Thigh Lift

Introduction to

Our beautiful bodies come in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes genetics can play a role in how parts of our bodies look, and when personal goals are set to achieve a new vision we seek, frustration or lack of confidence can occur if the results do not come to fruition. The truth is after many people have worked hard to lose weight, excess and sagging skin can still remain. It can be disheartening if it compromises your appearance after all you’ve done to look and feel better. One of the areas where this happens a lot is around the thighs. When thighs are disproportionate to the rest of the leg and the buttocks, one solution is to remove excess skin and fat through a procedure known at Aesthetic Contours known as a Thigh Lift. You no longer need to feel hopeless or frustrated with the sagging skin, and our centers in the Inland Empire are ready to book your consultation.

To lift the inner thighs, Dr. Heidari makes short incisions extending from the back of the thigh and groin crease to the buttock crease.

With all procedures come many inquiries or questions to understand better if it works for you; keep reading this page to find that answers you need to make a Thigh Lift a reality for yourself, and our team at Aesthetic Contours cannot wait to join you on the next step.

Aesthetic Contours

The first step of medical procedures is often the most difficult. We are here to assure you it will be the most pleasant, as it will be a warm welcome and detailed consultation at Aesthetic Contours; this will take place at our Inland Empire location in Upland. You will discuss your medical history, lifestyle, and expectations regarding the treatment. Once you decide that a Thigh Lift is a proper procedure for you, our team will deliver details on preparing for your operation. Before a Thigh Lift, we ask that you stop taking medications that increase bleeding. These include aspirin, specific supplements, and anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen. Dr. Heidari or one of our skilled technicians may also ask for a medical evaluation to ensure you’re a good candidate for surgery. Take your first step, today.

What to Expect on the Day of Thigh Lift

Aesthetic Contours

At Aesthetic Contours, Dr. Heidari performs Thigh Lifts on an outpatient basis and uses general anesthesia. On the day of a procedure, an incision will be made in the crease where the upper thigh meets the buttocks or in the groin area near the patient’s hip. The skin is then carefully separated from the underlying muscle and tissue, and excess skin is removed. Liposuction may be used to remove excess fat; this can be discussed during consultation. The remaining skin is stretched and tightened over the area and sutured closed by Dr. Heidari. The surgery takes between two to three hours. In cases of extreme skin excess, a vertical incision of the inner thigh is necessary for optimal results. Thin tubes may be placed under the skin to drain excess fluids.

On average, the entire procedure takes two hours to complete. Since you’ll also spend several hours in both pre-op and post-op, you should expect the entire process to take up most of the day. It’s a good idea to have someone drive you to and from your operation and stay with you overnight in case complications arise.

Thigh Lift Recovery

Aesthetic Contours

At Aesthetic Contours, the recovery process is just important to us as the actual surgery. We aim to make our patients feel as comfortable and confident as possible after any plastic surgery. After your Thigh Lift, a light dressing will be applied following your surgery. You will need to wear a soft compression garment for three to four days after the procedure, and it may be worn for up to three weeks, depending on the area treated. Swelling and bruising are common and subside over a few weeks after the surgery. Your stitches will be removed after seven to ten days, and most patients return to work in about one week and resume most normal activity within three weeks. You can return to regular exercise in about five to six weeks, and your results will be very noticeable.
