After incisions are made, Dr. Morales will tighten and remove excess skin and fat on the thigh. Incisions are then closed.
What to Expect After Thigh Lift Surgery
What Is the Recovery Time for a Thigh Lift?
Immediately following your thigh lift surgery, you will need to limit your activity and rest with a lower body compression girdle or garment to reduce swelling.
Patients can typically return to work in 7 days. Exercise and strenuous activity should be avoided for three to four weeks.
When Will I See My Thigh Lift Results?Thigh lift results are visible immediately. However, you will need to wait several weeks for bruising and swelling to subside to fully experience your results.
How Can I Maintain My Thigh Lift Results?

To maintain your thigh lift results, we recommend leading a healthy lifestyle with a nutritious diet and regular exercise.
