Thigh Lift

Thighplasty

A thigh lift, also known as thighplasty, 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?
