Thigh Lift

Your thighs can develop sagging skin with or without significant weight loss. Some even have fullness due to excess fatty deposits. As you age, your skin loses elasticity and many people feel self conscious about their overall appearance. A thigh lift can dramatically enhance the appearance of your legs, eliminating excess skin and improving the contour of the thighs. Patients in and around Bellevue and Kirkland, WA have enjoyed the results Dr. Bryan McIntosh can produce with a thigh lift surgery.

How is a Thigh Lift Performed?

Depending on how severe the skin excess is, the surgical treatment plan will be tailored to your specific needs and goals. Dr. McIntosh can place an incision in the groin crease to pull excess skin upward, or the incision can also extend down the inner thigh to the knee in order to tighten the thigh skin circumferentially as well. Often liposuction will also be needed to best contour the thighs. The incisions are closed with dissolving sutures under the skin. The surgery takes 3 to 4 hours, and the recovery lasts 1 to 2 weeks. Patients will be bathing suit ready and have their confidence back after this procedure.
