Thigh Lift Surgery in New York City for Shapelier Legs

A thigh lift, also known as thighplasty, can improve the tone and contour of your legs. It is a popular procedure for men and women who have lost weight and have excess loose, sagging skin. However, many people who troubled by the effects of aging on their lower bodies may also see great results with thigh lift surgery. At our New York City practice, Dr. Matthew Schulman performs thighplasty to help patients:

  • Improve loose skin on the inner and outer thigh
  • Improve sagging skin on the inner and outer thighs
  • Reduce contour irregularities

Thigh Lift Consultation

During your consultation with Dr. Schulman at our New York City practice, he will discuss all aspects of thigh lift surgery, including options for minimally invasive and short-scar techniques. He will take time to answer all your questions to be certain you are fully informed and know what to expect from the procedure and recovery process.

The Thighplasty Procedure

First, Dr. Schulman performs liposuction as necessary, to remove unwanted deposits of fat. Next, an incision is made in the crease of the groin. The incision may extend along the crease of the buttock. Individuals with severe skin excess may require an incision located along the inner aspect of the inner thigh. During the thigh lift, Dr. Schulman removes surplus skin from the upper thigh. Then, Dr. Schulman lifts and reshapes the remaining skin to create a smooth contour.

After your thigh lift procedure, you will return home the same day. The results of thighplasty will be noticeable immediately and will continue to improve over the following weeks.
