Thigh Lift in Fredericksburg, VA

What is a thigh lift?

Losing weight is an impressive accomplishment for any individual. In some cases, women and men who achieve their weight loss goals may require one more thing to complete their body transformation. Depending on how long you were overweight and how much weight you lost, extra skin can be a separate problem if the skin cannot shrink to your body's new shape and size. The thighs are particularly areas of concern for most people. Plastic surgeons Dr. Howard Heppe, Dr. Harold Bautista, and Dr. Pejman Aflaki offer thigh lift surgery (also called thighplasty) at Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg, which trims away loose skin on the inner and outer thighs to create a firmer, more contoured appearance. Thighplasty surgery has risen in popularity since it can give natural-looking results for patients battling sagging skin on the thighs.

How is a Thigh Lift Performed?

During thigh lift surgery, anesthesia is usually used. A surgical incision is made close to the top portion of the thigh in the natural crease where the thigh attaches to the torso. This incision typically continues down to the midpoint of the thigh area. This permits enough room to perform liposuction (if wanted) to eliminate isolated pockets of fat and to trim the excess skin in the upper thigh. The remaining skin will be stretched upward so it is tight and safely secured with sutures. In some instances, an additional incision may be made in the outer thigh area or underneath the buttocks, based on the quantity of skin and tissue removed. Thigh lift surgery at Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg corrects the entire thigh area for a tighter, shapelier, more contoured appearance.

Saw Dr. Bautista for breast augmentation and extremely pleased with my experience. He was patient with my questions and educated me on realistic results. I’m overwhelmingly happy with the outcome and without hesitation recommend him!

I had such a great experience here. Everyone in the office is so helpful and professional. I’ve had 5 large babies and had quite the muffin top situation going on. I can’t believe the difference the tummy tuck made. I’ve heard of other people traveling far away to get procedures done, but I’m super grateful we have such a high caliber plastic surgery office here in Fredericksburg!

I had a breast augmentation done in May and I could not be happier. Dr Heppe and his staff were very professional, helpful and supportive in making sure that what I wanted is what I got. I’ve waited my entire adult life for this surgery and would do it again with this team in a second. A+ all the way around!

The whole staff was amazing. I had a breast lift with augmentation and I love the results. I am no longer embarrassed about my chest. I also had filler under my eyes and everyone at work has commented on how rested I look. My only regret is I wish I would have done this procedure years ago.
