of the excess skin. In mild cases, certain non-surgical, or minimally invasive procedures, can be performed to help tighten and lift the excess skin and fatty tissue. In other cases, either a short scar or an extended scar procedure is required to achieve maximum results. Extensive measures are taken by Dr. Danielle Andry, Dr. Courtney El-Zokm and Dr. Nandi Wijay to conceal these scars as best as possible, such as aggressive scar management techniques to keep the scars as light and inconspicuous as possible.

Why do you want a Thigh Lift in Houston, Texas?

Many of our patients who have undergone massive weight loss or have developed excess thigh skin with age are very self-conscious about this area. They complain that clothes do not fit correctly, they are unable to wear certain clothing and can have hygiene issues as well. Some patients simply desire sleeker, tighter looking thighs. A thigh lift can help you achieve this sleek contour.

What procedures are often performed along with a Thigh Lift?

Many patients seeking a thigh lift have undergone massive weight loss and require removal of excess skin from several areas of the body including the abdomen, arms, back, breasts and face. Dr. Danielle Andry, Dr. Courtney El-Zokm and Dr. Nandi Wijay spent a large part of their training working with one of the innovators in breast contouring surgery after massive weight loss. They have experience in both staging and combining many of these massive weight loss body contouring procedures, and can counsel their patients on the timing and progression of these surgeries. Please visit our massive weight loss/body contouring page for more details.

What do you want from a Thigh Lift?

Thigh lift procedures are often a careful balance between scarring and contour. While everyone’s goal is to maximize contour and minimize scarring, sometimes a trade off must exist. The surgeons at The Oaks Plastic Surgery want to work with you to achieve your specific goals, and perform the right procedure for you.

What can you expect for recovery after a thigh lift?

Your recovery will depend on the type of procedure performed by your plastic surgeon at The Oaks Plastic Surgery. You will likely have a surgical garment with surgical dressings in place. It is normal to have some drainage on these dressings after surgery. Depending on the type of procedure, you may also have some drain tubes in place. These typically are removed a few days to a few weeks after surgery. You will be given a scar care kit and detailed instructions regarding scar management.
