Are you bothered by the appearance of your thighs even after you have put in the work to lose weight and get in shape? Even if your thigh muscles are toned and strong, loose skin and small pockets of excess fat can completely ruin their appearance. Thankfully these issues can be addressed through a surgical procedure known as a thigh lift.

What Is a Thigh Lift?

A thigh lift, also known as thighplasty, is a surgical body contouring procedure that is performed to give the thighs a smoother, tighter, and more attractive appearance. There are two types of thigh lifts that our team offers at Chennai Plastic Surgery.

The medial thigh lift is performed to remove excess skin and fat from the inner thigh. During this procedure, an incision is made from around the groin area that extends down to the inner portion of the thigh.

A lateral thigh lift, also referred to as an outer thigh lift, is performed to give the outer thighs a smoother and tighter appearance with improved tone. The incisions for a lateral thigh lift are made from around the hip and will extend down towards the groin. Excess skin and fat will be surgically removed during the process.

Is a Thigh Lift Right for Me?

Good candidates for a thigh lift should be healthy and close to their ideal body weight. The best way to determine if a thigh lift is right for you is to come in for a consultation. Some good indications that you may be a good candidate for a thigh lift include:

  • Significant amounts of loose excess thigh skin
  • Stubborn pockets of excess fat around the thighs
  • Recent major weight loss
  • Mobility issues due to the presence of excess thigh tissue
