Plastic surgeons at Prestige Institute for Plastic Surgery use state-of-the-art techniques to complete thigh lift procedures. Our experts apply the best approach for your needs to reduce the appearance of the inner or outer thighs, helping you achieve a body that is firmer, more youthful-looking and more proportionate to your overall body image. Thigh lifting is also addressed by body lift procedures.

Am I candidate for a thigh lift?

A thigh lift reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin, and in some cases fat, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body. When performing the lift, a surgeon may remove either medial (inner) thigh skin or outer (lateral) thigh skin.

If fitness and weight loss efforts have not helped achieved your goals, a surgical thigh lift may be right for you. 

Good candidates for a thigh lift include:

  • Individuals whose weight is relatively stable
  • Individuals with excess soft tissue along the inner or medial thigh region and/or the outer thigh
  • Healthy individuals who do not have medical conditions that can impair healing or increase risk of surgery
  • Non-smokers
  • Individuals with a positive outlook and realistic goals for what the surgery can accomplish
  • Individuals committed to leading a healthy lifestyle including proper nutrition and fitness.
  • The best way to determine if you are a candidate for this procedure is through a consultation with a plastic surgeon at Cleveland Clinic Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery Center.

How do I prepare for a thigh lift?

Preparing for your thigh lift at Prestige Institute for Plastic Surgery includes discussing a number of questions about your health, desires and lifestyle with your plastic surgeon, including:

  • Why you want the procedure, your expectations and desired outcome
  • Your medical conditions, drug allergies and medical treatments
  • Your use of current medications, vitamins, herbal supplements, alcohol, tobacco and drugs.

Your Prestige Institute plastic surgeon may also:

  • Evaluate your general health and any pre-existing health conditions or risk factors
  • Examine and measure your body, including recording detailed measurements and taking photos for your medical record
  • Discuss your surgical options
  • Discuss likely expected outcomes of the surgery and risks or potential complications.
