Thigh Lift


A thigh lift is a body contouring procedure often performed after dramatic weight loss, such as that which accompanies bariatric surgery, and is intended to remove excess skin and lingering fat from the thighs for smoother skin and natural-looking contours.


If you’re bothered by the appearance and discomfort of sagging skin around the thighs, Salem plastic surgeons Dr. Keith C. Neaman and Dr. Dustin Christiansen can help you determine if a thigh lift is right for you and recommend a custom treatment plan to address your unique needs. To schedule your personal consultation, please call Neaman Plastic Surgery at 844-338-5445.

Your Thigh Lift Procedure

Surgical approaches to thigh lifts vary and are customized based on individual factors such as the amount of excess skin, the affected areas of your thighs, and your skin tone. Liposuction is sometimes performed in conjunction with thigh lifts to remove stubborn fat deposits and further refine the contours of the upper legs.


The incisions used in thigh lifts are typically medial (made along the inner line of the thighs) or lateral (made along the outer region of the thighs to allow for the buttocks to be lifted and contoured with the thighs). Excess skin is removed and remaining skin is tightened and contoured.

Your Thigh Lift Results

Although you will experience some temporary bruising and swelling following your thigh lift, the refined appearance and firmer skin tone will be immediately evident. Dr. Neaman will discuss your expectations with you in detail; in most cases, the residual scars from thigh lifts are easily concealed.


Because the loose, excess skin that remains following substantial weight loss can impact other areas of your body, many patients benefit from a thigh lift as part of a body lift. A body lift may also include an arm lift or other complementary contouring procedures.
