The thighs can be one of the most frustrating parts of the body to sculpt for many women. Often, diet and exercise are not enough, and you are still left with excess sagging skin in your thigh area despite all of your hard work.
What Is the Thigh Lift Procedure?
Surgical approaches to thigh lifts vary based on the amount of skin to be removed from the thighs and individual factors such as your skin tone and remaining skin elasticity. Thigh lift surgery is usually performed under local or general anesthesia and begins with an incision being made in your groin region, between your upper thigh and your upper body.
From there, excess skin is excised, and any extra fat deposits are removed using liposuction. Liposuction is sometimes performed in conjunction with thigh lifts to remove stubborn fat deposits and further refine the contours of the upper legs. The remaining skin is pulled tight and contoured before being sutured shut.
