Thick Thighs Save Lives, But So Does Loose Skin Surgery

There’s absolutely nothing wrong with thick thighs. In fact, haven’t you ever heard that they save lives? Although we’re not really sure how, we’ll continue to believe it. 

Sometimes, though, losing a significant amount of weight leaves thighs thick in what feels like the wrong way. This may look like excess sagging skin that feels out of place and uncomfortable, and of course leads to feelings of self-consciousness in revealing clothing.

Well, here’s what you can do: allow the Indian Hills Plastic Surgery team to save your life with loose skin surgery in Tuscaloosa!

What is loose skin surgery?

Normally performed on people who have lost a significant amount of weight, loose skin surgery removes excess, sagging skin on multiple areas of the body. Oftentimes skin likes to stick around in stubborn areas, like the inner thighs. A thigh lift, or thighplasty, is the target treatment for this.

With excess skin removal surgery in Tuscaloosa, you can regain confidence in your skin! In addition to the thighs, Dr. Wallace and her team perform excess skin surgery on the arms, breasts, lower abdomen, buttocks, and the back/bra line too. 

If you’re interested in loose skin combination treatments or even body sculpting, let us know during a consultation!

Am I a candidate?

You are a good candidate for loose skin surgery in Tuscaloosa if you:

  • Aren’t looking for a weight loss/fat loss procedure
  • Are in good health
  • Have maintained a consistent weight for at least 6 months
  • Do not smoke

Treatment time

Loose skin surgery in Tuscaloosa (for thighs) takes between 2 and 3 hours. 


As with any surgical procedure, there will be some discomfort, pain, and swelling in your thighs for the first couple of weeks. To ensure proper healing, we’ll provide compression garments for your thighs and all the other aftercare instructions you need to know.  

You can return to work and resume any light exercise after 2 weeks. Expect to be fully recovered and back to complete normal life in 6 weeks!


You can easily conceal your scars with underwear and swimsuits. To offset scarring, we offer take-home silicone therapy and Silagen treatments. Let us know if you’re interested in this.
