How a Thigh Lift is Performed

Posted September 07, 2012 in Uncategorized

A thigh lift is a procedure in which excess skin is removed from your thighs to produce a toned, firm, appealing physique. Often performed as a post-bariatric plastic surgery procedure, a thigh lift can be combined with other body contouring procedures to help men and women who have lost substantial amounts of weight regain a slim and attractive appearance.

Los Angeles plastic surgeon Dr. Martin O’Toole will customize your thigh lift to meet your body’s unique needs. This may include:

·         Medial thigh lift – An incision is made horizontally from the groin to the crease in your buttocks, allowing Dr. O’Toole to contour the inner portion of your upper thighs.

·         Bilateral thigh lift – An incision is made in the groin at the upper part of the leg, allowing Dr. O’Toole to firm the outer and front part of your thighs.

·         Inner thigh lift – An incision is made in the crease where your thigh and pubic area meet, allowing Dr. O’Toole to tighten your inner thighs.

Through these incisions, excess fat may be removed with liposuction before Dr. O’Toole eliminates loose and unnecessary skin. Once this excess tissue and skin have been removed, your remaining skin will be tightened to provide a more sculpted contour.
