What is a thigh lift?

A thigh lift can not only tighten and firm the inner and outer thighs, but it can also help to diminish unsightly cellulite dimples. During an inner thigh lift, an incision is created within the groin and/or inner thigh where it is well camouflaged. Excess fat can also be removed through liposuction, and the skin is then pulled taut for a sleeker, more youthful look.

During an outer thigh lift, incisions are made in the hips. Again, liposuction is performed to suction out unwanted fat deposits, and then the skin is sculpted to create a more flattering outcome.

Who makes a good thigh lift candidate?

There are several different types of patients that will benefit from a thigh lift, including those who have recently loss a significant amount of weight; those who have undergone a pregnancy; those who are suffering from sagging skin and excess fat due to the aging process; and those patients whose body habitus is prone to fat deposited in the hips and thighs. 

Dr. Zampell will perform a physical evaluation at her Beverly Hills office to determine the best type of thigh surgery for resolving your cosmetic issues. All those undergoing surgery must be non-smokers of sound mind and body who are realistic in their expectations for their outcome.

What will my recovery entail?

The average thigh lift patient will require around seven to ten days of recovery from surgery.
