A thigh lift is designed to remove some of the sagging tissue from the inner portion of the thighs. It is designed to achieve a firmer contour and limit some of the inner thigh contact. It is most appropriate for the patient with a significant weight loss or localized loose skin of the thighs.
There are a few different options to the thigh lift. If the main problem area is loose skin and excess fatty tissue of the upper inner thighs, a 'crescent' lift combined with liposuction can be done. If there is loose skin throughout the thigh then a more extensive medial lift can be contemplated. This would also be combined with liposuction.
A thigh lift is one of the less common plastic surgery procedures but in the right patient it can make a dramatic difference. If you are contemplating an improvement of the contour of your thighs, please contact the office and arrange for your free consultation to find out which procedure would benefit you the most.
