Many of our patients travel a great distance to have surgery with Dr. Schulman, so we understand that it may not be possible for you to come to our office for your initial consultation.
A thigh lift will remove the excess skin of the inner thighs, resulting in a tighter and smooth appearance. Dr. Matthew Schulman routine performs thigh lift and thighplasty in our New York City plastic surgery practice.
Thigh Lift Consultation
During your consultation with Dr. Schulman, he will discuss all aspects of thigh lift surgery, including options for minimally invasive and short-scar techniques. He will be able to show you the specific skin that can be removed with the surgery and where the resulting scars will be. 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
The specific technique for your thigh lift will depend on exactly where your unwanted skin in, and the amount of that skin. If you have skin isolated to the upper part of the inner thighs, Dr. Schulman is likely able to remove the skin using only an incision hidden within the groin crease. If you have a more significant amount of loose skin, or excess skin that extends down towards the knees, you will likely require an additional incision that goes down the inner part of the inner leg. Regardless of the specific incisions, your thigh lift procedure will be performed in the safety of our certified and accredited office operating facility. Your anesthesia will be administered and monitored by our Board Certified Anesthesiologist.
First, Dr. Schulman is likely to perform liposuction to remove unwanted deposits of fat. Next, an incision is made in the crease of the groin and also in the inner part of the thighs. The excess skin is carefully removed and the skin is re-draped more tightly and closed with stitches. The result is a tighter, lifted, and smoother legs.
After the appropriate time in our operating room, you will be allowed to go home with your surgical escort. You will then follow the recovery protocol that will be detailed to you, as you begin to resume normal daily activities.
Meet Dr. Schulman – Thigh Lift New York City
“Loose skin on your inner thighs can be very troubling for you. Unfortunately, liposuction isn’t going to help this since the issue is skin, not fat. In fact, liposuction may even make the skin appear worse. I will use special techniques to remove the skin and keep the scar as hidden as possible. Sometimes I can even combine your thigh lift with other procedures if needed.”
