Tighten and Reshape Your Legs
Improve the shape and appearance of your thighs! A thigh lift at the Center for Plastic Surgery at Castle Rock is designed to remove unsightly amounts of excess skin and fat on the inner and outer areas of your thighs.
The Benefits of a Thigh Lift
Thigh lifts are customized to your needs. Our plastic surgeons work to help tighten and reshape your thighs for a smoother and more proportioned contour of your lower body.
Thigh lifts help to treat:
- Loss of skin elasticity
- Sagging, wrinkling, or dimpled skin
- Loose or hanging skin
By adding dimension to what was once an undefined contour, your legs will appear firmer, younger, and healthier, giving you a slimmer overall physique.
The Thigh Lift Procedure
Your leg surgery will take around two to three hours, and depending on your specific needs, will include either an outer or inner lift, which can be combined with a lower body lift or other body contouring procedures.
While the patient is anesthetized, incisions are made at the top of the leg, where the lower hem of a bikini bottom would rest. A predetermined amount of skin will be removed from the designated area along with any localized pockets of fat. The remaining skin will be repositioned and tightened along both sides of the leg.
With most thigh lifts, the incisions are closed with deep sutures to ensure that future sagging does not occur. Drains may be placed to allow excess fluids to drain and are typically removed after several days. After surgery, your thighs will be wrapped in gauze or a compression garment. You should be able to return to normal activities within one to three weeks.
Begin with a Thigh Lift Consultation
If going to the gym is just not cutting it for definition in your thighs, a thigh lift might help give you the slimmer physique you have been looking for. If you’re not ready for surgery, we can also discuss CoolSculpting® (a non-surgical alternative to a thigh lift) during your consulation. Give our office a call to get started.
