Thigh lift in Dallas is typically performed to remove excess skin and fat and reshape the thighs to provide a smoother and slimmer body contour. A thigh lift or thighplasty aims to restructure and tighten the underlying thigh tissue, which can also solve any cellulite issues or dimpling of the skin surface. Patients looking to achieve firmer, better-proportioned thighs often find that a thigh lift is an excellent and effective body contouring procedure. A thigh lift is often performed with liposuction and in combination with skin excision. Dr. Azouz can also improve the patient’s skin laxity by performing abdominoplasty or a posterior body lift. Request your appointment with Dr. Azouz by calling (972) 702-8888.
Am I candidate for a Thigh lift?
Some patients have an abnormal contour to their legs because of lipodystrophy and loose skin secondary to weight loss. Others have conditions such as lipedema or lymphedema. Depending on the patient’s need, Dr. Azouz can perform multiple liposuction modalities, including SAFE liposuction, power-assisted liposuction, and high definition liposuction to remove fat and tighten the skin.

Patients considering a thigh lift can benefit from:
- Removing excess skin after weight loss.

What to Expect During Your Thigh Lift in Dallas
The extent and technique of your thigh lift procedure depend on your desired changes and what Dr. Azouz deems appropriate. During a thigh lift procedure, Dr. Azouz often creates minimalistic incisions depending on the area of correction and preference. In any case, he will create incision(s) that will be virtually unnoticeable after recovery, lining up with your natural body contour.
Results are visible instantly after your procedure but may take a few months to fully improve. Follow-up appointments will be scheduled to make sure you are satisfied with your results and that you’re healing properly.
Anesthesia for Thigh lift
Thigh lifts are often performed under local anesthesia with sedation, allowing patients to be comfortable throughout the procedure.
Thigh lift recovery
After surgery, it is normal to have some discomfort (swelling and brucing) for the first week. After the first week, patients will be able to walk. Recovery time will vary for each patient, and limitations will be discussed during your consultation. It’s important to follow Dr. Azouz’s specific aftercare instructions for optimal recovery.
Combination of a Thigh lift with other plastic surgeries
Thigh lift surgery can be combined with other plastic and cosmetic surgeries. Here are a few of the most popular combination surgeries with a thigh lift.
- Mini breast lift
- Eyelid surgery
If you are interested in combining a plastic surgery procedure with your thigh lift, book a consultation with Dr. Azouz to discuss all of your surgical options.
Thigh lift cost
The cost of a thigh lift is dependent on the areas which need to be treated and the amount of liposuction that is to be performed. Patient factors such as smoking status, overall health, and history of previous surgery are also taken into account when determining cost. A thigh lift is a cosmetic procedure and is not usually covered by insurance. Dr. Azouz will discuss financing options available for his patients.
