If you have saggy, baggy thighs, they can drive you crazy. The last thing you want to do is wear anything like shorts or a skirt that will show the world what your legs look like. The same holds true if your thighs are dimpled and never look smooth. There’s nothing worse than flabby thighs. This problem can happen with aging or after you have lost weight, leaving behind loose skin that won’t snap back after losing its elasticity.
Fortunately, there is something you can do about it. When your diet plan and your daily exercise regimen are not enough to trim your thighs, a thigh lift can work for you.
What is a Thigh Lift?
A thigh lift is a cosmetic procedure that targets the thighs, whether it’s your outer thigh or your inner thigh. It is also referred to as thighplasty. As with any other type of lift, such as a breast lift or a facelift, the idea is to tighten the appearance of the skin so that you are no longer faced with those baggy thighs that are bringing you down.
If you have lost a considerable amount of weight, you have to be proud of yourself for those results, but you are going to have excess skin that needs to be removed. Even if weight is not a problem, the thighs tend to be a trouble spot for many people.
Your Procedure May Involve a Combination Approach
As our plastic surgeon assesses your thighs, several steps may be taken to get the results that you want. Excess fat can be suctioned away through liposuction as the first step in the procedure. Then our plastic surgeon can trim away any excess skin on your thighs before pulling up your remaining skin to tighten your thighs.
