Thigh Lift

A thigh lift is a surgical procedure that tightens skin tissues and removes excess fat deposits from the thighs. Aging, childbirth, and dramatic weight loss can lead to skin laxity, which leads to bags of skin hanging off the thighs. Sagging skin can negatively affect your confidence, cause physical discomfort, and increase the risk of rashes on the inner thighs. A thigh lift involves trimming away excess skin tissues and tightening the underlying muscles, making your thighs look firm and contoured.

Dr. Chiodo’s Personalized Thigh Lift Technique

Dr. Chiodo performs a highly personalized thigh lift after a thorough evaluation. During your consultation, he examines your thighs, discusses your goals and concerns, understands why you’re pursuing a thigh lift, and reviews your medical history. He uses specialized techniques to measure the degree of skin laxity and identify the skin tissues that need removal. After a thorough evaluation, he selects the appropriate thigh lift technique for you — inner thigh lift, vertical thighplasty, or outer thigh lift.

Inner Thigh Lift

Dr. Chiodo makes an incision from the groin to the back of the thighs, following which excess skin on the upper thighs is removed. This procedure tightens the skin on the upper thighs and improves your thigh gap.

Vertical Thighplasty

Dr. Chiodo makes a vertical incision that allows him to remove excess skin and fat tissues from the upper and inner thighs. He also tightens the underlying muscles to make your thighs look firm and contoured.

Outer Thigh Lift

Dr. Chiodo makes an incision from the middle thigh to the knee, following which excess skin is removed from the entire length of the thighs. This technique lifts the thighs and buttocks, providing more dramatic improvements.

Goals of Thigh Lift Include:

  • Lift and sculpt the thighs
  • Ensure optimal physical comfort
  • Remove cellulite from the thighs
  • Remove excess skin tissues from the thighs
  • Prevent rashes on the inner thighs
  • Make it easier to exercise

Candidates for Thigh Lift:

  • Want to reverse the effects of age or childbirth on the thighs
  • Have excess skin laxity and fat deposits on the thighs

Recovery After Thigh Lift

You will experience swelling, tenderness, numbness, and bruising on your thighs after the procedure. The side effects will gradually subside after 1 or 2 weeks. You will have to wear compression garments to improve healing and recovery. You can resume your daily activities and work after 1 or 2 weeks, but strenuous exercise should be avoided for at least 4 to 6 weeks. The specific length of recovery will depend on the surgical technique used.
