Thigh lift

This surgery improves the shape of the upper legs by removing extra skin and fat. It may involve either liposuction alone or in combination with removal of extra skin and soft tissue.

Before surgery, patients should be at a stable weight. Incisions may be located in the groin or inside the thigh. Some surgeons may leave temporary drains depending on the amount of tissue removed. Most patients get to go home the day of surgery.
