Flaunt Leaner, Firmer Thighs
Fitness and weight loss efforts alone sometimes just aren’t enough. Or perhaps you dropped the fat, but the excess skin leaves you running for a wrap on a day at the pool or has you avoiding shorts altogether. Whatever you situation, Cosmetic Plastic Surgery of Illinois has a solution for you with a thigh lift.
What Thigh Lifts Do
A thigh lift helps reshape the thighs by reducing excess skin and in some cases fat. This results in thighs that have smoother skin (say goodbye cellulite look) and better proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body. Thigh lifts will not simply remove the fat. That’s liposuction’s job – especially if your skin has good elasticity. If skin elasticity is poor, a combination of liposuction and a thigh lift is recommended.
What to Expect from a Thigh Lift
Typically, you will be given general anesthesia during a thigh lift. If you’re having an inner thigh lift, your surgeon will make an incision in the groin area and follow that line downward, wrapping around the back of the thigh. From there skin is reduced and reshaped, resulting in a more proportionate and smoother body contours. If you’re having an outer thigh lift, the path of the incision will go from groin to hip. Both locations are easily covered by clothing and swimsuits because they follow the natural contours of your body.
