The Procedure

  • Anesthesia is general and the procedure takes about two hours.
  • The incision is placed in the groin beneath the bikini line where it is not easily noticeable. It has a tendency to heal slightly wide and dark, but it typically thins and lightens over time. Patients with mild to moderate skin laxity who want to avoid scars altogether might consider nonsurgical skin tightening with Renuvion®—instead of thigh lift surgery.
  • The procedure involves liposuction of any excess fat in the thighs and legs, then removing a crescent of skin high up in the groin, loosening the tissues below this and pulling them up and sewing the edges together. Deep stitches are secured to the ligaments and bone so there is less of a tendency for the skin to fall down. Then length of the incision depends on the amount of excess skin. It is not unusual to remove 5-10 inches in length!
  • Drains are used for two days. These are soft and can be removed without pain.
  • Dressings and a light compression garment are used for several days.
  • In some cases, other surgical procedures can be performed at the same time as a thigh lift, with patients combining procedures like liposuction or even a tummy tuck to achieve their goals.
