A thigh lift is an outpatient procedure that involves removing extra skin and fat from either the inner or outer thighs. Most commonly, it is performed on people who have lost substantial or bariatric weight, or on those who have been unable to reduce excess tissue in their upper thighs through diet and exercise alone. Liposuction is commonly used in addition to a thigh lift to assist in recontouring the inner thigh.
You may consider a thigh lift if:
- You want better, more proportional contour and a firmer look and feel in the thighs
- You have undergone bariatric surgery or massive weight loss
- You are distressed about loose, flabby skin on your thighs
- You have difficulty fitting into clothing because of heavy thighs.
If you are in good general health, maintain a positive attitude, and have realistic expectations, you are most likely a good candidate for this procedure. Schedule a consult with Dr. Ethridge today to learn more.
