Shapely legs are a distinctive feature of health, vitality, and beauty. Our cosmetic surgery patients believe that wearing shorts and skirts is almost a requirement of the excellent weather we are fortunate to enjoy year-round. Being physically active or participating in outdoor activities in long pants can be cumbersome, if not restrictive, and possibly depressing. At Marina Plastic Surgery in Los Angeles, CA, our surgeons understand how important it is to have thighs that look attractive and feel comfortable. If fat deposits and loose skin are causing you problems, they can offer their professional guidance and highly-skilled technique to help.
A thigh lift in Los Angeles removes excess fat, tightens the skin, and re-contours the upper leg, usually with concealable scars. Thigh lifts can be combined with other procedures like liposuction or a tummy tuck. Many thigh lifts are performed on the inner thigh, but thigh lifts also can be performed on the outer thigh or included with a buttock lift.
Being able to wear shorts or skirts again, feeling the sun on your legs, and finding freedom of movement from unwanted fat and skin deposits can dramatically improve your quality of life. To receive a private consultation, request your appointment online and schedule your visit during one of the select times our surgeons have set aside exclusively for Web visitors.

Younger Patients Are Choosing Cosmetic Surgery
Sometimes no matter how many miles you walk or how many salads you eat, you just can’t get rid of those pockets of unsightly fat on your lower body. Gravity and aging are other factors that contribute to the loss of shape and contour. For others who have lost a significant amount of weight, the skin can sag, ripple, and fold in ways that cannot be remedied except with surgery. Thigh-lift cosmetic surgery may be a good option for many women and men who find themselves in these situations.
During your thigh lift operation, an anesthetic will be administered by a doctor for your comfort. Intravenous sedation and general anesthesia are both viable choices. Your healthcare provider will advise you on the best course of action. Different incision patterns are used depending on the area or areas, how much correction is needed and what you and your doctor have discussed and outlined in your treatment plan.
One method for a thigh lift involves making incisions in the groin that go all the way down and wrap around the back of the leg. Another method involves making an incision down the inseam to remove extra skin from the groin to the knee. You can also be a candidate for a minimally invasive inner thigh lift, which requires only a groin incision. What is appropriate will be determined by your plastic surgeon.
An incision that goes from the groin to the hip and across the back may be necessary to improve the shape of the outer thigh. Incisions may typically be strategically positioned so that most clothing and swimwear can conceal them using advanced procedures. Extensive incisions may not be avoidable depending on your surgical needs.
Your newly sculpted contours are supported and helped by sutures positioned deep within the underlying tissues.
The skin incisions may be closed with sutures, skin adhesive tapes, or clips. Despite initial swelling and bruising, the smoother, tighter contouring that a thigh lift produces is instantly noticeable. Learn more about the outcomes of thigh lifts. To temporarily drain any extra fluid or blood that may have accumulated, tiny, thin tubes may be temporarily inserted under the skin.
The outcome of your surgery depends on you following your doctor's recommendations. During the healing process, it's crucial that the surgical incisions not be subjected to an excessive amount of strain, swelling, abrasion, or motion. You'll receive detailed instructions from your doctor on how to take care of yourself.
After a thigh lift, the benefits are almost immediately apparent. The final results, however, might not be completely developed for several months.
Skin quality is enhanced both in terms of appearance and feel after a Los Angeles thigh lift. Even though there will be some noticeable scarring, the overall results are durable as long as you keep your weight constant and stay physically healthy. It is normal for your body to lose some firmness as you become older. The majority of your first improvement should still be there. Although positive outcomes from your operation are anticipated, there is no assurance. In some cases, a single surgical treatment might not be sufficient to produce the best results, and a second surgery can be required.
Healthy, vibrant, and beautiful people typically have legs that are in good shape. Shorts and skirts, according to our Los Angeles surgical patients, are practically a required part of our uniform due to the great weather we have all year round. Learn how a thigh lift can make your thighs look younger. We strive to deliver the best thigh lift Los Angeles has to offer. Make an appointment for a thigh lift at Marina Plastic Surgery right away!

Compared to other treatments, a thigh lift is typically not too uncomfortable. At the time of operation, we attempt to lessen pain by saturating the area with both short- and long-acting local anesthetics.
Your plastic surgeon will thoroughly explain any complications of surgery. Risks associated with thigh lift surgery may include anesthesia dangers, asymmetry, excessive bleeding, problems related to cardiac, pulmonary, deep vein thrombosis, and necrosis of fatty tissue.
Medical insurance does not cover a thigh lift because it is considered a cosmetic procedure. However, Marina Plastic Surgery offers payment and financing options for your convenience.
