A thigh lift is offered by Dr. Sofonio at his state-of-the-art private clinic in Rancho Mirage, providing services to the entire region – including Palm Springs and beyond. This custom surgical procedure will enhance the shape of overly heavy thighs for a firm and sculpted look.

The Thigh Lift Procedure

During your private consultation with Dr. Sofonio, you will be able to speak with him about the procedure, your treatment options, and your recovery time.

We invite you to talk to us openly about your aesthetic vision for your body and the results you hope to achieve. Your treatment plan will be customized specifically for you.

General anesthesia is commonly administered for a thigh lift, but some patients may be comfortable with intravenous sedation and local anesthesia.

The length and location of the incisions are based on the area of the thigh that needs treatment. but usually, they are made around the groin and may extend to the hips.

To make the thighs proportional to the body, the underlying tissues are repositioned, and the excess skin and fat is reduced and tightened. The incisions will be closed using deep-support sutures, and the entire procedure will be completed on an outpatient basis in a few hours. However, when large amounts of fat and skin are removed, you may be required to stay overnight in the hospital.

Thigh Lift Recovery: What’s Involved?

To prevent infection and promote faster healing, you will need to follow the incision care instructions you will be provided.  Swelling and bruising can be expected but are minimized by wearing the compression garment for several weeks.

The recovery time can vary, as every patient heals at a different rate, and your surgery may involve an inner thigh lift, outer thigh lift, or both. Generally, you can expect the most challenging days of your recovery to be in the first week, after which the bruising and swelling fade and the incisions begin to heal. You will need to avoid vigorous exercise for four to six weeks and take all medications as directed. We will be monitoring your progress throughout your recovery and are always available to you.

Your Results – a More Balanced, Sculpted Figure

The results from the thigh lift will be readily visible after the treatment, but the improvements in body contour will become more noticeable when the swelling and bruising have disappeared. After the thigh lift, the thighs will become slimmer, and the skin will be firmer.
