Weight loss and physical activity can go a long way toward developing a well-toned and proportioned body. In many cases, aging, pregnancy, sun damage or genetics can result in the loss of elasticity in the skin which can result in saggy thighs or irregular contours in the hip, thigh and buttock areas. If you’ve been working hard through diet and exercise but still have not succeeded in firming your thighs, our thigh lift in Boston may be the final piece of the puzzle to your fitness goals.

Thigh Lift Procedure
A thigh lift involves removing the excess sagging skin of the inner thighs. An incision is generally made along the buttock crease but may come down a portion of the inner thigh.
Your procedure will be dictated by your particular situation. A thigh lift can successfully treat dimpled skin, sagging or loose skin, and excess fat and tissue. Depending upon your situation, the surgery may be performed on the inner thigh, outer thigh or both.
The surgery will require incisions that could be extensive, but all efforts are made, when possible, to position the incisions in such a way as to decrease visibility in most types of clothing. The procedure may be used in combination with liposuction, or surgical procedures such as a tummy tuck or a mommy makeover. For additional information about the procedure, answers to any questions you might have or to discuss your particular condition, please contact Dr. Montilla to set up a consultation!
Recovery from a Thigh Lift
Initially you may experience some discomfort and swelling. This can be managed with medication. To avoid complications such as blood clots, you should begin light walking as soon as possible but should avoid bending and lifting for several days. For the best results in our Worcester thigh lift, you should also sleep with pillows under your knees to elevate them.
You should be able to return to normal, light activity within 2 to 3 weeks as you feel ready.
A Surgeon Focused on Others
Whether in his own office or abroad, Dr. Montilla applies himself to the betterment of others. He is a member of several non-profit organizations, each of which is focused on those less fortunate. Surgicorps International provides medical missions to those abroad who are unable to access medical help. Similarly, Hands Across the World is a nonprofit organization that provides free medical and surgical care, every year, to children and those in need in developing countries. Whether with these organizations or his own patients, Dr. Montilla leaves no stone unturned in ensuring his reach is as broad as possible.
