Orlando Plastic Surgery Thigh Lift Procedure

A thigh lift, also known as thighplasty, can significantly improve the appearance of upper legs with loose and excess skin resulting from weight loss. The procedure involves the removal of excess skin, fat, and tissue to tone and refine the upper legs.

The upper legs become an increasingly problematic area as people age. Some find that despite massive weight loss, the thighs remain stubbornly resistant to diet and exercise. Thigh lift surgery reshapes the thighs, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body.

The procedure is often performed in conjunction with liposuction to eliminate excess fat.

If you have questions about thigh lift surgery or want to request a consultation at Dr. Azad’s office in Orlando, please fill out the form below.

  • What determines if you need an Arm Lift versus Liposuction alone?
    An arm lift, also known as a brachioplasty, can significantly improve the appearance of arms by removing excess skin that is sagging or apear loose. Liposuction by itself, though frequently done in conjunction with an arm lift, does not correct the issue of excess skin which often is the result of significant weight loss, natural aging, and heredity.
  • What kind of scars can I expect from an Arm Lift?
    For an arm lift, the most common incision will extend from the armpit to the elbow, however the location and length of the incision will vary depending on the amount of skin that will be removed, as well as the location of the excess skin flap. Additionally a curved or z-shaped incision maybe be made during the procedure to minimize the appearance of scarring after healing.
  • What is the expected recovery time for an Arm Lift?
    Recovery time is highly dependent on the patient and how their body responds to arm lift surgery. Before leaving the center, you will be given specific instructions on how to care for your arms, medications to use, and when to follow-up with Dr. Azad. To reduce swelling, arms need to be elevated when sitting and sleeping. For the first few days, you will need to take sponge baths but showering may resume as soon as the drains come out. Patients are normally able to return to work and light activities after two weeks. After the procedure, light walking is encouraged to help stimulate healing and reduce your risk for blood clots. Exercise and normal activity can resume typically eight weeks after your arm lift surgery.
