The Westside Plastic Surgery team is excited to meet you! At your consultation appointment, Dr. Goggin will review your medical history,  discuss your goals, perform a brief physical examination, and then provide you with his professional recommendations.

Dr. Goggin is knowledgeable in the latest research, techniques, and advances in the field to provide you the best care possible.



Before your surgery, our team will give you a pre-operative packet with a list of instructions in preparation for your surgery. We will spend time reviewing these instructions with you to ensure that you are confident and comfortable before your procedure. Our goal is to provide education and be there for you every step of the way. Patients should be off all blood thinners 2 weeks prior to surgery. We advise strict smoking/nicotine cessation 6 weeks prior to surgery and 6 weeks after. 


Recovery Timeline

Dr. Goggin and the Westside team will give you specific information regarding aftercare to optimize your post-op recovery. Our team will be available to answer any questions or concerns you may have. Recovery time can be variable between patients and surgeries. After thigh lift surgery, recovery is typically 1-2 weeks.  Most patients will require assistance for the first 24 hours after surgery. We recommend you drink plenty of fluids, eat a healthy diet, and walk often to optimize healing.

Thigh Lift FAQs

How much skin is removed during a thigh lift?


The amount of skin that is removed during a thigh lift is determined based on how much excess skin an individual person has. During your consultation, Dr. Goggin will discuss your aesthetic goals and give his professional recommendations.

Can I get liposuction in my thighs instead of a thigh lift?


Your surgical plan is determined based on the amount of fat that is present and the quality of your skin. Patients who have had major weight loss typically have looser skin that does not respond well to liposuction alone. During your consultation, Dr. Goggin will discuss your aesthetic goals and give his professional recommendations to determine which procedure is right for you.

Where are the incisions for a thigh lift?


An incision is made in the inner thigh and may extend down to the knee depending on the amount of excess skin.
