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

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.
