If you would like to remove hanging skin and fatty deposits on your thighs, we suggest having a plastic surgery consultation with our double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Bill Aydin, in Paramus, NJ or White Plains, NY. The appearance of your thighs can be drastically transformed with a thigh lift, or thighplasty, when the skin is excised and tightened for a firmer, toned appearance. Maturing skin and thighs that have lost a significant amount of weight will lose its skin elasticity. Diet and exercise will help improve the contour of the inner and/or outer thigh, but will not address hanging skin. Consult with Aydin Plastic Surgery if you would like to have gorgeous thighs again.
"Best Decision I Ever Made in my Life, I Have Never Looked Better! - Paramus, NJ - Dr Aydin is the best Plastic Surgeon and I will NEVER use anyone but him if I ever need any work done again. I had a full tummy tuck, lipo sculpting for fat transfer and I am so grateful for Dr Aydin! I look better now, then most 18yr olds and I just turned 40 with 3 kids! You know a Doctor is good when 2 of your friends go to him after they see your results. He has also done my botox, my friends botox, he removed a Callus on my finger, he cut it out and the scar looks like the natural line on my finger, he is REMARKABLE! I trust him with my life, I know he knows exactly what a woman wants and he makes that a realty. Dr Aydin and his team, are unlike any other, they took care of me, he called to check on me all the time, he took his time when he was doing my surgery (most doctors rush), he made sure his work was perfect (he is a perfectionist), he even made a house call, there is no Doctor like Dr Aydin and I am so grateful for all he did to help me look amazing! ??

Thighplasty is performed to enhance the looks of the inner thigh and/or outer thigh. During this procedure, an incision will be made near the top of the thigh (along the crease where the torso meets the leg) and ends at the inner aspect of the thigh. A large amount of tissue is removed from the top inner thigh area while the remaining skin is pulled up, tightened and secured with sutures. This process reshapes the thighs, providing them a tighter, more contoured appearance.
A combination of lower body contouring procedures, in addition to a thigh lift, can be combined to create a tighter lower body. A thigh lift and a butt lift are the most common combination. Some patients who are advised to have an outer thigh lift will generally need to have their butt lifted as well. With this, the outer thighs are pulled up and tightened with an incision that is made along the bottom of the buttock area. An incision can also be made around the lower back. This allows the surgeon to address the upper thighs, buttock and hips in one surgery. This is commonly known as a lower body lift.
Thigh lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia in an accredited surgical facility. The surgery takes an average of 2 to 3 hours to complete, but could take longer if combined with another procedure. The recovery period typically takes about 6 – 8 weeks. Scars will also be a part of the procedure. Proper scar care is needed for the scar to heal safely. Patients find their self-confidence improve after surgery with the enhanced contour of their thighs.

Thigh Lift FAQs
Thigh lift is the best choice to achieve nicely contoured and slimmer legs. Because the procedure calls for skin tightening and liposuction in cases of excessive fat deposits, it also improves the appearance of cellulites or other skin irregularities on the upper legs.
Because this surgery is invasive, it is recommended that patients limit strenuous activities until fully recovered. Patients may go back to a normal (light) routine 3 to 4 weeks after surgery. Exercise should wait until about 6-8 weeks post-op. When all wounds are completely healed, patients may begin lower body moves such as lunges or squats.
Patients who adhere to a healthy lifestyle that includes a proper diet and exercise routine will enjoy their surgical results for years. Pregnancy or any additional weight gain after this surgery could compromise the overall surgical effect. It is also advised that patients be at or near their goal weight before surgery.
