Revive Your Body Confidence

Body Lift—Thighplasty

A body lift, sometimes referred to as a “lower body lift” or “belt lipectomy,” delivers a striking makeover for the mid and lower body. It has the ability to artistically reshape the midsection, hips, buttocks, and thighs, redefining your form and crafting a more naturally appealing silhouette. This procedure involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the thighs and lower body, resulting in a more toned and shapely look. Whether you’ve recently lost a significant amount of weight or simply wish to achieve a more sculpted lower body, thighplasty can help you achieve your desired results.

Dr. Guilfoyle and the Peak Plastic Surgery team are renowned experts in thighplasty and body lift procedures in Utah. With years of experience and a deep understanding of the unique needs of each patient, they have earned a stellar reputation for their precision and patient-centric approach.

Beyond scars: The evolution of the body lift

Thighplasty, or body lift surgery, has evolved significantly over the years to address aesthetic concerns and functional issues related to the thighs and lower body. The procedure’s history can be traced back to the early 20th century when basic skin excisions were performed to address excess tissue. However, it wasn’t until the latter half of the century that thighplasty began to gain popularity as a distinct cosmetic surgery procedure.

Dr. Guilfoyle’s skillful integration of innovative surgical approaches, such as liposuction and tissue tightening, has refined the procedure, enhancing both safety and aesthetic outcomes. Today, thighplasty is a sophisticated surgical option, offering patients improved contouring and functional results.

Does thighplasty hurt?

While there is postoperative discomfort, pain is usually managed effectively with medications. Most patients experience relief within 24 to 48 hours and transition to over-the-counter pain relievers.

Which type of thighplasty is better: medial or lateral?

Both medial and lateral thighplasty procedures have their pros and cons. The choice depends on individual anatomy and goals, and we can discuss the best approach during your consultation.

What are the risks of thighplasty surgery?

Common risks include infection and bleeding. While these are generally rare, they can be effectively managed with prompt medical attention.

Can a body lift be combined with other procedures?

A body lift is often combined with other procedures, such as a tummy tuck or arm lift, for a more comprehensive body contouring. The combination of surgeries can be discussed during your consultation.

How long is the recovery from a thighplasty?

Recovery from thighplasty varies, but patients can typically expect soreness for the first week. Full recovery, including a return to most activities, usually occurs within four to six weeks.

Who is a good candidate for thighplasty?

Ideal candidates for thighplasty are individuals with excess skin and fat in the thigh area, generally within or close to their ideal body weight. The procedure can address concerns related to skin laxity and contour.

Does insurance cover thighplasty?

Thighplasty is usually considered a cosmetic procedure, and therefore, it is typically not covered by insurance. However, individual cases may vary, and we can discuss potential options during your consultation.

How much weight can you lose with thighplasty?

Thighplasty primarily focuses on removing excess skin and fat rather than significant weight loss. While the procedure can enhance the overall contour of the thighs, the amount of weight loss is usually moderate.

“Loose abdominal skin and pockets of persistent fat can cause a person to appear out of proportion. For those looking for the best way to address this problem, a tummy tuck is usually the best procedure.”
