Women and men have always desired to have slim, sleek and smooth contours and textures of their skin but with aging, rapid weight fluctuations and over eating many body parts become flabby, and lose their shape.
The thighs are very prone to gaining weight and all the carbohydrates you eat go straight to your thighs and nobody wants to have chunky and dimpled thighs. A thigh lift or a thighplasty can reduce excess skin and fat in the thigh and knee area, resulting in resculpted and defined thighs that look good in jeans, bathing suits and skirts.
Thigh lift techniques aim to create thighs that are harmonious in relation to the waist, hips, buttocks, abs and legs. The trunk and outer thighs form an hourglass silhouette and bend toward the waist curving smoothly toward the outer thighs.
Ideally, the thighs should stand apart from the buttock and appear smooth without any dimples.
Men and women who have saggy, flabby or dimpled loose tissue on their thighs are good candidates for this body contouring procedure. People who have lost enormous amounts of weight after surgery may also need thigh lift to get rid of the excess fat in this area.
Some frequently asked questions regarding thigh lift are the following:
Am I a good candidate for thigh lift surgery?
People with large amounts of fat carrying folds of skin where fat used to be may require a thigh lift to remove excess skin. You must be in good physical and mental health, have realistic expectations regarding the surgery and understand all aspects of this procedure.
Will a thigh lift remove excess fat?
A thigh lift is more suited towards removing excess skin; if you have excess fat in your thighs then a liposuction would be a more suitable option for you.
How does the thigh lift procedure work?
The cosmetic surgeon removes excess skin along the inner thigh area, which extends from the inner knee to the groin area and may carry on to the buttock area, depending on the amount of excess skin to be removed.
Does a thigh lift surgery require an overnight stay?
Usually, a 2-night stay is usually required in a comfortable office. The best standards of safety, care and hygiene are met for the patient.
What results will a see from a thighplasty?
You will see tighter, slimmer and shapelier looking thighs with no excess skin, dimples or flabbiness.
