What is a Thigh Lift?

Thighplasty (thigh lift) can help patients to achieve a slimmer, more youthful upper leg appearance after aging, pregnancy, or weight fluctuations. Many clients eat a healthy diet and spend hours each week at the gym, yet are unable to accomplish their ideal body contouring goals through these means alone. A thigh lift can remove sagging skin and stubborn fat, creating a more flattering physique that breeds self-confidence.

Am I a Candidate?

Each patient is unique, and Dr. Kinal will perform an in-depth consultation process along with a physical evaluation and thorough review of your medical history to ensure a thigh lift will safely and effectively achieve your body sculpting goals. In general, ideal candidates…

  • Are at a stable, healthy weight
  • Have an excess of soft tissue in the inner thighs
  • Are struggling with saddlebags in the outer thighs
  • Are in good physical and mental health
  • Are non-smokers
  • Have realistic expectations
  • Have tried dieting and exercise to no avail

How is a Thigh Lift Performed?

Thigh lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia and takes several hours to complete. Dr. Kinal will create small incisions in the targeted areas, removing excess skin and tissue to improve the overall upper leg contours. He may also employ liposuction to trim stubborn pockets of fat that do not respond to exercise. The remaining skin is then tightened and redraped, and the incisions are closed with fine sutures. 

Thigh Lift Options

A thigh lift can be customized to meet your needs and is often included as part of a lower body lift or a combination mommy makeover procedure. The following options will be presented during your confidential consultation:

Medial (Inner) Thigh Lift

An inner thigh lift is usually the most requested version of the surgery. Incisions are created within the folds of the groin, allowing Dr. Kinal to remove a moderate amount of skin, tissue, and fat.

Vertical Thigh Lift

Here, an incision is made beginning at the groin crease and extending to the inner knee area. Scarring may be noticeable when wearing a bathing suit or shorts. However, this approach is ideal for those with more significant contouring needs.

Outer Thigh Lift

An outer thigh lift involves an incision that stretches from the groin around to the hip. Dr. Kinal will excise a wedge of skin from the outer thigh region, tightening the remaining skin to produce a firmer, more toned upper leg aesthetic.

Spiral Thigh Lift

A spiral thigh lift will address the inner and outer thighs simultaneously. The incision is made below the buttocks, circling through to the groin area. For those who have undergone massive weight loss or who have had bariatric surgery, this approach may be ideal.

After a thigh lift, patients will experience some swelling, bruising, and soreness. Dr. Kinal will provide prescription pain medications and a detailed aftercare plan. The thighs will be wrapped in compression bandages, which should remain in place for around one week. Patients can shower and bathe normally within 5-7 days.

Gentle walks can be taken right away. This promotes healthy circulation, prevents complications, and can elevate the patient’s mood. However, strenuous activity and weight lifting should be postponed for 4-6 weeks, or as advised by Dr. Kinal. Most clients will return to work within 1-2 weeks, provided that their jobs are not physically demanding.

Is a thigh lift safe?

Many patients are concerned about the risks of general anesthesia. This is a normal feeling for most. Dr. Kinal insists on exhaustive pre-surgical testing and clearance to ensure the procedure will be safe for each patient. This reflects his commitment to providing a seamless, stress-free experience from start to finish.

Can a thigh lift be combined with other procedures?

Yes. A thigh lift can be included in a mommy makeover, or it can be combined with liposuction, BodyTite, or BBL. Speak with Dr. Kinal during your private consultation about customizing your treatment experience to accomplish all of your unique body contouring goals.
