If your thighs lack definition or have become flabby, dimpled and saggy, a skilled cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Robert Aycock can help you return your legs to a youthful contour. A thigh lift, or thighplasty, can help improve the appearance of your upper thighs, greatly enhancing the look and fit of pants and giving you the confidence to wear shorts and show off your legs again.
Performed under general anesthesia, thigh lift surgery is an outpatient procedure that requires expert tissue manipulation techniques. Dr. Aycock creates your ideal contour by gently removing excess skin and fat and tightening the remaining skin, the same principle used for other lift procedures like facelift and buttock lift. Some patients may require liposuction to further refine the area, or benefit from buttock augmentation to create dramatic contour.
Men and women who are over age 18 and are in good health may be approved for a thigh lift after a thorough examination. Many patients complain about sagging skin in the thigh area as a result of genetics, even before the rest of their body shows signs of aging. This procedure is particularly helpful for patients who’ve experienced significant weight loss and would like to get rid of the hanging skin.
The final result of thighplasty is a tighter, firmer thigh appearance. Thigh lift patients may choose additional complementary surgeries like these to help them achieve their optimal proportions:
