New Jersey Thigh Lift Lift Surgery
Located in Paramus, Bergen County
WHAT IS A THIGH LIFT?
A thigh lift, or thighplasty, is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of loose skin caused from aging or dramatic weight loss, including fatty areas that are especially resistant to typical weight-loss methods. Loose skin and your inability to shed excess weight in the inner and outer thighs can lead to unsightly contours, leaving your body disproportionate and you feeling self-conscious about your thigh’s shape. These factors can also cause physical discomfort due to rubbing or chafing during daily walks and other physical activities. Through a combination of liposuction and excision (tissue removal), a thigh lift performed by Dr. Robert Zubowski or Dr. Brad Gandolfi will dramatically improve the width and body shape of your thighs to create a slimmer, more youthful appearance.
During your initial visit at our center you will work with Dr. Zubowski or Dr. Gandolfi to customize a thorough thigh lift plan based upon your aesthetic vision. You can also expect to receive an overview of relevant surgical techniques. At this first consultation Dr. Zubowski or Dr. Gandolfi will determine the size and location of the proposed incision by evaluating the parts of skin to be removed and tightened, and the amount of fat to be expunged. Dr. Zubowski or Dr. Gandolfi will also evaluate your medical history, prior procedures, motivation for your procedure, skin condition and body frame.
HOW IS AN INNER THIGH LIFT PERFORMED?
An inner or medial thigh lift addresses loose skin and fatty tissue on the inner slope of the thigh. Dr. Zubowski or Dr. Gandolfi will make an incision at the lowest point of the crease between the groin and the inner thigh, where he will then remove sagging skin in the thigh areas and perform liposuction if any fat requires removal. For extensive weight loss patients, Dr. Zubowski or Dr. Gandolfi will make a vertical incision along the inner thigh as well to achieve additional correction.
HOW IS AN OUTER THIGH LIFT PERFORMED?
For patients with excess loose skin and fat on the lateral sides of the thigh and backside, an outer thigh lift involves an incision along the top of the pelvic bone on each side. Each incision may extend horizontally as far as the center of your body. Excess skin and fat is then pulled up towards the incision, which tightens the skin along both sides of the leg; then the excess skin and fat is removed. To keep visible signs of surgery to a minimum, incisions are hidden in the natural contours of the body..
Dr. Zubowski and Dr. Gandolfi use the most innovative surgical techniques available in plastic surgery and safely combines procedures like a thigh lift with abdominoplasty and a buttock augmentation to maximize results and create an aesthetic balance with the contours and shape of your figure.
