When you look at your thighs, you might notice that there is a little excess skin that hangs down. This skin can make you feel self-conscious, especially when you wear shorts, a bathing suit, or clothing that reveals your legs. This excess skin can also impact intimacy with others, walking during the day, or exercising. Fortunately, you can target this excess skin by having a thigh lift performed.
A thigh lift is a type of surgery that removes excess skin from this area of your body to give you the toned appearance that you desire. Fat deposits can also be removed during the procedure. As you get older, your skin can begin to sag due to the breakdown of collagen in your body. You’ll also notice excess skin if you lose a significant amount of weight. If you don’t focus on thigh exercises, then it can be difficult for the skin to get toned.
The surgery can be performed on the outer area of your thighs or on the inner area. The inner area of your thighs is a common area for the surgery to be performed as this is usually the area that receives the least amount of attention after losing weight and as you get older.
An ideal candidate for a thigh lift is one who is concerned about the appearance of the thighs and who wants to achieve a toned appearance so that the legs look like they are proportionate. Those who have lost a large amount of weight are also good candidates for this type of surgery. If there is a lot of fat deposits, then a thigh lift might not be the best solution as there would be more fat instead of loose skin to remove.
During the consultation, you can discuss the goals that you want to achieve from the surgery. It could be a better appearance, or it could be to improve your self-esteem because you don’t like how your legs look. From there, a customised surgery can be planned out for you.
