A Thigh Lift Is A Surgical Procedure To Remove Skin And Fat From The Thighs To Tighten The Skin And Improve The Contour Of The Legs.
A thigh lift is a surgical procedure to remove skin and fat from the thighs to tighten the skin and improve the contour of the legs. Thigh lift surgery can remarkably improve the appearance of your legs. The combined effects of aging, gravity, fluctuations in weight and a loss of skin elasticity all contribute to loss of tone in the thighs as we age.
Dr. Palmer approaches thigh lifts to meet your specific needs. This means adequately assessing the amount of excess skin and fat that needs to be removed. Each of these components will determine which procedure is best for you. With only mild skin and fat excess confined to the inner thigh region and good skin elasticity, you may be a candidate for a minimal incision approach. As the preoperative condition worsens in severity, the incisions required to obtain proper correction must be larger. For the most severe type of hanging skin conditions, a circumferential incision may be required.
