Dr. Yousefi offers thigh lift surgery for patients in Washington, DC, Vienna, Arlington, and surrounding areas of Northern Virginia.
Thigh lift surgery is intended to lift and re-contour thigh skin that is sagging and dimpled. Thighplasty removes excess fat and skin from the inner and outer thighs to create a tighter, firmer, and more toned thigh appearance. While liposuction alone can improve the contour of the thighs when skin tone is good, the thigh lift procedure usually involves both liposuction and the removal of excessive skin from either the inner or outer thigh or both.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Thigh Lift?
There are many American men and women who look to thigh lift surgery to correct the following concerns:
- Excess skin on thighs from weight loss or aging
- Excess fat on thighs
- Fat deposits on thighs that don’t respond to diet and exercise
- Schedule your thigh lift consultation with Dr. Yousefi today to see if thighplasty may be right for you.
How Is a Thigh Lift Performed?
Dr. Yousefi will begin with a small incision in the groin beneath the bikini line. Dr. Yousefi typically uses liposuction to remove extra fat in the thigh area and then removes a piece of skin in the upper part of the groin. Many times, he removes five to 10 inches of the skin (in length), although it depends on the amount of excess skin present. A drain is placed in the incision for about two days and then removed. Dressings and light compression garments are used for several days.
What Can I Expect After a Thigh Lift?
Patients wear a compression garment after surgery to assist with healing and tightening of skin. After a thigh lift, recovery from bruising and swelling should occur within the month following surgery. Patients usually need 6 weeks after surgery before attempting any strenuous activities. Full thigh lift recovery is generally complete about 4-6 months after surgery.
