What is a Thigh Lift?
A thigh lift is a surgical procedure that reshapes the thighs by reducing excess drooping skin, and in some cases fat, to achieve smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs.
What is it not?
A thigh lift is not a substitute for proper nutrition and exercise. Positive long-term results can be greatly lessened by major weight fluctuations due to unhealthy habits or lifestyles.
Is a Thigh Lift right for me?
If fitness and weight loss efforts have been ineffective in achieving a firmer, more youthful lower body appearance, a surgical thigh lift may be a good option for you.
Ideal candidates for this procedure:
- Individuals with a relatively stable weight
- individuals with excess soft tissue along the inner or medial thigh region and/or the outer thigh
- healthy individuals with no pre-existing medical conditions that could impair healing or increase the risk of surgery
- Individuals with a positive outlook and realistic goals for the results of a thigh lift
- Individuals who will continue to lead a healthy lifestyle, including nutrition and physical activity, after surgery.
Dr. Holland works closely with each patient to set realistic expectations for long-term success and happiness based on each individual’s body type, health history and lifestyle.
A thigh lift may not be for someone who is planning on substantial weight loss in the future. If this describes you, it may be best to postpone your thigh lift procedure, but if you’re not sure or have questions, we encourage you to give us a call, schedule a consultation and receive personal advice and care from Dr. Holland.
How much does a Thigh Lift cost?
The cost for a thigh lift varies from practice to practice and with a handful of variables. During your consultation, you’ll want to make sure you are taking into account the following costs:
- Surgeon’s fee
- Hospital or surgical facility fees
- Anesthesia fees
- Prescriptions for medication
- Post-surgery garments
- Medical tests
Ok, I'm in. What should I expect?
Step 1: Schedule a consultation!
At your consultation, be prepared to discuss realistic expectations based on your unique build, genetics, history and lifestyle. You may be asked to get pre-surgical lab testing, medication evaluation and to stop smoking if you are a smoker. A thigh lift does require anesthesia and you will receive specific pre- and post-operative instructions from your surgeon.
