Thigh & Buttock Lift

Home » Body » Thigh & Buttock Lift

For those who have lost a significant amount of weight through surgery or traditional weight loss, you shouldn’t let excess, sagging skin stop you from fully enjoying your results. With thigh and buttock lift surgery in Newport News and Williamsburg at Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads, we can help you tighten your skin and tone your lower body by removing excess skin and highlighting your shape and figure.

What Are Thigh
& Buttock Lift?

As we age and our body goes through cycles of weight gain and weight loss, the elasticity in our skin starts to decrease. For some, the thigh and buttock area is particularly impacted by this loss of elasticity, either due to age or as a side-effect of rapid weight loss. In these instances, loose skin can overshadow the shapely contour of your thighs and derriere, impacting your confidence and self-image. If this sounds like you, a thighplasty at the Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads might be just right for you.

A thighplasty, also known as a thigh & buttock lift, is a surgical procedure designed to lift and tighten loose skin, thereby improving the appearance, shape, and contour of the lower body. With artful surgical skills, our board-certified plastic surgeons in Hampton Roads can help you achieve the legs and buttocks of your dreams.

Am I a Candidate for Thigh & Buttock Lift?

Any lift procedure, whether it is in the thigh and buttock area, the abdomen, arms, or elsewhere, is designed specifically to tighten, contour, and smooth an area that suffers from loose or sagging skin. As such, only particular individuals are eligible for a thigh & buttock lift procedure, including those who:

  • Have lost skin elasticity in the thigh, hip, or buttocks
  • Have reached a stable weight
  • Have lost a dramatic amount of weight through diet and exercise or weight loss surgery
  • Have sagging, flabby, or dimpled thighs as a result of age
  • Are self-conscious about the appearance of their thighs and buttocks

Patient Testimonial

This is my second dealing with plastic surgery (the first was in Destin, FL). This experience was far better. The building is extremely clean and relaxing. The staff at PSCHR is so understanding and welcoming, it really helps to calm the nerves. I saw Dr. McArther and could not be happier. He is extremely knowledgeable and took the time to explain everything to me so that I understood what would work better for my body type. The biggest difference I saw between the two facilities that I went to was that PSCHR actually takes the time AFTER the surgery to check on your progress and even went as far as to send me flowers! With other businesses, they usually just forget you as soon as they get the money from you. I will be getting any further treatments through PSCHR and will definitely be recommending them!

Thigh & Buttock Lift Surgery in Hampton Roads

At Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads, thigh and buttock lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis unless otherwise advised based on personal health needs and the severity of the sagging to be corrected.

In this procedure, your surgeon will make careful, specifically placed incisions in and around the thigh and buttock area. The particular design or location of the incisions varies widely depending on your particular procedure, taking into account clothing and personal desires. To lift the inner thigh, short incisions are made from the anterior part of the thigh/groin crease to the crease of the buttock. Lateral or anterior thigh lifts can be performed as one procedure or two separate ones as desired. In lifting the buttock, the location of the incisions can be at the top or bottom depending on your preference.

After your procedure, you will be placed in a compression garment to help reduce swelling and protect your results post-surgery. In the following weeks, you should continue to wear this garment until the time specified by your surgeon. If you require oral pain medication to manage discomfort in the first few days after your surgery, your surgeon will provide you with any necessary prescriptions. It’s important to have a friend or family member in your household to help you during the first few days after surgery. Bruising and swelling are common but will usually subside within a month, and you can return to normal activity within 6-8 weeks.
