Thigh Lift

Significant weight loss or the natural aging process may have made you self-conscious about the appearance of your thighs. Your thighs may be slimmer, but excess skin and pockets of fat may remain between your thighs, on your outer thighs, or above your knees. Dr. M. Bradley Calobrace and Dr. Chet Mays perform thigh lift surgery in Lexington and Louisville, KY to help women and men feel more confident about the appearance of their legs.

To find out more about thigh lift surgery and your body contouring options, request a consultation at CaloAesthetics Plastic Surgery Center or call (502) 899-9979 to schedule your visit.

Improvements From a Thigh Lift

Model ImageMedial thigh lifts slim and tighten the inner thighs, while lateral thigh lifts improve the appearance of the front outer portion of the upper legs. Women and men visit us in Lexington and Louisville for thigh lift surgery for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Smoothing and tightening loose skin
  • Reducing areas of fat on the inner thighs, tops of the knees, and outer thighs (saddle bags)
  • Alleviating chafing between the thighs
  • Softening cellulite

If you have excess skin on your lower body, our experienced plastic surgeons can perform your thigh lift as part of post-weight loss body contouring surgery.

About the Thigh Lift Procedure

Our surgeons may perform thigh lift surgery as an outpatient procedure in our private surgery suite or in a hospital with an overnight stay. Liposuction is used to reduce areas of residual fat. Loose skin is tightened through incisions placed in areas where the scars are least likely to be noticed such as vertically along the inner thighs or within a crease in the groin. Thigh lift surgery is best performed by experienced plastic surgeons such as Dr. Calobrace and Dr. Mays who understand proper placement of the incisions to minimize tension on the sutures.

What to Expect During Recovery

After your surgery, you will wear a compression garment to minimize swelling and support the new contour of your thighs as you heal. It's common to have bruising and swelling that may last about a month. Incisions will be closed with deep sutures that dissolve within 4 months and surface sutures that will be removed approximately 1 to 2 weeks after surgery.

Return to Work

Patients are typically ready to return to non-strenuous jobs in 2 to 3 weeks and all regular activities within 4 to 6 months.
