Thigh Lift

In Timonium, Maryland

Whether due to weight loss, genetics, or because they simply haven’t had any luck with diet and exercise, many people struggle with excess skin on their thighs. At the Advanced Center for Plastic Surgery in Baltimore, Dr. Fischer can give you the beautiful, shapely thighs you deserve.

What is a Thigh Lift?

A thigh lift, or thighplasty, reshapes the thighs by removing excess skin and fat, leaving you with smoother, firmer, and better-proportioned thighs.

Candidates for a Thigh Lift

In general, ideal candidates for a thigh lift in Baltimore meet the following criteria:

  • At a stable weight
  • Have excess skin and fat (or cellulite) around the inner and outer thigh you want removed
  • Have no medical conditions that could affect the healing process
  • Nonsmokers
  • Have realistic expectations of the results
  • Committed to a healthy lifestyle to maintain your results

Thigh Lift Procedure

What occurs during your thigh lift in Baltimore depends on your areas of concern and the results you’re looking for. The options include an inner thigh lift, outer thigh lift, or vertical thigh lift.

The inner thigh lift includes an incision near the inner crease of the leg (along the bikini line), followed by skin removal and lift to tighten the skin on both sides of the leg.

An outer thigh lift is similar, but your incision will extend from the groin area around the hip so that skin can be removed and tightened around the outer thigh area. A vertical thighplasty is not as common, but when done, a wedge of tissue is removed, and the remaining skin is tightened. We often don’t use this final method because it can leave a more visible scar as the incision goes down the inside of the leg.

No matter what incision we use, the procedure will start with the administration of general anesthesia. Once that kicks in, the appropriate incision will be made, and the excess tissue and fat will be removed. The skin and muscles will be tightened, and the incisions will be closed.

Thigh Lift Recovery

Following the procedure, you will likely experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort. We will provide a compression garment to help the swelling, and Dr. Fischer will prescribe pain medication to help with any discomfort. You will want to wear your compression garment for at least six weeks.

You’ll need one to two weeks of downtime before returning to work and your normal routine. You’ll need to avoid more strenuous activities for several weeks more. Full recovery typically takes 4-6 weeks.  During this time, you’ll need to keep your incisions clean and covered, get plenty of rest, and follow Dr. Fischer’s aftercare instructions.

Any visible scars will fade over time and should be almost invisible within a year.

Thigh Lift Results

The initial results of a thigh lift are visible almost immediately. However, the full results won’t be obvious due to the swelling and bruising present after surgery. As those side effects diminish over the weeks and months of recovery, your final results and new thigh shape will become fully visible. It typically takes six months before you can see the full results.

"I had a fabulous experience!!! From the start... when I went for my consult, to the day I booked my appointment, from the day of surgery to that night and after for my 6 week follow up I have been very pleased. Everyone in the office has superb customer service!!! They made me feel super comfortable. My surgery turned out amazing and I couldn't be happier with my results. I have been telling everyone about Doctor Fisher and her amazing staff!!! If I could give 10 stars I would!!!!"


"Love, love, love Dr. Fischer and her entire staff. I had 2 major procedures done on the same day and I’m 6 months out and couldn’t be happier with the results!! She has given me a whole new lease on life! Dr. Fischer’s staff have been so supportive and patient with me during the whole process! I would absolutely recommend her to any and everyone!!!!!"


"My experience with Dr. Beverly and her staff was something I could never forget. They're knowledgeable, kind, and respectful. Every time that I go for a follow-up visit, I genuinely don't want to leave. Jo in the office remembers details about me and my mom and feels like a good friend now, and Shannon her nurse was really there for me. It feels like I'm visiting family. They recently hired new office staff and it made me nervous that it might change the environment but Hannah and the others I didn't know proved otherwise. Really incredible team who want to make a difference, and DO! As far as surgery goes, it was very smooth and any issues I had, I knew I would get outstanding support from the entire team."
