A thigh lift is an ideal cosmetic procedure for people who are bothered by excess skin on the inside or outside of the thighs. Typically a result of extreme weight loss, excess skin is characterized by drooping and dangling skin tissue on the inside or outside of the thighs. Aging causes a loss of skin elasticity, which affects people differently. Typically, a thigh lift can be performed on the inside or the outside of the thighs. The length of the incision may vary as well, depending on the amount of tissue to be removed. The smaller thigh lift, a medial thigh lift, involves a small incision around the natural crease of the thigh groin area. The larger, outer thigh lift extends the incision around the top of the hips around towards the buttocks. Consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Michael Sundine to discuss what technique is right for you.
