The thighs are a problem area for many patients, whether this is due to weight fluctuations, aging, or genetics. At our Denver plastic surgery center, Dr. Nick Slenkovich performs thigh lift surgery with artistry and skill, removing excess skin and fat, tightening muscles, and improving the contour and appearance of the upper legs.

How Is Thigh Lift Surgery Performed?

This cosmetic plastic surgery may be performed under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. The incision pattern will depend on the specific areas being treated, the degree of correction, and personal preferences.

For an inner thigh lift, incisions may be placed:

  • In the groin, extending downward and around the back of the thigh
  • In the inseam, from the groin down to knee
  • Only in the groin area, in the case of a minimal incision inner thigh lift

Reasons To Consider A Thigh Lift


Expect to see a dramatic difference immediately after a thigh performed by Dr. Nick Slenkovich, cosmetic surgeon at Colorado Plastic Surgery Center in Denver. The improvements will become fully visible after post-surgical swelling subsides completely, which could take up to several months. Benefits our patients experience with a thigh lift include tighter, firmer, more contoured upper legs, with improved skin quality in both feel and appearance.

  • They have lost a significant amount of weight: Although shedding excess pounds is great for your health and appearance, it can also leave you with loose, excess skin. When this happens, a thigh lift may be your best option to achieve toned, attractive legs that make your weight-loss efforts even more worthwhile.
  • Nature has given them abnormally large thighs: Some people have disproportionately large thighs thanks to genetics, which can be difficult to overcome with diet and exercise. Thigh lift surgery can remove excess fat and skin to improve on what nature gave you.
  • Chafing between the legs is a problem: Chafing of the skin between the legs can be an uncomfortable, or even painful problem for people who have large thighs or loose skin on the thighs. This discomfort can worsen with vigorous activity or in very warm weather. A thigh lift can be performed to resolve this issue.
  • Exercise is not working to achieve the desired results: It is always preferable to achieve toned upper legs through exercise and diet, but for some people, fitness efforts are unable to resolve the condition. Skin that has been stretched beyond its limits cannot shrink back after massive weight loss, and in many cases, the muscles lose tone and the skin begins to sag and droop. A thigh lift can help you achieve a tighter, firmer, more appealing thighs when exercise fails.
  • The patient is not a good candidate for liposuction: Liposuction could be an excellent method for removing fat from the upper legs, but not everyone is a candidate. Liposuction does not correct sagging tissue or remove excess skin.
  • Patients want to improve their self-esteem: Many patients choose to undergo cosmetic surgery to improve their appearance and raise self-esteem. A thigh lift procedure can tighten thigh muscles, reduce the appearance of stretch marks, correct loose sagging skin and create a more beautifully contoured appearance to the upper legs.

SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM DR SLENKOVICH:

Your safety is our number one priority. Please know that we join our community in taking advised precautions to limit the spread of the Coronavirus. For the time being we are planning on continuing practice as usual, with some additional precautions.

We have always routinely wiped down our office and patient exam chairs with medical-grade sanitizing wipes. We will expand this to include door knobs, toilet and faucet handles and will have hand-sanitizer available to you at check-in.

No staff will be allowed to come to work with a cough or fever, or if they have had contact with anyone with confirmed Coronavirus. We kindly ask for the same considerations from you. If you have any flu-like symptoms or have recently traveled, please call the office to reschedule your appointment.

We appreciate your flexibility as we will be limiting routine follow-up appointments over the next few weeks and ask patients to not bring friends and family members to their appointments to avoid the amount of patients we have in the office at one time.

We will also be offering virtual consultations throughout this period. We have always performed them for our out of town patients, which we have plenty, but we are now extending this service for local patients as well, in accordance with the recommended social distancing.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns please call and let us know.

Sincerely, Dr. Slenkovich & Staff of Colorado Plastic Surgery Center
