Thigh Lift

Reduce stubborn fat for an enhanced upper leg contour


Thigh lift is a surgical procedure that reshapes the thighs by eliminating excess skin and underlying fat after weight loss, resulting in a vastly improved contour and the proportion of the patient’s lower body. For optimal results, a thigh lift is often performed in combination with liposuction.

Ideal candidates for a thigh lift are people having trouble fitting into clothes due to heavy thighs and sagging. It’s recommended for patients who want their thighs to have a better proportion and contour with a firmer feel and appearance.

Thigh lift is performed under general anesthesia through incisions on the inside of the thighs. Dr. Kitto will remove excess skin from the thighs so they look and feel smoother and slimmer. She will then close the incisions and properly apply bandages over the surgical areas.

The most common side effects following a thigh lift surgery include bruising, swelling, and some discomfort. Some patients may have to wear compression garments for a couple of weeks depending on the extent of the procedure. Most patients return to work and normal daily activities within a week or two after surgery.
