Introduction to Thigh Lift Surgery

With a Thigh Lift, Dr. Zuckerman can slim the inner and outer thigh and the areas around the hips and knees. Patients typically desire a thigh lift because the skin around the legs has lost its elasticity due to the natural aging process, or fat deposits have been left behind following dramatic weight loss.

Thigh Lift Surgery in Detail



Under general anesthesia, the thigh lift procedure takes about two hours. An incision is made just below the bikini line, so as to remain inconspicuous and conceal the scar. The length of the incision depends on the amount of excess skin. Typically, Dr. Zuckerman will use liposuction to remove any stubborn pockets of excess fat in the thighs and legs, then pull the skin tight and draw it together to create a smooth appearance. Deep sutures and compression garments are usually used to reduce the tendency of the skin to fall down and ensure a quick healing process.

Thigh Lift Surgery Recovery



While some patients can return home within several hours following the procedure, most find they are more comfortable staying overnight. Bruising, swelling, and some pain can be expected, but this can be managed with medication. Some patients are able to return to some basic activities within the first week, but most typically return to daily routines within two to three weeks. The stitches are usually removed after 10 days; however, you should plan on missing work for a full week to avoid overexertion.

Dr. Zuckerman will discuss your specific needs during recovery in further detail throughout the consultation and surgical process, but stress that it is important to remember every patient reacts to surgery and heals differently.
