Addressing the excess fat and/ or skin on your thighs can be extremely difficult. Whether the cause is weight gain, pregnancy, or aging, a thigh lift can improve the contour of your legs.

What is a Thigh Lift?

Thigh lift surgery can reshape and restore the look of your thighs by removing any excess skin or stubborn fat. Thigh lift surgery is ideal for individuals who despite a balanced diet and exercise cannot improve the contour of the legs.


Recovery Time

6 Weeks

Anesthesia Type

General Anesthesia or IV Sedation

Thigh Lift Candidates

To be considered a good candidate for Thigh Lift Surgery, you should be in overall good health, a non-smoker, and have a BMI of 30 or less. Dr. D’Agostino also recommends that her patients be at a stable weight for at least 6 months. Patients must have realistic expectations for the surgery and should be committed to a healthy lifestyle with an exercise routine and a healthy diet.

The Thigh Lift Procedure

Depending on the amount of tissue that needs to be addressed, you will either receive IV sedation or general anesthesia. Double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. D’Agostino will create a discreet incision. Based on your needs, several incision patterns are available including:

Inner Thigh Lift Incision

Incision is either made along the groin area, or along the inner thigh from the groin to the knee. Once the incisions are made, the excess skin and tissue is removed. The remaining skin will be pulled together improving the contour of the leg.

Thigh Lift Recovery

Recovering after your thigh lift procedure will include caring for your incisions and monitoring drainage. You will also be wearing compression garments to decrease the amount of swelling. Double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. D’Agostino will provide detailed instructions, including how to take care of the surgical area, medications and how often to take them, and any concerns to be mindful of while recovering. You must avoid physical activity for a few weeks after the procedure. Following Dr. D’Agostino’s aftercare instructions are essential for optimal healing.

I knew two things were most important to me when looking for the right surgeon: the results and bedside manner. I feel so grateful to have hit the jackpot with Dr D who gave me the BEST of both of those. From the first moment I met her in the consult, I knew she was different from most doctors. She is incredibly kind, sweet, patient, and attentive. She made me feel cared for in a way that’s hard to put into words, but when you’re preparing for a big surgery, it’s the exact type of energy that puts you at total ease. Dr D not only answered all my questions, on multiple different occasions, leading up to surgery but she was extremely patient with them all. 

I am extremely pleased with Dr. D’Agostino.

I am extremely pleased with Dr. D’Agostino. She is always on time, personable and kind! She walked me through every step of my procedure, removed all of my cancer and did an amazing job. My scar is barely noticeable at just a couple weeks after my procedure. I will definitely be back for any other cosmetic needs.
