Leg Lift

Get the legs you've always dreamed of.


Considering a Leg Lift?

Ever worked hard to lose the extra weight, but then been left with a lot of excess skin? This can happen all over the body, from the arms, to the tummy, to the legs — and it can be super disappointing.

A lift leg simply removes the excess, sagging skin so you can show off those legs again!

Our leg lift tones and smooths your upper legs through an assortment of cosmetic techniques. Unfortunately, they're prone to various conditions that can obscure the natural contour of your upper legs. Cellulite, fatty tissue deposits, and loose skin from weight loss or aging can all affect an otherwise healthy individual. In these cases, diet and exercise may or may not be effective.

How does it work? Leg Lift reshapes your upper legs by removing excess skin to attain a tighter, younger look. While the leg lift isn’t a stand-in for significant weight loss, liposuction may also be used to remove unwanted fat deposits. The leg lift can be performed via several methods. The exact procedure depends upon your body type, and the results you want to achieve.

Candidates for this procedure generally fit the following criteria:

  • Have excess skin and fat deposits along thighs
  • Have a stable body weight
  • Do not currently smoke
  • Drink in moderation
  • Can continue living a healthy lifestyle after surgery

What You Need to Know

Dr. Sult will use one of, or a combination of, the following techniques to reshape the contour of your upper legs. Either a local or general anesthesia will be used depending on the method.

Inner: A small incision is made where the inner thigh and pubic area are joined. Excess skin is removed through the opening, and any fat deposits are vacuumed out via liposuction. The incision placement allows the eventual scar to be hidden by underwear.

Mini: The incision site is placed similarly to the inner thigh lift. However, the mini thigh lift is only intended to smooth out the upper third of the thighs, so the results are less pronounced.

Bilateral: This method is used to remove excess skin along the front and sides of the upper legs. The incision begins on the outer pubic area, and can stretch around to the hips or buttocks depending on desired results. This technique can also lift and smooth out skin on the inner thighs and buttocks.

Medial: The medial lift targets the inner thigh's upper portion. An incision is made near the front of the groin that extends under to the buttocks. Vertical incisions running a few inches down the leg may also be used to assist in smoothing out sagging skin and removing fatty tissues.


You Should Consider a Leg Lift If...

You should consider a leg lift if you want your legs to have a firmer look and more proportional contour. If you have had massive weight loss and have excess saggy skin. If you are unhappy with the look of your legs due to loose or saggy skin. Or, if you have difficulty fitting into clothing because of thick legs.


It's vital to keep incisions covered and clean after surgery to avoid infections. You'll be given a special compression garment to stabilize the incision sites. Only light activity is permitted during the first week. Afterward, a return to work can be made, but strenuous activity should be avoided for another 6-8 weeks. Swelling and bruising should have subsided by this point. Once you've passed the 2-3 month benchmark, you can finally expose your upper legs to sunlight without risk of complications.


Initial improvements are first noticeable once bruising and swelling have died down. It will, however, take up to one year for the expected results to fully manifest. Scars that have been faithfully treated will be faded by this point. The results of a thigh lift are generally considered permanent with the right maintenance. Maintaining a stable body weight after surgery helps to guarantee long-lasting results.
