If you’re looking to improve the appearance of your thighs by removing excess skin and fat, a thigh lift may be the solution for you.
At Renaissance Plastic Surgery, we’ve seen this surgical procedure, also known as a leg lift, help patients achieve tighter, toned, and more attractive thighs. Patients often combine this procedure with a lower body lift.
What Is a Thigh Lift?
This cosmetic surgical procedure is designed to address sagging, wrinkling, or dimpled skin on the inner and outer thighs.
Commonly performed in conjunction with liposuction to refine the contours of the legs, the procedure involves removing excess skin and fat. This results in a more defined and aesthetically pleasing shape.
At Renaissance Plastic Surgery, Dr. Paul Mills specializes in performing thigh lifts to help patients achieve their desired appearance.
Benefits of a Thigh Lift
Patients at Renaissance Plastic Surgery have embraced thigh lifts for their varied benefits. These benefits include:
- Enhanced leg definition: Through the removal of excess skin and fat, a thigh lift brings added definition and contour to the thighs, creating a more attractive leg shape.
- Improved self-confidence: Thigh lift surgery can help individuals feel more confident and comfortable in their own skin, especially after weight loss.
- Customizable procedure: Thigh lifts can be personalized to address certain concerns, such as patients who desire less excess skin on the inner or outer thighs.
- Combination with other procedures: A thigh lift can be performed alongside other body contouring procedures to transform their physique.
How a Thigh Lift Works
During a thigh lift procedure, the surgeon will make small incisions near excess skin and fat on the thighs. The technique varies depending on individual needs and circumstances. Once excess skin and fat have been removed, surgeons tighten and reposition the remaining skin.
Often, liposuction is also used to remove localized pockets of fat. Post-surgery, our specialists wrap the thighs in gauze and an elastic compression bandage. This reduces swelling and bruising. However, full recovery typically takes between three to four weeks.
