Thigh Lift

In Tucson, AZ



What Is A Thigh Lift?

In some cases, individuals who make it to their ideal weight may end up with extra skin that wasn't able to mold to the smaller size and shape of their bodies. When this happens, an additional step can be taken to amend this problem. The thighs in particular are an area of concern for most people so board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. James Rough offers surgical thigh lifts (also known as thighplasty) at James Rough, M.D. Plastic Surgery. A thigh lift trims away extra skin on the outer and inner thighs to create a firmer, more contoured look. Thigh lift surgery has increased in popularity because it can give natural-looking results for patients who don't want sagging skin on the thighs. Call our Tucson, AZ practice to schedule a consultation to see if you might be a candidate for a thigh lift.


How Is A Thigh Lift Performed?

For a thigh lift, general anesthesia is typically administered. A surgical incision is made near the top portion of the thigh in the natural crease where the thigh meets the torso. This incision often extends down to the midsection of the thigh. This allows enough room to perform MicroAire® power-assisted liposuction, if needed, to remove stubborn pockets of fat and trim the loose skin at the upper thigh. The skin will be stretched upward so it can be tightened and safely secured with sutures. In some patients, an additional incision may be necessary for the outer thigh area or underneath the buttocks based on the amount of tissue being removed. Thigh lift surgery can leave your thighs with a tighter, shapelier, more contoured appearance.

Dr. Rough and his entire staff are incredible. From start to finish, they are compassionate, empathetic, and thorough. From the consult to the operation I felt I was taken care of by professional, genuinely caring people. I’ve had a few cosmetic surgeries and I always get sick from the anesthesia, Dr. Rough’s anesthesiologist is the most wonderful sweet human being I’ve ever met. Everyone that is on his team is amazing and just as sweet. You will be in good hands with anything Dr. Rough does. I am writing this review day of surgery and I am feeling great. I highly recommend Dr. James Rough if you are looking for a skilled and caring surgeon with a team that will take care of you from start to finish. I cannot wait for my results!

Thigh Lift FAQs

How much does thigh lift surgery cost?

Your cost for a thigh lift will include many fees, including those for the surgical facility, tests, anesthesia, and more. Once Dr. Rough has developed your personal thigh lift treatment plan in your consultation, he can then estimate your costs. James Rough, M.D. Plastic Surgery will help you find low-interest financing, which can help make your thigh lift easy to afford, so you can concentrate on getting the results you want.

Will a thigh lift remove cellulite or stretch marks?

A thigh lift is a great way to achieve nicely contoured and slimmer legs. Since a thigh lift calls for tightening the skin and correcting stubborn fat deposits, it also improves the appearance of cellulite or other stretch marks on your upper legs. If you are interested in addressing cellulite or stretch marks, let Dr. Rough know during your consultation so he can adjust your surgical plan to fit all of your goals.

How long will my thigh lift results last?

After your surgery, if you follow a healthy lifestyle that includes regular exercise and a balanced diet, you should maintain your thigh lift results for many years. Dr. Rough advises you be at or near a healthy weight before surgery so it's easy to keep your results. Pregnancy or significant weight changes after a thighplasty can alter your appearance. In your consultation, Dr. Rough will give you advice on what you can do to make your thigh lift results last longer.
