Thigh Lift in Chicago, IL

Weight loss is a momentous achievement for anyone. Unfortunately, many individuals lose weight only to end up with loose, drooping skin instead of the taut figure they desire. The thighs are especially an area of concern for many patients. For those men and women, Dr. Lawrence Iteld and the team at Iteld Plastic Surgery offer surgical thigh lifts (also known as thighplasty) to remove excess skin around the outer or inner thighs for a firmer, contoured look. If you're struggling with loose, sagging skin after weight loss, reach out to our office in Chicago, IL to learn how thighplasty can help you finish your transformation and finally reach your goals.

As with all cosmetic surgeries, thighplasty at Iteld Plastic Surgery is performed using non-narcotic medications for your comfort and safety. A surgical incision is placed around the top of the thigh in the natural crease where the thigh and torso meet. This incision often continues down to the midsection of the thigh. This allows enough space to use surgical liposuction (if wanted) to remove stubborn pockets of fat, as well as to trim the loose skin at the top of the thigh area. The skin will be pulled upward so it is tight and secured with sutures. In specific cases, an incision may be necessary in the outer thigh area or underneath the buttocks, based on the amount of tissue being removed. The goal of thigh lift surgery is to reshape the entire thigh area, leaving a shapelier, tighter, more contoured appearance.

The entire staff here was so amazing, I cannot recommend them enough! I had top surgery with Dr. Iteld and he, and the entire staff, were extremely welcoming, kind, and so supportive every step of the way. They are extremely affirming and take the time to make sure you have all your questions answered and feel comfortable. I had never had any surgery before and everyone at this location made me feel so at ease. And my results are AMAZING! I am so grateful to Dr. Iteld and his entire team for going above and beyond to help me through this process and for giving me a chest that I love! I truly cannot thank everyone enough for what they have given me.

Totally amazed at the transformation - fantastic follow-up - It took time but I am totally amazed at the transformation. I had a tummy tuck with a 360 lipo and I was way overdue for this. I was a little worried because of my age. No fear because Dr Iteld did such an amazing job . I dropped 2 dresses went from a 12 to an 8 in 2 months. My belly is gone. Better then before my children. Followed his instructions and his follow up was fantastic he checked on my progress physically in his office seeing me twice a week for over a month then weekly. If I had issues they were addressed. I’ve had a lot of past surgeries for medicals reasons but this is the best follow up I’ve ever had. Dr Iteld took a true interest in every step of the way.
