Thigh Lift Techniques
Toned, smooth thighs are difficult to achieve. The area of the upper legs easily accumulates fat. Cellulite and sagging, flabby skin is also common in the upper legs. Sagging, wrinkled skin of the upper legs is a common problem for many men and women that have lost a large amount of weight. Massive weight loss can leave sagging, droopy skin on many areas of the body including the thighs. Through thigh lift surgery, a more aesthetically pleasing and better proportionate thigh contour can be achieved. At his plastic surgery practice in Minneapolis, Dr. Gregory T. Mesna utilizes thigh lift techniques to create a more toned appearance to the upper legs.
Through thigh lift surgery, excess skin is removed and the thighs are reshaped to achieve a smoother, more proportionate contour to the upper legs. Sagging, droopy skin in the upper leg region can affect both men and women. To target the many problem areas of the thighs, different thigh lift techniques may be utilized. A small number of patients experiencing minimal or no sagging in the thigh area with small areas of excess fat deposits may only require liposuction. Liposuction is designed to restore a slimmer, more trim contour through the removal of excess fat deposits. Liposuction may be performed in conjunction with thigh lift surgery to achieve the best result.
Thigh Lift Techniques: Inner Thigh Lift
An inner thigh lift is designed to target the problem area of the inner upper leg. The inner thighs often do not respond to diet and exercise. While the thighs may become smaller in size, excess fat may still linger in the upper thighs even after losing weight. Skin that has lost elasticity from the natural aging process or as a result of gaining and losing weight can be addressed through lift surgery.
Thigh Lift Techniques: Bilateral Thigh Lift
In the bilateral thigh lift technique, the skin on the outside and front of the leg is addressed. Men and women that have achieved massive weight loss often benefit from this thigh lift technique. During surgery, the skin of the left and right sides of the leg is tightened creating a more proportionate, toned appearance to the thigh.
Thigh Lift Techniques: Medial Thigh Lift
During medial thigh lift surgery, the skin and fat of the upper region of the inner thigh is addressed. This thigh lift technique is especially beneficial for patients that are tired of their thighs rubbing together when walking and for patients that have lost a massive amount of weight. In the medial thigh lift technique, excess fat is removed and sagging skin is lifted and tightened to bring an improved, more proportionate contour to the thighs.
