Many Phoenix women report that they are unhappy with the appearance of their thighs. The presence of fullness or extra fat in this area can be improved by diet, exercise, or by liposuction. However, the effects of aging or after significant weight loss, there is often loose or sagging skin and soft-tissue that can only be corrected by a thigh lift. The thigh lift or thighplasty procedure is performed to help improve the contour and appearance of the inner thigh area. There are a variety of thigh lift procedures available to suit different anatomical concerns, and to create the desired result.
Thigh Lift Procedure Options
Medial (inner) thigh lift: An incision is made in the groin area, and any excess fat and skin are excised along the inner aspect of the thigh. Liposuction may be, but is not always included in this procedure, depending on your individual requirements. The area from the groin to the knee is recontoured and the procedure is repeated for the other thigh. If a more substantial wedge of tissue is removed, the procedure is called a thighplasty.
Lateral (outer) thigh lift: This is a more complex procedure, usually involving recontouring of the buttocks as well as the outer thighs and removal of more tissue. Scarring is more extensive, and the skin will be less elastic after the surgery, so weight should be maintained.
