Thigh Lift Surgery

Naples Plastic Surgery

Naples Plastic Surgery is highly acclaimed throughout the Naples, Florida area for surgical expertise, state-of-the-art facilities, and confidence-inspiring rapport with patients. Dr. Mark Walsh, Dr. Andrew Bonett, and the team at Naples Plastic Surgery strive to help all thigh lift patients reach their aesthetic goals by reducing excess skin and fat around the thighs to produce tighter and better proportioned contours of the upper legs.

Dramatic weight loss, aging, and a loss of skin elasticity can all lead to sagging skin around the thighs. Sagging thighs can cause patients to be self-conscious and instill a negative body image, especially when exercise, diet and healthy living fail to rectify the condition. A thigh lift— “thighplasty”—removes excess fat and tightens skin around the thighs to restore the contours of the legs. Dr. Walsh and Dr. Bonett offer thighplasty in consultation with their patients as a stand-alone procedure, or as part of a tummy tuck or mommy makeover.

Hi, I’m Dr. Bonett, and today we’re talking about thigh lift. Many people come to us with concerns for excess skin or sagging skin of their thighs and this is often confined to the inner or the outer portion of the thighs and when there is excess skin often liposuction is not powerful enough to deal with this laxity and sagging skin.

In this case a thigh lift is necessary. In some cases we may be able to perform a short scar thigh lift where the scar is a little bit shorter and hidden up near the top of the thigh. During our consultation we’ll decide if you’re a better candidate for a short scar thigh lift or a full thigh lift and we’ll choose the option that’s best for you to provide a more defined Contour of your thighs.

Please see us for a consultation to determine which procedure is best for you

Thighplasty in Naples

Prior to any procedure, Dr. Walsh and Dr. Bonett meet with patients on a confidential one-on-one basis in order to get know the patient and fully determine his or her aesthetic goals. This results in the formation of a personalized treatment plan designed to help the patient achieve maximum results from their plastic surgery experience.

A thighplasty can include an inner (medial) thigh lift, an outer thigh lift, or both. As suggested, the former is designed to address the contours of the inner thigh, while the latter takes care of proportioning the outer thigh. Our surgeons can perform the outer thigh lift in conjunction with the tummy tuck procedure, in a combination known as an extended tummy tuck. In select patients, both procedures can be performed simultaneously.

With both thigh lift procedures, the surgeon carefully determines and marks incision sites based on contouring/surgical needs and to ensure minimal visible scarring. The use of liposuction for the removal of excess fat deposits may be recommended for some patients. When possible, the procedures will be combined, but in some cases the liposuction may have to be performed first as a separate procedure several months prior to the thighplasty.
