Thigh Lift

If you’re considering a thigh lift in Bryan Texas or in College Station
There are two types of thigh lifts, inner and outer. They are major surgical procedures to remove excess skin and fat from the thighs. The outer thigh lift is commonly combined with a buttock lift or a buttock and abdominoplasty in a Lower Body Lift. The inner and outer thigh lifts are usually not done at the same time. The procedure can dramatically improve the appearance of the thighs. But bear in mind, it does produce a permanent scar, which, depending on the extent of the original problem and the surgery required to correct it.

The Best Candidates for Thigh Lifts

The best candidates are men or women who are in relatively good shape but are bothered by a large fat deposit or loose skin that won’t respond to diet or exercise. Loss of skin elasticity in older patients, which frequently occurs with obesity, can also be improved.

Patients who intend to lose a lot of weight should postpone the surgery. Also, women who plan future pregnancies should wait.

Thigh lifts can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence, but it won’t necessarily change your looks to match your ideal, or cause other people to treat you differently. Before you decide to have surgery, think carefully about your expectations and discuss them with your surgeon.
