Thigh Lift

Weight loss, aging and gravity can cause sagging skin of the thighs, and this can be a source of significant embarrassment for many women. The skin becomes less elastic over time, and the appearance can be uneven and floppy. If you are interested in tightening the skin of your thighs and improving their contour, Dr. McIntosh can help by performing a thigh lift in Bellevue. Read about the procedure below and give us a call today to schedule your initial consultation.


How is a Thigh Lift Performed?

Depending on how severe the skin excess is, the surgical treatment plan will be tailored to your specific needs and goals. Dr. McIntosh can place an incision in the groin crease to pull excess skin upward, or the incision can also extend down the inner thigh to the knee in order to tighten the thigh skin circumferentially as well. Often liposuction will also be needed to best contour the thighs. The incisions are closed with dissolving sutures under the skin. The surgery takes 3 to 4 hours, and the recovery lasts 1 to 2 weeks. Patients will be bathing suit ready and have their confidence back after this procedure.

Our Bellevue patients have experienced amazing results from the thigh lift procedures performed by Dr. McIntosh. If you are looking to tighten your floppy, sagging thighs, give us a call to schedule your consultation.
