A thigh lift reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin, and in some cases fat, resulting in smoother skin and better proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body.
If fitness and weight loss efforts have not met your personal body goals, a thigh lift may be right for you in achieving a firmer, more youthful and proportionate appearance.
ARE YOU A GOOD CANDIDATE?
The best candidates for a thigh lift are healthy individuals who have excess tissue along the inner thigh and/or outer thigh. Must have realistic expectations and a positive outlook for thigh lift surgery. No medical conditions that can impair healing or increase risk of surgery. The individual must maintain a relatively stable weight and be committed to a healthy lifestyle with good nutrition and exercise.
What a thigh lift won’t do: Thigh lifts are not intended strictly for the removal of excess fat. Liposuction alone can remove excess fat deposits where skin has good elasticity and is able to naturally conform to new body contours. In cases where skin elasticity is poor, a combination of liposuction and thigh lift techniques may be recommended.
Before treatment, your surgeon will need to do a private consultation. During this consultation, we will discuss treatment goals, preoperative care, postoperative care and the risks associated with surgery. You are encouraged to look at patient photos to help illustrate what can and cannot be accomplished through cosmetic surgery. The decision to move forward will rest entirely upon you.
