Thighplasty, generally known as a thigh lift, is a commonly performed body contouring cosmetic procedure. Often chosen by people who have undergone massive weight loss that has led to sagging skin or excess fat deposits around the thighs. By contouring this area, patients have smoother legs and often feel more confident in their body, able to wear shorts and swimsuits with ease. As a board-certified plastic surgeon in Raleigh, Dr. Ortiz has performed numerous thigh lifts, helping his patients feel comfortable and confident in their bodies.
Stubborn fat deposits and sagging skin caused by weight loss, aging, and body changes can leave you feeling embarrassed or self-conscious of your legs. Thigh lifts can help by contouring and smoothing the area and can be performed on either the inner or the outer thigh area, depending on your body goals.
When performing an inner thigh lift, the procedure begins with an incision starting from the groin and extending down and curving to the back of the thigh, making it possible to remove the extra fat and skin. Performing an outer thigh lift is similar, with an incision starting at the groin, then extending around the top of the hip to the back of the leg. We make sure the incisions follow the curves of the body, minimizing visible scarring. During the thigh lift liposuction is used to remove localized areas of fat in the thighs. While thighplasty is often an outpatient procedure, recovery time does vary depending on the patient and the extent of the procedure.
