What is a Thigh Lift?
Loose, excessive skin along the thighs can result from a dramatic weight loss, gravity, genetics, and the normal aging process. Unwanted, bulky skin along the thighs can leave patients feeling depressed and self-conscious over their appearance, and can cause you to feel self-conscious in clothing like shorts or swimsuits. Exercise and toning workouts will enhance the leg muscles, but unfortunately no amount of weight loss can reduce the hanging skin on the inner and outer thighs.
Corrective surgery is the best option to sculpt the legs and address sagging tissue. A thigh lift will reduce the excess skin and fat on the thighs, creating a tighter, firmer appearance. Two types of thigh lift are available:
Inner Thigh Lift:
- Also known as a medial thigh lift.
- The most common upper leg corrective surgery that is performed as a standalone operation.
Outer Thigh Lift:
- Combined as part of a body lift procedure such as a tummy tuck.
