What is Thigh Lift Surgery?
Thigh lift surgery also called a thighplasty is a surgical procedure that aims to smooth and reshape the upper thighs by removing loose skin and/or fat. This procedure helps patients achieve firmer and more aesthetically pleasing thighs. It is growing in popularity especially among those who have lost substantial amounts of weight and have loose skin on their thighs that impedes their mobility or they find unattractive.
What can a thigh lift achieve?
A thigh lift aims to smoothen and reshape the inner and outer thighs by removing excess skin and fat in these areas. The procedure targets the stubborn fat that healthy eating and exercising is unable to remove. A thigh lift can, therefore, help you achieve your ideal body goal.
It is important to keep in mind that a thighplasty is not a procedure that can aid weight loss. Our surgeons strongly advise that you reach a stable weight before you have your surgery.
You may choose to opt for a surgical thigh lift if you are looking to:
If the main issue is sagging skin, your surgeon will remove the excess skin and tighten the underlying supportive tissues. If the main issue is a large amount of excess fat, your surgeon may use liposuction alongside the thigh lift to help achieve the result you desire. The choice of whether to use liposuction or not also depends on the level of elasticity of your skin.
