The thighs are a common problem area that cause stress and discomfort for many. Aging and other factors may contribute to the thighs appearing dimpled or sagging. Significant weight loss can also cause excess, sagging skin on the thighs. A thigh lift can create a slimmer, smoother, more streamlined look of the thighs. With the improved proportion and symmetry delivered by a thigh lift, you can experience a better fit in jeans and tight clothing, and wear bathing suits and shorts with confidence.
How is a thigh lift performed?
Our thigh lift procedure is performed under general anesthesia and lasts about two to four hours. Depending on the type of thigh lift being performed, the exact methodology and results may vary. In nearly every case, your thigh lift will begin with liposuction to remove excess fat if present. Next, Dr. Stark will make an incision through which to remove excess tissue and shape the thighs to improve contour. When possible, he makes a horizontal incision in the pelvic area, ensuring any scarring will be minimally visible. However, for patients with extreme skin laxity, it may be necessary to make an incision down the length of the inner thigh.
Am I a thigh lift candidate?
