The thighs are one of the most problematic areas to shape. A thigh lift tightens and firms the skin to present a more youthful appearance and can be expertly performed by board-certified South Jersey plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Mohit Sood in his Linwood, New Jersey clinic.


What Is a Thigh Lift?

Surgery that helps South Jersey patients reduce excess skin to smooth and tone the thighs is known as a thigh lift. It may be performed on an outpatient basis in a medical clinic, but sometimes requires an overnight stay in the hospital.

Benefits of a Thigh Lift

A thigh lift can eliminate loose or hanging skin on the inner thighs, which is a problem many people are plagued with even after extensive diet and exercise. It can also be performed in conjunction with other procedures such as liposuction.

How Is a Thigh Lift Performed?

If your thigh lift is being performed on an outpatient basis, you will likely receive only local anesthesia, but if your surgery is completed in a hospital, you will probably receive general anesthesia.

Dr. Sood makes an incision that begins in your groin area and extends down and around the back of your thigh. If only a small amount of tissue is being removed, you may have an incision only in the groin area. Lifting the outer thigh may require an incision from the groin to the hip area.

The incisions will allow Dr. Sood to access internal tissues, which will then be trimmed and reshaped to present the desired appearance. Your internal tissues will then be secured with sutures before closing the outer skin with stitches, wound tape, or staples.

Preparing for a Thigh Lift

You should review before and after photographs carefully to ensure you fully understand what a thigh lift can and cannot do. A thigh lift is not suitable for eliminating cellulite and is not intended to be a substitute for weight loss. If you are comfortable with the anticipated results, you should prepare for your surgery by doing the following:

  • Finding someone to drive you to and from your appointment
  • Arranging for help with household chores
  • Undergoing any recommended blood work
  • Refraining from smoking or taking certain medications in the period leading up to your appointment

Recovery from a Thigh Lift

Your skin may feel tender and swollen just after a thigh lift, which is why Dr. Sood may prescribe medication to help with any discomfort. Using hot and cold therapy intermittently throughout the day can help eliminate swelling and bruising. You may also need to wear compression garments to support your thighs and promote healing.
