What is a thigh lift?
A thigh lift surgically reshapes thighs by reducing excess skin and fat, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body.
Thigh lifts are not intended strictly for the removal of excess fat. In cases where skin elasticity is poor, a thigh lift, along with liposuction, may be recommended to remove excess fat deposits where skin has good elasticity and is able to naturally conform to new body contours.
Ideal candidates for thigh lift procedures include:
- Those with relatively stable weight
- Those with excess soft tissue along the inner or outer thigh
- No other medical conditons that would challenge recovery
- Those committed to leading healthy lifestyles with appropriate diet and exercise.
Results of thigh lift procedures are almost immediately visible, but longer lasting results may take a few months to fully develop. Overall results are typically long-lasting.
