Sleeker, Slimmer-Looking Legs for the Milwaukee and Madison Area

Achieving a beautiful leg contour, where skin is firm and unappealing bulges are smoothed, is what helps patients feel confident wearing shorts, dresses, and swimsuits in warm weather. However, this can be a challenge for patients with loose skin after weight loss or from the natural aging process. With a thigh lift from the Milwaukee area’s Dr. Maida Parkins or Dr. Lucas Boehm, you can enjoy new body contours that match your expectations and help you feel your absolute best. If you’ve made the effort to achieve an ideal weight but still aren’t seeing the shape you want because of loose skin, visit Parkins Plastic Surgery.

What's Included

Your Thigh Lift Consultation

Dr. Parkins or Dr. Boehm will begin your thigh lift treatment plan with a personal consultation at our boutique clinic. During this visit, they can evaluate the tone and laxity of skin on your legs and determine which procedures are necessary to help you achieve your desired results. In this meeting, your surgeon can decide whether a more inclusive lower body lift would be beneficial. Liposuction may also be necessary to sculpt and contour the thighs. Understanding your BMI before your consultation will help determine your eligibility for surgery.

Dr. Parkins offers a female perspective on plastic surgery and understands patients’ frustrations with their body shape. Dr. Boehm’s extensive training and experience in the latest plastic surgery techniques offers an innovative approach for all of his patients. Our goal is to help you feel confident and transformed. This is at the core of our team’s passion for plastic surgery and excellent aesthetic care. If you have questions or concerns about thigh lift procedures, Dr. Parkins and Dr. Boehm encourages you to bring these up during your consultation so we can help you feel great about your choice for care.

What to Expect During Thigh Lift Surgery

Thighplasty treatment is provided under general anesthesia, so patients are completely comfortable during their procedure. Your surgeon will complete your procedure right at our AAAASF-certified outpatient surgical facility. Hospital visits and overnight stays are not necessary for your body contouring procedure.

Your thigh lift begins with an incision either hidden in the groin crease or placed along the inner thigh, starting at the knee and ending at the groin. This is called a medial thigh lift and is one of the most commonly used techniques to excise loose skin from the upper legs.

In cases where patients are experiencing significant skin laxity, the thigh lift incision may also extend to the back of the body, tracing the natural butt crease. This is necessary to ensure your new leg shape is smooth and skin looks taut. The surgery helps to smooth the inner thigh contour and reduce the loose skin that chafes patients during everyday movement.



Dr. Parkins & Dr. Boehm are committed to surgical excellence through education, compassion, and confidentiality. Their combined experience is unparalleled and highly sought after in the Madison and Milwaukee area. A consultation with either of our surgeons is conducted at our private, state-of-the-art surgical facility where you will have all your questions answered so you can confidently start your surgical journey.

Surgical fat reduction can also be added to your thigh lift to help reduce pockets of fat and sculpt the curve of the thigh. Our surgeons are highly experienced in liposuction techniques in combination with lower body lift procedures and more. This can be particularly helpful for patients who have stubborn fat deposits that occurred with weight loss and general aging.

Depending on the extent of treatment and whether fat reduction is to be added to your procedure, thigh lift surgery may last several hours. You will recover from anesthesia in our comfortable office and can be taken home by a loved one or caregiver afterwards. A compression garment will be placed to help with the healing process.

What is Recovery Like Following a Thigh Lift?

Patients find their thigh lift recovery to be easily tolerated. Surgical procedures that involve only the removal of loose skin, as opposed to the repositioning of musculature, have a more comfortable recovery process. You will be asked to rest for the first few days and take medication as recommended by your surgeon.

As tissue heals from thigh lift surgery, patients will notice the development of bruising and swelling. This is common and is not cause for concern. Swelling resolves slowly over the course of recovery, but patients will soon notice that their legs look slimmer and their skin is significantly firmer to the touch.

Dr. Parkins and Dr. Boehm provides thorough instructions for how to ease back into physical activity and when normal routines can be resumed. Patients typically take one week off from work after a thigh lift, but possibly more, depending on how physically demanding their jobs may be.

Body Contouring Options Beyond Thigh Lift

While a thigh or lower body lift focuses on one area, lax skin can develop elsewhere, too. Post weight-loss surgery options higher on the body include tummy tuck and/or arm lift.
