Do I Qualify For Thigh Lift Surgery?

Thigh Lift Surgery | Dr. Roussalis | Plastic Surgery Newark

There are many things that can contribute to having excess skin on the upper part of your thighs. It could accumulate as you age, from weight loss, or even excessive sun exposure. When you have this loose, saggy skin it can be hard to wear certain items of clothing you wish you could. There are many exercises you can do to try and tighten the area, but loose skin can be a tricky thing to get rid of. Dr. Roussalis offers a thigh lift surgery that may be the answer to all of your problems.

The Right Candidate

A thigh lift is performed to get rid of excess skin and contour the legs, giving them a more defined look. A thigh lift is intended for those who are generally in good shape. Once the procedure is performed, gaining excess weight can reverse the outcome of the surgery. It is recommended that all candidates have realistic outcomes for this procedure. Talk to Dr. Roussalis about your goals and potential outcomes, so you can have a realistic image for your surgery.

The Procedure

The Inner or Medial Thigh Lift focuses more on the separation of the two thighs by removing excess skin. There are three ways the incisions for this procedure can be performed, based on the extent of skin and change you are looking to achieve.

  1. Incisions are made in the groin, extending downward and wrapping around the back of the thigh.
  2. An incision is made from the groin to the knee along the inseam.
  3. An incision is made in the groin area only.

The incision spots are strategically chosen by your surgeon to offer the best results, but still able to be hidden by most clothing.


Thigh lift procedures produce results immediately after surgery but can take several months for all results to develop. You can expect an improved quality of the skin and overall appearance.
