Thigh Lift

Reshaping The Thighs

A thigh lift can reshape the thighs by reducing excess skin and fat, resulting in smoother skin and better contours for the thighs and lower body.

What questions should I ask my plastic surgeon about thigh lift surgery?

Use this checklist as a guide during your thigh lift consultation:

  • Are you certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery?
  • Were you trained specifically in the field of plastic surgery?
  • How many years of plastic surgery training have you had?
  • Do you have hospital privileges to perform this procedure? If so, at which hospitals?
  • Is the office-based surgical facility accredited by a nationally- or state-recognized accrediting agency, or is it state-licensed or Medicare-certified?
  • Am I a good candidate for this procedure?
  • What will be expected of me to get the best results?
  • Where and how will you perform my procedure?
  • What surgical technique is recommended for me?
  • How long of a recovery period can I expect, and what kind of help will I need during my recovery?
  • What are the risks and complications associated with my procedure?
  • How are complications handled?
  • How can I expect my thighs to look over time?
  • What are my options if I am dissatisfied with the cosmetic outcome of my thigh lift?
  • Do you have before-and-after photos I can look at for this procedure and what results are reasonable for me?
