The purpose of thigh lift surgery is to reshape the thighs by lifting and reducing excess skin near the inner thighs and the top of the thighs. In a crescent lift the incision is made near the groin so that scars from the procedure are well hidden. Following a thigh lift the patient’s skin on the thighs is tighter and sagging tissue is reduced. While the thigh lift can be performed alone, sometimes it is done in conjunction with other procedures such as a central body lift. Thigh lift surgery is well tolerated by patients, but the recovery time is lengthier than other plastic surgery procedures. If you are interested in re-contouring your thighs, contact the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center for a consultation.
