Aging affects the body in many different ways. As time passes, the skin loses its ability to cope with the effects of gravity and tends to sag. Sagging often affects the arms, stomach, breasts, buttocks and thighs. If sagging in the thighs concerns you, a thigh lift may be an ideal solution.

The thigh lift is often performed as part of post-bariatric surgery or when a patient has experienced dramatic changes in body shape. With dramatic weight loss, pregnancy or extreme fluctuations in weight, the skin stretches and fails to recover its original shape. The thigh lift is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and tightens the skin for a more natural body contour. Consult with an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Michael Sundine for more information about thigh lifts. Contact us to schedule a consultation today.
