Thigh lift plastic surgery is a type of body contouring, which reduces the amount of excess skin and fat on the thighs.
Judging from his beautiful upper east side plastic surgery office (and I’ve been too more than a few), he is very busy. We clicked right away. He talked me out of doing a few things I brought up, but overall, we agreed on a plan to help me look younger. He has operated on my face and body and it would be hard for me to choose which I am happier with. Also, he has the best nurses ever! ~ Vitals
- Thigh lift surgery is designed to reshape the thigh and hip area by removing excess skin and fat deposits from the thighs and hips. This surgery lifts and tightens loose skin folds of the thighs and reduces the excess skin, leaving a firmer, smoother thigh contour.
- Surgery results can be seen almost immediately.
- Surgery can be performed on the inner thigh, outer thigh, or both.
Some of the most common causes of sagging skin and cellulite in the thighs is due to weight loss as well as through ageing (gravity).
Repeated periods of weight gain and weight loss, where the skin has been stretched multiple times, destroying the elasticity, also contributes to loss thigh skin.
Lateral Thigh Lift: The tissue on the outer aspect of your thigh is raised
Medial Thigh Lift: The surgical incision is made towards the top of the crease in your inner thigh area – the scar is located in the natural crease of the region and will be well undetectable.
Benefits of a thigh lift include:
- The skin on the thighs will be tight and smooth
- Improves self confidence
- Cellulite is diminished
- Dimples are eliminated
A thigh lift involves liposuction along with the removal of excess skin to restore a healthier looking contour. If the skin tone is good and excessive fat is the main problem, liposuction alone may improve the condition.
