What Is A Thigh Lift?

A Thigh Lift, or Thighplasty, is a surgical procedure in Boston designed to reshape and contour the thighs. It involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the inner and outer thighs, resulting in a smoother, firmer, and more toned appearance.


Thigh Lifts can address concerns such as loose and sagging skin, excess fat deposits, and poor thigh contour due to aging, weight loss, or genetic factors. The procedure can help improve the overall proportions of the thighs, enhance body confidence, and restore a more youthful silhouette.

Medial Thigh Lift

Also known as an inner thigh lift, is the most common form of this cosmetic surgery and uses a surgical incision made in the inner thigh along the line where the leg meets the groin.

Vertical Thigh Lift

If you’re looking to address a lot of excess skin in all areas of your thighs, you may consider a vertical thigh lift. It requires larger incisions that begin at your groin and extend down to your knees.

Bilateral Thigh Lift

An outer thigh lift requires an incision to be made from the groin around the back of the body so that the buttocks are lifted along with the thigh.

Mini Thigh Lift

This procedure requires fewer incisions than other types of thigh lifts, only involving an incision in your groin area. It works well if you want to focus on the upper-inner part of your thigh only.

What Are The Benefits Of A Thigh Lift?

A Thigh Lift procedure offers several benefits to individuals who are looking to improve the appearance of their thighs. These benefits include:


  • Enhanced thigh contour
  • Improved body proportions
  • Increased self-confidence
  • Clothing options
  • Long-lasting results

Who Are The Best Candidates For A Thigh Lift?

The best candidates for a Thigh Lift are individuals who are in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the procedure. They may exhibit one or more of the following characteristics:


  • Excess skin and fat in the thigh area
  • Stable weight
  • Non-smokers
  • Good overall health
  • Realistic expectations

During the Thigh Lift surgery, Dr. Tandon focuses on eliminating excess fat and sagging skin from the thigh area. The choice of technique and incision placement will be determined by the particular areas of your thighs that require reshaping.
