Thigh Lift Overview
A thigh lift (thighplasty) can remove skin and tissue from the upper, inner, and outer thigh areas to give you a smoother, more youthful look. With a thigh lift, you can achieve what spot training at the gym sometimes can’t fix due to genetics or other reasons. Plastic surgeon, Dr. Robert Najera in Frisco, TX will re-contour the skin and tissue of the thighs to improve the muscle tone and smooth the skin of the thigh to improve the appearance of skin irregularities. Sometimes, thigh lifts can be combined with other cosmetic options, such as a lower body lift, which will address problem areas on the hips and buttocks, too.
"Gifted Dr. Najera and his stellar team! - Having been inspired by the extensive and high quality online reviews of Dr. Najera's work, I decided to reach out to his team from my base in London, UK, and can honestly say that from the very outset, I have received nothing but the highest level of care and professionalism from the doctor and his staff. Needless to say, it was a substantial emotional and financial investment for me to..."- S.N. / RealSelf / Oct 15, 2018
"This is the place you need to go to. From the start with my pre-op with Jessica Benenate I felt at ease talking with her. They are all VERY informative and so friendly and personable. My surgeon, Dr. Najera, is one of the kindest people I have ever met. He is so professional and did an excellent job going above and beyond my expectations. I can't stress enough how important it is to have a board certified surgeon who knows what they are doing AND cares about their patient's final outcome. This is what you get with Dr. Najera. I am so lucky I chose the best place to get my surgery done."- L.R. / Google / Jan 17, 2019
"I couldn't be happier with my results from Dr. Najera! I was recommended to him by my mother who is the queen of research. And she was right about choosing him. The staff was always sweet and helpful. I'm sure I annoyed them with questions constantly, but they never made me feel anything but comfortable and cared about. Amber and Jessica were awesome. Dr. Najera always has a really positive attitude and is honest and clear about what to expect. He gave me exactly what I wanted and I am so thankful for him and his staff really listening to my wishes. Whenever it came to anything beauty on myself, I was never 100% pleased with the results. With Dr. Najera, I truly was. I would recommend him and go back in the future!"- K.M. / Google / Jan 11, 2019
"Excellent if I could give more than 5 stars I would. Honestly one of the best experience ever from staff to doctor 5 ??."- Y.G. / Google / Jan 09, 2019
"I can't say enough great things about Najera Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery. The facility is beautiful, and every member of the staff that I have encountered so far has been super friendly and helpful. If you are seeking some kind of cosmetic injectables, do yourself a favor and make an appointment with Linda asap! I tend to be a 'Nervous Nelly' and can't help but ask millions of questions, but she was patient, friendly, and knowledgeable. Above all else, your comfort and complete satisfaction is her priority!!!"- A.C. / Yelp / Dec 14, 2018
Best Candidates for Thigh Lift
A thigh lift is the best choice for patients whose have loose or sagging skin caused by weight loss or aging. Patients should be at or near their goal weight and they should keep a stable weight after the procedure for best results. A thighplasty will tighten skin in the thigh area, but does not remove fat. Some patients may need a combined procedure that includes the surgical lift and removal of skin, as well as liposuction to remove unwanted pockets of fat.
What To Expect with Thigh Lift
Dr. Najera will choose an incision point based on the area of the thigh that is being treated, but usually an inconspicuous area in the groin is the starting point. First, the excess skin and tissue will be removed. Next, a lift is performed by tightening and smoothing the remaining tissue and muscle. To improve the overall appearance of the lower body, some patients may want to add a butt lift for more natural and even results. Once you have recovered, cardio and strength training will help maintain and enhance your newly shaped thighs.
Thigh Lift During/After Surgery
Thighplasty is performed under general anesthesia and usually takes 2-3 hours. It is usually an outpatient procedure and the patient can leave the same day to complete their recovery at home. Swelling, bruising, and some pain are normal for 1-2 weeks after the surgery. Patients are usually allowed to begin limited movement after 2 weeks and more strenuous activity can be done 6-8 weeks after surgery. Final results are usually visible after 3 months and will be permanent if the patient’s weight remains stable. There will be scars from the incisions, but they will fade if the patient follows Dr. Najera’s scar care instructions.
Thigh Lift Expected Cost
A typical thigh lift costs $7,500 to $11,000. The total cost will be higher if other surgeries are performed at the same time as the thigh lift.
