What is a Thigh Lift after Weight Loss?

To help reposition the thigh to a higher position and remove excess skin, an inner thigh lift or vertical thigh lift could be performed to boost confidence. To help reposition the thigh to a higher position and remove excess skin, an inner thigh lift or vertical thigh lift could be performed to boost confidence. An inner thigh lift can help correct sagging and excess skin, and the scar is easily hidden within the crease of the groin. Patients with even more excess skin often benefit from a full medial thigh lift, where the scar is left on the inner thigh. At Florida Plastic Surgery Group, a thigh lift is often a part of the staged body contouring procedures after weight loss.

Preparing for your thigh lift

Who is a candidate for a thigh lift after massive weight loss (i.e., body contouring surgery)? 

Men and women who have lost weight and have excess skin or sagging on their thighs are good candidates for a thigh lift.

How do I prepare for my thigh lift after massive weight loss (body contouring surgery)? 

Patients considering a thigh lift should ensure proper nutrition and vitamin supplementation in the weeks leading up to the procedure. Our doctors will discuss the importance of nutrition for the healing process during your initial consultation. To optimize your results, you should also refrain from smoking tobacco, marijuana, or vaping products four weeks before and after the surgery.

Recovery after your thigh lift body contouring surgery

The procedure is performed under general anesthesia, and patients are instructed to wear compression garments for the first few weeks. You could expect your incisions to heal in about two to three weeks. It is important to avoid exercise for approximately three to four weeks after your thigh lift surgery. Our cosmetic surgery team will be there to assist you throughout the recovery process and address any concerns you may have.
