Thigh/Buttock Lift in Washington DC

Chevy Chase Thigh Lift (Inner and Outer Thighs) – Weight gain followed by weight loss can leave you with extra hanging skin and fat on your thighs and buttock area. Some physical problems that can occur as a result is irritation and chafing if the skin is hanging, or you may be limited in what clothes you can wear. A thigh lift procedure can help tone and refine your legs resulting in a more shapely appearance. For patients who have had a significant weight loss or have poor skin tone due to the normal aging process, a thigh lift can provide a tighter and more attractive skin and contour to the upper legs. The skin’s surface will appear smoother.

You may be a candidate for a Lateral Thigh and Buttock Lift if:

  • Loose skin and localized fat exists on your thighs and buttocks after massive weight loss.
  • You’re looking to remove extra skin and fat from your thighs and buttock area in order to lift and firm the area.
  • To enhance self-image and confidence
Note that a Lateral Thigh and Buttock Lift may also be combined with Liposuction, Circumferential Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty), Arm Lifts, Belt Lifts, Bariatric surgery, and other Body Contouring procedures.
