Thigh Lift in Worcester, MA

Many people following weight loss find that muscle tissue in the thighs remains lax and sagging with excess skin that needs to be removed. A thigh lift may help you regain youthful contour in the thigh area. For individuals in Worcester, Massachusetts, and the surrounding communities, Salisbury Plastic Surgery in Worcester, led by Dr. Deborah K. Ekstrom, a board-certified plastic surgeon, provides excellence in thigh lift surgery and other cosmetic procedures.

What is a Thigh Lift?

A thigh lift is a surgical procedure that trims away loose skin and extracts fatty deposits from the thighs to produce a more toned, defined contour.

Benefits of a Thigh Lift

Extreme weight loss generally leaves loose, hanging skin on the thighs, causing an unsightly aged look that detracts from your appearance. A thigh lift trims away this loose skin and suctions fatty pockets from the thighs, producing a toned, firm thigh contour, and a streamlined, youthful appearance.  Many patients report a better fit in their clothing and a renewed sense of self-esteem after this procedure.

Why Should I Consider A Thigh Lift?

Most patients elect to undergo thigh lift surgery to eliminate excess fatty deposits around the thighs and trim away loose hanging skin in the area.  Patients who wish to reduce the circumference of the thigh area, desire more definition in their thighs or want to tone areas on the thighs that do not respond to diet and exercise, benefit from a thigh lift to rejuvenate their appearance.

Am I A Good Candidate For Thigh Lift Surgery?

A thigh lift is recommended for adult patients who are in overall good health and have achieved a stable weight but are left with loose folds of skin or fatty bulges in the inner or outer thighs. A consultation with Dr. Ekstrom can help you determine whether this procedure may be right for you.

What Happens During the Thigh Lift Procedure?

The thigh lift requires an incision along the inner thigh to remove excess fat and skin. Liposuction may also be used to extract additional fat from the area. The procedure is usually performed in less than four hours and produces immediate and lasting results.

Recovery after a Thigh Lift

The thigh lift surgery leaves hairline scars that are camouflaged to minimize visibility and will fade gradually over time. You will be instructed to wear a compression garment on the thighs for a period of three to four weeks after the procedure.  You may resume regular physical activities after a period of three to four weeks.

How Much Does A Thigh Lift Cost in Worcester?

A thigh lift may or may not be combined with other procedures. Thus the price will vary between patients. Because a thigh lift is an elective procedure, most health insurance providers will not cover it. Our office provides easy payment options and flexible financing to help all our patients cover the cost of cosmetic procedures.

Ekstrom at Salisbury Plastic Surgery in Worcester, serving women in Shrewsbury and surrounding communities in Massachusetts. Contact our office today to schedule a consultation.
