What Is Thigh Lift Surgery?
The thigh lift operation removes the excess skin, and in some cases small amounts of fat, on the inner and outer thighs. It reduces noticeable “saddlebags” and may improve the appearance of dimpled, puckered cellulite. After surgery, the thighs look firmer, tighter, and more defined.
How Much Does a Thigh Lift Cost in San Diego, CA?
The average cost of a thigh lift starts at $20,000. As part of your consultation, we explain the costs associated with your personalized treatment and skin care plan. Multiple financing options are available, and you can apply before your consultation.
How Is a Thigh Lift Performed?
You can see the results of thigh lift surgery in our thigh lift before and after pictures. The incision for the surgery is lengthy and typically extends from above the knee to the point where the upper thigh meets the pelvic area. After making the incision, Dr. Mozaffari removes excess skin and fat before pulling the skin taut over the thigh area.
What Can I Expect During Thigh Lift Recovery?
You will need to rest at home after your thigh lift surgery. Swelling, bruising, and discomfort is normal. We will provide aftercare instructions before you leave our practice.
What Are the Different Types of Thigh Lift Surgery?
There are several types of thigh lift procedures, which differ mostly by incision type and area of focus. The inner thigh lift, for example, is best for reducing a moderate amount of excess skin and fat in the upper, inner thigh area through an incision in the groin fold.
An outer thigh lift is performed through an extended incision to target the outer portion of the thighs. Total thighplasty reshapes the front, back, inner, and outer areas of the thigh through an incision in the crease of the buttocks and the belt line. Dr. Mozaffari selects the best option based on the specific needs of the patient.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Thigh Lift?
Dr. Mozaffari meets with every candidate on a personal basis to discuss their specific body contouring needs. He asks them to identify their areas of concern and describe their ideal cosmetic outcome, before recommending a plan of treatment.
Sometimes candidates think they need thigh lift surgery, but actually can benefit from liposuction alone. Liposuction removes excess fat deposits without removing any excess skin. It is suitable for patients with good skin elasticity and skin that naturally “hugs” the thigh contours. Thigh lift may involve a liposuction/liposculpture component to reduce small amounts of excess fat, but is primarily intended to eliminate excess skin and lift/tighten the remaining skin.
