If sagging or excessive skin is making you unhappy with the appearance of your thighs, then thigh lift surgery may be right for you. Thigh lift treatment can create firm, smooth, contoured thighs when diet and exercise are unable to yield the desired results. There are different thigh lift techniques, which can target specific trouble areas of the thighs. To find out which technique is right for you, we welcome you to schedule a consultation at Dr. David Passaretti's Fairfield-based plastic surgery practice.
If you have excessive, sagging skin of the thighs, whether due to weight loss or aging, thigh lift surgery can help. Thigh lift surgery can be used to create sculpted, firm, youthful looking thighs by removing loose skin and can be paired with liposuction to remove excess fat. There are different approaches to thigh lift surgery to target specific areas. In order to determine the most suitable technique for you, it's best to discuss your desired results and expectations with your surgeon.
For those who are unhappy with the appearance of their inner thighs, the inner thigh lift may be the best option. The inner thigh lift technique is used to create sculpted inner thighs by removing fat and excess skin within this region. Inner thigh lifts are performed through an incision made along the inner thigh and pubic area. Once the incision is made, fat and excess skin is removed and the skin is pulled taut to create firm looking thighs.
The medial thigh lift offers more contouring than the inner thigh lift and is often beneficial to those who have excess skin from weight loss or aging. The medial thigh lift is used to contour the inner thighs along the upper area of the thigh by creating an incision from the groin to the buttock, following the natural crease below the buttock. Excess skin and fat are then removed and the skin is tightened.
When both the front and outer area of the thigh are plagued by excessive, sagging skin, a bilateral thigh lift may be the better option for thigh lift treatment. Bilateral thigh lifts are best suited to those requiring more contouring than an inner or medial thigh lift can provide. Candidates for bilateral thigh lifts are often those who suffer from major skin sagging due to extreme weight loss. The bilateral thigh lift technique is done by creating an incision along the top of the thigh from which a portion of skin is removed. Next, the remaining thigh skin is pulled tight and stitched closed to create firm, contoured thighs.
Thigh lift surgery can improve the appearance of your thighs and restore your confidence. You don't have to let sagging thigh skin keep you from wearing the clothes you want to wear or keep you in long pants during the warm summer months. Thigh lift surgery can give you smooth, sculpted thighs you'll be proud to show off. To find out which treatment is right for you, we invite you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Passaretti today!
