The primary goal of a thigh lift is to help mold or re-shape the thighs so they are more in proportion with your legs, buttocks and abdomen. The procedure will help the front of the thighs look smoother, the inner thigh will be firm and flat and the muscles in thigh area will be more highlighted as well as a distinct fold that separates the thigh and the buttock.
Thigh Lift Surgery
Thigh lift surgery is additionally beneficial for someone who has lost a lot of excess weight, either through weight loss surgery or diet and exercise. When you lose a large amount of weight, there is typically excess skin, especially in the thigh area. This type of aesthetic procedure will typically help weight-loss patients feel better about their bodies.
Types of Procedures
There are several different types of incisions that can be made for a thigh lift:
A vertical thighplasty is done to remove the excess skin from the inner thigh area.
A ‘T’ shaped incision can be used to decrease the amount of skin in a horizontal and vertical directions.
Outer thigh lifts are done to remove excess skin from the hip to the groin area and are typically performed in conjunction with a belt lipectomy or tummy tuck procedure.It is important to keep in mind that if the procedure recommended for your particular needs includes removal of fat, it is not a surgery intended to specifically target fat deposits, but to remove only small fat amounts in the area of the thigh lift. Before Dr. Nazarian will provide a thigh lift, she will examine you to determine if you are a good candidate for the surgery and explain the procedure in detail, including other options that may be available, if you also want extra fat removed.

She is wonderful and very caring thru the whole process. Thanks Dr.for changing my appearance and helping me with every question I had. I totally recommend her to anyone who is looking for an excellent Dr. If I would of known about her before, I would of done this procedure years ago.This is my first time writing a review, but I had to share this experience because I know there are people looking for a good Dr they can trust. I am truly very happy with Dr . Nazarian. Again thank you very much for doing such a great job.
Dr. Nazarian is the a 5 star plastic surgeon! I had a growing scalp mass above my left ear, kinda like a cyst, she told me it was called lipoma. Anyway she removed the cyst in her office even when I was told by other doctors that it had to be done at a hospital which is more cost full and inconvenient for your wallet. She’s a great doctor and definitely recommend anyone to visit her office, her receptionist is on point and is very kind, helpful, and welcoming when visiting the office or calling about your appointment.
Besides being a great surgeon, Dr Nazarian carries a line for PREGNANT women called Spa Momma which is made-in-the-USA with no lead, phthalates, formaldehyde, propylene glycol, and no pregnancy-contraindicated aromatherapy oils!!!!!! I am obsessed with the body oil and the body scrub! I was having some major itching issues and I tried everything but nothing really helped. Then I tried the itchies body oil and it was the first relief I had had in months and I have no stretch marks!!!!!!!! Dr Nazarian is so up to date and science based and is willing to take time and help you out no matter what you issue is!!! I love her professionalism and recommend 110%!
