Thigh lift surgery reshapes the thighs through reduction of excess skin and fat. This results in smoother, tighter skin and improved contour. This procedure is particularly helpful for those who have lost considerable amounts of weight after bariatric surgery. If diet and exercise alone have not achieved desired results, a thigh lift can help achieve a more proportionate look.
A thigh lift involves excision of the excess skin along the groin crease and possible liposuction to improve contour. In case there is considerable skin excess and fat on the surrounding areas, you may need to have an incision along the inner thigh in order to lessen the whole boundary of your thighs. The incision is usually done in the crease of the groin or along the inside of your thighs depending on the amount of surplus skin and level of laxity so that it will not be noticeable in a swimsuit.
If desired, a thigh lift can be done in tandem with other procedures to maximize results. For example, a combination of liposuction and thigh lift techniques might be best for your particular situation. Dr. Haque will discuss this with you during the consultation.
