Thigh lift surgery in Dallas is a transformative procedure designed not only to remove excess skin and fat but also to reshape the thighs, providing a smoother and slimmer body contour. This intricate procedure, also known as thighplasty, goes beyond aesthetics, aiming to restructure and tighten the underlying thigh tissue. In addition to achieving a firmer look, a thigh lift can effectively address cellulite issues and skin dimpling, enhancing both form and function. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Azouz, a leading expert in plastic surgery, employs a comprehensive approach, often combining thigh lifts with liposuction and skin excision. Moreover, he specializes in enhancing saggy skin through procedures such as abdominoplasty or a posterior body lift.

Am I a Candidate for a Thigh Lift?

Individuals with abnormal leg contours due to stubborn fat, or lipodystrophy, saggy loose skin from weight loss, or conditions like lipedema or lymphedema may find a solution in a thigh lift. Dallas plastic surgeon Dr. Azouz tailors his approach to each patient’s needs, utilizing multiple liposuction modalities, including SAFE liposuction, power-assisted liposuction, and high-definition liposuction. These techniques not only remove excess fat but also tighten the skin, ensuring optimal results.

A thighplasty can help with:

Can a thigh lift be scarless?

The extent and technique of your thigh lift procedure depend on your unique goals. Dr. Azouz specializes in creating minimalistic incisions, considering the area of correction and patient preference. The incisions for a thighplasty can vary depending on the specific techniques used.

  • Inner thigh lift: An incision is made in the groin that may continue down the inner thigh.
  • Full thigh lift: The incision begins in the groin and extends down the inner and outer thighs, frequently reaching the knees. Dr. Azouz often avoids this approach and instead uses a camouflage technique to result in minimal scars from a thigh lift.
  • Mini thigh lift: This is a less invasive method for removing small amounts of extra skin, requiring only a groin incision.

How is a thigh lift performed?

Before addressing the saggy skin, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Azouz may use liposuction to remove stubborn fat. Dr. Azouz will then delicately remove the redundant skin while maintaining blood flow and creating a natural appearance. The remaining skin is then tightened as the incision is closed to achieve a smoother contour. While results are visible instantly, the full recovery may take a few months. During your follow-up appointments, Dr. Azouz will monitor your progress to ensure optimal healing and natural results.

Can a thigh lift be performed through a tummy tuck?

Saggy skin of the thighs can be pulled up by a tummy tuck or through a buttock lift. Tightening thigh skin with a tummy tuck or buttock lift can result in a more mild recovery with the same results, compared to a traditional thigh lift. It can be an excellent option for patients who need both a thigh lift, and tummy tuck or body lift, and it can often avoid a traditional thigh lift in the future.

What is the anesthesia for a thigh lift?

Thigh lifts are often performed under local anesthesia with sedation, ensuring your comfort throughout the procedure. Dallas board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Azouz limits the use of general anesthesia to avoid postoperative nausea and ensure a seamless recovery.

What is the recovery from a thighplasty?

After surgery, it’s normal to experience some discomfort, swelling, and bruising for the first week. Patients are placed in compression garments to help with skin retraction and decrease bruising. Afterward, patients can gradually resume walking. Recovery times vary, with specific limitations discussed during your consultation. During your routine follow-up appointments, Dr. Azouz will monitor your recovery and give personalized recommendations to ensure optimal recovery for natural results.

What surgeries can be combined with a thigh lift?

Thigh lift surgery seamlessly combines with various plastic and cosmetic surgeries, offering a holistic enhancement. Popular combination surgeries include liposuction, mini breast lift, facelift, and eyelid surgery. To explore these options, book a consultation with Dr. Azouz.

Thigh Lift Cost

The cost of a thigh lift depends on the treated areas, the extent of liposuction, and individual factors like smoking status and overall health. As a cosmetic procedure, thigh lifts are typically not covered by insurance. Dr. Azouz discusses financing options during consultations, ensuring accessibility for his patients.

Thigh Lift Results

Almost immediately after a thigh lift, patients witness enhanced skin quality and improved thigh shape. Many patients feel much more confident in showing off their legs and comfortably wearing clothing they love.
