If you’ve lost a significant amount of weight, you may be ready to show off your new results. However, if sagging skin on your thighs after weight loss is holding you back, you may be a good candidate for a thigh lift.
Remove Sagging Skin with a Thigh Lift
A thigh lift is a surgical procedure designed to remove excess skin that didn’t “snap back” after significant weight loss. It can also help address aging and sagging skin that may have lost its elasticity. Either way, the goal of the surgery is to help minimize the appearance of sagging skin, helping patients feel confident and secure showing off their thighs in shorts, skirts, and bathing suits!
The thigh lift surgery is typically performed by making small incisions along the inner thigh or groin crease. This allows your plastic surgeon to access thigh muscles and re-adjust them for a more youthful appearance. After the muscles have been repositioned, your plastic surgeon will remove excess skin and close the incisions to reveal your newly contoured thighs.
Candidates for a Thigh Lift
If thigh lift surgery sounds like something you’d be interested in, here’s how to tell if you’re a good candidate for this procedure:
- You’ve recently lost a significant amount of weight and you’ve experienced sagging skin around the thighs as a result, or your thigh skin has been getting saggier as you’ve aged.
- You follow a healthy lifestyle and are willing to commit to your recovery plan.
- You are a nonsmoker with normal blood pressure.
The best way to find out of you’re a candidate for a thigh lift is to schedule a consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Rudy Coscia. He’ll work with you to determine if a thigh lift is the right surgical procedure for you, as well as what you can expect from it.
