Patients who have excess skin and tissue in the thigh area following extensive weight loss or pregnancy may want to ask a plastic surgeon about the elective procedures available to enhance their appearance. Adult men and women who want to address this problem will find that a thigh lift may be the answer to their concerns.

What is a thigh lift?

A thigh lift is a specialized procedure that is performed to tighten the skin around the inner and outer thigh for a firmer appearance. It is not unusual for Dr. Homayoun Sasson of Great Neck, NY to visit with patients who have lost significant amounts of weight but cannot show off their results because of the sagging skin left behind. By removing excess skin in this area, patients can improve their body contours and not feel embarrassed when wearing shorts, skirts, or bathing suits.

How does the thigh lift work?

The thigh lift is performed in a way that reduces noticeable scarring on the skin. Incisions are made around the knees or in the groin area and used for fat and tissue removal. As soon as the thighs are tight and firm, the procedure is completed with sutures in the incision area. Patients are advised by their doctor as to aftercare instructions to facilitate proper healing while reducing the risk of infection.

Who is a good candidate for a thigh lift?

Patients considering a thigh lift will want to fully understand that this procedure is not a weight procedure. In fact, the best candidates are patients who are within their ideal weight but are embarrassed at extra skin that has been left behind. Patients should be adults in good overall health with realistic expectations as to what can be achieved with cosmetic surgeries.
