A Better Way To Slimmer Thighs: Why Consider A Thigh Lift?

Thigh lift procedures can slim the inner and outer thighs (along with areas around hips and knees), thereby improving your body contour. Some individuals experience reduced skin elasticity due to aging, while others have stubborn fat deposits even after significant weight loss. Dr. Lisa J. Learn offers solutions to address these concerns, helping patients regain a toned and youthful thigh contour.

The Thigh Lift Procedure

The thigh lift procedure involves a series of precise steps to rejuvenate and contour the upper legs:

Incision Placement

Dr. Learn strategically places an incision below the bikini line, ensuring it remains inconspicuous and concealed.

Excess Skin and Fat Removal

Through this incision, excess skin and fat are carefully removed, customizing the length of the incision according to the amount of skin to be addressed.

Skin Tightening

The remaining skin is skillfully tightened and brought together to create a smoother and firmer thigh appearance.

Drain Insertion

Temporary drainage tubes are inserted at the incision site to facilitate proper healing.

Suture and Compression

Deep sutures and compression garments are utilized to minimize skin sagging and promote a speedy recovery.


In many cases, liposuction is incorporated to eliminate stubborn pockets of excess fat from the thighs and legs.

This comprehensive procedure typically lasts between two to four hours and can be performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia, although occasionally, an overnight stay may be recommended for certain individuals. Dr. Learn's expertise ensures that each step is meticulously executed, delivering optimal results and enhancing the overall contour of the thighs.

Recovery And Results

As is the case with almost any surgery, it’s typical to have a certain degree of bruising, swelling, and even a little numbness after the procedure. Usually, this disappears anywhere from several weeks to several months. The following are some points to keep in mind so you know what to expect:

  • You may have bandages and will possibly need to wear a compression garment to minimize swelling and provide added support to your new contours during the healing process. Draining tubes are a possibility as well, but not to worry—we will provide detailed care instructions.
  • In most cases, you can return to low-level activities in about two to three weeks, and your normal, active routine in approximately four to six weeks. Full recovery can take up to one year, although such a lengthy period tends to be rare.
  • You will be able to see the results of your thigh lift almost immediately. That said, it might take up to several months for the final results to fully develop. Also, you should be aware there will likely be some visible scarring (but Dr. Learn takes every measure to keep them as minimal as possible).
  • The overall results are long-lasting, provided that you maintain a stable weight through healthy eating and regular exercise.
  • Please keep in mind that your body will lose some firmness as you age, which is completely natural. Even with that being the case, most of your initial improvement should be relatively permanent.
