Thigh Lift Procedures in Beverly Hills
Helping Patients Achieve Smooth, Sculpted Thighs
Thigh lift surgery in Beverly Hills, also known as thighplasty, is a procedure to tuck and contour the upper thighs. After fluctuations in body weight, a person may be left with excess skin and fatty tissue in the upper or medial thighs. This body contouring procedure is designed to eradicate that tissue and provide slimmer, more contoured upper thighs.
Is Thighplasty Right for You?
If you have excess skin and tissue in the inner or outer thighs, which significantly protrudes and causes discomfort, this procedure may be ideal for you. Excess skin can be a problem in the upper thighs after weight loss. In many cases, fat deposits also collect in this area, which is often impossible to remove with diet or exercise. Good candidates are non-smokers who have reached a healthy and stable body weight.

How Surgery Creates Slimmer Thighs
When performed alone, thigh lift surgery is an outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia. Operating time is approximately 4 to 7 hours. Dr. Aboolian will first make markings in the areas that need contouring, planning surgical incisions in the natural creases of your skin.
An incision is usually made in the inner leg crease, traveling from the groin toward the knee (see photo) and excess skin is removed. The newly draped skin exhibits a smoother contour and an overall decreased circumference of the thighs.
What to Expect After Thighplasty
Recovery time is approximately 4 to 6 weeks after thigh lift surgery, during which time you will need to wear a special elastic garment to promote skin contraction and minimize swelling. Surgical drains may be used during the first week of recovery.
Your activities will be limited for a few weeks. Walking is typically recommended the day after surgery, with light exercise resumed in about two weeks. Follow Dr. Aboolian’s post-operative instructions closely during your recovery.
Thigh Lift After Weight Loss
Massive weight loss, which commonly involves the disappearance of fatty tissue after bariatric surgery, often leaves excess skin on the thighs. If you have recently had weight-loss surgery, you will probably notice loose, drooping folds of skin on your thighs. Dr. Aboolian is an internationally renowned plastic surgeon who regularly performs thigh lift surgery in Beverly Hills. With thigh lift surgery, weight-loss surgery patients gain smoother thighs, greater self-confidence, and an improved body image. This surgery can be performed on its own or in combination with other post-bariatric surgeries.
