The buttocks and thighs are the most difficult areas of the body to lose fat from and to contour and shape according to your desires. Even with dieting and rigorous exercise, the inner and outer thighs might never look exactly the way you want them to.

The fat in the thigh area is the most difficult to burn due to the concentration of fat cells in those areas and the amount of cellulite. Fat or cellulite is also extremely visible in the thigh areas, especially when you sit or fold your legs.

If dieting, exercising, and other means of fat reduction have not helped you achieve your desired thigh shape and contours, consider a thigh lift.

What a Thigh Lift Can Do

A thigh lift is a type of plastic surgery procedure that helps you achieve the desired shape, contours, and proportions of your thighs by removing excess skin and fatty tissue. This can be done before or after a massive weight loss or after pregnancy.

A thighplasty will result in smoother, tighter, and firmer skin in the thigh area and give you shapely, contoured, and attractive upper legs. It can help in improving the proportions of the thighs and lower body by reshaping and recontouring the inner and outer thighs.

This procedure can help you achieve a more youthful appearance and make you look and feel more confident. It can also make your lower body better match the proportions of your upper body. A pear-shaped body is an issue that many people struggle with, where the lower body is bigger or wider than the upper body, and a thighplasty will help correct this.

It can also make your lower body at least one to two sizes smaller, allowing you to better fit into smaller jeans, pants, and skirts. You may be able to finally wear tight and figure-hugging dresses, skirts, and pants without self-consciousness.

How Is a Thigh Lift Surgery Performed?

You will first be administered with IV sedation or general anesthesia, depending on what the plastic surgeon feels is the best option for you. This will help to avoid any pain or discomfort during the procedure.

They will then move on to making the incisions in the inner and outer thighs. The degree of correction and amount of excess fat, skin, and tissue to be removed will determine the exact nature of these incisions.

There are two types of thigh lift incisions that can be made: an inner thigh lift incision and an outer thigh lift incision.

Inner thigh lift incisions are made close to the groin and then extend downward and towards the back of the thighs. Outer thigh lift incisions are made from the groin to the outer thighs and around the hip across the back.

The incisions are strategically placed so that they are not visible when you are wearing swimsuits and short clothing. The incisions are closed with sutures once the excess fat and skin have been removed.
