3 Steps Involved in a Thigh Lift After Weight Loss

Patients requesting a thigh lift (thighplasty) after weight loss often do so to remove extra skin and fat. A thigh lift can contour the thighs and help them appear taut.

Step 1: Thigh Lift Consultation

Your thigh lift after weight loss will start with a consultation. You’ll meet with Dr. Bassiri-Tehrani and our patient care team to discuss your goals and concerns. The following topics may arise during your first appointment:

  • We’ll ask if you’ve reached your goal weight and are ready for surgery.
  • Our team will address and answer any questions you have about thigh lifts.
  • We’ll explain the procedure and detail your anticipated recovery time.

We’ll also discuss the cost of a thigh lift after weight loss. Generally, thigh lifts cost between $8,000 and $15,000.

Step 2: Thigh Lift Procedure

Dr. Bassiri-Tehrani performs thigh lift procedures at our premier in-office surgical suite.

First, he will use liposuction to remove excess fat from your thigh. Next, he’ll make an incision on your upper thigh to remove loose or excess skin.

Most thigh lifts are between 1 and 2 hours in length.

Step 3: Thigh Lift Recovery

Prepare to need 2 to 4 weeks to recover from your procedure. You’ll also need to refrain from exercise for a month.

Take note that, sometimes, recovery from a thigh lift after weight loss is longer, and the possibility of complications is higher due to poor skin quality and possible nutrition issues if you’ve had bariatric surgery.

Dr. Bassiri-Tehrani and our exceptional staff will monitor your recovery through follow-up appointments.
