After undergoing a massive weight loss, many Beverly Hills men and women find themselves with an excess of loose and sagging skin on their inner and outer thighs. Having this excess of skin can make it difficult to not only find complimenting clothing, but also to engage in a range of activities such as running, bike riding and in some cases day to day activities. Even with diet and exercise, some people are simply unable to get their skin to bounce back to its original orientation. In some minor cases, Dr. Tahernia can use liposuction to remove excess pockets of fat, but for patients that have lost a lot of skin elasticity; a thigh lift is the procedure that will get them toned looking legs.

During your consultation, Dr. Tahernia will order a variety of preoperative tests to ensure that you are a healthy candidate to undergo surgery.
Thigh Lift Techniques:
The outer thigh and inner thigh require the use of different surgical techniques in order to best conceal the incisions. For the outer thigh, Dr. Tahernia will use a waist line incision so that the scar can be concealed along the bikini line. The excess skin from the upper thigh is then removed and the remaining skin is then tightened and smoothed. For the inner thigh, an incision is made high up on the inner thigh along the elastic line of where a bikini would hit. The large amount of excess inner thigh skin is then removed and the remaining skin is tightened and smoothed.
