An inner thigh lift removes loose, excess skin and fat from the inner thigh. Sagging skin, which cannot be eliminated by diet and exercise, can develop in this area due to weight loss or aging. As a complex procedure, an inner thigh lift should be performed by an experienced plastic surgeon to minimize the risks commonly associated with the operation. For patients in Tampa, Sarasota, Clearwater, St Petersburg, and throughout Florida, Board Certified Dr. Daniel Greenwald of Bayshore Plastic Surgery is the trusted choice.
Dr. Greenwald was educated and trained at Harvard, Yale, Princeton, and the University of Chicago, and has decades of experience performing inner thigh lifts and many other cosmetic procedures. He and his staff provide exceptional patient care and take the time to understand each patient’s body image goals.
Inner thigh lifts can:
- Eliminate dimpling caused by cellulite
- Reduce the size of the thighs
- Improve upper leg contours
What Happens During an Inner Thigh Lift Procedure?
Dr. Greenwald begins the procedure by creating an incision in the crease of the groin. A portion of excess skin is removed, the remaining skin is pulled taut, and the incision is stitched closed. Any excess fat on the inner thigh is removed with liposuction prior to the lift.
This procedure is generally safe, but poses the risk of infection, formation of blood clots, or separation of the sutures. Patients will experience swelling and bruising, and will be required to wear compression garments for four to six weeks following the procedure.
