About the Treatment
- Which procedure is right for me?
If your excess thigh tissue is limited to the upper third of your thighs, then a mini thigh lift may be the best option for you. If, however, you have excess soft tissue throughout the length of your thighs, then a full thigh lift may be indicated. This is more often the case with post-bariatric patients.
- How does Dr. Pirani perform this procedure?
Depending on the amount of excess soft tissue and the quality of a patient’s skin tone, there are several options for performing a thigh lift. For patients with only a small amount of sagging tissue limited to the upper thighs, a mini thigh lift (short scar) with liposuction is often the best option. In a mini thigh lift, the incision is usually well hidden in the groin crease.
For patients with excess soft tissues throughout the thighs down to the knees, a full thigh lift will improve overall thigh contour and circumference the best. This requires a long vertical scar that runs from the groin down to the knee along the inner thigh.
Most patients will experience some swelling, pain, and bruising around the incision site. Pain medication can help reduce pain and discomfort. Patients should avoid movements that can strain or pull thigh muscles, exercising caution when standing up, sitting, bending, or walking. We recommend limiting activity for a few weeks.
For a thigh lift consultation, Dr. Pirani will spend approximately 30 minutes going over all of your surgical options, after which he will create a custom surgical plan that addresses all of your concerns and goals. He will go over risks and possible complications and give you an idea of what you should expect in terms of results and recovery. Dr. Pirani’s goal is to educate you so that you fully understand your customized surgical plan and feel confident and informed.
