Thigh-Buttock Lift

Some patients may struggle with a naturally flat or unshapely backside, while others experience loose skin along their thighs as they age. While diet and exercise can help address these concerns for some people, others may require plastic surgery to achieve the look they want.

Fortunately, Dr. Henry performs thigh and buttock lifts to produce tighter and more slender contours for an aesthetically pleasing lower body shape.

Dr. Henry and her team of specialists will provide you with several options to achieve your aesthetic goals.

What Are the Benefits of a Thigh-Buttock Lift?

Eliminate Drooping/Hanging Skin

Eliminate Drooping/Hanging Skin

Loose skin in the thigh and buttock area can make a person’s lower body appear flabby and misshapen. A thigh and buttock lift eliminates excess tissue and tightens the remaining skin to produce a more toned and firm appearance.

Remove Excess Fa

Remove Excess Fa

The thigh and buttock lift procedure can create more attractive and slender contours on your lower body by removing stubborn fat deposits from trouble areas. Some fat can be excised during a thigh-buttock lift, but liposuction can also be paired with this procedure to increase the extent of your results.

Smooth Cellulite and Dimpling

Smooth Cellulite and Dimpling

Many patients with dimpled skin in the thigh, hip, and buttock areas feel embarrassed about the way they look. With a thigh and/or buttock lift, the dimples in the skin can be addressed, leaving behind a smooth, uniform skin texture.

What Are My Procedure Options?


Patients unhappy with the appearance of their thighs and butt can look into getting thigh-buttock lift. Thigh-buttock lift is a surgical procedure that reshapes the thighs and backside by eliminating excess fat and tighten the skin to produce a smooth, toned, and sexy lower body contour.

  • Consultation

    Dr. Henry’s outstanding results are due to a combination of her skill and thorough consultation process. During your consultation with Dr. Henry, you will discuss your ideal appearance and the areas you wish to address so she can determine the best technique for your procedure.

  • Inner Thigh Lift Surgery

    Inner thigh lift surgery is ideal for patients who struggle with loose skin hanging from their inner thighs. During your procedure, an incision will be placed that extends from the groin crease at the front of the thighs and down around to the buttock crease. Excess skin is then removed, and the remaining skin is lifted to create an aesthetically pleasing appearance. Incisions are closed using surgical sutures.

  • Full Thigh-Buttock Lift Surgery

    Performing a full thigh-buttock lift will require longer incisions. During your procedure, incisions are made in the crease between the buttocks and thighs that then extend around the groin, up over the side of the abdomen, over the flank, and across the back. Once the incisions are placed, excess skin is lifted upward and removed from the thighs and buttocks, and the incisions are then closed.

Concerns

Recovery

Following your surgery, a compression garment will be placed on the treated area to protect your new contours and minimize swelling.
Swelling and bruising will occur but should resolve after a few weeks. You will be asked to avoid all strenuous activities for at least six weeks unless instructed otherwise by Dr. Henry. You should be able to return to work three weeks after your procedure.

Results

After your thigh-buttock lift, you can typically expect your thigh and buttock area to be more contoured and shapely. The results are generally long lasting if proper exercise and diet are maintained.

Scars

Dr. Henry makes sure to place incisions in inconspicuous locations that can be easily hidden underneath clothing. Any scars that form will likely fade over time.

Cost

The cost of your thigh-buttock lift will vary based on several factors, including surgical fees, anesthesia fees, and technique. During your consultation, Dr. Henry will provide you with a price sheet and determine the best strategy to make sure you reach your goals.
