Thigh Lifts (Thighplasty) in Walnut Creek, California

Thigh Lift

Thigh Lifts are frequently performed for our San Francisco Bay Area plastic surgery patients following major weight loss or Bariatric Surgery. A thigh lift can tighten and tone sagging thigh skin and flabby thigh tissue. For the properly selected patient, thighplasty can help give you the slim, firm, contoured thighs you are looking for.

Thigh Lift (Thighplasty) Before and After Photos


The Thigh Lift involves removal of excess thigh skin and tissue, to create trim, beautiful results. The primary method of thigh lift uses an incision that wraps around the upper, inner thigh, from the groin to the fold under the buttocks. This allows the scar to remain as hidden as possible, and maximally remove excess tissue from the upper, inner and posterior thigh. An alternate approach uses an incision on the inner thigh that runs from the knee upward. This uses a more conspicuous scar location, but allows for better removal of lower, inner thigh skin. A third approach uses an incision that begins in the fold under the buttocks, and is extended upward and laterally to remove excess skin from the saddle bag region. The different approaches allow the Thigh Lift to be maximized in the region that has the most redundant skin. For optimal results, the thigh lift is sometimes combined with Liposuction.

If you suffer from sagging, unattractive skin on your thighs, you may be an excellent candidate for the Thigh Lift. After losing a significant amount of weight, your inner thigh skin may have lost its support causing your thigh skin to hang like drapery. Post-Bariatric Surgery patients in particular have excess thigh skin and can benefit from a Thighplasty.
