For loose or sagging skin on the thighs, patients may want to consider a thigh lift. With a thigh lift at Younger Image Plastic Surgery Center, patients can achieve smoother, contoured legs. We have offices in Vienna, Rockville, and Woodbridge, but also serve patients living in Washington, DC, Arlington, and nearby areas of Maryland and Virginia
What is a Thigh Lift?
A thigh lift is a procedure that can remove excess skin and fat from the legs to produce a smoother, firmer, and more contoured appearance. A thigh lift can be performed on either the inner thighs, outer thighs, or both. This allows patients to achieve the personalized results that they desire. For patients who would also like to remove excess fat from the legs, we may perform liposuction in addition to the thigh lift procedure.
How Much Does a Thigh Lift Cost in Washington, DC?
The cost of your thigh lift will vary depending on the extent of treatment necessary to deliver your desired results. During your consultation, we will evaluate your cosmetic goals to develop a personalized treatment plan. At this time, we will be able to provide the full cost of your treatment. To schedule any treatment, we ask for a $1,000 deposit that is nonrefundable. Two weeks before surgery, the patient will have a pre-op appointment where his or her full balance is due to be paid in full.
We offer flexible financing options, including Alphaeon® and CareCredit® to ensure that each patient has access to the treatment that they need. Alphaeon® and CareCredit® pay us in full and the patient pays the financing company a monthly fee. We also accept cash, checks, and major credit cards for your convenience.
What is the Thigh Lift Procedure Like?
During a thigh lift procedure, an incision is typically made in the groin right beneath the bikini line. Through this incision, we will remove excess fat and skin to improve the contours of the thighs. Afterwards, drains will be placed in the incisions for a few days. Then, compression garments will be worn to ensure a smooth recovery.
What is Recovery like Following a Thigh Lift?
After a thigh lift, most patients are generally able to return to work and other normal activities within a few weeks. You may experience mild swelling, bruising or discomfort, but any pain can be managed with oral medications. Exercise, heavy lifting, and other strenuous activities will have to be avoided for at least a month after the procedure.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from a Thigh Lift?
After your thigh lift procedure, you will notice results immediately. These results will improve as any swelling subsides and the body recovers from treatment. The results from a thigh lift can be long-lasting since excess skin and fat is permanently removed. However, future weight gain can detract from your results. We encourage patients to maintain healthy diet, exercise and lifestyle habits to make their results last as long as possible.
