Thigh Lift

Thigh Lift surgery is intended to improve the contour of the upper leg or thigh. We typically use a combination of liposuction and skin removal. The resulting incision runs down the inside of the upper leg in a well hidden area. This surgery works particularly well on patients who have lost a large amount of weight, where it can decrease leg circumference and improve overall shape.

Anesthesia: General
Operative Time: 2-3 hours
Incisions: Vertical down inner thigh
Drains: None
Recovery Timeline:

  • 1 week – Suture removal; Typical time off work
  • 3 weeks – Resume low-impact exercise
  • 6 weeks – Resume all exercise without restrictions
  • 3 months – Majority of swelling gone and wounds 90% strong
  • 1 year – Final healing
*Please note that each patient and case is unique. Nothing in surgery is a guarantee. Please talk with Dr. Street more in person about your individualized surgical plan. All general anesthesia is performed by a board-certified anesthesiologist.
