An aesthetic plastic surgical procedure that is intended to reshape the thighs by reducing excess skin and, in some cases, fat. This results in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body while decreasing the sagging or drooping in the inner or outer thigh.
If diet and exercise did not achieve your goal of youthful, firmer thighs, you may want to consider a surgical thigh lift. The best candidates for thigh lifts are people with excess skin and soft tissue along the inner thigh region and/or the outer thigh whose weight has been relatively stable.
A thigh lift in combination with liposuction can help patients with inelastic skin have attractive, firmer thighs. Thigh lift surgery is usually done through incisions in the groin that may extend around the back of the thigh for an inner thigh lift. Or some patients are candidates for a minimal-incision medial thigh lift, in which the incision is hidden in the groin. The surgery involves removal of excess skin and tissues, which reshapes and tightens the skin, giving the tights a firmer, younger contour.
An outer thigh lift, which is intended to improve the contour of the outer thigh, involves a groin incision that extends around the hip. This incision may be long, but we use carefully placed incisions that are usually in well-hidden places.
