A thigh lift uses a variety of body contouring techniques to correct the visible signs of aging on the inner thigh. As we get older gravity, fluctuations in weight and loss of skin tone can contribute to saggy or flabby thighs. Thigh lifts are a highly-customizable procedure that can be tailored to your body type to help you meet your ultimate goals.
A Thigh Lift Can:
- Reshape the inner thigh
- Tighten loose, sagging skin
- Remove excess fat
- Provide a better fit for clothing
- Improve overall body image and self-confidence
How Does It Work?
Thigh lifts are done as an outpatient procedure in Image Surgical Arts ’s newest surgical center in Nashville, TN. Dr. Harris meticulously works to surgically tighten and remove excess skin on the inner thighs giving you a thinner, more youthful-looking appearance. Dr. Harris is a highly-skilled cosmetic surgeon and has the knowledge and training to keep scars to a minimum. Dr. Harris includes liposuction for all thigh lift procedures he performs.
When Can I Expect to See Results?*
Noticeable results will be visible immediately following your thigh lift. You’ll see improved skin quality with a smoother look and feel. Although swelling and post-surgical bruising can mask some results initially, these side effects should subside over several weeks. It may take several months for the final outcome of your procedure to fully develop.
Does It Hurt?*
Your thigh lift may be done under either general anesthesia or through intravenous sedation and local anesthetic making the procedure as comfortable as possible. After your surgery and several days afterward, it’s not uncommon to feel sore or tender. Any discomfort should steadily decrease after 5-7 days, but you may feel uncomfortable and more easily fatigued for a bit longer. Expect to take 7-10 days off work. Consult Dr. Harris beforehand if you have a more strenuous job.
Am I a Good Candidate?
If you have sagging skin or unwanted fat in the lower half of your body and would like to improve your overall body image, a thigh lift may be suitable for you. The ideal candidate for any surgical procedure is a non-smoker who is in good physical and emotional health. We require thigh lift patients to abstain from nicotine for six weeks before and after surgery. Dr. Harris will complete a full body assessment and create a treatment plan based on your body type to help you achieve your desired outcome.
