For many people, the upper legs become an increasingly problematic area as they age, while others find that the thighs remain stubbornly resistant to diet and exercise after massive weight loss. Fat cells, cellulite, and excess skin can accumulate on the thighs, making people look heavier, older, and less fit than they actually are. Sagging skin on the thighs can also make people feel self-conscious about their appearance. While some people achieve good results with vigorous exercise and a healthy diet, others find it difficult or even impossible to tone their thighs.
Fortunately, plastic surgery offers a potentially ideal solution in the form of thigh lift surgery. Thigh lift is an excellent way to achieve firmer and more attractive upper legs. This procedure is especially helpful for those who struggle with loose, excess skin as a result of weight loss. A thigh lift, or thighplasty, involves the removal excess skin, fat, and tissue to tone and refine the upper legs.
There are multiple techniques available to plastic surgeons which allow them to customize the thigh lift procedure to the precise needs of each individual patient.
