If you’ve been struggling to get rid of extra fat on your thighs, but can’t seem to achieve the slim, contoured thighs you desire, a thigh lift may be the solution for you. A thigh lift is a great way to shape and contour your thighs. But how can you tell if you’re an ideal candidate for a thigh lift.
What is a thigh lift?
A thigh lift(thighplasty) is a procedure that is done to tone the thighs by removing excess fat and sagging skin. A thigh lift may involve surgeryon the inner thighs (medial thigh lift), and/or the outer thighs (lateral thigh lift). The procedure is typically done on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. Recovery time ranges from 2-3 weeks.
Are you a good candidate?
If you have a moderate amount of sagging skin and fat on the inner and outer thighs that you’ve been unable to reduce with sensible dieting and exercise, you may be a good candidate for a thigh lift. The procedure is especially beneficial for patients that have undergone significant weight loss, and have a lot of loose skin on the thighs because of it.
Candidates should also be as healthy as possible, and be non-smokers.
If you are contemplating thigh lift surgery, it’sbest to meet with a plastic surgeon to assess your cosmetic needs, and discuss your expectations. The surgeon will conduct athoroughphysical examination, before determining your candidacy.
