The Best Candidates For A Thigh Lift
For people who have lost a lot of weight or those who have sagging skin on their thighs because of aging, Dr. Wallace can perform a thigh lift. A thigh lift offers a more toned and taut appearance and sometimes, Dr. Wallace may recommend that liposuction be done at the same time if excess fat needs to be removed from the area as well. If you have excess fat and skin on your thighs or if you want to get a thigh gap, you may be a great candidate for a thigh lift.
How to get a Thigh Gap?
A thigh gap is simply the space between your upper thighs. Some people have one naturally, due to their body shape or the size of their thighs. Others would like to get a thigh gap, both for cosmetic reasons and to reduce the discomfort felt when the thighs rub together. In most cases, diet and exercise alone aren’t enough to help you get that coveted space between your thighs. If you have loose thigh muscle and skin, as well as excess fat, a thigh lift with Dr. Wallace may be the very best way to get the shape of a thigh gap that you want. Call and set up your consultation now to find out more about how you can get a thigh gap.

The Thigh Lift Procedure
The procedure is an outpatient procedure, which takes up to two to three hours. You will be given general anesthesia or “twilight” sedation. Dr. Wallace will make an incision at the junction of the inner thigh and the pubic area so that excess skin and fat can be removed and the remaining skin tightened. You will have two drainage tubes in place, and these will be removed one to two weeks after surgery. The tubes are needed to remove excess fluid that your body produces in response to surgery.
How Much Does A Thigh Lift Cost?
For your convenience, we accept cash, check, Visa®, MasterCard®, American Express® and Discover®. We also provide financing options via Prosper® Healthcare Lending.
After Your Thigh Lift Surgery
Dr. Wallace will prescribe pain medication for a few days after your procedure is done. You can expect to see some minor swelling and bruising in the weeks after the procedure, which will disappear over a few weeks. Dr. Wallace will advise you about how long you will need to take off work. It is likely to be at least a week but will depend on the nature of your work. Dr. Wallace will advise you to refrain from strenuous activity, including running and other types of exercise, for four to six weeks.
Getting Back to Normal Following Your Thigh Lift
As you get back to normal, and your recovery progresses, your results will start to emerge once the swelling subsides. Scars are generally minimal and well hidden by clothing, and therapies, such as laser, may minimize the visibility of any scars. Most patients see the final results from their surgery within 12 months.
