As we age or lose large amounts of weight, the buttock, outer thighs, inner thighs and abdominal areas may sag. This is true for men and women. Clothes no longer fit as well, so people tend to hide under larger sizes and, in some cases, stop doing enjoyable activities such as going to the beach.
An outer thigh/buttock lift or inner thigh lift is like a facelift for the lower extremities. It may be combined with a tummy tuck, called a body lift, to address both the front, sides and the back of the torso.
Thigh + Buttock and Body Lift Consultation
At the initial consultation, your goals and expectations about the thigh/buttock lift or inner thigh lift surgery will be discussed in detail. An individual decision as to the most appropriate technique(s) to be used will be selected and the advantages of each technique will be discussed. Informational material and discussion will allow you to have a clear understanding of the procedure.
"I was impressed by Dr. Greenberg’s credentials. From first contact, everything was done very professionally but had a personal touch. I was made to feel like a person instead of just another surgery. I liked Dr. Greenberg immediately. He gave me a lot of information and a lot of time and made me feel comfortable about him doing the surgery."
