What is a thigh lift?
Thigh lift surgery reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin, and in some cases fat, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body.
If fitness and weight loss efforts have not achieved your goals for a body that is firmer, more youthful-looking and more proportionate to your overall body image, a surgical lift may be right for you.
About Arm & Thigh Lift Surgery
If you are unhappy with the way your arms and thighs look, then you are not alone. For many people, the joy and achievement of losing a significant amount of weight can be overshadowed by the excess skin that is left behind. Once the skin has been stretched beyond capacity due to weight gain, natural growth or pregnancy, stretch marks can appear and if the weight is then lost again, the skin may struggle to shrink back into place instead hanging in loose folds from certain areas of the body. Arm and thigh lift surgery is performed to remove this excess skin to leave the thigh area tight and smooth, and giving you the body confidence you deserve.
The Thigh Lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to tighten the skin of the thigh and reduce sagging in the inner or outer thighs. The procedure is commonly performed on patients with massive weight loss, but it is also performed on people who have not experienced weight loss.
Fortunately, plastic surgery offers a potentially ideal solution in the form of thigh lift surgery. Thigh lift is an excellent way to achieve firmer and more attractive upper legs. This procedure is especially helpful for those who struggle with loose, excess skin as a result of weight loss. A thigh lift, or thighplasty, involves the removal excess skin, fat, and tissue to tone and refine the upper legs.
Inner Thigh Lift
An Inner Thigh Lift, or an inner thighplasty, is a very popular and commonly performed form of cosmetic surgery for people who desire thinner, firmer inner thighs. Dr. Rivela, consistently voted “Best Plastic Surgeon” in The Woodlands by Woodlands Online, will perform the procedure.
If fitness and weight loss efforts have not achieved the goals for a body that is firmer, more youthful-looking and more proportionate to the overall body image, a surgical thigh lift may be the right choice. This surgery reshapes the inner thighs by reducing excess skin, and in some cases fat, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the inner thighs.
Ideal candidates are:
- People whose weight is relatively stable
- Individuals with excess soft tissue along the inner thigh region
- Healthy individuals who do not have medical conditions that can impair healing or increase risk of surgery
- Individuals with a positive outlook and realistic goals for what surgery can accomplish
- Individuals committed to leading a healthy lifestyle including proper nutrition and fitness
Inner Thigh Lifts are not intended strictly for the removal of excess fat. Liposuction alone can remove excess fat deposits where skin has good elasticity and is able to naturally conform to new body contours. In cases where skin elasticity is poor, a combination of liposuction and thigh lift techniques may be recommended.
