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.
If your thighs sag, a thigh lift can help give you a trimmer, more youthful appearance. Many patients who wish to improve the appearance of their thighs are good candidates for thighplasty, but you will need to meet certain requirements to qualify for this surgery. These criteria help keep you safe during the procedure and maximize your chances for achieving your new look.
Ideal candidates are healthy patients, physically and mentally, with realistic goals and expectations. In general, patients have fallen dramatically in weight, either due to barric surgery or to diets and practicing sports.
The procedure is performed under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation; incisions will be placed in strategic places, so that scars are well hidden.
