A thigh lift is a surgical procedure that involves removal of skin from the inner thigh and re-suspension of the tissue to get rid of a sagging inner thigh. This problem can either develop with age or with significant weight loss. Whatever the cause, the thigh lift can eradicate the cosmetic problem.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the differences between Liposuction of the Thigh and a Thigh Lift?
We often differentiate the two for patients by describing the procedure used in both processes. Liposuction is excellent at treating localized fat deposits in the setting of tight, elastic skin and requires only small incisions. Compression garments are worn post-operatively.
A thigh lift is helpful for someone who has excess hanging skin on the thighs and requires surgical removal of some of the skin and fat; that removal is then followed by a lifting of the soft tissues. This surgery can be combined with liposuction. Incisions are longer than those with liposuction, but they are well hidden in the inner thigh creases.
