A thigh lift is well suited for those with loose surplus skin from weight loss
A thigh lift is a plastic surgery procedure designed to achieve firmer and more attractive-looking thighs and legs. This surgical procedure is well suited for those who have loose, surplus skin as a consequence of weight loss. Many candidate patients have already undergone weight-loss surgical procedures such as gastric bypass or laparoscopic banding procedures. There are several technical choices.
Three technical variations of this surgery are performed. The location and volume of thigh redundancy determine the choice of technique. Below is a description of the technical variations of this surgical procedure.
Is the scar visible?
Thigh lift procedures leave noticeable scars. Often these scars are justified by the substantial redundant flabby skin and fat along the inseam of the thigh. Most surgeons design skin excisions so that the scars can be concealed by undergarments and bikini wear. At your consultation, be sure to discuss your preferred undergarments with the planned location of skin excisions and resulting scars.
