A thigh lift is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin from the inner or outer thigh and gives a slimmer, more toned appearance. A thigh lift is typically performed on patients with loose skin following weight loss that does not respond to exercise. Dr. Freedland also offers procedures such as tummy tucks and buttocks lifts for patients who have had weight loss.
Dr. Freedland begins the process by placing a large amount of fluid into the thigh. This makes the procedure safer and less painful by reducing blood loss. The excess skin from the thigh is removed. Dr. Freedland makes the incision with careful consideration to hide scarring. Liposuction can also be utilized to remove excess fat in other regions to enhance the effects of the thigh lift.
