A thigh lift is a surgical procedure that improves the overall appearance of your legs, leaving them toned and firm after weight loss. There are several different types of thigh lift procedures that each targets certain areas to produce the most effective results for each individual patient. These different types include:
- Inner Thigh Lift – This procedure targets the inner thigh and helps remove stubborn excess fat from this troublesome area. An incision is made in the area where the thigh and pubic area meet, and then skin and fat are removed and tightened to enhance skin elasticity and the overall appearance of the leg.
- Bilateral Thigh Lift – This procedure targets the front and outside of the leg through the top of the leg. Excess fat and skin are removed and the remaining skin is tightened on both sides of the leg to improve the leg contour.
- Medial Thigh Lift – A medial thigh lift targets the upper portion of the inner thigh through an incision that stretches from the groin to the back crease of the buttock. This procedure removes excess skin and improves the shape of the leg.
