A thighplasty also called thigh lift is a cosmetic procedure that can improve the shape of your thighs due to excess skin on the sagging and bulging skin around the thighs that can be a result of aging, pregnancy, or a notable weight loss.
Sagging skin changes that occur during aging are observed more often in the thighs and arms than in other body regions. Patients experiencing substantial weight loss after bariatric surgery exhibit more evident problems, including unsightly appearance, discomfort, difficulty walking, and hygiene problems.
The purpose of a thigh lift is to lift and contour the thighs so that they look thin and in balance with the rest of the body. A combination of a thighplasty and liposuction procedure can be performed to give the thighs a more balanced appearance.
People considering thigh lift surgery should know that it is not a surgical means of losing weight. It is a procedure for those who are close to their ideal weight but unhappy with the appearance of their thighs.
