The Thigh Lift is a procedure that is performed to improve the appearance of the thighs when there is excess, sagging skin in the area. Today there are a number of body contouring options available to help improve the proportions of the body overall and in specific areas in particular. We often seen body contouring procedures performed after a person has already achieved a significant weight loss through natural methods or with the assistance of bariatric surgery. When a person loses a significant amount of weight in a relatively short period of time, the skin often can’t keep up and adjust to the new proportions of the body and people are left with excess, sagging skin that puts a damper on their weight loss achievement.
The Thigh Lift can help to improve the contour, smoothness, and toned appearance of the upper legs. In some cases the thigh lift may be performed in combination with other procedures such as liposuction, if excess, stubborn fat in the area is also a concern.
