Thigh Lift Procedure in San Francisco

People that have lost a large amount of weight sometimes feel discomfort when they walk, as a result of loose flabby skin, and are prone to develop rashes, skin irritation and general hygiene problems.  In addition, finding clothes that fit comfortably can be difficult too.

A thigh lift is a procedure that reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin and fat that have resulted from a successful weight loss program. It results in smoother skin and a better-proportioned contour of the thighs. Best of all, you may even be eligible for coverage from your insurance company.

San Francisco plastic surgeon Dr. Shahin Javaheri is well versed in the many variations of thigh lifts, and scheduling a consultation will give you the opportunity to work with him to put together a plan that will yield the best possible results for you.

Generally, the procedure takes between 2 and 4 hours, but may vary depending on the complexity of your situation.

All in all, the procedure is a great choice for those who have lost a ton of weight and now suffer from loose, excess, flabby or dimpled skin around the thighs and buttocks.

If this sounds familiar, please call 415.923.3800 to schedule an appointment in San Francisco or Berkeley to discuss the thigh lift procedure with Dr. Javaheri.

  • “Hi all, I wanted to send a thank you for all you guys did for me. I’m so thrilled. Everyone was so kind and knowledgeable and just plain fun. That really helped me get over being nervous and shy about the whole thing. Your experience really shines. I attached a picture of my new chest with a shirt I’m wearing that made me think of y’all!”

    “I have had 3 procedures so far with Dr. Javaheri, they are: tummy tuck with lower body lift, arms & breast reduction , and legs & gluteus maximus lift. My upcoming surgery is a face lift procedure. All these procedures are following weight loss surgery procedure called Gastric Bypass whereby I lost nearly 300 lbs. Dr. Javaheri performed all of my plastic & reconstructive surgeries to a great success. I am very pleased by the results. He even came to the office on a Sunday to deal with a small complication I had following one of my surgeries. It is so unusual to find a surgeon who cares so much about his patients; and an office staff that are so capable.”*
