What is a thigh lift?

A thigh lift is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the thighs. It can improve the appearance of the thighs by contouring them and making them look shapelier. The surgery is usually performed on people who are overweight or have lost a lot of weight, as well as those who have experienced significant body changes due to aging.

Thigh lifts and liposuction

Thigh lifts are designed to remove surplus skin, although liposuction is sometimes performed with a thigh lift to excise fat deposits. If your skin tone has good elasticity and the volume of excess skin is low compared to excess fat, liposuction alone may be an option. When used as a complement to a thigh lift, liposuction reduces the quantity of stubborn fatty tissue and refines the skin tone around the upper legs.

How is a thigh lift performed?

The surgical approaches and incision placements for thigh lifts vary depending on the extent and location of excess skin, as well as other individual factors.

Thigh lift incisions are often made in the groin along the inner thighs and extend around the back of the thighs.

 In some cases, a smaller incision in the groin area may be sufficient; in others, incisions may be made on the outer thighs around the hips.

The excess skin is then reduced, and the underlying tissue is tightened and shaped. The remaining outer skin is repositioned and contoured.

What are the benefits of a thigh lift?

A thigh lift in Long Island can provide the following benefits:

Give the thighs a firmer appearance

Weight loss may be an essential part of achieving the look we desire. It can also leave behind sagging excess skin that can greatly affect our self-confidence. A thigh lift can remove this skin and tighten the thigh area.

Improve the appearance of stretch marks

The tightening effect of a thigh lift greatly improves the appearance of stretch marks. 

Minimize chafing and discomfort

Without the excess skin causing unwanted friction and discomfort, you are far less likely to deal with any problems from chafing. 

Reduce rashes and skin infections

Rashes, skin irritations, and infections are common in those with excess thigh skin.

If you engage in a healthy lifestyle and maintain a stable weight range, the results of your thigh lift will be largely permanent. Though some loss of skin tone and skin elasticity is natural with age.
