Thigh Lift can be done either in conjunction with other surgery for patients who have experienced significant weight loss, or on its own. Thigh Lift may address issues in the buttock, outer thighs, or inner thighs. When posterior or lateral Thigh Lift is done in conjunction with a Tummy Tuck, it is often called a Body Lift or Belt Lipectomy.
Thigh Lift Reviews
"I could not have had a better experience. I am a week out from having a breast lift and implants along with lipo suction and a thigh plasty . I know that sounds like a lot and I was worried about getting so much done at one time. Dr. Nachbar reassured me that it was normal how I was feeling and everything will be fine. He and his staff are so caring and supportive in all they do. This man is an excellent Doctor and a perfectionist to say the least. I am sore but in no way am I in any pain and I can't believe it!! I'm so happy with my breast I could just scream and my lower half will be wonderful I'm sure it is just too early to tell. Don't waste your time with anyone else. I had interviews with three prominent plastic surgeons in Scottsdale and Dr. Nachbar is by far the best you will ever have. As I heal I will defiantly keep you all posted."- C.M. / Google / Jun 04, 2018

After you lose significant amounts of weight, sometimes called "Massive Weight Loss", sagging of the skin is inevitable. Fortunately, there is something you can do about it. Different procedures can help different parts of the body.
When the buttock and/or outer thigh becomes loose and saggy, a "lateral" or "outer" thigh lift may be appropriate. Most often, this is done with an incision that runs above the buttocks, although for patients with a lot of excess skin, especially after they have already had a lateral thigh lift, an excision along the bottom of the outer buttock may be appropriate.
When the inner thigh skin has become loose, this may be treated with an "inner" or "medial" thigh lift. This can be done at the groin crease level alone, but is more commonly done, especially in patients who have lost a lot of weight, with an extension along the inner thigh to tighten the skin in the mid to lower thigh area.
Often, multiple procedures can be done at the same time. For patients who need more procedures that can be done in a single surgery, a second surgery can often be scheduled from a few days to few weeks apart.
Plan Your Procedure
The best way to learn if Thigh Lift could benefit you, and especially if there are other areas you would like to improve at the same time, is to make an appointment with Dr. Nachbar for a complimentary consultation. We look forward to meeting you!
