At Premier Plastic Surgery Center, thigh lifts can be used for patients who have lost a substantial amount of weight. We know it can be frustrating to see sagging skin on your inner thighs. If excess skin folds on your legs are troubling you, an inner thigh lift with Dr. Ferrari can surgically remove the extra skin after weight loss with a thigh lift for noticeably more shapely, attractive legs.
The thigh lift has given millions of patients around the world freedom from loose thigh skin. You could be next!
A thigh lift corrects sagging skin after weight loss on the upper legs. Surgical removal is the only way to get rid of loose thigh skin for good. This is especially true for patients that have spent a long period of time overweight, as the skin loses elasticity with age.
Inner thigh tightening will trim away and tighten loose skin on the upper legs so you can enjoy a boost in body confidence and say goodbye to unsightly skin folds. Thigh liposuction may be added to shape and sculpt the legs while removing thigh fat.
After your body changes dramatically in size thanks to weight loss, the skin may not snap back to the way it looked before gaining then losing weight. Skin can only stretch so much. You may be a good candidate for a thigh lift if you notice any of the following on your thighs:
The ideal candidate is someone that has reached a stable weight for at least 6 months after major weight loss. If you are considering a body lift (belt lipectomy) in addition to a thigh lift, it is best to have the abdomen surgery first. This procedure will tighten thigh skin, which can help you achieve even better results when undergoing a thigh lift to remove loose thigh skin. Charlotte plastic surgeon Dr. Ferrari will conduct a medical evaluation and may ask questions about your medical health history to determine your eligibility for a thigh lift after weight loss. You may be asked to refrain from nicotine use for several weeks to months, both before and after surgery, as smoking may result in poor healing.
Choosing an experienced surgeon is the most important factor in getting a great result. For excess skin removal surgery, it is important to select a doctor that specializes in post-weight loss and body contouring to ensure the best outcome.

With a relatively short downtime, thigh lift surgery can give you a new lease on life post-weight loss. Most Charlotte thigh lift patients take 10+ days off work, and from driving, to recover. This may vary based on the type and extent of loose thigh skin removal that is needed. There are several thigh lift techniques your surgeon may use.
The vertical thigh lift may have a slightly shorter recovery than a T-junction thigh lift, as it only involves a vertical incision. While all surgery causes some degree of pain, the thigh area tends to be quite manageable and heal very nicely. Prescription pain medication may be prescribed to ease discomfort. In just a few weeks, you will be back to work and most daily activities. For more information, speak to Dr. Ferrari at your personalized thigh lift consultation.
