Thigh Lift

Contact us

Some women have an excess of unwanted fat or loose, saggy skin on their thighs after weight fluctuations, or due to genetics, aging, or other conditions. They are left longing for the slim, trim, look of youthful thighs. When excess fat or skin on your thighs leave you with legs that look heavy or saggy, it can negatively impact your self-confidence. You may be a good candidate for a thigh lift. The procedure is the perfect solution for women who have stubborn fat in the thigh area that will not reduce with diet or exercise. A thigh lift can restore the youthful, tight, sculpted look to the thighs and give you the confidence to wear short, swimming suits, or other more revealing clothing options.

The Rose Clinic in Provo, Utah is a well-established practice that focuses on producing beautiful, high quality results and restoring your feelings of confidence in your body image.

Thigh Lift Procedure

A thigh lift involves several steps, and generally involves the following:


You will be put under general anesthesia for your own comfort, as the procedure is fairly long and complex.


Your incision will differ depending on the area of your thighs that you would like to reduce, as well as the extent of the procedure. The inner thigh lift incision will start in your groin area and continue downward around the back of your thigh. If your procedure requires skin removal from the inner thigh, another incision will be placed from the groin area down to the knee so the skin can be sculpted. The outer thigh lift incision starts in the groin area and travels up and over the hip and across the back. The incisions are placed so they can be covered by most clothing. The excess fat, tissue and skin is then removed from the treatment area to produce the look you envision.

Closing the incisions

Once sufficient fat and skin have been removed, the skin is pulled tight and the incision closed using sutures or other medical adhesives. You may also receive thin tubes in the incisions to drain fluid during as you heal.

You will be observed for a short period before being released to return home. Our doctor will also provide detailed aftercare instructions, a compression garment to control swelling and improve thigh contours, and prescriptions for pain medication and antibiotics to reduce the risk of infection.

Risk & Recovery

The most commonly experienced side effects can be treated with the medication prescribed by Dr. Rose. Serious side effects are rare, and all patients are fully educated on what to expect in surgical outcome, recovery, and risks. Your physical activity should be limited for the first few weeks to protect the incisions and allow them to heal properly. You can reintroduce light activity after the initial stages of recovery, but strenuous exercise or heavy lifting should be avoided until advised by Dr. Rose. He will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19 View Update Virtual Consultation


Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update April 1st, 2020

After serious consideration and in line with the recommendations of our State and Centers for Disease Control (CDC), we are closing the practice until April 25th.

Your health and well-being is our primary concern and we want to do our part to make sure that you are protected.

Effective immediately the following will occur:

  • All procedures and in-person consultations will be suspended until April 25th.
  • The office will be fully staffed, and we will see our urgent post-surgical follow-ups.
  • We are instituting Virtual Consultations for all potential patients.
  • Many surgeries are rescheduled and some of the ones that are committed will occur on a per case basis.

No patient will ever have any financial recourse for rescheduling their procedures.

We are constantly updating our services and staffing according to the local and national recommendations and will always place your health and well-being as our top priority.

We continue to exercise all the latest recommendations that are handed down by the CDC. These include:

  • The staff has been fully informed and trained to understand the disease process and its modes of transmission.
  • All staff, vendors and ancillary personnel are being asked to refrain from coming to the office if they have any signs or symptoms of a cold or an upper respiratory tract infection.
  • Every patient is also being asked to refrain from coming to the office if they have any symptoms.
  • We are asking our patients about any pertinent travel history.
  • Hand-washing continues to be the most important mode of prevention. Although it is a part of what we constantly do, now we are doing so with heightened vigilance and attention.
  • We have instituted a “no handshakes no hug” policy for now.
  • We have asked all vendors that any unnecessary meetings are canceled until further notice.
  • Any exit and entrance from our office are followed by a protocol of changing shoes, scrubs and sanitization.
  • As we are an accredited medical facility, we are constantly sanitizing all surfaces. We have now vamped that up and our routine, multiple times a day, wiping down all surfaces, desks, door handles, keyboards and restroom facilities. We have assigned a person that does so on a constant basis.

Although COVID-19 is a serious issue, we strongly believe that it will pass and hopefully make our infrastructure and our ability to deal with pandemics in this Country even better than it currently is. We are monitoring this situation on a real-time basis and will not sit back until we know that we have done everything possible to avoid unnecessary exposure.
