Thigh Lifts at South Coast Plastic Surgery
Do you have lots of excess skin around the thighs as a result of age or significant weight loss? Then it’s time to discover the thigh lift at South Coast Plastic Surgery in Ladera, CA!
What is a Thigh Lift?
A thigh lift is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin around the thighs that may have arisen as a result of age or significant weight loss. The thigh lift removes the excess skin while contouring the remaining skin around the upper thighs, creating a more natural contour that helps show off your thigh shape. In some cases, a patient’s health insurance may cover some or all of the costs associated with thigh lift surgery, especially if he or she gets regular infections as a result of excess skin.
How Does It Work?
The thigh lift is performed under general anesthesia. Incisions are placed along the inner thigh region to help mask surgical scarring. These incisions allow your plastic surgeon to access the thigh muscles and remove sagging skin. The skin that’s left over is repositioned over the thigh muscles for a more natural and contoured appearance. The incisions are closed at the end of the thigh lift procedure.
Am I a Good Candidate For a Thigh Lift?
A thigh lift is an excellent choice for patients who have poor skin laxity as a result of significant weight loss or due to getting older. Some patients need the thigh lift, as their excess lower body skin leads to frequent rashes and infections. The best candidates are healthy nonsmoking individuals with realistic expectations for their procedure.

What Results Will I See?*
Initial results can be seen right away, especially if patients have been bothered by lots of excess skin around the lower body and thighs. Results include tighter and more contoured skin that shows off the thighs you’ve worked so hard for!
What is the Recovery Like?*
Patients typically take about one to two weeks off from work after a thigh lift, as you’ll be required to spend the first week of recovery off of your feet. Patients can start to resume normal activities after about three to four weeks, but they may be prohibited from strenuous exercise until the sixth week of recovery. However, we encourage gentle walking as soon as you’re ready to reduce the risk of clots that can form in your legs. Safety is our number one priority at South Coast Plastic Surgery!
Your plastic surgeon will be in constant contact with you in order to monitor your progress and ensure that your recovery is going smoothly.
