Thigh Lift in Los Angeles, CA

Rebuild and remake your silhouette to its youthful physique with a thigh lift procedure performed at Beverly Hills Breast and Body Institute by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jaime S. Schwartz, M.D., F.A.C.S. A thigh lift from Dr. Schwartz could be the perfect toning treatment for all those Beverly Hills and Los Angeles area residents who want to restore and recharge with a svelte and slimmer looking self.

What Is A Thigh Lift?

The inner thighs are one of the most challenging areas to improve with just the resources of diet and exercise, especially if you have excess skin in that area. A thigh lift is a surgical procedure performed by Dr. Schwartz to eliminate excess fat and skin around the inner thighs. It is often combined with a brachioplasty to rid the upper arms of sagging skin and/or a body lift to lift the sagging skin on the buttocks and abdomen after a great deal of weight has been lost.

Benefits of a Thigh Lift

A thigh lift addresses two specific cosmetic problems that are experienced by men and women. First, the procedure removes excess skin that hangs loosely on the thighs. Aging and weight changes affect the elasticity of the skin on your body and face, to the point that your skin can’t really “bounce back” from certain types of stresses. Without enough elasticity, the skin does not “snap” back into place. Secondly, a thigh lift can also remove unwanted deposits of stubborn fat that just cannot be eliminated with diet and exercise.

Is A Thigh Lift Right For Me?

While you may lose additional weight through a thigh lift, this procedure is not meant as a weight-loss tool, but as post-weight loss sculpting of the thighs. After your thigh lift, you will have an enhanced thigh contour, one that’s smoother. Your skin should have a much silkier and toned appearance as well. Take the time today to contact us and set up your consultation with Dr. Schwartz and find out if a thigh lift is right for you.

Elements of a Thigh Lift Procedure

A thigh lift is performed under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis. It may be performed along with other body contouring procedures, such as a brachioplasty or body lift. During your consultation, Dr. Schwartz will build out a treatment strategy and together you can discuss the different elements of the thigh lift procedure, and decide if it is right for you.

What Is a Thigh Lift Procedure?

During your procedure, Dr. Schwartz will make an incision along the inner fold of your thigh to minimize any possible scarring and for the utmost elegance in your results. The excess skin and superficial fat is pulled tight and removed to create a smooth skin surface. In patients who have lost a more significant amount of weight after gastric bypass or banding, a vertical incision may be made along the inner thigh. Surgeries typically require about two to four hours to complete, depending upon the amount of skin removed and whether or not you elect to combine a thigh lift with a butt lift or other body contouring procedures.

How Long Is The Recovery After a Thigh Lift Procedure?

Following a thigh lift, you should plan to take a week off from work and normal activities so you can rest as much as possible to reduce motion in the area of the sutures. We will provide you with pain medications to take after you return home. You will need to avoid strenuous activities for at least a month. You will find that the scar will always be somewhat visible but will fade over time to a fine line and should be hidden in the panty-leg line of your undergarments.
