Medial Thigh Lift
What is it?
A medial thigh lift involves the removal of excess skin, and fat, from the inner aspect of the upper thigh and sometimes the medial knee. The length of the incision is based on how much excess skin is present. Liposuction is often performed to improve contour. This can be a very gratifying surgery for patients who wish to enjoy improved contour of the medial thighs.
Am I a candidate?
It is best for patients to be at their ideal weight (for them) and stable for at least 3 months. The ideal patient has mostly excess skin with moderate, or little fat. If there is a high ratio of fat present, it may be recommended that you undergo liposuction 3 months prior to the medial thigh lift to optimize outcomes.
Before & Afters
What is recovery like?
Recovery time varies by patient. Patients are sent home the same day of surgery with close follow up. Restrictions include 2 weeks without exertional activity (house work, yard work, lifting greater than 15 lbs). At 6 weeks you will be allowed to return to the gym, and to all other activities. All stitches will be dissolvable and supportive scar tapes will be used in the first 4 weeks. You will be followed closely for good healing and given scar therapy options as necessary. Swelling will take 3-6 months to resolve. The incision line will take a full year to turn white.
