Thigh Lift Surgery

Sometimes diet and exercise are simply not enough to eliminate saddlebags, sagging skin, and other concerns our patients have about their thighs. Thigh lifts are an effective option to reshape the inner and outer thighs.

After evaluating your body and discussing your objectives, your UT Southwestern Medical Center plastic surgeon may suggest performing procedures such as liposuction and/or a body lift along with a thigh lift to achieve a very natural look. After surgery, you can expect to see immediate results including improved skin quality and appearance, along with thighs that are in proportion with your body.

Because our plastic surgeons combine extensive experience with surgical innovations, including combining various types of body-contouring procedures, we use the smallest incisions possible to remove excess fat and skin. With our research on how the body produces fat and heals, our surgeons offer long-term results that are safe and effective for medial (inner) and outer thigh lifts.

The results last for a lifetime, but the shape of a person’s thighs will change over time. It is very important to maintain a healthy weight.
