A thigh lift, also know as a Thighplasty, improves the contours of the thighs and may be performed in combination with liposuction and other body lifts. A thigh lift reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin, and in some cases fat, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned thighs and lower body.
If fitness and weight loss efforts have not helped you reach your goals for a body that is firmer, more youthful, and proportionate to your overall body image, a surgical thigh lift may be right for you.
In cases where skin still maintains elasticity and the ability to naturally conform to altered body contours liposuction alone may be an appropriate treatment. Thigh lifts are not used for the removal of excess fat only, liposuction alone can remove excess fat deposits in such cases. When skin elasticity is poor, however, a combination of liposuction and thigh lift techniques may be recommended.
