Thigh Lift

Have you tried sticking to a healthy diet and consistent exercise routine, but they haven't given you the firm, smooth legs you desire?

Thigh lift surgery is a great way to slim your legs when other methods don't yield results.

Our board-certified surgeon at SP Plastic Surgery, LLC in Minnetonka, MN, can use her artistic eye to recontour your thighs.

Let a Thigh Lift Transform Your Appearance Understanding This Body Contouring Technique

A thigh lift is a kind of plastic surgery that removes excess skin and fat from the inner thighs or outer thighs. It reshapes the legs, smoothing the skin and improving the contours of the lower body.

Thigh lift surgery may be a great solution for those who:

  • Want to remove excess fat and sagging skin due to the natural aging process
  • Want to remove excess skin after weight loss
  • Desire a more proportionate figure

The Thigh Lift Procedure

After completing a consultation with Dr. Peng in her Minnetonka, MN, plastic surgery office serving the Minneapolis–St. Paul metropolitan area, you can move forward with your thigh lift surgery. It will involve several steps:
We take great pride in helping patients look and feel their best and regain their confidence.

Dr. Peng will administer anesthesia to keep you comfortable and unconscious throughout surgery.


Incisions will be made depending on the type of thigh lift you're receiving. An inner thigh lift will require incisions in the inner creases of the thighs, and potentially an incision down the inside of the thigh. An outer thigh lift will require incisions that start in the inner creases of the thigh, and then run along the hips. Your incisions will be placed in areas where they can be easily hidden.


Your plastic surgeon will recontour your thighs, lending to a smoother appearance. She will remove excess skin and may use liposuction to remove excess fat.


The liposuction cannula and any surgical tools will be removed before your plastic surgeon places sutures.

Return Home

The results of a thigh lift are immediately visible; however, it can take up to six months of healing to see your full results. You should return home after your procedure with the help of a designated driver and begin your recovery.

Board-certified plastic surgeons have proven they have the skill and ethics to provide safe and effective solutions through reconstructive and cosmetic surgery. Having achieved this distinction, Dr. Peng is a prime choice for your thigh lift.
