6 Minute Read:
Many men and women are frustrated by the appearance of their thighs, and the only thing more frustrating than having excess and sagging skin on the inner and outer thighs, as well as the presence of “saddlebags,” is the reality that the thighs are notoriously difficult to tone naturally.
While you can spend hours each day in the gym doing leg lifts, squats, and lunges (among many other exercises), thighs with pockets of fat and skin laxity often don’t improve easily.
But that doesn’t mean there’s no way to achieve the contoured legs you desire. It just means that you may need a little surgical help to get there.
At Kronowitz Plastic Surgery, we’re excited for the opportunity to help give you those toned legs you’re after. We offer many cosmetic surgical options to help improve your leg aesthetic as well as your confidence and comfort.
Below, you’ll find information on each of these procedures as well as why Dr. Kronowitz is the right plastic surgeon for you!
What Procedures Can Help You Achieve the Thighs You Desire?
Cosmetic surgery helps to correct issues that bother patients, and one of the most common cosmetic issues that frustrate men and women alike are fatty thighs and/or thighs that carry excess skin.
Liposuction, a thigh lift, and a lower body lift are all fantastic options that can help give you the appearance you want.
At your consultation, Dr. Kronowitz will evaluate your condition to determine which procedure is best for you.
What Is Liposuction?
Liposuction surgery is one of the most versatile and transformative plastic surgical procedures available. When you see what liposuction can achieve (both as a standalone procedure or used in conjunction with other surgical procedures), there’s no surprise that it was one of the top five most performed cosmetic surgical procedures in 2020.
For liposuction of the thighs, Dr. Kronowitz will make a small, inconspicuous incision in the thigh. Then, through this incision, a small tub called a cannula will be inserted to loosen any stubborn pockets of subcutaneous fat. Once loosened, this fat is suctioned out of your body, and once removed, those fall cells are gone permanently.
Liposuction is a great option for patients who suffer from excess fat on their inner and/or upper thighs but do not have excess skin that is sagging on the legs.
What Is a Thigh Lift?
Thigh lift surgery is geared for men and women who suffer from skin laxity in the upper and lower thighs. You can have either inner thigh lift surgery or outer thigh lift surgery.
For an inner thigh lift, an incision is made in the groin area. Liposuction may be used to remove any stubborn fat in the area. Then, the underlying tissue in the inner portion of the thigh will be lifted and secured in place with internal sutures. Excess skin is surgically removed, and the incision is closed.
An outer thigh lift requires similar techniques, though this incision begins in the groin area and continues down and around the entire thigh.
As with an inner thigh lift, liposuction may be used to remove any pockets of fat, the underlying tissue will be lifted and secured, and excess skin will be trimmed before the incisions are closed.
Additionally, because Dr. Kronowitz uses a 360-degree lift technique, your legs, hips, and buttocks can all be transformed so that your entire aesthetic is transformed to give you the appearance you have always dreamed of having.

What Is a Lower Body Lift?
Lower body lift surgery is helpful for patients who experience bothersome excess fat and sagging skin in the thighs as well as other portions of the lower body, including the back, flanks, midsection, and buttocks.
A lower body lift is a customizable set of cosmetic procedures that can include a thigh lift, liposuction, Brazilian Butt Lift surgery (which addresses the size and shape of your backside), and even tummy tuck surgery (which tightens abdominal muscles and gets rid of lax skin in the midsection).
With a lower body lift, you will be able to achieve the most transformation, since more areas of your body are being treated at the same time.
Additionally, by combining these procedures into one surgery, you can cut down on the overall cost and recovery time, since you are having these procedures completed and are recovering from them at the same time.
How Will Cosmetic Surgery Help Me?
Undergoing a thigh lift (as a standalone procedure or with liposuction or as part of a lower body lift) can allow you to regain confidence in your appearance.
Many people feel embarrassed about the size and shape of their thighs and legs, and they refrain from wearing clothes and engaging in activities that they love due to these insecurities. Whether it be playing sports, running around the park with your kids, or wearing the cute dress or pants that you’ve always wanted, cosmetic surgery can help you look as good as you feel and feel as good as you look!
Why Should I Choose Dr. Kronowitz for My Thigh Lift in Houston?
Dr. Kronowitz is the premier cosmetic surgeon when it comes to thigh lift surgery in Houston.
Not only does Dr. Kronowitz provide fantastic results, but he is the only plastic surgeon in Houston to offer inner and outer thigh lift surgery with the hidden incision technique. This technique is exactly what it sounds like. With Dr. Kronowitz, you don’t need to worry about any tell-tale scarring that advertises your surgery.
Dr. Kronowitz uniquely uses “hidden” groin incisions to perform the inner thigh lift, and a low-positioned lower abdomen and hip incision that doesn’t go all the way across the back to perform the outer thigh and buttocks lift.
For patients who undergo both the inner and outer thigh as well as buttock lift, the visible aspect of the scar is minimal. Even better, no additional scarring is needed when the inner and outer thigh lift is combined with a tummy tuck.
Interestingly, the tummy tuck incision is the same as the outer thigh lift except for a small extension around the outer hip. A bikini bathing suit can even cover the scars from Dr. Kronowitz’s combination tummy tuck with inner and outer thigh lift surgery.
In addition, Dr. Kronowitz always performs liposuction of the knees with thigh lift surgery. His approach is ideal because the tummy tuck pulls down while the thigh lifting pulls up to intersect at a very low-positioned abdominal incision, tightening the upper and lower body.
Because of the placement of the incision with his 360-degree lift, you won’t be left with any visible scarring.
