Are you already tired of sweating out too much in the gym but never achieving the slimmer and leaner thighs you have always dreamed of? All your efforts might just be worthless. As we age, our skin loses elasticity, making it almost impossible to achieve a firmer thigh. Then again, there’s nothing to worry about because there is a solution — thigh lift surgery.
Why Is Thigh Lift Done?
Thigh lift surgery is done to tighten loose skin that sags in one’s inner or outer thighs. Loose skin sometimes does not respond to diet or exercise. Even liposuction may not correct drooping skin since it only gets rid of the fat and is not able to improve the skin’s ability to snap back to its proper position after being stretched. This loss of elasticity may be caused by aging or massive weight loss.
Who Needs the Traditional Inner Thigh Lift?
Patients who have mild sagging in the thighs may opt for an inner thigh lift. This is done by removing some skin and fat and making an incision closure between the thigh and pubic area. This technique will result to the lifting and tightening of the skin in the lower thigh. This is also a more preferred technique by patients who wish to have minimal scarring on the inside of one’s thigh. It may not work well on patients who have severe cases of sagging skin.
What Are the Options of Patients with Severe Sagging?
For those whose loose skin problems are more advanced, which often occurs on patients who have lost a massive amount of weight, they may need a vertical incision along the inside of the leg to get rid of more loose skin in the area and achieve long-term results. Scars may be more noticeable with this technique.
