Am I a Candidate for a Thigh Lift?


Share This Post

If you’ve lost weight and reached your goals, you should feel proud of the achievement and more confident in your body. Unfortunately, significant weight loss can leave you with loose, excess skin. A thigh lift is one of the multiple procedures Dr. Stile offers to tighten sagging skin so you can fully enjoy your slimmer, healthier body.

What is a Thigh Lift?

A thigh lift is a cosmetic surgery designed to improve the appearance of the thighs by removing excess skin and fat. Patients who have lost significant weight and are left with loose skin on their thighs or individuals with skin laxity due to aging may benefit from this procedure. A thigh lift can improve the contour of the thighs, reduce the appearance of cellulite, and create a more toned and youthful appearance.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Thigh Lift?

A thigh lift is a skin-tightening procedure that can benefit many people with loose, excess skin on their thighs. Ideal candidates should be overall healthy non-smokers with realistic expectations. You may be a good candidate for a thigh lift if you:

  • Have lost significant weight
  • Have loose, sagging skin around your thighs
  • Want to reduce stretch marks and cellulite
  • Are at or near your ideal weight
  • Have maintained your goal weight for at least a year
  • Want to improve the shape and appearance of your thighs

How Does a Thigh Lift Work?

Depending on the patient’s needs, Dr. Stile performs thigh lifts with multiple techniques, such as a medial, lateral, or bilateral thigh lift. The size and location of the incisions will depend on your unique procedure. 

Dr. Stile will remove and tighten the skin as needed on your thighs for a slimmer, more shapely appearance. Liposuction can also be included in your thigh lift to remove excess fat. 


What is Thigh Lift Recovery Like?

Since there are multiple types of thigh lifts and the procedure is tailored to each patient, your recovery experience will be unique. You can expect swelling, bruising, and discomfort for a few days after the surgery. Patients may need to wear a compression garment and sleep with their legs elevated. Dr. Stile will give you aftercare instructions and prescribe pain medication as needed.

Most patients can return to work after about two weeks. You may need longer for strenuous jobs, and you will need to wait a few weeks to resume exercise.

When Will I See Results from a Thigh Lift?

Though some patients see immediate improvement from a thigh lift, swelling and bruising may obscure your results initially. You can enjoy your slimmer, firmer thighs as these side effects fade. Your final results should be apparent after several months, and these can last a decade or more. A healthy lifestyle and weight management are essential for long-lasting results.
