EXPERT Q&A

Q: What is the recovery like after a thigh lift? Where are the scars?

What our experts say:

There are inner and outer thigh lifts and there are several types of each of those. Typically an inner thigh lift requires a scar in the crease between the upper thigh and the perineum or a scar running down the inner thigh to the knee. The latter is reserved for more extreme cases of inner thigh drooping.  An outer thigh lift typically requires a scar that runs from the low abdomen to the mid-back and that is hidden by undergarments.
