Thigh Lift

Get Slimmer, More Defined Thighs 

What is a Thigh Lift? 

A thigh lift is a cosmetic procedure that reduces excess fat and skin on the thighs, creating a slimmer and more defined look. It can also help reduce the circumference of the thighs by addressing the inner thighs, where you might experience chafing and irritation because of excess skin and fat. The result is a better clothing fit and greater confidence in wearing shorts or skirts.

“This was my second consultation with Dr. Rostami. She was very personable, made great recommendations, and did not try to “up sell” me on anything. I feel very confident in her hands for my upcoming procedures.”

Am I A Good Candidate for a Thigh Lift? 

Good candidates for a thigh lift are patients at an otherwise healthy weight but with areas of excess fat or skin in the thighs (typically due to weight fluctuations or pregnancy). You should be in good health and have realistic expectations about what a thigh lift can achieve. Our team will review your candidacy during a consultation. 

Benefits of the Thigh Lift 

The benefits of a thigh lift include: 

  • Slimmer thighs 
  • Better clothing fit 
  • Increased confidence 
  • Reduced discomfort from chafing or irritation 

The Thigh Lift Procedure 

The thigh lift can be performed with a couple different incision options – the inner and outer thigh incisions. Our team will review the best one for your goals during your consultation. Once an incision has been made, excess skin and fat will be removed, and the thighs will be reshaped according to your goals. Liposuction may be used to contour the surrounding areas further. Once complete, you can return home for recovery.

After your thigh lift, you can expect swelling and discomfort, but they will subside with time. You will have restrictions on your activity and detailed aftercare instructions to follow. Once fully healed, you will have noticeably slimmer and sleeker thighs, expanding your wardrobe options and enhancing your confidence. A thigh lift can last many years with a healthy and active lifestyle.
