Thigh lift is a plastic surgery procedure that reshapes and contours the thighs by removing excess fat and skin. This procedure is often performed after significant weight loss and serves to re-contour the thighs. This area of the body can be especially resistant to diet and exercise, leaving localized pockets of fat that refuse to budge.
The surgery is best performed on people who are close to their ideal weight. The result of a thigh lift is smaller, firmer thighs, but it is not a substitute for weight loss.
We believe you need to be well informed about thigh lift surgery so that you can make an informed decision about your procedure and your surgeon. This includes the processes of preparing for the surgery and the recovery period. One of our surgeons will meet with you about your concerns and personal goals. They will examine you and tell you what they can accomplish for you. They will also advise you what the thigh lift will involve in terms specific to your case.
Choosing a surgeon is an intensely personal decision. We encourage you to ask questions of our surgeons and our team. We want you to feel comfortable with us and your decision to have surgery at The Waldorf Center.
Your surgeon will customize your surgical plan based on your anatomy and the results you want. Incisions are usually made in the groin area where they can remain hidden. In more extensive cases, an incision might be necessary in a more visible part of the thigh. If your surgeon feels this is necessary to provide you with your desired outcome, they will let you know before your surgery. They will always do their best to keep scarring to a minimum.
After the incisions are made, liposuction may be performed to suction out excess fatty tissue from the inner and/or outer thighs. Excess skin is then removed, and the incisions are sutured. The surgery is usually performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia in our accredited surgery center.
The experienced surgeons at The Waldorf Center for Plastic Surgery are committed to educating patients and providing them with high-quality, ethical care. We believe that cosmetic surgery is as much an art as it is a science.Learn More
You should take two weeks off from work after your surgery and restrict your activity for six to eight weeks. The recovery period involves some bruising, soreness, and swelling. You can take pain medication to manage any discomfort. Some mild residual swelling will remain for a few weeks to months.*
You will be fitted with a compression garment for a period of weeks, intended to aid in swelling reduction and promote faster healing.
If your sutures were not dissolvable, the clinical staff will remove them during a post-surgical examination and will monitor your progress carefully to make sure you are healing properly.
I was displeased with my breast size. We did the 3D Vectra imaging and Dr. Waldorf concluded that 220 or 255cc silicone implants would give me my desired results. Everything went extremely smoothly on the day of my surgery ... I was back to normal activity within 1-2 weeks. Overall it was an excellent experience!Learn More
From the very first visit, all my experiences with Dr. Waldorf have been great. I was always self-conscious of my small chest but never as much as after having 2 kids & nursing each of them for 1 year. I had no cleavage at all & finding a swimsuit that could conceal this was very difficult. I went from 32A to 32C which fits my body perfectly & looks very natural. The surgery & my recovery went very smooth & I'm very happy with the result.Learn More
