A thigh lift is a surgical operation which lifts and tightens the loose or sagging folds of skin typically experienced around the inner thigh area. It is designed to remove excess tissue to leave a firmer, smoother contour. It is often a procedure that is suitable for patients who have experienced drastic or sudden weight loss where the tissue has been stretched and hangs down from the inner thighs (outer thighs and buttocks can be treated with a body lift). Whilst liposuction alone eliminates unwanted fat, the thigh lift removes the skin and tightens the thigh area also.
As we age, the skin of our thighs loses its elasticity and begins to sag. This is especially true for those who have experienced repeated periods of weight gain and loss in which the skin has been stretched multiple times. Stretched skin is unlikely to shrink naturally and typically cannot be tightened with diet and exercise, instead requiring surgical intervention to deliver a pleasing solution.Go to Treatment
