You’ve probably heard of a facelift and breast lift, but did you know there are procedures designed for the lower body as well? If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your thighs, a thigh lift, or thighplasty, may be able to help..
Reasons to Get a Thigh Lift
Thigh lifts are most commonly recommended for weight loss patients with excess skin.
Types of Thigh Lifts
As with any other plastic surgery procedure, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to thighplasty. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Lee Colony will create a personalized surgery plan during a consultation for thigh lift, which can include one of these procedures:
- Inseam inner thigh lift – Removes excess skin and fat from the inner thighs from the groin to the knee.
- Medial thigh lift – Addresses the upper part of the inner thighs.
What a Thigh Lift Can Do
A thigh lift can improve issues people may face if they have loose or excess skin. These include chafing, dimpling, and sagging skin, but can also just be an unflattering appearance that you would like to have enhanced.
What a Thigh Lift Cannot Do
A thigh lift won’t completely change the appearance of your thighs—rather, it is Dr. Colony’s priority to give your legs a natural appearance that is harmonious with the rest of your body proportions. A thigh lift is also not a weight loss procedure. Dr. Colony recommends patients be at or close to their goal weight before undergoing most plastic surgery procedures, including thigh lift.
