A non-surgical leg lift or thigh lift can firm loose skin around the upper and lower legs to restore a youthful, more contoured lower body. In the past, the only way to target sagging or drooping skin was through surgical methods, such as a thigh lift or leg lift. Thanks to technological advancements, Dr. Bassin can now tighten, shape, and lift the legs using less invasive body sculpting options, including BodyTite™, Aqualipo®, and SmartLipo™.
Surgical thigh lift and leg lift techniques of the past required lengthy incisions and stitches, resulting in extensive bruising, swelling, and healing time. Advances in technology have led to innovative, less intrusive leg lift methods that require minimal recovery and can achieve long-lasting, natural-looking results. Discover your non-surgical leg lift options below.

Traditional leg lift surgery can target a variety of different areas. Patients can reshape the inner and outer thighs, knees, and legs by surgically repositioning hanging skin that contributes to drooping or sagging. If necessary, loose skin can be removed for smoother, firmer-looking results. A leg lift may be ideal for patients who have noticed significant sagging or drooping as they have gotten older, as well as patients who have lost a substantial amount of weight and are bothered by loose or sagging skin left behind.
Leg lift surgery can achieve long-term improvements to your lower body, but requires incisions, sutures, and weeks of recovery time. Dr. Bassin offers numerous non-surgical procedures that are considered alternatives to traditional leg lift surgery. These procedures can achieve long-lasting results with substantially less downtime.
BodyTite™ can add natural-looking firmness to your legs! A variety of different factors, including your age, genetics, or pregnancy, can contribute to sagging leg skin over time. The thighs, hips, knees, and lower legs may lose skin elasticity, structure, and youthful volume as you get older, leading to a loss of firmness. The BodyTite™ leg lift can treat the skin’s lower layers to restore a firmer-looking lower body. BodyTite™ is a revolutionary radio frequency skin tightening procedure to address loose skin and enhance curves. BodyTite™ can tighten tissues and stimulate the production of collagen to further reinforce skin structure.
Dr. Bassin performs BodyTite™ to shape the legs without the lengthy recovery times associated with traditional body sculpting surgery. BodyTite™ utilizes a local anesthetic, so patients do not need to undergo general anesthesia or IV sedation. Despite being less invasive than body contouring techniques of the past, the BodyTite™ leg lift can still achieve substantial, long-lasting, and natural-looking results for Florida patients.
Aqualipo® can remove unwanted thigh and leg fat using revolutionary water-based liposuction techniques. Aqualipo® sends a concentrated stream of water to excess fat cells, dislodging them from surrounding tissues. These fat cells are then gently extracted from the body using the Aqualipo® cannula. Water assisted technology can accentuate leg contours and improve definition for natural-looking results.
Aqualipo® is much less invasive than a surgical leg lift or traditional liposuction. Water-jet technology results in gentler fat removal, resulting in less bruising and swelling. There are no stitches or lengthy sutures necessary, as Aqualipo® requires only a tiny incision in order to insert the cannula beneath your skin. Aqualipo® can slim the thighs, knees, and legs for symmetrical improvements to your lower body.
Add natural-looking firmness to the legs with SmartLipo™ laser liposuction! SmartLipo™ can tighten loose leg skin and remove small deposits of unwanted fat from the legs in one procedure. Body By Bassin offers SmartLipo™ to shape the legs at each of our Florida offices. Dr. Bassin can perform SmartLipo™ on the thighs, knees, and legs to achieve a more youthful-looking lower body.
During your laser liposuction procedure, the SmartLipo™ cannula is inserted beneath the skin and begins delivering laser heat energy to the underlying layers of your skin. Heat from the SmartLipo™ laser effectively liquefies fat cells, which are then removed from your body. Laser energy also stimulates collagen production and promotes a tightening effect. SmartLipo™ can firm skin and remove fat with minimal downtime, unlike traditional leg lift surgery.
Non-surgical leg lift techniques are less invasive than traditional leg lift surgery. Non-surgical leg lifts utilize specialized probes or cannulas, as opposed to surgically repositioning loose skin. As a result, there is less bruising or swelling. Non-surgical leg lift options also use local anesthesia, while a surgical leg lift usually requires a general anesthetic. Patients who undergo a non-surgical leg lift are typically back to their work and daily activities quicker than surgical leg lift patients. Even though the non-surgical leg lift is less invasive, this body sculpting procedure can still achieve long-term enhancements to your lower body. Contact us today and see how you can achieve a firmer, contoured lower body with a non-surgical leg lift in Florida.
