Slim Your Legs with a Thigh Lift

While many people may not think of their legs as a problem area, they can be an area of dissatisfaction for many. Surgery to slim the legs is most effective in the upper part of the leg, also known as the thigh. For many individuals, liposuction of the outer or inner thigh or buttock area may improve the appearance of thick legs. For those with excess skin and fat due to weight loss, a thigh lift can often help. Read on to learn more about this procedure.

Who is a Candidate?

Individuals who have a significant amount of extra skin or stubborn areas of fat in the thighs can often benefit from a thigh lift. Candidates will be at a stable weight and have realistic expectations for the outcome. Remember, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle after surgery to maintain long-lasting results.

What to Expect

Results from a thigh lift are immediate, however, they will continue to improve over several months. Following a thigh lift, patients can notice dramatic improvement in the appearance feel, and quality of skin, as well as thinner, more contoured thighs. Some scars may be visible following surgery, but the overall results are long-lasting.

After the thigh lift, a compression garment must be worn to support the new body contours. Small tubes may also be temporarily placed under the skin to collect excess fluid that may build up. This will minimize the risk of any possible complications.
