Thigh Lift Plastic Surgery
by F. Ryan Wermeling, MD
Thigh lift surgery improves the shape of the upper legs by removing extra skin and fat of the inner thighs.
Extra tissue in this area can be the result of a large amount of weight loss or natural aging. Depending on the amount of skin to be removed, the incision can be placed in the groin, but often the best results require an incision on the inside of the thigh.
Before surgery, patients should be at a stable weight. Most patients can go home the same day.
