Thigh Lift

A thigh lift is performed to remove excess skin and fat from the upper legs. Candidates typically suffer from loose, inelastic skin after extreme weight loss due to diet, exercise or bariatric surgery. Because of this, the procedure is often combined with others such as breast lifts, facelifts, and arm lifts to retain an attractive body proportion.

In a medical thigh lift (inner thigh lift), the surgical incision is made in the inner thigh along the line where the leg meets the groin. In a lateral thigh lift (outer thigh lift), the incision is made from the groin around the back of the body, so that the buttocks are lifted along with the thigh.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Thigh Lift?

The best candidates for a thigh lift are healthy individuals who want to correct sagging skin and excess fat along the inner or outer thigh. People with medical conditions that affect healing may not be considered for this procedure.

Other lifestyle habits like drinking alcohol and smoking can also lead to slower healing and excessive bleeding. It is best for thigh lift candidates to refrain from alcohol for at least 48 hours and to quit smoking for 4 to 6 weeks before and after a thigh lift surgery.

This procedure is also the best for people with a BMI of less than 30. A stable and normal weight can greatly lower the chance of infections and impaired healing.

Before undergoing a thigh lift, candidates should be committed to a healthy lifestyle with proper nutrition and exercise.

Your Thigh Lift Consultation

A thigh lift consultation will involve a detailed conversation about your appearance goals. Dr. Nagy will discuss surgical techniques and set realistic expectations.

Be ready to provide your complete medical history, including current prescriptions and any allergies. This information allows Dr. Nagy to assess your eligibility and plan a safe procedure for you.

The Procedure

A thigh lift procedure will begin with administering general anesthesia. Once the anesthesia takes effect, Dr. Nagy will start creating incisions to lift the inner and/or outer thigh. Incision type and pattern will be discussed during the consultation.

Once the incisions have been made, excess skin will be removed with a scalpel. Excess fat will be removed via liposuction. Finally, incisions will be closed with sutures to support the newly created contours.

The Recovery Process

The full recovery process for a thigh lift procedure can take up to six weeks. On the day of your surgery, have someone drive you home and accompany you for the rest of the day.

Be sure to follow Dr. Nagy’s instructions carefully. Your thighs will be wrapped in bandages, and small drainage tubes may be placed under your skin to drain fluids while you are healing.

Wear compression garments until the fourth week, and change your bandages two to three days after the day of surgery. Expect swelling and bruising during recovery, and avoid stretching your thighs during the healing process.

In one to two weeks, drains and stitches will be removed during a follow-up office visit. After two weeks, minimal movement is encouraged to prevent blood clots. You may resume most activities one to two months after your thigh lift surgery.

I've been a patient of Dr.Nagys for almost 10 years. He definitely doesn't rush, he takes his time to talk to you and answer any questions or concerns you have. He has seen me through some challenging times of my life and has / and continues to help me. His office is always spotless, and all the ladies are very polite and also always there to answer any questions you have. The last thing i want is somwone who rushes you in and out. Dr.Nagy sits and talks to you and talks so you understand. I have recommended many people to his office and always will. Arielle has started removing a few small tattoos i have and she's very caring and kind also. You won't be disappointed.

Dr. Nagy is the best at what he does! He has a wonderful bedside manner and was extremely awesome with all of my questions. I’m a little over one week post op and already so incredibly happy with my results. The office is impeccable and beautiful. The staff is friendly and always helpful. Big shout out to Kim, she went above and beyond - from being reassuring, caring, friendly and so so patient with insane amounts of nerves and questions that I had. She’s the best! From consult to post op, they are a phenomenal team that I would highly recommend.

Office is clean and beautiful, staff is friendly and helpful, and worked hard to get my procedure approved by insurance. Dr Nagy is so knowledgeable, kind, careful, and thoughtful. He spent so much time with me. I had a fairly large cyst removed on my ring finger and was afraid I would have an awful scar and would never be able to wear my wedding rings again. Turns out, the scar is nearly invisible and my rings are on. Would 100% go back for a medical need and would refer him to anyone. I’m so thankful I found him.

Dr. Nagy and his staff are wonderful! I highly recommend him. They are all kind , compassionate and professional. After three months of dealing with an incision that refused to close on the top of my foot, I was referred to Dr. Nagy. He was able to find the problem during surgery and fix it. Now, I am able to return to the gym and the skin has completely healed! He is amazing!

Dr. Nagy and his staff are amazing. From the first time I stepped into his beautiful office, I was extremely comfortable. Everyone is friendly and professional. Dr. Nagy and the nurses are kind and compassionate. I knew I was in good hands. Four months post surgery, and I couldn’t be happier! The experience was life changing for me. I’m so glad I trusted Dr. Nagy. No regrets!
