Located in Green and Beachwood, Ohio, Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Steven S. Carp, M.D., F.A.C.S, performs thigh lifts for patients in and around Akron, Cleveland and Canton.
A thigh lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure for removing excess fat and skin from the thighs. Thigh lifts help improve the look of your thighs by eliminating that “cottage cheese” look caused by cellulite. The procedure is often considered most effective for the sides and fronts of the thighs. Scarring at the hip is to be expected, but it fades gradually and is easily concealed by underwear or bathing suits. A thigh lift can provide benefits such as increased confidence, firmer, younger-looking legs, and greater outfit options and enhanced comfort.
This outpatient procedure generally takes several hours and depending on the technique decided upon by you and Dr. Carp, general or local anesthesia will be used.
Next, an incision is made in the groin. Dr. Carp separates the thigh skin from the fat and muscle, then removes any excess skin. The leftover skin is stretched into place and sutured. Small drainage tubes may be inserted into the incision sites to prevent fluid buildup. Please take a look at these thigh lift before and after pictures of some of Dr. Carp’s real patients.
