Thigh lift surgery is a cosmetic procedure very similar to arm lift surgery. The thigh lift, or thighplasty, aims to remove excess skin, fat, and tissue from the thighs to reveal a fitter, more toned upper leg. This procedure is popular in patients who have lost large amounts of weight and now struggle with redundant skin on their bodies. Many patients choose to have a thigh lift procedure done along with an arm lift, and others elect to do these procedures at separate times.
The Thigh Lift is a body contouring cosmetic procedure that aims to reduce excess skin and tissue from the upper leg area. There are a few ways that this surgery can be performed, and the technique depends on the patient and the patient’s individual needs.
For patients with only a slight amount of excess skin, a small incision will be made and hidden in the groin. However, patients that need more tissue removed will often have an incision made along the thigh area. Thigh lift surgery can be paired with liposuction as well. If a patient wants to remove fatty tissue and excess skin, then the cosmetic surgeon can insert a liposuction cannula into the thigh lift incision during the procedure. This combination can drastically improve the appearance of a patient’s thighs and help accentuate muscle tone and shape.
After bariatric surgery or weight loss through diet and exercise, many people become self-conscious about their excess skin. This insecurity impedes people from enjoying life after weight loss, but thankfully thigh lift surgery provides the opportunity to swiftly and easily deal with this problem. The thigh lift removes excess tissue and skin to reveal firmer, more attractive, younger looking legs.
Thigh lift procedures can also target undesired cellulite in a patient’s thighs.
