Loose Thigh Skin
Conveniently located to serve the areas of Marin County, Santa Rosa and San Francisco, CA
Love your legs again. Loss of elasticity as we age creates loose skin around the upper thighs.
About Loose Thigh Skin
The thighs are exposed in shorts as well as bathing suits.
In addition, massive weight loss, either by surgery or diet/exercise, also leads to loose skin around the thighs.
If that skin is too loose, it can fold into the pleats of a “roman curtain,” creating a displeasing look. No-surgical tightening offers a very modest improvement, so most of the improvement is gotten from a surgical thigh lift.
How We Help
We offer both non-surgical and surgical tightening of the thigh skin.
For those who prefer no downtime and have modest sagging skin, we can offer radiofrequency treatments that tighten the skin on n ongoing basis. For more severe cases, a surgical thigh lift is the answer.
Will a thigh lift remove cellulite or stretch marks?
Thigh lift surgery is a great way to slim the contour and improve the appearance of your legs. Since a thigh lift includes tightening the skin and correcting stubborn fat pockets, it can improve the visibility of cellulite and stretch marks on your thighs. If you’re interested in addressing stretch marks or cellulite, let us know in your consultation so we can adjust your treatment plan to fit all of your goals.
How long will my results last?
After your surgery, if you stay healthy with regular exercise and a balanced diet, you should maintain your thigh lift results for many years. We recommend that you be at or near a healthy, stable weight prior to thigh lift surgery so it’s easy to keep your results. Significant weight changes or pregnancy following your thigh lift can alter your appearance. In your consultation, we will talk to you about what will make your surgical results last.
Can I combine a thigh lift with other surgeries?
You may consider combining a thigh lift with a butt lift or tummy tuck to create a lower body lift. Thighplasties are also a common part of after weight loss surgery or a mommy makeover. In your initial consultation, talk to Dr. Canales or Dr. Furnas about your wants and goals so they can develop a comprehensive surgical plan that gives you the best results.
What about a nonsurgical thigh lift?
Although there are nonsurgical options to reduce fat in the body and tighten skin, these can help with mild improvements. A thighplasty is the best way to correct significant amounts of excess skin and stubborn pockets of fat on your thighs. If you’re considering nonsurgical procedures, ask Dr. Canales or Dr. Furnas to give you more information in your initial consultation. They will discuss the pros and cons of surgical and nonsurgical thigh treatment options, plus their opinion on which would be the best fit with your needs.
