Thigh Lift

"Enhance Your Physique and Your Confidence with a Thigh Lift"

Are you concerned about loose or flabby skin on your thighs? Sagging most commonly occurs at the inner thighs, and can be corrected with a Thigh Lift. The skin and soft tissues on your thighs can sag because of lost elasticity due to, among other factors, weight gain/weight loss, aging, sun exposure, and genetics. 
Thigh Lift is a body sculpting option to consider. There are two different techniques of Thigh Lift: one that uses a short, horizontal groin scar (Mini Thigh Lift) and another that uses a vertical thigh scar (Vertical Thigh Lift).

Frequently asked questions

A thigh lift, also called a thighplasty, is a procedure to tighten loose and saggy skin and remove excess fat deposits. Age, gravity, and fluctuations in weight can affect the tightness of the thighs; unfortunately, no amount of diet or exercise can counteract the effects of time. This procedure will reshape the thighs by removing excess fat and skin to create a well-proportioned body contour.

If you are within your ideal body weight, have reasonable expectations for the procedure, and would like to address excess fat and tissue in your thighs, you may be a good candidate for thigh lift surgery.

As long as a proper lifestyle is maintained, the thigh lift results are permanent. However, no surgery can prevent the development of future tissue sagging that comes with age.

The types of thigh lifts are the bilateral lift, medial lift, and inner lift. The type of lift that will work best for you depends on your goals, current condition, and health concerns. If you are looking to boost skin elasticity due to age or significant weight loss, then an inner lift may be best for you. A bilateral lift will benefit individuals with excess skin on the upper and/or outer portions of the thighs. A medial lift is best for patients who have experienced extreme weight loss and have excess skin on upper portions of the inner thigh.

Yes, with the help of thigh lift, you can help reduce and tighten loose and saggy excess skin on the inner thighs.

The amount of excess skin removed varies from person to person. The goal is to achieve a contoured and toned looking thigh. The trade-off for skin removal is the thigh lift scar which can be semi-hidden inside the thighs and will fade over time.

Thigh lift surgery is recommended for people with sagging skin. Sometimes, liposuction is a part of the thigh lift procedure. Liposuction is recommended for people who have been looking to lose stubborn fat in targeted area but does not have a lot of sagging skin. Liposuction can also make the saggy skin worse for post weightloss patients.
