Thigh lift or Thighplasty
A thight lift or thighplasty is often used for patients who are not happy with the contours of their legs. Reasons can be excess skin after weight loss or because of fat that has been accumulating in the upper legs and hips. Whether excess skin is the result of a pregnancy, dramatic weight loss, or the aging process, excess skin and fat removal surgery is specifically designed to target your problem areas. In order to remove fat the hip area, inner thighs, inner knees and ankles are subjected to liposuction procedure. These procedures may be performed in a single operation or as combined operations under general anesthesia, and they may take up to 1 to 3 hours, depending on the type of the procedures.
Thigh lift is an excellent way to achieve firmer and more attractive upper legs. This procedure is especially helpful for those who struggle with loose, excess skin. A thigh lift, or thighplasty, involves the removal excess skin, fat, and tissue to tone and refine the upper legs.
In order to remove the excessive skin inside legs due to extreme weight gain or loss the surgeon might recommend a vertical thigh lifting procedure. However, the patient should keep in mind that there will be lasting traces of the operation on the inner thighs, though they will become less visible in time.
The most effective surgical fat removal treatment is liposuction. Liposuction removes excess fat from below the surface of the skin through tiny incisions. There are different types of liposuction, including Classic liposuction, Vaser liposuction and Laser liposuction. Each type of liposuction has its benefits and risks, our cosmetic surgeon can help you decide which procedure will work best for you. Unlike other body contouring procedures, liposuction does not involve excess skin removal and is not an effective cellulite reduction treatment.
