What are my surgical alternatives to thighplasty?

Other body contouring procedures can also help lift and tighten your thigh region. For example, a buttock lift could enhance the appearance of your upper thighs, or thighplasty could be part of a more comprehensive lower body lift. If your primacy concern is excess fat rather than drooping skin, liposuction alone may be sufficient to satisfactorily sculpt your legs. Your plastic surgeon can more completely explain applicable alternative body contouring surgeries to you at your initial consultation.

Can I combine a thigh lift with other surgical procedures?

Yes. Thighplasty is often one part of body lift surgery for patients who have experienced massive weight loss, and many plastic surgeons perform liposuction before beginning the thigh lift process. You can also combine thighplasty with plastic surgery for other areas of the body. For example, you might simultaneously undergo an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) along with your thigh lift.

How long will my results last?

Provided that you maintain your overall health and avoid weight fluctuation, the results of your thigh lift could last for 20 years or more. However, you will still be susceptible the effects of aging and damage from sun exposure. The cosmetic surgeon can give you suggestions to help you maintain your new thighs.

How long does thigh lift surgery take?

Thigh lift surgery typically takes between two and three hours to complete, but you will be sedated or unconscious for this period and probably will not remember it.

Do I have to meet specific weight requirements to be eligible?

No. However, your weight must be stable before thigh lift surgery and you must not have too much fat in your thighs, since this surgery primarily targets skin and soft tissue. You will need to be within 30 percent of your desired weight to be a good candidate for liposuction, if you want to combine this treatment with thighplasty (as many patients do).

Are thigh lifts only for people who have experienced massive weight loss?

No. This surgery is especially helpful for patients who have large folds of excess thigh tissue due to massive weight loss, but anyone who wants to reduce the skin, fat, and tissue in their thighs for a tighter, fitter look can benefit from a thigh lift, as long as they meet the candidacy requirements.

Will I be able to sit and walk after surgery?

The plastic surgeon will most likely encourage you to take short walks after surgery, as this helps your blood circulate to promote tissue regeneration and reduce swelling, but you will not be permitted to sit on your thighs for several weeks, since this can put undue pressure on them and may interfere with your incisions.
