Significant weight gain followed by extreme weight loss is often the reason patients seek out an experienced thigh lift surgeon like Dr. Tenley Lawton.
The thigh lift and excessive skin removal procedure Dr. Lawton performs in her Newport Beach outpatient clinic can correct the overstretched, inelastic, hanging skin of the thighs and buttocks. Skin laxity (looseness) also occurs as a result of the aging process due to both genetics and the environment. As a result of excess hanging skin, patients find themselves limited in their activities and clothing choices, and feel uncomfortable with their appearance. If you are one of those patients who would like their clothing to fit better, to have better ease of movement, and even the desire to wear shorts with comfort and bicycle, walk, run, or swim without having friction between your legs, then a thigh lift may be the answer.
The Thigh Lift Procedure

Thigh lift surgery takes approximately 3 to 4 hours based on body type and lift requirements. In general, Dr. Lawton performs this thigh lift and excessive skin removal procedure on an outpatient basis in her accredited Newport Beach surgery facility. In some cases, it may require an overnight stay in the hospital depending on your overall health and the extent of the thigh lift surgery.
