What is a Thigh Lift?
After weight loss or bariatric surgery, your skin may start to sag and lose its natural elasticity. An especially common area for lose skin is around the knees and over the thighs where gravity takes its toll. A thigh lift resolves this by addressing excess skin on several areas of the leg through an incision. Dr. Greer will discuss incision location will be best to smooth out the contour of your legs.

Dr. Greer can discuss your options for liposuction during your thigh lift consultation to see if it’s needed to help you achieve the body of your dreams!

While a thigh lift won’t give you back the legs of your twenties, especially if you’ve had weight loss above 100 pounds, it will still give you streamlined, taut legs that you’ll be proud to show off.

Dr. Greer will cover your recovery process with you in a consultation.
