What Is A Thigh Lift?

When diet and exercise alone cannot address excess sagging skin, a thigh lift can reshape and redefine the upper leg contour.  As a Fellowship-trained cosmetic plastic and reconstructive surgeon in Denver, CO, Dr. Barker offers thigh lift surgery (thighplasty) at Peak Plastic Surgery Center to reveal a more contoured, tighter look. Thigh lift surgery has increased in popularity because it helps patients to once again enjoy wearing all their favorite shorts, skirts, and swimwear.

How Are Thigh Lifts Performed?

For a thigh lift, general anesthesia is used at an accredited surgical center under the care of highly trained anesthesiologists. Incisions are made in the targeted areas of the thighs with careful attention to minimizing postoperative scarring. 

VASER liposuction may also be included as a component of the procedure if excess pockets of fat are creating contour bulges. This surgery at Peak Plastic Surgery Center reshapes and smooths the thighs for a tighter, more toned appearance.

What Results Can I Expect From A Thigh Lift?

After completion of thigh lift surgery, you will be required to wear a compression garment to help with swelling and overall healing.  Dr. Barker and his staff will provide you with a comprehensive written postoperative guide to ensure you are well informed and comfortable.  After the healing process has been completed, you will enjoy a newly sculpted physique that will help boost your confidence and secure a more positive self-image.

Types of Thigh Lifts

Medial Thigh Lift

A medial thigh lift is among the most popular body sculpting options. It helps to combat drooping skin in the inner thighs through an incision created in the groin area that may stretch down to the upper knee or to the back of the lower thighs.

Outer (Bilateral) Thigh Lift

An outer thigh lift is performed to contour the sides of the legs, reducing “saddlebags”. The incision is made in the groin area, extending outward toward the hips and lower back. VASER liposuction may be employed to reduce stubborn fat in the region.

Vertical Thigh Lift

Some patients require reshaping and trimming in all areas of the thighs. A vertical thigh lift uses a larger incision that extends down to the knees. While scarring may be more significant with this option, many patients feel it is worth it due to the more youthful, streamlined look that can be achieved.

Lift with VASER Liposuction

VASER liposuction is a powerful tool for removing unwanted pockets of stubborn, localized fat. It can be combined with any type of thigh lift to further sculpt and define the upper legs. The fat can be discarded or it can be saved for a future fat transfer procedure to reshape the breasts, buttocks, or another region of the physique.
