Thigh Lift After Weight Loss

Conveniently located to serve Columbus, Cincinnati, and Cleveland

If you have excess skin on your thighs after bariatric surgery, you may face problems like clothing issues and skin irritation. Dr. Bivik Shah at the Columbus Institute of Plastic Surgery can help you solve these problems with a thigh lift, a procedure that removes excess skin and tightens your thighs. You can have your thigh lift at our office or at a hospital of your choice, depending on your convenience.

THIGH LIFT PROCEDURE: WHAT TO EXPECT

A thigh lift is different from other plastic surgeries because it involves longer incisions and recovery time. Dr. Shah will make two incisions, one from your knee to your groin, and another one in your groin crease. He will use advanced techniques to reduce scarring and improve results. A thigh lift has some risks, such as infection, bleeding, and fluid collection, but they are rare and treatable.

THIGH LIFT RECOVERY: HOW TO HEAL

You will be able to go home on the same day of your surgery, but you will need about six weeks to fully recover. You will also need to wear compression garments and bandages on your thighs, and use a walker for support. You will have to limit your activity and follow Dr. Shah’s instructions to avoid tension and infection on your incisions. Our staff will be with you every step of the way and answer all your questions.

THIGH LIFT CONSULTATION: HOW TO GET STARTED

He will answer all your questions and help you achieve your goals. With a thigh lift, you will be able to wear shorts, skirts, and swimwear without being self-conscious.
