Thigh Lift

Dr. Scott Sattler offers thighplasty and thigh lift surgery to Seattle area patients. With significant weight loss after bariatric surgery or via diet and exercise, the soft tissues of the arms, abdomen and thighs have a tendency to sag and droop. This fact can make the discipline and hard-work of diligent weight loss a disappointment for some patients.

What is a thigh lift ?

Thigh Lifts can remove excess skin from inside the thigh, on the outside of the thigh and even the knee. Thigh Lifts can include some liposuction to remove additional excess fat. The goal is to restore a more youthful contour to the thigh and lower leg. Each thigh lift is customized for the individual patient by Dr. Sattler in his Seattle area clinic.

How is thigh lift surgery done ?

During the procedure excess skin, fat and tissue is removed and the thigh tissues are tightened and smoothed. Dr. Sattler takes great care to place incisions in the inconspicuous locations that can be concealed beneath clothing. Thigh Lifts are performed under general anesthesia. All thigh lift surgery is done on an outpatient basis in our accredited, on-site surgical unit in the Seattle area.

During surgery, Dr. Sattler uses drainage tubes will be put in place (to help minimize swelling and get rid of excess fluids), and you will be put into a compression garment to be worn for several days (and may extend into a couple weeks.). Compression garments not only support your new shape and contour but also help to minimize swelling.

Recovery after thigh lift surgery

Dr. Sattler prescribes antibiotics and pain medication for a few days after the surgery. Most people take about two weeks off from work and it will be important to not drive during that time, as well. You should be back to most normal activities in six weeks and strenuous activities shortly after that.

Dr. Sattler performs thigh lift surgery and thighplasty for weight loss patients in the Seattle, Tacoma, Bellevue, Edmonds and Mountlake Terrace areas.
