Many of our Houston and Lake Jackson patients find that, over time, signs of aging can develop that are not cosmetically desirable. While many men and women focus on more visible areas such as the face, many find that the most pressing area of focus is in their thighs.
A thigh lift can help remove some of the telltale signs of aging, particularly for those who have accumulated excess skin in the thigh region. In some cases the procedure may be paired with liposuction in order to contour a new profile for the area. At Town and Country Plastic Surgeons, our thigh lift procedures can help restore definition and slimmer contours in this area.

About Tight Lift
For many Houston and Lake Jackson patients, a thigh lift – or “thighplasty”, as it is sometimes known – is often sought when other non-surgical solutions have been explored. Even with diet and exercise, many men and women still retain excess fat and loose skin in the thigh areas. For others, the excess skin is a result of weight loss surgery resulting in a substantial reduction of volume in the thighs. In such instances, a thigh lift can offer a cosmetic improvement where even extensive programs of vigorous exercise have failed to do so.
Types of Thigh Lifts
There are two main types of thigh lifts: groin lift and full thigh lift. The groin lift involves a scar located in the groin crease. This procedure is for those with excess skin and fat located in the upper thigh. The scar extends throughout the groin crease which can be well camouflaged in most underwear. The full thigh lift involves a scar that extends from the groin to the medial knee. There is a more significant scar burden because this procedure is for those with significant skin excess along the full length of the thigh, such as those who have had weight loss surgery. Liposuction can be performed at the same time as a thigh lift for those who need or want this. Speak with our surgeons at Houston and Lake Jackson to see which procedure is right for you.

Ideal Candidates For A Thigh Lift?
While each patient has their own unique needs and concerns, we will typically look to identify some or all of the following to determine a good fit for the procedure:
- Does not smoke.
- Is generally healthy.
- Can maintain a healthy lifestyle following the procedure.
- Is realistic about the results anticipated.
Those who fit the above criteria will typically be deemed most likely to receive the best results from a thigh lift, and best physically suited for a fast and full recovery. Those who do not may be recommended alternative, non-surgical solutions, or encouraged to take on necessary corrective measures so that they may be later eligible.
