For patients with significant skin sagging in the inner or outer thigh, a Thighplasty (commonly referred to as a Thigh Lift) can provide surgical skin removal and lifting, thereby reducing any skin laxity. Dr. Bayran and his trusted plastic surgeons do everything within their power to avoid long, unsightly incisions and use a multi-modality approach to Thigh Lifts. In many cases, our board-certified plastic surgeons begin with Hi-Definition Liposuction to remove excess fat, reduce the volume of the thighs, and create a more sculpted, contoured and balanced shape. Following the fat removal procedure, we employ internal radiofrequency (RF) heating to ‘shrink wrap’ the skin and improve the overall texture of the treated area.
At this point, one of Beautify’s skilled surgeons intervenes to surgically remove any loose skin. In some instances, only a small, hidden incision, tucked in the crease of the groin and buttock roll, is necessary to tighten and lift the middle thigh and buttock crease. Using this spiral lift technique, our team provides long-term lifting, visible skin tightening, and wrinkle and cellulite reduction in a single treatment. In the case of more significant skin sagging, a more lengthy incision down the inner thigh or around the upper thigh may be necessary. However, meticulous suturing, as well as a combination of fat removal and skin tightening procedures, can give the leg a newfound contour while keeping scarring to a minimum.
To ensure continued improvement after surgery, our Thigh Lift patients typically follow a custom-tailored annual maintenance plan. This plan includes external, nonsurgical RF and ultrasound skin tightening treatments as well as regular Sculptra injections in order to maintain excellent collagen production.
