Phoenix Thigh Lift Surgery

Many individuals dislike the way their thighs look. From excessive wrinkles to cellulite to “saddlebags”, the thighs are an area that tend to accumulate a lot of areas of concern. If your thighs bother you, our Phoenix thigh lift surgery can improve many unwanted issues. 

What a thigh lift can accomplish

A thigh lift can make a massive difference for those who have sagging skin on their thighs, as well as crepe-like or dimpled skin, cellulite, wrinkling, or saddlebags. The procedure lifts and tightens the skin, greatly improving these areas. The result is beautiful-looking thighs and better confidence.

What causes loose skin on the thighs?

Many people who see excess loose skin develop on their thighs are those who have lost a significant amount of weight, or those whose bodies changed quite a bit during pregnancy. Sometimes loose or sagging skin of the thighs is a result from another surgery, or due to simple aging. 

Thigh lift surgical details

A thigh lift is performed under general anesthesia. The quality of your skin, the extensiveness of your treatment, and your specific aesthetic goals will determine which type of thigh lift technique and incisions will be used. The different types of thigh lift techniques are as follows.

Different methods for thigh lift surgery

Vertical thigh lift

This type of thigh lift is for the troublesome inner thigh and knee area. The incision for a vertical lift runs along the groin crease and inside the thigh.

Medial/Inner thigh lift

With a medial thigh lift, the incision is made in the groin crease and goes to the crease of the buttocks. This method of thigh lift removes and tightens moderately excessive skin at the upper inner thigh.

Outer/Lateral thigh lift

The incision with an outer thigh lift goes completely around the waist. This method is for the upper area of the outer thighs.
