What is a Thigh Lift?

A thigh lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure to tighten and improve the appearance of your thighs due to excess skin on your thighs that can be a result of aging, pregnancy, or a significant weight loss. Your thighs may look dimpled with sagging skin or have a flabby appearance. The goal of a thigh lift is to lift and contour your thighs so that they look slim and in proportion with the rest of your body.

Are you a candidate for a Thigh Lift?

You’ll need to be at or near your healthy body weight before getting a thigh lift. If you have a thigh lift and then lose weight, you’ll end up with more excess skin. And if you gain weight afterwards, you’ll ruin the results of the thigh lift surgery. In other words, a good candidate for a thigh lift is a person who is dedicated to following a healthy diet and exercise plan that maintains a stable weight.
