A thigh lift is a body contouring procedure that is designed to re-shape, tighten, and enhance the appearance of your thighs by surgically removing excess skin and fat, resulting in smoother contours, and enhanced muscle definition. Toned thighs with attractive contours look amazing in pants, a bikini, and workout wear and can help to improve the balance of your body’s proportions.

Sometimes, diet and exercise alone cannot fix the problem of loose skin and stubborn fat deposits in the lower body area. You may have had great success with your weight-loss journey, but that excess skin and those stubborn pockets of fat require surgical precision and power to remove in order to enhance the appearance of your thighs without diminishing their natural appeal.

Thigh Lift Before & AftersProcedures like a thigh lift often involve the use of liposuction in order to provide effective and precise body-fat reduction. Removing excess fat is an essential step, as it creates a smoother and more attractive surface on the thighs. The next critical aspect of the procedure is tightly redraping the remaining thigh skin around the muscles of the thigh. This significantly increases muscle definition, which gives your thighs a fit, sexy, and more youthful-looking appearance.

They can help you to achieve your aesthetic goals and put the finishing touches on the figure you have worked so hard for.

Good thigh lift candidates should already be at or close to their ideal weight but find that they are struggling with excess fat that can only be removed through surgery. Although a thigh lift can remove a small amount of excess fat, it is not a weight loss method and cannot provide massive body-fat reduction. A thigh lift it is meant to enhance the contours of the body, not help you lose pounds. Patients should be non-smokers and in strong overall physical and mental health to ensure a smooth healing process and to ensure the quality of your results.


After a thigh lift, you can expect to need 2 to 3 weeks of downtime for proper healing. It is important to be slow, cautious, and careful in your movement during this time to avoid pulling on your incisions. Once your incisions have healed, light activity – such as gentle walks – is encouraged to improve blood flow and reduce swelling. Full recovery can take anywhere from 4 to 6 weeks, depending on the extent of your procedure.

We will follow up with you closely throughout your thigh lift recovery process to ensure healing is progressing normally, and to advise when it is safe for you to return to exercise and other strenuous activities.
