The thighs can change dramatically with aging and weight gain/loss. Many people have sagging or loose skin on their inner thighs, or noticeable sagging on the outer or front of the thighs. Sagging skin on the thighs usually occurs after an individual has lost a significant amount of weight. To restore firmer, slimmer thighs, a thighplasty, or a thigh lift, can be performed. Dr. Chaudhry at Be That Beautiful™ Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills offers thigh lift procedures.
There are different thigh lift procedures depending on the aesthetic concerns of the patient. Some patients have loose skin on the inner thighs, which can create hanging bags of skin that are uncomfortable and unattractive. Other patients have saddlebags on the outside of the upper thighs or sagging skin on the front of the thighs. The technique and methods used depend on what areas need cosmetic improvement.
Dr. Chaudhry is a highly skilled plastic surgeon who specializes in body contouring procedures. He uses advanced techniques to create natural-appearing results with discreet incisions that are easily hidden. He offers inner, medial and bilateral thigh lift procedures, as well as complete body lift surgery to help remove loose skin.
Thighplasty for Firmer Thighs
Thighs with saggy skin may appear bumpy and droopy. Even if the muscle underneath is well-toned, the thighs look flabby and older. Thighplasty can transform thighs with loose skin, resulting in a firmer, more youthful appearance. Patients with excess fat tissue and skin may combine thigh liposuction and a lift procedure to create the desired results.
Thigh lift incisions are usually made near the groin or bikini line to remove skin. Some patients with excessive loose skin or tissue may have longer incisions to remove the necessary skin. Recovery from thigh lift surgery usually requires at least 7-10 days of rest and healing before returning to work or normal activities.
If you want to remove excess skin and improve the firmness of your thighs, a lift procedure may be right for you.
