If you looking for a skilled plastic surgeon offering thigh lift surgery near the Bethesda area, turn to the cosmetic body surgery expert at Maia Plastic Surgery near Chevy Chase, MD. Firm, shapely thighs can be difficult to achieve with some body types. Diet and exercise can only do so much in reshaping the thighs. Genetics, aging and other factors can impact the size, shape and skin on the upper legs. If you want to remove fat and tighten the skin on the upper legs, a thigh lift may be right for you. Dr. Munique Maia and our team at Maia Plastic Surgery offer thigh lift surgery at our facility near the Bethesda, MD, area.

Many women carry excess fat in their thighs. Even though they may be at an appropriate body weight, they may have thicker thighs than they prefer. Plus, aging and weight gain can result in loose or sagging skin. Even if fat is lost, the thighs may droop or sag with the lost elasticity in the skin. A thigh lift is a combination of liposuction and lift surgery to reduce the size and increase the firmness of the thighs.

Are You a Candidate for Thighplasty?

Thighplasty can be a wonderful body contouring tool for those who are self-conscious of their thighs. However, it is not the right procedure for everyone. If you only want to remove targeted fat from the thighs, liposuction or other fat removal procedures may be appropriate. Ideal candidates for thigh lift surgery, or thighplasty, want to remove fat from their thighs but also have loose or saggy skin. Thighplasty can slim thicker thighs and create firmer, tighter skin that is more youthful and attractive.

Thighplasty is performed with incisions to perform liposuction and excise excess skin. Each procedure is tailored to the patient. Some patients need skin or fat removed from the inner thigh; others may need to focus on the outer thighs. Dr. Maia can discuss the best procedure to address specific problem areas while discreetly hiding incisions to obtain natural, beautiful results.

If you have loose skin and fat on your thighs that you want removed, a thigh lift surgery may be the solution. Contact us at Maia Plastic Surgery to schedule a thighplasty consultation with Dr. Maia at our clinic near the Bethesda, MD, area.

Dr. Maia and her staff are incredibly professional and truly empathetic. They’ve done a beautiful job with the treatments that I’ve gotten and I look forward to coming to the office every single time.

Dr. Maia deserves more than 5-stars! I’m thrilled with my results and I’m less than 3 months post surgery. Dr. Maia is confident and kind, and not at all pushy like other plastic surgeons. I was overly impressed the morning of the procedure. The surgical and hospital staff know her well! They were ready for her and put me at ease while I was getting settled in the OR. I appreciate the team in Dr. Maia’s office for their patience and care. They are just as calm as Dr. Maia.

Mid 40s male who’s always had nasal breathing issues and a dorsal bump. I finally decided to do something about it with a septoplasty/rhinoplasty combo. I met with a few doctors but Dr. Maia stood out. She instilled confidence, and I’m extremely pleased with the results. The surgery was straight forward, and the swelling was surprisingly light. A week later the cast was off and I was on the short road to recovery. Honestly, if I had known it was this easy I would have done it earlier. Thanks Dr. Maia!


I recently had Dysport injected by NP Kristina, and I could not be happier with the outcome. I can already see some of the results few days post-injections! I love how quickly Dysport softens the wrinkles, without giving you the "frozen look". Just in time for the upcoming holidays! Earlier this year, I did 3 Morpheus-8 treatments to my face and neck, and I am CONSTANTLY being complimented on how good my skin looks. Worth every penny! I also had fillers injected by Dr. Maia and Kristina. Dr. Maia did my under-eye, which I am obsessed about... what a change! Kristina injected my lips, chin, jawline, and cheeks. My face looks more proportional and guess what.... I FINALLY HAVE A CHIN :) Thank you, Dr. Maia, Kristina, and the Team. You're the best. I will surely be back for more.

I had tummy tuck and muscle repair with Dr. Maia 3 months ago. I couldn't be happier. I am 44 and I got my 25 year old body back after tummy tuck with Dr. Maia. The initial consult was great. The surgery was fast. The post op care was excellent. Dr. Maia and team assured me that I had great post recovery and everything going okay. I had no complication whatsoever. The incission was very small and low which I love. She is amazing and caring surgeon. He teams are very responsive and wonderful. I am very happy with the result and everything.
