If you are struggling with the physical discomforts, clothing limitations, and unappealing appearance of larger thighs, it may be time to discuss your options with board-certified McLean plastic surgeon Dr. Roberta Gartside. Options like thigh lift can eliminate stubborn deposits of fat and excess skin in the upper legs, restoring a smooth, toned, and overall more comfortable look while improving physical comfort and enhancing the entire lower body.

Thigh Lift Candidates

Thigh lift is a wonderful solution for people who are uncomfortable with the look and feel of their thighs. Good candidates for this procedure should be:

  • In generally good physical health
  • Close to their goal weight
  • Committed to making healthy dietary and exercise decisions
  • Prepared for a surgical procedure
  • Willing to rest during the recovery period

Good candidates should also have realistic expectations. These can be discussed with you in greater detail during your initial consultation.

Combining Body Contouring Procedures

Thigh lift can be performed on its own to address the area between the buttocks and knees. It can also be combined with other body contouring procedures to sculpt and tone the entire frame. Commonly part of post-weight-loss and mommy makeover procedures, thigh lift allows for optimal sculpting of the lower body. During your initial consultation with Dr. Gartside it can be determined if thigh lift alone or combined with other body contouring options will best meet your aesthetic desires and physical needs.
