Thigh Lift (Thighplasty)
at Atlanta Plastic Surgery, P.C.

Performed at our Atlanta, and Cumming, GA locations.

Thigh Lift (Thighplasty) at Atlanta Plastic Surgery, P.C.Many people who have undergone drastic weight loss struggle with sagging skin on their thighs, leading to discomfort and an unbalanced appearance. Luckily, there is a solution: Thigh Lift (Thighplasty) Surgery. Unlike liposuction (body contouring), which isolates very specific regions of fat underneath the skin, thigh lift surgery affects the appearance of a larger area by removing layers of fatty tissue and excess skin on the inner and/or outer thigh.

Atlanta Plastic Surgery, P.C.’s plastic and reconstructive surgeons perform inner, bilateral, and medial thigh lifts to help reduce and tighten remaining tissues in the respective regions of the leg. For post weight-loss patients who may have multiple areas of excess skin, thighplasty can be performed in conjunction with abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), arm lift (brachioplasty), and body lift procedures.

Post bariatric surgery patients enjoy the freedom that accompanies shedding pounds of fat, but are often encumbered by the excess, hanging skin that is left behind. Because the skin’s elasticity is limited, many massive weight-loss patients seek thigh lift surgery (thighplasty) to rid them of the unsightly skin and complete the transformation they’ve worked so hard to accomplish.

Frequently Asked Questions about Thigh Lifts

  • Any procedure that requires cutting the skin will leave behind some form of scar, but during thigh lift surgery the curved horizontal incision that needs to be made can be placed in the crease of the groin, making it relatively easy to conceal in all but the most revealing of bathing suits. In some cases, if there is a large amount of excess skin, an additional vertical scar along the inner thigh may be necessary as well. Because there can be some downward migration of the scar due to the natural action of gravity, particular care must be taken during recovery to place as little stress on the area as possible. As always, it is pertinent that you follow all of your surgeon’s post-operative care instructions carefully.
