It is common for women who have extra skin on the thighs from weight loss or pregnancy to avoid wearing shorts or swimsuits. If you’ve tried diet and exercise and are not happy with the results, a surgical intervention may be the best option to reach your aesthetic goals.
Changes in skin elasticity and the inevitable effects of gravity as we age can cause excess skin to develop on or around the thigh area. This excess skin may be caused by significant weight loss, after bariatric surgery, after pregnancy or by hereditary reasons. If you have excess skin and fat in the thighs, a thigh lift may be the best option to regain toned thighs. The thigh lift can be performed in conjunction with liposuction for fat reduction as well. Thigh lifts can address problems areas of both the inner and outer thighs. During a consultation with Dr. Swetnam, he will discuss the surgical technique and what you can expect after the surgery.
