A NJ thigh lift is performed to tighten the skin around the inner thigh to form a more aesthetically pleasing frame. The outer thigh is generally not targeted in a thigh lift as liposuction and a butt lift tend to produce better results in that area of the leg.

This procedure requires a surgical incision of varying size based on how much skin must be removed. The location of the incision is usually on the medial side of the thigh and can be adjusted based on clothing preference or overall reduction of visibility.

After surgery in our Fort Lee office, the patient is dressed in a compression garment to limit swelling. Discomfort is generally minimal in smaller lifts, but when large amounts of skin are removed, an overnight stay in the hospital may be required. In either case, pain medication and anti-inflammatory methods will be utilized.

Light labor is normally possible after less than two weeks, while most physical activity is permissible at four to six weeks. All symptoms should be gone and scars maximally faded within six months after New Jersey cosmetic leg procedures.

Who is a good candidate for a thighplasty?

Good candidates for a thighplasty are individuals who have excess skin and/or fat in the thighs, which may be a result of weight loss, aging, or genetics. They should be in good overall health, have stable body weight, and have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the procedure.

What can I expect during the recovery period after a thighplasty?

After a thighplasty, there will be some swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the treated area. You will be given specific post-operative instructions, including wearing a compression garment, taking prescribed medications, and avoiding strenuous activities. Full recovery may take several weeks to a few months.

Will a thighplasty help me lose weight?

A thighplasty is not a weight loss procedure. It is intended to remove excess skin and fat and improve the contour of the thighs. While some weight may be removed with the excess tissue, the primary goal is to achieve a more toned and contoured thigh appearance. It is important to achieve a stable weight before undergoing the procedure for optimal results.
