A thigh lift reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin, and in some cases fat, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body. If fitness and weight loss efforts have not achieved your goals for a body that is firmer, more youthful-looking and proportionate to your overall body image, a surgical thigh lift may be right for you.
The goals of a thigh lift are to reduce excess soft tissue along the inner thigh region and/or the outer thigh, to diminish excess skin after severe weight loss, to provide your thighs a smooth firm appearance, and to improve your body contour.
