For many patients, toning the lower body, including the thighs, can seem nearly impossible. Even with vigorous exercise, excess fat and skin cannot always be eliminated from this area of the body. At the Center for Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Jeffrey DeMercurio perform thigh lifts for patients who wish to do away with stubborn fat and extra skin on their upper legs. This procedure effectively firms the thighs, revealing a smoother, youthful, and more attractive look. To learn more about the thigh lift procedure, contact our practice today.

Thigh lift surgery is a popular cosmetic procedure, designed to firm the thighs and help patients achieve a sculpted, beautiful figure. This unique procedure can be performed in a variety of ways, and Dr. DeMercurio can determine which method will help you achieve your aesthetic goals. The three main types of thigh lift are inner, bilateral, and medial thigh lift. During a bilateral thigh lift, the surgeon targets the front and side of the thighs, while an inner thigh lift targets the inside of the legs. A medial thigh lift targets the top of the thighs, and can completely transform the shape of the lower body. Each of these procedures effectively tightens skin and leave patients with a slimmer figure. Your surgeon will make an incision on the leg, which will vary in location and length based on your specific goals. After removing and sculpting the tissue, Dr. DeMercurio will eliminate excess skin, and close the incision with sutures. Although bruising and swelling will be a factor, patients can see the results of their thigh lift almost immediately.
The primary candidates for thigh lift surgery include individuals who are unhappy with loose, soft skin or excess fat around their thighs. It is important to note that patients who wish to undergo thigh lift surgery should have a stabilized weight, as gaining or losing a significant amount of weight after surgery can hinder results. Patients who maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen are most likely to be satisfied with the results of the procedure.
At the Center for Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery, our surgeons have helped hundreds of patients gain the toned, shapely legs they’ve always wanted through thigh lift surgery. This surgery is especially beneficial for those who have been affected by aging, as well as those who suffer from loose, sagging skin after losing a significant amount of weight. By improving a patient’s overall figure, a thigh lift can help patients feel more confident. Those who undergo thigh lift surgery can feel good about showing off their legs in shorts and bathing suits, something which may not have been possible prior to surgery. Many patients are also able to undergo thigh lift surgery in conjunction with a butt lift or gluteal implants, to completely reshape their lower body. Finally, a thigh lift is beneficial because it has long-lasting results. When followed up with healthy lifestyle habits, patients can expect firm, attractive legs for years after surgery.
