When you have excess skin and fat deposits in the thigh region, a thighplasty in Scottsdale can effectively shape and tighten the contours of your thighs.
Shapely legs are a distinctive sign of good physical health, vitality, and beauty. Our cosmetic surgery patients believe that strutting in shorts, skirts, and bikinis is almost a prerequisite to the warm and sunny weather we get to enjoy all year round in Arizona. Feel the sun on your legs and be free from stubborn fat and skin deposits with our thigh lift procedure. Our top plastic surgeons Dr. Aldo Guerra and Dr. Scott Ogley specialize in thigh lift surgery in Scottsdale, AZ.
Loose skin on the inner thighs is a common cosmetic issue among men and women who have lost a significant amount of weight–whether through bariatric surgery or diet and exercise–and among individuals with aging-induced elasticity loss. This loose, excess skin not only lowers confidence and self-esteem, but also causes discomfort. Furthermore, no matter how many steps a person takes or how many salads they eat, sometimes, fat throughout the thigh area refuses to budge, causing painful chafing when the inner thighs rub against each other.
A thigh lift in Scottsdale can reduce excess skin and fat on the inner thighs to restore a slimmer, tauter, and more youthful lower body contour. This procedure can also remove excesses up to the knees. Once complete, thigh lift patients can finally wear the breezy bottoms they never thought of wearing before surgery.
Instead of looking for a fashionable cover-up that drapes low enough to conceal your thighs and legs, maybe it’s time to take matters into the hands of a skilled plastic surgeon. Consider these advantages of a thigh lift procedure at Guerra Plastic Surgery Center:
In the first 48 to 72 hours following your thigh lift, you are likely to experience a tight sensation in the area that underwent surgery. During this time, you will also experience general soreness, swelling, and bruising. You can manage any pain or discomfort by taking your prescription pain medication, and rest assured these symptoms will dissipate within 3 to 5 weeks after surgery. Most of our patients see immediate results, including smoother, tighter, more youthful thighs and legs. However, the final results may take a few months before becoming fully visible.
Our top plastic surgeons specialize in several types of thigh lift surgeries for patients looking to improve the appearance of lax skin, excessive fat, and dimpled tissue in the thighs. Depending on the severity of your condition and the goals you have for postoperative results, different types of thighplasty procedures are available. These include:
A medial thigh lift corrects cosmetic issues in the inner thighs. This procedure necessitates an incision at the inguinal ligament (groin fold). Your cosmetic surgeon will literally lift the skin and tissue in your thigh to tighten the region.
To perform this procedure, your thighplasty surgeon in Scottsdale will need to create an incision beginning at the groin and extending around the hip. An outer thigh lift is ideal for patients who have lost weight and now need to tighten the loose skin that remained post-weight loss. In some cases, the procedure can target both the outer and inner regions of the thigh, as well as the front and back of the thigh.
A vertical thigh lift allows your plastic surgeon to remove significant amounts of loose skin and fat deposits. This procedure begins with a vertical incision made at the crease of the groin until the inner knee. Your surgeon will follow this with removing a wedge of skin from the inner thighs, resulting in a slender, tighter, more toned appearance.
There are some cases when one type of thighplasty alone is unable to correct the problem. In this scenario, the integration of two or more thigh lift types can deliver the patient’s desired results.

You can enjoy the results of a thigh lift for many years by maintaining a stable weight and keeping up with a healthy lifestyle. Inevitably, your body will lose firmness with age, but a majority of the improvement will remain.
Tightening the skin can help improve the appearance of cellulite on your thighs. However, a thigh lift alone cannot remove these “dimples” because they are structural to the skin.
Yes. You must stop smoking at least 6 weeks before and 6 weeks after any body contouring procedure. Smoking narrows the blood vessels and results in insufficient blood flow, which puts your safety at risk during surgery. Using tobacco products also contributes to poor wound healing, causing more significant post-operative scarring.
Many patients who seek a thigh lift following significant weight loss also have excess skin in the abdomen. In this case, thighplasty can be performed in combination with abdominoplasty and liposuction to produce balanced results.
