A thigh lift is a procedure which aims to improve the appearance of the thighs which may have lost their youthful shape as one ages or has significant weight loss. The surgery will remove excess skin, but if needed, additional excess fat can be removed via liposuction prior to skin removal to allow for the greatest change in contour. Depending on a patient’s needs, the incision and removed skin can be from along the inner thigh or from the upper most aspect of the thigh. Dr. Tepper will discuss the differences of each approach during your consultation. This procedure takes 2-3 hours and is performed on an outpatient basis.
