    Thigh lift

    What are the steps of a thigh lift procedure?A thigh lift cosmetic surgery is the most effective procedure available to eliminate sagging skin and stubborn fat from the inner and outer thighs and enhance your upper leg contours. In some cases, the surgery may be combined with a thigh liposuction to create more natural looking results.

    During your pre-op consultation, your surgeon will explain the steps involved in your customized thigh lift procedure. Once you know what the surgery is going to entail, you will feel more confident and will be able to complete the procedure successfully. If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to share with your surgeon at any stage before your scheduled thigh lift surgery.

    Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides thigh lift surgery to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, and Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.

    Administering Anesthesia

    On your surgery day, the nurse will check your basic health parameters before you are moved to the operating room. The surgeon will mark the areas where they plan to place the incisions for your thigh lift plastic surgery. Before they begin the procedure, a qualified anesthesiologist will administer general anesthesia to you.

    This will instantly put you in deep sleep so that you will feel no pain or discomfort throughout the surgery. Following the procedure, you will be brought out of anesthesia and you will have no recollection of the procedure.

    Thigh Lift Surgery Procedure

    Medial Thigh Lift

    Your surgeon will create an incision in the groin region along the inner aspect of your thigh. Through the incision, they will remove excess skin and fat. Depending on your pre-determined surgery plan, thigh liposuction may also be performed to remove stubborn fat deposits.

    Your surgeon will re-contour the groin to knee area and then repeat the same procedure for your outer thighs. If you have heavy thighs, a significant wedge of tissue may be removed from the outer thighs to create a proportionate, shapely upper leg appearance.

    Lateral Thigh Lift

    A lateral or outer thigh lift cosmetic surgery may be performed as a separate procedure or in conjunction with an inner thigh lift. A lateral thigh lift is usually a more elaborate procedure because it may involve re-contouring of the buttocks in addition to the outer thighs.

    A substantial amount of tissue removal may be necessary, depending on the amount of excess fat and loose skin in your upper legs. Scarring is generally more visible in an outer thigh lift, but an accomplished plastic surgeon will be able to conceal the scars in discreet locations so that they are hidden under your clothing.

    Post-Surgical Recovery

    Recovery process is a vital element in your thigh lift surgery to ensure safe and sustainable results. In the first few days following your thigh lift, you may experience some bruising, swelling, and inflammation in the incision areas. Your surgeon will prescribe pain medications for the first week.

    You will also be required to wear a compression garment in the first few weeks to provide support to your newly forming thigh contours. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, and Los Angeles, and nearby areas for thigh lift surgery.
