As we age, the combined effects of gravity, surgeries, fluctuations in weight, and loss of skin elasticity contribute to loss of tone in the thighs. Saggy or flabby thighs, for any reason, can negatively affect the way you feel about yourself.
Many women can attest to avoiding certain social situations and recreational activities, sometimes missing out on opportunities in life, simply because they feel that they cannot change that part of themselves. And, if diet with exercise doesn’t help, it’s easy to give up. You may tell yourself ‘this is the way that it is,’ thinking there are no other options. Fortunately, with modern liposuction and body contouring techniques, there are other options.
What is Thighplasty or a Thigh Lift?
Liposuction can be used to address stubborn fat deposits in the outer and inner thighs.
A thigh lift, or thighplasty, addresses inner or outer thighs that can sometimes hang excessively and with a great deal of loose skin. In cases such as bariatric surgery or accelerated aging, liposuction alone will increase loose skin making the thighs look worse. In these cases, a thigh lift is a better option. It combines liposuction (when needed), removal of excess skin, and tightening of loose skin.
