Bare Your Beautiful Legs
A Thigh Lift eliminates extra fat, tightens skin, and reshapes the upper leg, typically leaving behind concealable scars. Thigh lifts can be performed in conjunction with liposuction or a tummy tuck. Thigh lifts are frequently performed on the inner thigh, although they can also be performed on the outer thigh or in conjunction with a butt lift.
Consulting with Thigh Lift Atlanta plastic surgeon, Dr. Yalif, in his office is the next step to see real aesthetic results. Depending on the severity of the skin and the density of the fat, our cosmetic surgeon may also recommend liposuction for fat reduction in areas that need it most. Combining a Thigh Lift with liposuction may be the best answer to produce the most realistic results.

What To Expect
Thigh Lift surgery is performed quite often by plastic surgeons, especially now with so many successful weight loss surgery patients. This surgery can be performed in an outpatient setting, but if it is combined with other procedures, an overnight stay may be necessary.
The incision for the Thigh Lift varies from patient to patient, depending on which type of thigh lift is being performed (medial, lateral, etc.), as well as the amount, location, and severity of the loose skin being removed. This cosmetic procedure is performed with the patient under general anesthesia and usually takes two to four hours in the operating room. As discussed in the consultation, patients can expect there to be swelling, bruising, and some pain after surgery, all of which can be managed accordingly.

After the Thigh Lift, you can expect to see smoother skin with less dimpling or visible cellulite. As each patient’s surgery is different, it is hard to estimate how long the recovery may be. It is recommended to follow all of the aftercare instructions and scar treatments as prescribed by the surgeon. All patients should wait to resume strenuous physical activity until instructed by the surgeon at the follow-up appointments.

Whether it is a facelift or a tummy tuck, we will want to maximize our results. Dr. Yalif knows that the best way to help your body through the surgery journey is with adjunctive skincare regimens. These recommendations will help maintain your results longer, refine scars, and achieve your desired aesthetic!
For face procedures, we recommend a pre-op retinoid, usually from the Environ line. Their multi-level retinoid system allows the escalation of the retinoid’s effect, usually without all the drying and itchiness usually associated with these types of products. Post-operatively, we recommend a combination of therapies aimed at keeping your skin youthful while allowing your incisions to fully heal with excellent support, essentially maintaining your results and improving the quality of your skin over time. These include Environ’s Skin Essentia line for both cleansing and moisturizing, followed by the Vita-peptide C-quence serum 2 – containing vitamins A, C, and E, along with hydrating and toning elements for your skin. We add the super moisturizer at night and the ISDIN SPF during the day to complete the recovery of your skin and enhance your results for years.
If you’ve had an eye procedure or just want a good recommendation for an eye cream, Dr. Y recommends the Environ Vita-peptide gel. It will help with puffiness, fine lines, crow’s feet, and more. Essentially it is an excellent product on its own and will augment any result you get if Dr. Y is doing a periorbital procedure too.
And don’t think we neglect your body! In addition to the recommendations above, we highly recommend The Derma-Lac lotion postoperatively to help exfoliate your skin and soften smooth and moisturize the treated areas to improve overall skin health. We also will add vitamin A, C, and E body oil to help the appearance of stretch marks, scarring, pigmentation, and dry skin. Our experts are happy to answer questions and make additional recommendations based on your particular needs.
