Is a Thigh Lift Right for You?

A streamlined body and looking fit is something almost everyone aspires to today. With an emphasis on good grooming, it has become important to ensure you look the part at the workplace and at home. For so many women and men struggling to shift the extra weight on specific parts of their body, or wanting a smoother and better contoured body, treatments like a thigh lift surgery can be a major help.

What Is a Thigh Lift?

During a thigh lift, the cosmetic surgeon removes any extra skin from your thighs as well as lower body, to give your body a much more well contoured shape. Some amount of fat and tissue may also be removed.

  • The Procedure: During a thigh lift, the plastic surgeon makes small cuts on your inner and upper thigh to enable the removal of an extra skin and some fat. The result is a smoother finish and thighs that look firmer and more youthful.
  • Liposuction and Thigh Lifts: Liposuction may be combined or done as precursor to a thigh lift. Alternatively, after the healing of a thigh lift your surgeon may recommend liposuction for better results.
  • Duration: It is an outpatient procedure, but your doctor may suggest you stay overnight if you can for better healing and post-op care. The surgery itself will take around four hours.

Who Should Get Thigh Lift Surgery: Thigh lift surgery is most effective for those who struggle with cellulite or sagging skin on their thighs. Often, even if someone has tried to lose weight through exercise or maintaining an otherwise healthy lifestyle, the thigh area can be troublesome when it comes to weight loss. In addition, weight loss may also cause a reduction in the fat in the area, but leave the person with saggy skin that makes them look much older.  Thigh lift surgery is not a substitute for exercise or liposuction but can be used as a supplemental procedure to give you a refined, aesthetically appealing silhouette.
