For women and men who need help reducing the size of the inner or outer thighs, a thigh lift can benefit body image and comfort wearing clothes. This procedure involves removing excess skin to make the body more proportional, resulting in thighs that are firmer and more youthful with smoother skin. If you have experienced trouble reducing excess fat and sagging skin with diet and exercise, a thigh lift can offer considerable help.
Serving the Nashville and Franklin areas, Mayo-Clinic trained, board-certified Nashville plastic surgeon Chad Robbins, M.D., F.A.C.S., will consult with you to determine your vision and goals for the procedure. Using a general or local anesthesia, Dr. Robbins will make an incision at the groin and remove excess skin and fat. Depending on the needs of the patient, Dr. Robbins may make a larger incision from the groin to the hip.
Scarring is minimal, and a thigh lift will reshape and tighten loose skin to deliver a more pleasing, proportional shape. With your desired aesthetic in mind, Dr. Robbins will work with you to help you achieve your best self. To find out how a thigh lift can change your shape, see the before and after photos below:
