Use of a Thigh Lift Procedure to Improve the Contours of the Lower Body
- Posted on: Jul 15 2019
Sometimes, diet and exercise alone cannot target specific, problematic areas of the body. For men and women who want to reduce excess fat and skin in the thigh area to improve their contours and shape, a thigh lift procedure may be the best option.
What is a thigh lift?
A thigh lift is a special plastic surgery used for cosmetic enhancement of the lower body by removing excess fat and skin from the inner and/or outer thighs. This treatment is used to reshape the area and smooth the skin for improved proportion and appearance. In some cases, a thigh lift may be combined with other procedures such as liposuction, a tummy tuck, or a buttocks lift. By performing several treatments at once, patients can lower the overall cost of their services and reduce the need for separate healing and recovery periods.
Who is a candidate for a thigh lift?
The thigh lift procedure is best for patients who are adult nonsmokers and are within a healthy weight range. These patients need to have a positive and realistic outlook as to what the procedure can achieve, and should be committed to continuing a lifestyle with a proper diet and routine exercise. Patients should also understand the likelihood of scarring as a result of treatment and understand that this is due to the more invasive nature of surgery.
What occurs during a thigh lift?
Patients are properly sedated and anesthetized for their treatment. During the procedure, the doctor will make an incision during which a cannula may be used to suction out excess fat in the area. Then, excess skin is removed before the area is stitched together. The procedure is relatively simple and routine, and can provide amazing results for those who are looking to reduce the circumference of their thighs and address excess fat deposits.
