Thigh Lift in Dallas, TX


Loose skin on the thighs can develop due to aging and weight loss. Diet and exercise are often not enough to eliminate thigh skin that is permanently overstretched or damaged.

What Is a Thigh Lift?

Thigh lift surgery (thighplasty) is a procedure where the contour of the thigh, specifically the inner thigh, is tightened and lifted to achieve a more smooth and youthful appearance.

What Can Be Achieved With a Thigh Lift?


Slimmer Thighs


Many patients are left with sagging thigh skin after significant weight loss or as they've aged.

Thigh lift surgery removes excess skin and fat from the thighs to achieve a slimmer, more attractive thigh appearance.

Increased Comfort


Patients who have excess skin on their thighs often report that it is highly uncomfortable when their thighs rub against each other.

A thigh lift removes excess skin from the thighs so patients can enjoy walking and other daily activities without chafing and pain.

Increased Confidence


Sagging skin, especially on the thighs, can be a source of embarrassment for many individuals.

Thighplasty eliminates excess skin and fat to improve the appearance of the thighs. This often dramatically increases patient confidence.

What Are My Thigh Lift Options in Dallas, TX?


During your consultation with Dr. Morales, he will discuss your needs and goals for the procedure to create a personalized surgical plan.

Anesthesia

What Kind of Anesthesia Is Used for a Thigh Lift?

Thigh lift surgery is most commonly performed using general anesthesia or IV sedation to ensure a painless procedure. Since you will be put to sleep, please plan to bring a responsible adult to the surgical appointment to drive you home.

Where Are Thigh Lift Incisions Made?

During thigh lift surgery, a limited transverse incision is made at the groin and leg crease of the thigh. If more skin needs to be redraped, the incision will extend further along the inside of the inner thigh.

Procedure

How Is a Thigh Lift Performed?

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


Recovery

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.


Results

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.

Maintenance

How Can I Maintain My Thigh Lift Results?

Thigh lift surgery results are intended to be long lasting, and most patients will not need their procedure redone. However, natural aging and weight fluctuations can reverse your results.

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