Thighs are an area of the body vulnerable to weight fluctuation and loss of skin elasticity.
A thigh lift is commonly performed on people who have succeeded with massive weight loss to tighten up loose folds of skin on the upper legs. The procedure, however, can be performed on anyone who would like to have trimmer, more toned thighs and has tried without success to accomplish this through diet and exercise.
During a thigh lift, the surgeon removes excess skin and tightens underlying tissue. Our plastic surgeons often combine this procedure with liposuction, depending on the circumstances. To find out if a thigh lift might be the right procedure for you, please contact our center today.
Medial Thigh Lift
You may qualify for a minimal incision medial thigh lift which involves an incision only in the groin area. Your surgeon will determine what’s appropriate.
Outer Thigh Lift
Advanced techniques usually allow incisions to be placed in strategic locations where they can be hidden by most types of clothing and swimsuits. However, incisions may be extensive.
