About Thigh Lift Surgery
Having toned, slender inner and outer thighs can change your appearance and self-confidence. Our plastic surgeons know how difficult it can be to achieve your desired physique by diet and exercise alone. Sometimes, these methods can prove to be ineffective and discouraging. That's why we offer a way to gain your confidence back and achieve your goals through a thigh lift operation at The Face & Body Center. This procedure performed at our Flowood, MS practice takes the loose and excess skin from weight loss or age on the inner/outer thighs and tighten it for a smooth, contoured look. Contact our office to learn more.
The ideal candidates for inner and outer surgical skin tightening of the thigh are:
- Men and women who have stretch marks and loose skin on their inner and/or outer thigh
- Men and women who have had weight loss surgery, maintained their goal weight for at least a year, and desire removal of the excess skin and remaining fat deposits
- Men and women who are in overall good health and who do not smoke
"Awesome Experince - After visiting just about every Surgeon in MS and LA, I saw Dr. Davidson, I knew right then he was my pick. In October 2016 I went in to the office and he drained my 450 each breast saline implants. No pain so simple, sent me home and said come back in 6 weeks. Mind you I still had the bags in. Thought this would be hard really never knew they were there. I had some pre-cancerous spots..."- A. / RealSelf / Jun 06, 2018
"Septoplasty/rhinoplasty: I’m 3 days post op and already very pleased with my results. - January 2019 I was in a pretty bad car accident. Airbags didn’t deploy, so nose met steering wheel! I had two fractures in the nasal bone and my left side cartilage was pushed in, forming a “dent” on the outside of my nose. Fast forward a few months, I met with dr Adrian Smith to discuss putting my nose “back to normal”. He addressed all of my concerns and his demeanor just put me at ease about the whole situation. I’m 3 days post op and already very pleased with my results."- R. / RealSelf / May 03, 2019

"I went in today for my surgical consult and I was quite surprised how wonderful the facility was. It was professional but also homely. From the very beginning, the front desk staff was very friendly. Everyone I met was kind and in good spirits. They all had a great attitude. They laughed a lot which means they have a great sense of humor. I’m very nervous about my procedure but as soon as I met Dr. Smith and his staff, I was completely at ease. He explained everything thoroughly and answered all of my questions. He gave me plenty of time to ask them, too. He didn’t push me out the door. I was well-informed about the procedure, he listened to exactly what I wanted, and he was confident in his abilities to give me what I desire. Upon request, I looked through a picture portfolio of his work and I was very impressed. The young lady came in and photographed me (before pictures, I suppose) and I actually laughed most of the time. Taking my clothes off in front of strangers makes me very nervous, especially with my condition. But I laughed, she laughed with me, but still it was a very comfortable and professional environment. I even had more questions while in the billing department, or the office that takes the payment for your procedures, and they phoned the nurse’s desk and sent me back to ask more questions. Not once did I feel like I was a burden or “just another patient.” I’m very much comfortable moving forward with this operation with Dr. Smith!"- Z.1. / Google / Apr 27, 2019
"Dr. Smith is the most personable doctor I think I ever met. He should teach a class on bedside manner. He did an excellent job removing a cyst from my head. I think I'm in love!!"- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Apr 19, 2019
What to Expect
Thigh lift surgery is performed quite often by plastic surgeons, especially now with so many successful weight loss surgery patients. This surgery can be performed in an outpatient setting, but if it is combined with other procedures, an overnight stay may be necessary. The incision for the thigh lift varies from patient to patient depending on what type of thigh lift is being performed (medial, lateral, etc.), as well as the amount, location, and severity of the loose skin being removed. This cosmetic procedure is performed with general anesthesia and usually takes 2 – 4 hours in the operating room. As discussed in the consultation, you can expect there to be swelling, bruising, and some pain after surgery — all of which can be managed accordingly.
After the thigh lift, you can expect to see smoother skin with less dimpling or visible cellulite. As each patient’s surgery is different, it is hard to estimate how long the recovery may be. It is recommended to follow all of the aftercare instructions and scar treatments as prescribed by your surgeon. You should wait to resume strenuous physical activity until released from your surgeon at the follow-up appointments.
