What is a Medial Thigh Lift?

A thigh lift is a surgical procedure that treats excess skin in the inner thigh area. Patients often complain of excess skin in this area after weight loss or with age. As with many plastic surgical procedures, the surgical technique used to address this area depends on the severity of the excess skin. In mild cases, certain nonsurgical, or minimally invasive procedures, can be performed to help tighten and lift the excess skin and fatty tissue. In other cases, either a short scar or an extended scar procedure is required to achieve maximum results. Extensive measures are taken by Dr. Joshua Cox to conceal these scars as best as possible, such as aggressive scar management techniques to keep the scars as light and inconspicuous as possible.

Why Consider Thighplasty

Many of our patients who have undergone massive weight loss or have developed excess thigh skin with age are very self-conscious about this area. They complain that clothes do not fit correctly, they are unable to wear certain clothing, and they can have hygiene issues as well. Some patients simply desire sleeker, tighter-looking thighs. A thigh lift can help you achieve this sleek contour.

Procedures Are Often Performed along with a Medial Thigh Lift

Many patients seeking a thigh lift have undergone massive weight loss and require the removal of excess skin from several areas of the body, including the abdomen, thighs, back, and breast. Dr. Cox has experience in staging and combining many of these massive weight loss and body contouring procedures and can counsel his patients on the timing and progression of these surgeries.

Thigh lift procedures are often a careful balance between scarring and contour. While everyone’s goal is to maximize contour and minimize scarring, sometimes a trade-off must exist. Cox Cosmetic Surgery wants to work with you to achieve your specific goals and perform the right procedure for you.

What to Expect on the Day of Your Medial Thigh Lift Procedure

On the day of your surgery, Dr. Cox will meet you in the preoperative area to go over any last-minute questions or concerns you may have. He will make preoperative markings and will perform extensive checks with attention to detail, ensuring high-quality care and safety. You will meet the anesthesiologist and their team, as well as the members of our operative team.

During the procedure, Dr. Cox pays meticulous attention to detail and works to ensure a great result with a focus on safety and quality. Your family will be updated on your status periodically and will be able to talk with Dr. Cox one-on-one after the procedure is completed.


Recovery after a Medial Thigh Lift

Your recovery will depend on the type of procedure performed by Dr. Cox. You will likely have a surgical garment with surgical dressings in place. It is normal to have some drainage on these dressings after surgery. Depending on the type of procedure, you may also have some drain tubes in place. These typically are removed a few days to a few weeks after surgery. You will be given a scar care kit and detailed instructions regarding scar management.
