Enhance Your Lower-Body Contours With a Thigh Lift in Thousand Oaks

Many people struggle with excess fat or loose, sagging skin around the thighs, which can be difficult to eliminate with diet and exercise alone. This can disrupt your bodily proportions, make it harder to find clothes that fit properly, and hurt your self-confidence and self-image. For patients who are looking to attain firmer, more toned thighs, we at Elevate Plastic Surgery offer a transformative procedure called a thigh lift.

What Is a Thigh Lift?

A thigh lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure used to remove excess skin and fat from the inner thighs, resulting in a more toned and contoured appearance. This procedure is often performed on individuals who have recently lost a significant amount of weight, as weight loss can sometimes leave behind quite a bit of excess skin. A thigh lift can also be beneficial for patients who simply want to enhance the contours of their lower body.

Benefits of a Thigh Lift

If you’re interested in attaining firmer, more youthful-looking thighs, a thigh lift can potentially offer all of the following benefits:

  • Enhanced lower-body contours
  • More toned, defined thighs
  • Tightening of loose, sagging skin
  • Improved bodily proportions
  • Better-fitting clothing
  • Increased wardrobe options
  • Improved mobility and athletic performance
  • Long-lasting, natural-looking results
  • Improved self-confidence and self-image

What to Expect During Your Thigh Lift Surgery

Sitting down for a consultation with Dr. Rahgozar to discuss your goals and expectations is an important step to take before your thigh lift procedure. During this consultation, he will examine your thighs and discuss the best approach for your treatment. After learning about your needs, health, and medical history, Dr. Rahgozar will work with you to put together a treatment plan that’s custom-tailored to your unique situation.

Your thigh lift will be performed as an outpatient procedure using general anesthesia. Dr. Rahgozar will begin by making incisions in the thigh area, which he will use to strategically remove excess skin and fat. This may include the excision of excess skin and tissue as well as liposuction to eliminate stubborn fat pockets.

Finally, he will close your incisions with sutures and apply bandages as needed. Following your procedure, you’ll need to remain at the surgical site for monitoring for a couple of hours. After that, a friend or family member can give you a ride home and, ideally, stay with you for the first night or two of your recovery.

Thigh Lift Recovery Process

You can expect to experience some swelling, bruising, and soreness in the treatment area(s) after your thigh lift surgery. If necessary, Dr. Rahgozar can prescribe you pain medication, and you’ll also need to wear compression garments on your thighs for several weeks to help reduce swelling and promote healing.

During the first few days after surgery, you’ll need to rest frequently, and you may need assistance with daily tasks such as bathing, dressing, and getting around. It’s also important to keep your legs elevated as much as possible to reduce swelling.

You should be able to start gradually resuming light activities after a few days or a week, and most patients can return to work within about two weeks. However, strenuous physical activities should be avoided for at least four to six weeks–especially activities that put strain on your lower body.
