Losing weight is important for your overall health and wellness, but sometimes, it leaves people with excess skin on different areas of their body. The thighs are a particular area of concern for many people. Sherman Oaks, CA plastic surgeon Dr. Husam Elias offers thigh lift surgery (also known as thighplasty) at Southern California Center for Surgical Arts, which trims extra skin on the inner and outer thighs to create a tighter, more contoured look. Thighplasty has gained popularity in recent years because it's an excellent treatment option for patients who don't want sagging skin on their thighs. We invite you to contact us for a consultation to learn more!

During this surgery, Dr. Elias will make several incisions to remove the excess skin on the thigh. For a thigh lift, general anesthesia is usually administered. An incision is made close to the upper area of the leg in the natural fold where the thigh and torso meet. The incision often extends down to the midsection of the thigh area. This allows enough space to perform liposuction to eliminate isolated pockets of fat, as well as to excise the loose skin at the upper thigh. The skin will be stretched upward so it is tight and then secured with sutures. In some patients, an additional incision may be necessary underneath the butt or in the outer thigh area, depending on the quantity of tissue being addressed. Thigh lift surgery takes 2 – 3 hours to perform. Patients can expect bruising, swelling, and discomfort during the first days of recovery. Complete healing typically takes around 6 – 8 weeks.

My experience with this office was absolutely stellar. Firstly, the staff welcomes you warmly when you arrive. Diana (doctor’s assistant) met me in the exam room.  Diana has a way of instantly making you feel comfortable and any nervousness you may be feeling is dissipated.... Because you can’t stop laughing. Then enters Dr. Elias.... He is extremely approachable, honest, and knowledgeable. It doesn’t hurt that he has multiple degrees. I am ecstatic that I found this business:

Dr. Elias pulled my wisdom teeth out like they called his mamma fat or something! Surgery was quick and basically painless. Didn’t need any of the pain meds and was back at work two days later looking like a snack. Diane was the nurse that took care of me for most of the process and she was so wonderful, kind, funny and sweet. If my wisdom teeth every grow back, I will definitely be coming back to Dr. Elias immediately. Thank you!
