Thigh & Buttock Lift in San Diego
As we get older, our skin naturally loses elasticity, keeping it from “bouncing back” like it used to—particularly if you’ve lost a significant amount of weight. Available at our San Diego plastic surgery practice, a thigh and buttock lift is designed to improve your contours and provide a tighter, more attractive thigh and buttocks.

Is a thigh & buttock lift right for me?
You may be a candidate for a San Diego thigh-buttock lift at La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre & Medical Spa if you have experienced a loss of skin elasticity of the thigh, hip, or buttock areas. This procedure may also be fitting if your skin in this area is saggy, flabby and dimpled in appearance.
Thigh and buttock lift patients should:
Be at a stable body weight and in general good health
Understand what to realistically expect from the procedure
Know that when a large amount of skin is removed or lifted, there will likely be some visible scarring
If you are self-conscious about your lower body appearance, this procedure may be desirable. The best way to determine if you are a good candidate is to speak with a board certified plastic surgeon experienced in body lifting procedures.
Design the New You
Not sure how to get the look you want? Tell us about your goals, and we’ll show you the possibilities.
This procedure is performed under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis unless otherwise advised by the plastic surgeon. Wide variations in the design of the incisions to meet clothing or personal desires are possible.
Lifting the entire thigh and buttock (circumferential lower body lift) will require much longer incisions that start in the buttock crease, extend around the groin, up over the side of the abdomen, over the flank and across the back.
For larger thigh lifts, one or two nights care in a hospital or skilled nursing facility is usually required. While you’ll be encouraged to get up and walk soon after your surgery to encourage circulation, the first week or two after your thigh lift will require you to spend a lot of time resting and taking it easy.
