Why Choose a Thigh Lift?

A thigh lift is done to reduce cellulite and sagging, crepey, wrinkled skin of the thighs, and to provide a firmer appearance with an improved contour. Many patients choose a thigh lift after their thighs change due to age, pregnancy, or weight loss. 

Key Benefits of a Thigh Lift

  • A tighter, smoother, more contoured appearance
  • Decreased appearance of cellulite
  • Improved comfort and hygiene
  • More comfort during exercise
  • Reduced skin irritation and rashes
  • Enhanced confidence

What Happens During the

Thigh Lift Procedure?

A thigh lift at Chicago's Beautify at AMS is approached differently. In many cases, our plastic surgeons begin with hi-definition liposuction to remove excess fat, reduce the volume of the thighs, and create a more sculpted, contoured, and balanced shape. Following the fat removal procedure, we employ internal radiofrequency heating to “shrink wrap” the skin and improve the overall texture of the treated area.

Any loose skin is surgically removed, and in some instances only a small, hidden incision—tucked in the crease of the groin and buttock roll—is necessary to tighten and lift the middle thigh and buttock crease. Using this spiral lift technique, our team provides long-term lifting, visible skin tightening, and wrinkle and cellulite reduction in a single treatment.

In the case of more significant skin sagging, a lengthier incision (down the inner thigh or around the upper thigh) may be necessary. However, meticulous suturing, as well as a combination of fat removal and skin tightening procedures, can give the leg a newfound contour while keeping scarring to a minimum. Our plastic surgeons do everything in their power to avoid long incisions.

What Results to Expect

Early results from a thigh lift are visible within the first few weeks following the procedure, with results looking better and better each day. Final results appear at approximately six months, and your results will be maintained and long-lasting if you lead a healthy lifestyle.

Continuing Results After Surgery

To ensure continued improvement after a thigh lift, patients typically follow a custom-tailored annual maintenance plan. This plan includes external, non-surgical radiofrequency and ultrasound skin tightening treatments, as well as regular Sculptra® injections in order to maintain excellent collagen production.
