Is a Thigh Lift Right for You?

Exploring Your Candidacy

You may be a candidate for a thigh lift if you have excess skin in the thighs, especially the upper inner thighs. If you have excess skin and excess fat, your thigh lift may be combined with liposuction. If you have excess fat with good skin tone and elasticity, you may be a candidate for liposuction with Renuvion. Renuvion is a revolutionary subdermal skin tightening technology that offers substantial improvement to skin laxity through minimally invasive incisions.

Your Thigh Lift Procedure

What’s Involved

A thigh lift procedure is commonly combined with liposuction to first thin the area and remove excess fat. Then the thigh lift procedure is performed to remove the excess skin and create a smooth contour. The incision is most commonly hidden in your groin crease. During your procedure, Dr. Richland will carefully excise loose, excess skin and unwanted fat to meticulously and effectively sculpt your thighs to their optimal shape according to your desired outcome.

The Consultation Process

Dr. Richland strives for excellence in every procedure he performs. He believes that the best treatment experience and optimal results can only be achieved by clearly understanding your concerns, needs, condition, lifestyle, and aesthetic goals. For this reason, Dr. Richland utilizes a thorough and comprehensive consultation process, ensuring that every aspect of your care and treatment is tailored specifically to you.


After a thigh lift, your thighs will be wrapped with compressive ace bandages to minimize swelling and expedite the healing process. After one week, you may be placed in a lower-body compression garment. Our Newport Beach thigh lift patients will be able to return to their usual activities and work, excluding strenuous physical activity, within several weeks.


You will notice the results immediately after surgery, and the results will continue to improve with time as the swelling subsides.

Results from surgical thigh contouring are considered permanent. However, the procedure will not stop future weight gain or signs of aging.

Fat removed with liposuction cannot return, meaning you will always have fewer fat cells in treated areas than you did originally. Weight gain after liposuction is less substantial in treated areas due to the presence of fewer fat cells, although the remaining fat cells will continue to swell or shrink naturally with overall weight fluctuation.
