- You can accept a scar low on the abdomen, extending around the low back
- The skin on your thighs appears wrinkled due to sagging
- You have excess fat on the inner or outer thighs
What is an Upper and Lower Body Lift?

- Abdominal area
- Mons pubis (area above the genitals)

Do You Want to Know How to Get a Thigh Gap?
Dr. Palmer works with many people who are considering thigh surgery to achieve a gap between their legs, known as a “thigh gap.” While surgery may help in many cases, individual anatomy does play a role.
How is a Thigh and Body Lift Performed?
Each thigh and body lift is tailored to the unique needs of the patient; therefore, Dr. Palmer will explain the surgical plan for your thigh and body lift during the consultation.
What is Thigh and Body Lift Recovery Like?
All patients are seen back the day after surgery. This helps with early mobilization, which helps reduce post operative complications. If all looks good the day after surgery, the patient is seen in one week, then two weeks, and then one month. Because of the extent of the procedure, you should expect to take three to six weeks off from work for complete recovery. At three months, most of the swelling should have resolved and a final outcome can be fully assessed. Side effects include bruising, swelling, and slight numbness in the treatment areas. Infection is very rare, but you will be on antibiotics for a week afterward. Dr. Palmer will give you detailed and personalized post-surgery instructions prior to your procedure.
