Marchant is ready to help you fight your “battle of the bulge.”

Inner thigh lift patients should refrain from any aerobic activity and lifting over 10 lbs for three to four weeks. Most patients return to more sedentary jobs within two to three weeks.

When patients are unhappy with the appearance of their inner thighs, they are encouraged to find that their problems can be rectified with an inner thigh lift. To perform an inner thigh lift, Dr. Marchant makes incisions on the inner thighs through which he will remove excess fat and skin. The majority of thigh lifts can be performed through an incision hidden near the groin area. Some inner thigh lifts require groin incisions and an incision that runs from the groin down the length of the inner thigh.

Patients who have lost weight and are bothered by excess skin in the thigh and buttock area can benefit from the firming results of a thigh lift. A thigh lift can also reduce the appearance of cellulite. This procedure may be combined with liposuction for more dramatic results. The patient’s new, slender thighs will be toned and firm. Recovery can be painful when stepping or sitting and usually takes three to four weeks to feel active again.
