Are you less than happy with your thighs? If so, then you may be interested in learning more about thigh lift surgery. Thigh lift surgery is a body sculpting procedure that reshapes the thigh and creates a more appealing silhouette. Many people turn to this cosmetic procedure when diet and exercise simply aren’t enough.

Patients generally seek thigh lift surgery following weight loss, pregnancy, or because of other concerns commonly associated with natural aging. No matter your reason, a thigh lift surgery can help you to regain your confidence and give you the body you’ve always wanted.

At Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa, we are committed to making sure our patients are as informed as possible, so let’s discuss some of the benefits of thigh lift surgery.

Tightens Muscles

It is not uncommon for muscles to loosen over time. When this happens, it can make the thighs appear saggy and cause them to rub together. Thigh lift surgery can tighten the muscles or tie them together to give the thighs a much more youthful shape. In some instances, thighs rub together due to lack of muscle tightness rather than loose skin, but thigh lift surgery can be a solution for both.

Removes Excess Skin

Following pregnancy or significant weight loss, it is incredibly common for skin to become saggy, especially on the thighs. Thigh lift surgery can tighten the skin and offer a more desirable silhouette. Whether skin elasticity issues are due to weight loss, pregnancy, or aging—thigh lift surgery can repair it.

Removes Fat

Thigh lift surgery isn’t exactly considered a fat removal surgery itself, but it is not uncommon for liposuction to be used in conjunction with the surgery to remove excess fat deposits throughout the thigh area which results in a smoother, slimmer thigh.

Minimizes Stretch Marks

As the skin is tightened through thigh lift surgery, stretch marks won’t be as visible. This is especially effective for lighter, surface-level stretch marks. However, deeper stretch marks may require further skin resurfacing treatments.

Reduces Chances of Infection

In some instances, larger thighs can create a host of skin issues. As the skin rubs together, moisture can become trapped allowing fungi and bacteria to thrive. This can lead to a variety of infections that can be both painful and difficult to treat. Thigh lift surgery can reduce the skin folds and limit the chances of infection.

Restores Confidence

Thighs can be a sensitive topic for a lot of people, so know that you aren’t alone in any insecurities you may have.  And fortunately, there are solutions, including thigh lift surgery, that can help restore your appearance and help you feel more comfortable in your own body.

Makes Clothes Shopping More Enjoyable

How many times have you gotten frustrated in a dressing room? If you have ever spent extra time trying to find the perfect outfit to hide your thighs, a lift may be just what you need.

Shopping should be a fun and enjoyable experience and correcting the shape of your thighs can help make that happen! Finally, you’ll be able to choose clothes because you like them and not because they are hiding parts of your body that you are unhappy with.
