Thigh lift surgery is a highly effective technique for removing loose skin, creating tight, toned legs and improving body contouring. The technique is of particular help for people who have undergone extreme weight loss and are now looking for a solution for eradicating loose skin.
Losing a lot of weight is not an easy journey and if you’re in the position of having achieved that goal, you should be feeling great and congratulating yourself. However, often following extreme weight loss, people unfortunately find the loose skin left behind even harder to get rid of than the weight itself. Despite a healthy diet and rigorous exercise regime, it can be impossible to resolve loose excess skin naturally. The skin on the thighs can be of particular issue and in such cases a surgical thigh lift is an incredibly effective solution.
Thigh lift surgery involves creating incisions to the top of the thigh, the skin is pulled upwards, stitched into the new position and excess skin is then removed. This can be performed either laterally – with a focus on the outer thighs and buttocks, medial – with a focus on the inner leg, or circumferential – which combines an inner thigh lift with a lower body lift to focus on the front, back, inner and outer thighs, as well as the buttocks, lower abdomen and lower back.
All approaches can be performed in conjunction with an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), brachioplasty (arm lift) and liposuction, which combine brilliantly with a thigh lift to provide a wider sphere of body contouring and redefinition.
For many people, thigh lift surgery is the last step in a long journey to obtaining the body they’ve been working incredibly hard to achieve. It’s a very effective procedure, boasting instantly obvious results, and as such can be life changing for those who chose it.
