At his Houston practice, triple board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Henry Mentz performs thigh lifts to remove excess skin from the inner and outer thigh so you can have a smooth, slender legs that match your lower body. In some cases, liposuction may be included, most often on the inner thigh, to remove stubborn pockets of fat that may prevent smooth results.

Surgical Technique

A medial thigh lift restores a firmer, proportionate appearance to sagging inner thighs. The incision placement for this procedure depends upon the extent of excess skin and fat that must be removed. For patients with a moderate amount of excess skin, the incision is commonly placed in the groin fold. When the amount of excess tissue is more significant, an incision may be necessary along the length of the inner thigh.

Best Candidates?

Many candidates for thigh lift surgery have one of the following concerns:

  • Loose, sagging skin on the inner or outer thighs
  • Thighs that are disproportionate to the rest of the body
  • Tight clothes do not fit your legs
  • Insecurities about the appearance of your legs

Inner or Outer Lift?

Most patients will need either an inner thigh lift or an outer thigh lift, but in some cases, both may be performed. In these cases, a lower body lift is usually considered to improve the contours and proportions of your hips, stomach, and legs.

Lift and Lipo?

A thigh lift is performed to remove excess skin and small amounts of fat, but more extensive liposuction can be added if the patients needs it. During the consultation, Dr. Mentz will discuss the patient’s concerns and goals and together they will come up with their best treatment plan.
