What is a thigh lift?

What should I expect during my consultation?

The goal of the consultation is to determine if a thigh lift is the right choice for you. During your consultation, your doctor will explain the full procedure to you and will ask you several questions including:

  • Why do you want a thigh lift?
  • What are your expectations for the procedure?
  • What is your desired outcome?
  • Do you have any drug allergies?
  • What previous medical treatments have you received?
  • Have you had any previous surgeries? If so, what were they?

In addition to asking these questions, Dr. Johnson will use your consultation to evaluate your general health status and any pre-existing health conditions or risk factors you may have, discuss your thigh lift options, take photographs for your medical record, recommend a course of treatment, discuss likely outcomes of a thigh lift and any risks or potential complications, and answer your questions.

What should I expect before my thigh lift?

Before your thigh lift, you may be asked to get lab testing or a medical evaluation, take certain medications or adjust your current medications, stop smoking, and avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements that may increase bleeding.

We will also give you special instructions about what to do the night before and morning of your surgery and regarding your post-operative care and follow-up appointments.

What will happen during my thigh lift?

First, you’ll be administered anesthesia. Dr. Johnson will recommend the anesthesia option that is best for you. Then, you’ll go to sleep while Dr. Johnson and well-trained staff perform the thigh lift. The exact procedure will vary depending on your unique needs and desired outcomes. Dr. Johnson can walk you through every step of the procedure during your consultation.

What should I expect after my thigh lift?

Dr. Johnson will give you instructions regarding your post-operative care. Following these instructions is absolutely vital for the success of your surgery. These instructions will include ensuring that your surgical incisions are not subjected to excessive force, abrasion, or motion during your recovery. Dr. Johnson will also instruct you regarding the proper care of the surgical site, the use of medications to aid healing and reduce the potential for infection, and your overall follow-up care.

What will my results be like?

The results of your thigh lift will be visible almost immediately and will continue to improve for several months as you heal. You can expect to see improved skin tightening following your thigh lift. When you trust the skilled, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Jason D.
