Excess fat and loose skin on the inner thighs is a common problem with aging and after significant weight loss. Not only is the tissue in this area extremely resistant to diet and exercise, the skin easily loses elasticity and sags which can be a source of significant discomfort. Thigh lift surgery contours your upper legs eliminates uncomfortable chafing and restores your self-confidence.
Thigh lift surgery is a two-step procedure. First, specialized liposuction is performed to remove excess fat and stimulate skin contraction. Second, excess skin is removed to lift and contour the inner thigh. In the majority of cases, the only scar will be hidden along the upper leg/ groin crease; well hidden in shorts and swim trunks. During your consultation, Dr. Beck will individualize a plan and discuss how best to meet your goals.
The male thigh lift is performed under general anesthesia and typically takes two hours. The procedure is done as an outpatient meaning you may return home that same day. However, for many men an overnight stay at our 24- hour nurse staffed facility is a popular option in order to feel comfortable ambulating and taking care of the incisions before returning home. Patients usually return to work with light duty after 1 to 2 weeks and fully return to normal activities in six to eight weeks.
As a final touch following weight loss or for fine-tuning your body contour, male thigh lift procedures eliminate excess fat and unsightly loose skin. You’ll look and feel slimmer and sexier for a big boost in confidence and self-esteem.
