If you work out on a regular basis and consume a healthy diet, it is likely that you are concerned about having good health and an attractive appearance. Despite working hard to have an attractive appearance, are there parts of your body that make you feel unattractive? It is common for men and women to deal with stubborn fat on their thighs. No matter how many squats or other leg exercises they do, the fat just won’t budge. They may also have a lot of loose skin on their thighs that adds to the problem. Many people in this situation have turned to a thigh lift.
What Is a Thigh Lift?
This is a surgical procedure that is designed to remove loose skin on the thighs. The goal is to leave a person with thighs that look tight and toned. In many cases, liposuction is used during the procedure to help a person get rid of unwanted fat on this part of their legs.
It is common for people who have lost a lot of weight to have thighs with a lot of extra skin hanging on them. While they have enjoyed the benefit of watching the number on the scale go down, they are still not satisfied with their appearance. The problem is that the skin was not able to bounce back after the weight loss.
Are You a Good Candidate?
The procedure is going to be customized in order to meet your specific needs. In many cases, the surgeon will remove excess skin and pockets of fat. Then the remaining skin is pulled tight. In addition to getting rid of the hanging skin, it allows a person to enjoy better muscle definition. Many people who work out regularly have strong thigh muscles. However, the excess fat that sits on top of them does not allow a person to have the toned look that they are going for. So you may be a good candidate for this procedure if you are dealing with excess skin and fat on your thighs.
Smokers do not make good candidates for a thigh lift. If you smoke and would like to receive the benefits from this procedure, it would be a good idea for you to stop smoking now. You will also need to avoid smoking in the weeks during your recovery.
