Cosmetic Thigh Reduction
Cosmetic thigh reduction (Thigh Lift) surgery is performed to tighten sagging and excess skin from the thighs to restore a more youthful and appealing body contour. Thigh lift is particularly beneficial to individuals with large amounts of loose, hanging skin on the inner and outer thighs, which may result from ageing or major weight loss.
A thigh lift procedure may involve an incision made in the groin area (Horizontal incision). In addition, a vertical incision extending along the inner thigh from the groin to the inner knee may be required to decrease the circumference of your thigh. This is often combined with liposuction to improve the contour of your thighs.
Some thigh lift candidates may be interested in incorporating other body contouring procedures to be performed at the same time. Abdominoplasty (‘Tummy Tuck’) is often a procedure that is combined with thigh lift.
Arm lift surgery, otherwise known as brachioplasty, is a procedure to reshape the upper arm through reduction of excess skin and fat, resulting in smoother, tighter skin and improved contour of the arm. The procedure tightens and smooths underlying supportive tissue that defines the shape of the arm whilst reducing localised pockets of adipose tissue (fat).
