Who is a candidate for a thigh lift?
For many patients, significant weight loss results in skin excess that gathers on the inner thighs. This unwanted saggy skin can be removed with a crescent inner thigh lift. In some cases, liposuction alone can provide the desired results. Dr. Parker will discuss these options with you during your consultation.

Do I need a thigh lift or liposuction?
Liposuction only removes fat and helps sculpt the thighs’ shape. Even though some patients with good skin elasticity may see their skin contract somewhat, liposuction alone cannot address sagging, excess skin. These patients usually need a thigh lift to remove the excess skin and tighten the inner thighs. Liposuction will make you look thinner, but a lift will make you look younger.
How is an inner thigh lift performed?
The incisions Dr. Parker makes for an inner (medial) thigh lift are shorter than for a lateral (outer) thigh lift. In this technique, called a crescent thigh lift, Dr. Parker makes the incisions in the crease of the groin so they are easily concealed, then uses these incisions to remove excess skin.
When finished, he closes the incisions with sutures. After completing the procedure, we have the patient wear a compression garment that decreases swelling and aids in the natural shrinking and tightening of the skin.
Thigh lift procedures are performed under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation as outpatient surgery.
How long does it take to recover from a thigh lift?
Following thigh surgery, patients adequately manage pain with oral medication in most cases. Patients return to desk jobs within 1 to 2 weeks and may slowly resume exercise in several weeks.
