Thigh Lift

A thigh lift is a surgical procedure aimed at improving the contour and appearance of the thighs by removing excess skin and fat. Dr. Artur Fahradyan performs this highly personalized cosmetic surgery to enhance the tone and shape of your thighs.

Enhance Overall
Thigh Shape & Contours

A thigh lift focuses on enhancing the overall shape and contours of the thighs. It is typically chosen by individuals seeking to address issues such as sagging skin, excess fat, or cellulite in the thighs. This can help create smoother, toned thighs by removing surplus skin and fat, resulting in a more proportionate and youthful appearance. Thigh lifts are often considered by those who have experienced significant weight loss or have sagging skin due to natural aging.

Thigh Lift Corrects:

  • Sagging or loose skin on the thighs
  • Excess fat deposits in the thigh area
  • Uneven or dimpled skin texture (cellulite) on the thighs
  • Loss of thigh contour and definition
  • Thighs that appear disproportionate to the rest of the body

Thigh Lift Preparation Guidelines:

  • Schedule a consultation to discuss your goals and assess your candidacy.
  • Undergo a thorough medical examination to ensure you are in good health for surgery.
  • If you smoke, stop smoking several weeks before the procedure.
  • Discuss all current medications, supplements, and herbal remedies with your surgeon.
  • Maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine to optimize your physical condition.
  • Plan for someone to drive you home after the procedure and assist you during recovery.
  • Prepare your home by stocking up on comfortable clothing, bandages, and medications.
  • Adhere to any specific preoperative guidelines provided by your surgeon.

Thigh Lift Aftercare Guidelines:

  • Regularly inspect incisions for signs of infection, unusual swelling, or discharge.
  • Wear prescribed compression garments to minimize swelling and support healing.
  • Take prescribed pain medications as instructed by your surgeon to manage discomfort.
  • Follow the surgeon’s recommendations regarding physical activity limitations.
  • Keep the incision sites clean and dry, and apply any recommended topical treatments.
  • Stay well-hydrated and consume a balanced diet rich in nutrients.
  • Attend all scheduled follow-up appointments with your surgeon.
  • Follow scar care instructions, including using scar creams or silicone sheets.
  • Protect incisions from direct sunlight and UV radiation to prevent the darkening of scars.

Thigh Lift FAQs

How does thigh lift work?

A thigh lift reshapes and contours the thighs by removing excess skin and fat. Dr. Fahradyan makes precise incisions in areas strategically hidden, often within the natural creases of the thighs or along the groin. Through these incisions, he may excise excess skin and fat, following which liposuction is used to eliminate unwanted fat deposits and further sculpt the thighs. The remaining skin is pulled upward and tightened to create a smoother contour.

How long is the recovery period after a thigh lift?

Recovery times can vary but may range from two to six weeks. Patients can return to light activities within a few weeks but should avoid strenuous exercise for a more extended period.

Are the results of a thigh lift permanent?

While a thigh lift provides long-lasting results, it does not stop the natural aging process. Over time, factors like aging and weight fluctuations can affect the appearance of the thighs.

Will I have visible scars after a thigh lift?

There will be scars, but they are typically strategically placed to be concealed by clothing. With time and proper care, these scars fade and become less noticeable.

When can I expect to see the final results of my thigh lift?

The final results may take several months to fully develop as the swelling subsides and the scars mature. Patience is essential during the recovery process.
