Thigh Lift in Charlotte, NC

Do you hate your thighs? Do you wish you had more of a thigh gap? Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. David F. Klein, can help with thigh lift surgery, available to patients in Charlotte, Salisbury, Harrisburg, Concord and surrounding areas of North Carolina.

What is a Thigh Lift?

Thigh lift surgery is a cosmetic procedure that improves the shape and size of your thighs. In some cases, the surgery can improve a person’s thigh gap. Dr. Klein recommends thigh lift surgery to men and women who have excess skin and fat on their thighs and who feel embarrassed by how their thighs look. He may recommend liposuction in conjunction with your thigh lift to achieve the best contour.

Benefits of a Thigh Lift

A thigh lift will give your thighs a smoother, more contoured appearance. It can also improve the proportions between your thighs, hips and upper body.

How to Get a Thigh Gap

Thigh gaps are a popular topic in today’s society. You can evaluate your thigh gap by standing in front of a mirror with your legs together. The gap is the open space between your thighs. Dr. Klein cautions people, women especially, about simply focusing on having a thigh gap because anatomy plays a huge role. Not everyone can achieve a thigh gap due to the nature of their hips and body style. Not having a thigh gap, though, does not mean that you are overweight or unattractive. You are just different in your own beautiful way.

Who is the Ideal Candidate for a Thigh Lift?

The most important consideration for a thigh lift is being realistic about the outcome of the surgery. Dr. Klein will help you visualize the improvements that can be made with your thigh lift surgery. You should also be near your ideal weight because this is not intended to be a weight loss solution.

What Do I Need to Do Before a Thigh Lift?

Speak with Dr. Klein about your desire to have thigh lift surgery, especially if your goal is to have a larger, more prominent thigh gap. His patient-centered approach puts your concerns at ease, and he will only recommend surgeries that are right for you.

How Long Does It Take to Perform a Thigh Lift?

Dr. Klein specializes in advanced thigh lift techniques, and each technique takes a unique amount of time. The length of your surgery will depend on which technique he uses, such as:

  • Thigh lift for the inner thighs
  • Thigh lift on the outer portion of the thigh
  • Thigh lift in the upper third of the thigh
  • Thigh lift for the upper section of the inner thigh

What to Expect After a Thigh Lift

Recovery varies by patient and technique. Dr. Klein will explain your recovery during the consultation appointment. We will also provide aftercare instructions on the day of your surgery. Someone will need to be available to take these instructions and drive you home.

Will I Have Scars After Getting a Thigh Lift?

Every surgery results in scarring. To the extent possible, Dr. Klein places incisions in locations where scars are less visible.

When Will I See the Results?

You will see the results of your thigh lift during your first follow-up appointment when we remove the compression bandage from your thighs. You will have some swelling that will mask the results somewhat.
How Long Will the Results of a Thigh Lift Last?
By following a healthy, active lifestyle that includes eating right and exercising, you will enjoy the results of your thigh lift for many years.

How Much Does a Thigh Lift Cost in Charlotte?
