What is it?
A thigh lift is a surgical procedure performed by removing excess skin and fat to reshape the thighs. Individuals who have lost a significant amount of weight, left with sagging or loose skin around their thigh area, or those who want to simply improve the overall appearance and shape of their thighs are ideal candidates for thigh lift surgery. There are different types of thigh lift surgeries depending on the individual needs of each person, including inner thigh and outer thigh lifts, for people experiencing pockets of fat or loose skin in those areas, respectively.
A thigh lift is not used exclusively to reduce excess fat, as liposuction will achieve. A thigh lift offers an ideal solution to achieve firmer, more attractive legs. The thigh lift procedure is highly customizable according to the individual needs of each patient. Thigh lift surgery will reshape, tone and improve the overall appearance of the thighs, for a smoother, more proportioned lower body.
