The thigh lift is a body contouring procedure Dr. Jonathan Kramer performs to tighten loose skin along the upper thighs. This surgery is especially common with men and women who struggle with areas of excess skin after losing a significant amount of weight.
Primary reasons to have a thigh lift:
- You are left with excess skin around your thighs after losing a large amount of weight
- You are unable to tighten loose skin with diet and exercise alone
How a Thigh Lift is Performed
Dr. Kramer will make an incision along the natural contours of your upper inner or outer thigh depending on your unique circumstances. The underlying tissue is then reshaped to create a firm and well-balanced foundation for your thighs. Once the desired shape is achieved, excess skin is removed to eliminate drooping or sagging.
Love the Look of Your Legs
After losing a large amount of weight, skin will often lack the elasticity to tighten up to your body’s new smaller size. These areas of loose skin are nearly impossible to improve even with diet and exercise. A thigh lift allows men and women to tighten their legs and enjoy their new, slimmer bodies after weight loss. Dr. Kramer recommends thigh lift surgery for patients who have not been able to tighten the loose skin despite a healthy lifestyle.
Healing After Thigh Lift Surgery
Your thigh lift recovery will vary based on the techniques used during your surgery. Most patients are able to return to work about 2-4 weeks after their thigh lift. You will need to avoid higher levels of activity or exercise for about six weeks to avoid any unnecessary complications. After your thigh lift, your legs will be well-toned with youthful contours and a natural appearance.
