Achieve Slimmer Legs with a Thigh Lift
If you have been seeking a safe, effective treatment to improve the shape and appearance of your thighs, it is imperative to find a highly skilled professional with proven results. Dr. Stephen P. Hardy is renowned for his ability to perform several types of thigh lifts at his Missoula, MT, practice. Undergoing thigh lift surgery at Northwest Plastic Surgery Associates can result in more toned legs by eliminating excess tissue and skin. Dr. Hardy can also perform liposuction in conjunction with your thigh lift procedure.
We offer four types of thigh lifts that can be performed on their own, or in conjunction with other body contouring procedures, to achieve an all-over body transformation.
Thigh Lift Procedures
During your initial consultation, Dr. Hardy will discuss your medical history and aesthetic goals, then work with you to plan a customized thigh lift procedure. We offer four types of thigh lifts that can be performed on their own, or in conjunction with other body contouring procedures, to achieve an all-over body transformation:
- Outer Thigh Lift: Also known as a bilateral thigh lift, the outer thigh lift involves making an incision along the upper thigh, near the bottom of your underwear line. Liposuction and tissue removal is performed, and the skin is pulled tighter and carefully cut to create firmer thighs. This procedure targets the fat and skin on the front and outside of the leg and is beneficial for patients who have excessive sagging skin from extreme weight loss.
- Inner Thigh Lift: Dr. Hardy will make a discreet incision where the thigh meets the groin, along the underwear line, removing excess skin and fat. If necessary, he will first perform liposuction, and then trim and tighten the remaining skin for improved natural-looking leg contours.
- Medial Thigh Lift: Dr. Hardy will make an incision from the groin to the buttocks, following the natural crease below the buttocks. After the incisions are made, he will lift and remove the excess tissue, tightening the remaining skin. Patients who have excess skin from aging or extreme weight loss, or who desire more contouring than an inner thigh lift offers, may benefit from this type of thigh lift.
- Mini Thigh Lift: A mini thigh lift is a good option if you are experiencing sagging tissue in the upper third of the leg. Dr. Hardy will make a small, short incision in the groin, through which he will remove excess skin and tissue. This procedure involves a quick recovery time and minimal scarring.
