This procedure, also called a thighplasty, is especially useful for people who have excess loose skin from weight loss.
The thigh lift is a surgical procedure aimed at improving the shape and smoothness of the legs for the following reasons:
- Improve the body contour of a woman who, for personal reasons, thinks that the skin on her thighs is loose.
- Correct a reduction in the volume of the legs and thighs and a consequent sagging skin, after a significant reduction in weight.
By pulling the skin both superiorly and medially, we can smooth out the distended skin of the thigh and elevate sagging tissue.
What this surgery provides is an improvement in the smoothness and shape of the legs, thus improving the body contour as it reduces the volume of the legs and thighs.
