What is a Thigh Lift?

A Thigh Lift in New York City, or Thighplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to reshape and contour the thighs. It involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the inner and outer thighs, resulting in a smoother, firmer, and more toned appearance with that ever-desired and much-talked-about thigh gap.

Thigh Lifts can address concerns such as loose and sagging skin, excess fat deposits, and poor thigh contour due to aging, weight loss, or genetic factors. The procedure can help improve the overall proportions of the thighs, enhance body confidence, and restore a more youthful silhouette.

Four main types of Thigh Lifts are usually offered and detailed as follows:

Medial Thigh Lift

Also known as an inner thigh lift, is the most common form of this cosmetic surgery and uses a surgical incision made in the inner thigh along the line where the leg meets the groin.

Bilateral Thigh Lift

An outer thigh lift requires an incision to be made from the groin around the back of the body so that the buttocks are lifted along with the thigh.

Vertical Thigh Lift

If you’re looking to address a lot of excess skin in all areas of your thighs, you may consider a vertical thigh lift. It requires larger incisions that begin at your groin and extend down to your knees.

Mini Thigh Lift

This procedure requires fewer incisions than other types of thigh lifts, only involving an incision in your groin area. It works well if you want to focus on the upper-inner part of your thigh only.

What are the benefits of a Thigh Lift?

A Thigh Lift in New York offers several benefits to individuals who are looking to improve the appearance of their thighs. These benefits include:

  • Achieving a much desired “thigh gap”
  • Better clothing fit
  • Enhanced thigh contour
  • Improved body proportions
  • Increased self-confidence
  • Long-lasting results

Who Are The Best Candidates For A Thigh Lift?

Thigh Lift first steps

The first step is to simply schedule a consultation with Dr. Nikfarjam and Dr. Goulart, who will provide a comprehensive assessment of your specific needs and goals. During the consultation, our surgeons will carefully evaluate your thigh area and explain the procedure. He will work closely with you to develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your unique thigh anatomy and aesthetic goals.

What to expect on the day of Thigh Lift surgery

On the day of your Thigh Lift surgery at New, You Plastic Surgery, Dr. Nikfarjam and Dr. Goulart will place you under general anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure and may employ various surgical techniques to achieve the best possible results.

During the Thigh Lift surgery, we focuses on eliminating excess fat and sagging skin from the thigh area. The choice of technique and incision placement will be determined by the areas of your thighs that require reshaping and would have generally been discussed during your consultation.

 The procedure involves the removal of excess skin, followed by lifting and suturing of the remaining skin and tissue. A light dressing will be applied to your thighs, and you may also be fitted with a soft compression garment to minimize swelling. In some cases, liposuction may be combined with the thigh lift to remove excess fat.

 While the duration of the procedure may vary for each patient, on average, thigh lifts typically take approximately two to three hours to complete.

Thigh Lift Recovery

When finished, you will be closely monitored in a recovery area and provided with detailed post-operative instructions for a smooth recovery. It is recommended to bring a family or friend to drive you home as you might have some lingering effects from the sedation.

 During the recovery period following your Thigh Lift surgery, it is common to experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort.

 Dr. Nikfarjam and Dr. Goulart will provide specific post-operative instructions to promote healing and minimize complications. It is important to rest and avoid strenuous activities for several weeks. Wearing a compression garment can help reduce swelling. With proper care and adherence to instructions, you can expect a smoother recovery and enjoy the benefits of a more contoured thigh appearance.
