Thigh Lift

Thigh Lift Surgery

Despite your best efforts with weight loss and an exercise program, it can be difficult to firm up the inner and outer thighs. Even the most active and fit patients can be overwhelmed by sagging skin and excess fat lodged on the upper thighs. San Diego plastic surgeon, Dr. Sadrian, offers thigh lift surgery in his La Jolla office, a procedure that addresses this issue specifically.

What is Thigh Lift?

A thigh lift creates a more sculpted body appearance by removing loose skin folds and excess fatty tissue on the inner or outer thighs. Through an appropriate incision, Dr. Sadrian will lift the thighs, leaving you with a trimmer, and more contoured appearance. When considering any type of surgery, it is essential to get to know your plastic surgeon. Sadrian Plastic Surgery Center is a leader in body-contouring procedures, including thigh lift surgery.

You may not be a good candidate
for this type of surgery if you:

  • Smoke

What Can I Expect with a Thigh Lift Procedure?

A thigh lift will be customized to match the needs of the patient. It is important to do your research and select a qualified plastic surgeon who has years of experience. Ask questions and make sure you are comfortable with Dr. Sadrian. His San Diego thigh lift patients often comment on his warm, friendly, caring demeanor, and are consistently thrilled with the results he achieves – he has a 5-star rating on realself.com based on patient reviews.

How Long Does Thigh Lift Surgery Take to Complete?

At Sadrian Plastic Surgery Center, Dr. Sadrian will do the incisions under general anesthesia with the utmost care. He will create incisions that are hidden within the natural contours of your body. The length of the incision depends on each patient and what needs to be corrected through surgery. Through the incision, Dr. Sadrian will tighten and remove any excess skin and fat, improving the overall contour and shape of the thighs for a trimmer, smoother look. Depending on what is needed, the surgery may last for about three hours – we never rush an important surgical procedure and take all the time needed to create exceptional results.

How Long is the Recovery After a Thigh Lift?

Following a thigh lift San Diego patients typically experience swelling, bruising, and soreness which are all normal. In the first few days post-treatment, you can expect to feel a tight sensation in your thigh area. It is recommended that you take gentle walks and keep moving from the day after your surgery. Regular activity can resume after Dr. Sadrian gives the go-ahead. Every patient heals at a different rate, but typically you will begin to feel yourself after a week to ten days.
