What is a thigh lift?

Weight loss is a tremendous achievement for any person. In some cases, men and women who achieve their goal weight sometimes need one extra step to finalize their physical transformation. Based on how long you were overweight and how much of that weight you lost, excess skin can be an added difficulty if the skin wasn't able to mold to the new size and shape of your body. The thighs are especially areas of trouble for most people. Board-certified cosmetic surgeons Dr. Erik Nuveen and Dr. Courtney Caplin offer thigh lift surgery at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates in Jacksonville, FL, which trims extra skin on the inner and outer thighs to produce a firmer, more contoured appearance. Thigh lift surgery has increased in popularity since it offers natural results for anyone battling hanging skin on the thighs.

HOW IS THIGH LIFT SURGERY DONE?

A thigh lift is a skin tightening and removal treatment that corrects hanging skin. Thigh lift surgery is often considered an after weight loss procedure. If you have wrinkly, hanging, or loose skin on your upper thighs (whether it's the inner or outer thigh or both), thigh lift surgery can be a good option. An incision is made around the top of the thigh in the natural fold where the thigh and torso meet. This allows enough space to perform surgical liposuction (if wanted) to remove isolated pockets of fat and to excise the excess skin at the upper thigh. The remaining skin will be stretched upward so it can be tightened and secured with sutures. In specific patients, an incision may be necessary in the outer thigh area or underneath the buttocks, depending on the quantity of tissue being removed. Thigh lift surgery at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates reshapes the whole thigh area, leaving a tighter, shapelier, more contoured appearance.
