Thigh Lift


The thighs are natural reservoirs for excess fat and therefore more skin. If you lose weight, you will likely lose fat in the thighs and be left with excess skin in the area. To remove excess or sagging thigh skin, consider a thigh lift. Michael Schwartz, M.D., is a board-certified facial plastic surgeon and diplomate of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery who offers the thigh lift to women and men who live in and around Los Angeles, Pasadena and the surrounding communities of California.

What is a Thigh Lift?

If you’ve done the hard work that goes into weight loss, it’s no wonder that you want to look and feel your best. At the end of a weight loss journey, you may have shed pounds, fat and insecurity, but excess skin can remain. When sagging skin is your last barrier to the body you want and deserve, a thigh lift can help.

A thigh lift is a surgical procedure which removes excess skin and fat from the thigh. The result is an increase in tone, texture and contour in the thighs. Thigh lifts are most commonly performed on individuals whom have undergone significant weight loss and/or bariatric surgery.

What is the Thigh Lift procedure?

The thigh lift procedure is customizable to your body, current skin and weight. Dr. Schwartz will determine his course of action for your thigh lift at your initial consultation. Thigh lifts involve removing excess skin and fat from the inner thigh area and then pulling the skin taut around the thigh. The incision is planned in the inner thigh and least noticeable area.

How is the recovery following a Thigh Lift?

Our office will work with you at your consultation to help you best prepare for a fast and healthy recovery. Following your consultation, you will know what to expect during and after your surgical appointment. Your results will begin to develop immediately, but will be optimal in a few months.

Am I A Good Candidate for a Thigh Lift?

There are very specific requirements for thigh lift candidacy. Individuals that best qualify for this procedure are:

  • At a stable, healthy weight
  • Individuals who have experienced significant weight loss
  • In good overall health
  • Unhappy with pockets of fat on the inner or outer thigh
  • Frustrated by sagging skin on the thighs

How Much Does a Thigh Lift Cost in Pasadena, CA?
