What Is A Thigh Lift?
In most women, fat is found throughout the thighs, specifically the inner and outer thighs, the saddlebags and the hips. Some women have fat deposits only on the outer edges of the thighs, while others have fat bulges on the inside.
The thighs and hips specifically contain large amounts of the enzyme lipase, which causes these areas to store fat quickly. This may be why the thighs and hips are two areas that seem especially resistant to diet and exercise.
Is Thigh Lift for me?
A thigh lift reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin, and in some cases fat, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body. When performing the lift, a surgeon may remove either medial (inner) thigh skin or outer (lateral) thigh skin.
If fitness and weight loss efforts have not helped achieved your goals, a surgical thigh lift may be right for you.
What to Expect?
The results of thigh lift surgery are visible almost immediately, but it may take several weeks for your final results to fully develop. Over time, some visible scars will remain, but your results are long lasting, provided that you maintain a stable weight and general fitness. Scars also improve with time with maximum improvement requiring one year. As your body ages, it is natural to lose some firmness. However, most of your results should be relatively permanent.
