Thigh Lift

Enhance Your Physique and Your Confidence with a Thigh Lift

Image of thigh lift patientEven if you adhere to a vigorous workout routine, it may still be extremely difficult to eliminate stubborn fat and loose skin in the upper legs and thighs. Additionally, even if you are able to to successfully lose weight, your thighs may still lack the tight and toned look that you desire. Expert cosmetic surgeon Stephen T. Greenberg provides a variety of world-class cosmetic procedures, including the thigh lift, at his Long Island, NY, practice. Slimmer, tightened thighs can boost your confidence, and help you feel proud to show off your legs again.


Good candidates for a thigh lift procedure typically:

  • Are committed to maintaining a healthy lifestyle through diet and exercise
  • Have achieved a stable weight
  • Are non-smokers
  • Do not have any medical condition that might increase the risk of surgery
  • Have excess, unwanted tissue along the thighs

Surgical Techniques

During your consultation, Dr. Greenberg will explain various thigh lift techniques with you in further detail, and determine which option would best achieve your goals.

Bilateral Thigh Lift

During this procedure, an incision is made along the upper portion of the leg, concealed just below the bikini line. In some cases, the incision may extend around the hip toward the buttock. Excess skin is removed before tissue is tightened, smoothed, and reattached. The procedure is typically performed on patients with excess skin on the upper or outer portions of their thighs.

Inner Thigh Lift

When treating excess skin on the inner thighs, Dr. Greenberg will make an incision along the upper leg where the thigh and pelvic bone meet. Skin and fat will be removed, and skin will be tightened to create improved contours and a smoother, more toned look. Typically, this procedure is a good option for patients with reduced skin elasticity resulting from aging or significant weight loss.

Medial Thigh Lift

Following extreme weight loss, patients are often dissatisfied with excess skin on the upper portions of the inner thigh. Similar to the inner thigh lift, this procedure requires an incision near the groin that extends around to the crease of the buttocks. Excess skin and fat is removed, and then tightened to deliver a smoother, improved shape.

A thigh lift contours your legs for more attractive thighs and buttocks.

What to Expect after Surgery

Recovery following your thigh lift is a gradual process, and the timeline will vary. Patients can typically expect to return to work after two or three weeks. During this time, patients must be careful when sitting on their thighs, and also wear a compression garment at all times. Most patients can expect to achieve full recovery within six to 12 months after surgery. Follow-up appointments are advised during this period.

By carefully following the post-operative directions provided by Dr. Greenberg, you can expect a timely recovery and beautiful results.

Schedule Your Consultation

It can be frustrating to follow the advice of professional dietitians or fitness instructors to achieve tighter thighs, but not see results. If you are ready to achieve the contoured legs and lean thighs that you have been longing for, contact Dr. Greenberg today for a consultation
