THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROCEDURE IS TO CREATE FIRMER, MORE ATTRACTIVE THIGHS AND BUTTOCKS WITH IMPROVED CONTOURS, WHILE REDUCING IRREGULARITIES ON THE SURFACE OF THE SKIN.

What is a thigh lift?

The plastic surgery for the thighs (thigh lift) is possible when the individual has an excess of skin and unpleasant fat on the thighs. The lift helps define and lift the thighs by removing the skin on the upper leg.

THE IDEAL CANDIDATE

Dr. Zadeh recommends plastic surgery for the thighs for individuals in good physical health, following pregnancy, significant weight loss, or loss of elasticity due to aging and who are dissatisfied with the appearance of their flabby thighs. This procedure may be considered if the skin on the thighs hangs or has an appearance of orange peel. During the consultation with Dr. Zadeh, he will evaluate and determine if you’re a good candidate for a thigh lift.

The PROCEDURE

In order to meet the individual desires of each patient, there are a lot of options available to you when it comes to incisions. Excess skin and fat are removed, and the residual tissue is tightened and lifted. Sometimes Dr. Zadeh recommends liposuction to achieve a better result.
