Posterior Thigh Lift

Hate looking behind you in the mirror? A posterior thigh lift from Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. J can take care of the loose and sagging skin that can harm anyone’s confidence and comfort. With the help of the Los Angeles area’s plastic surgery leader, looking backward can be something you’ll look forward to!

Why You Might Get a Posterior Thigh Lift

Mother Nature is not fair! We can exercise as much as possible and never consume one more calorie than we absolutely need; sagging skin related to aging and changes in weight won’t be affected. Even more unfair, some of the worst sagging can be a consequence of a massive weight loss achieved with the help of bariatric surgery. Defeating obesity is one of the best favors patients can do for themselves, but the folds of skin that form in the back of the thighs and other parts of the body can be uncomfortable as well as unsightly. That’s no reward for someone who has literally worked their butt off for their health and appearance!

Whether the cause is aging or weight losses small or large, there is help. Payam Jarrah-Nejad, M.D., F.I.C.S., F.A.C.S., better known as Dr. J, is a widely acknowledged master of body contouring procedures for all kinds of patients. He has helped countless patients achieve the smooth and youthful look they deserve.

The Procedure

A posterior thigh lift from Dr. J starts with an infragluteal crease incision made under the crease of a buttock to lift the excess, sagging skin on the back of the thighs. Putting the incision in this location will help to hide scarring by placing it in the most inconspicuous area.

Next, Dr. J carefully removes excess skin as well as excess fatty tissue via liposuction. He will then sculpt the remaining tissue and, as with similar procedures, literally lift the skin and suture it back into place. Dr. J always strives for outcomes that flatter both the back of the thighs and the patient’s entire physique.

Dr. J prides himself on his ability to perform these procedures with little visible scarring and in such a way as to minimize a patients’ post-operative recovery time. The results can make for a dramatic improvement in the appearance of the lower thighs while also looking completely natural.

Whether a posterior thigh lift is obtained by itself or with other surgeries – it is sometimes part of a mommy makeover – it is a delicate procedure that requires the expertise of an outstanding plastic surgeon. Former patients agree that their outcomes confirm Dr. J’s worldwide reputation for consistent excellence.

Posterior thigh lifts are performed on an outpatient basis at Dr. J’s Platinum Surgical Center. Patients are advised, however, to spend one night at an aftercare facility for optimal safety.

It will be necessary to take roughly one to two weeks off from work. For optimal healing, patients should also avoid sitting directly on their buttocks for three weeks or as advised by Dr. J. It will also be necessary to wear the post-operative dressing for several days as directed by Dr. J. The doctor will also prescribe antibiotics to prevent infections and pain medication as needed. Patients will wear post-operative compression garments for about six to 12 weeks following their surgery.

The outcome of the posterior thigh lift will typically start to show itself a few weeks following surgery but recovery time varies. In most cases, however, the full results should be apparent in a matter of a few months.

About Dr. J
