As we age, the thighs tend to sag under the weight of excess skin, muscles, and fat. If you’re bothered by the look of your thighs even after losing weight, a thigh lift might be the solution that creates the look you’re after. This procedure removes extra skin and some fat for smoother, firmer proportions.
Who Is a Candidate for a Thigh Lift?
Thigh surgery is ideal for those who still have sagging skin in the area even with diet and exercise. If you’re primarily interested in removing excess fat, liposuction is more likely to produce the desired results. In cases in which skin elasticity is not ideal, some patients choose to combine liposuction with a thigh lift. To undergo this procedure, you should be in general good health, at a stable, healthy weight, a non-smoker, and committed to a healthy lifestyle.
What Can I Expect from the Procedure?
Techniques vary depending on your specific case and desired results. Excess skin and fat is typically removed to create a smooth, taut contour. After the procedure, it is important to follow our team’s instructions for optimal results.
What Results Can I Expect?
Though the results of the thigh lift will be visible immediately after the surgery, it may take several weeks or even months for the final results to be evident. The thigh lift is designed to be permanent if you remain at a healthy weight and exercise regularly. As such, ideal candidates for the procedure are committed to practicing a healthy lifestyle.
