Dr. Lohner sees patients from Bryn Mawr, Main Line, Rosemont, Philadelphia, and other cities throughout Pennsylvania for thigh lift surgery.
Thigh lift is a term used to describe a number of different surgical procedures that remove excess skin, cellulite, and fat from a patient’s thigh region. Thigh lifts may be performed as part of a lower body lift or a total body lift. These procedures are often utilized when patients have lost a great amount of weight due to bariatric surgery or after undergoing liposuction in the same area.
The several types of thigh lift are used in accordance with the area being treated and the severity of the problem. An inner thigh lift, also known as a medial thigh lift, is the most common and least intensive type of lift. For this procedure, the surgeon makes an incision in the groin fold and essentially pulls up the loose skin and tissue, removing the excess and tightening the inner thigh area.
For patients who desire removal of a greater volume of tissue and skin, a vertical thighplasty may be recommended. This procedure requires an incision from the groin area to the inside of the knee, allowing the surgeon to remove excess tissue along the entire inner thigh.
If a patient’s problem area is the outer thigh, he or she may elect for an outer thigh lift, which involves an incision from the groin around the outside of the thigh to the buttocks.
All of the thigh lift procedures can help patients achieve tauter skin and a sleeker contour in their lower bodies.
