45 year-old woman with loose skin after 60 pound weight loss who underwent an abdominoplasty followed by a thigh lift.
A thigh lift, or “thighplasty,” is a surgery to remove excess skin and fat from the legs. The procedure removes loose, hanging skin and fat of the thighs but can sometimes include areas around the knee or into the lower leg. The goal is to create a tighter, more shapely contour of your thighs. The procedure involves incisions made along the length of hanging skin and fat and may be combined with liposuction. Patients who have lost a significant amount of weight may be good candidates for a thigh lift. The best candidates are patients who are at their stable, goal weight and with good underlying muscle tone.
A thigh lift is performed under general anesthesia and patients frequently go home the same day; however, an overnight stay may be required if combined with other procedures. The scars can be variable and unpredictable in appearance and widen or separate during the healing process. Due to swelling and bruising, the final result is seen in three to six months. The results are lasting with healthy maintenance of weight. *Results may vary
