Dr. Anthony’s Surgical Technique
For thigh lift surgery, general anesthesia is commonly administered. An incision is placed close to the top portion of the leg, in the natural fold where the thigh attaches to the torso. The incision typically continues along to the midsection of the thigh, permitting enough space to perform surgical liposuction (if necessary), which eliminates stubborn pockets of fat and trims excess skin in the top thigh area.
The skin is then stretched upward, pulled tight, and secured with sutures. In some patients, an additional incision may be made underneath the butt or in the outer thigh area, depending on the quantity of skin and tissue being addressed. Thigh lift surgery at our San Francisco practice corrects the complete thigh area, for a tighter, shapelier, more contoured look.
