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.

More Information

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.

Our approach

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.
