A Thigh Lift is a procedure of cosmetic surgery designed to remove excess and loose skin from the thighs and buttocks. When skin of the thigh area has good elasticity, liposuction is good enough to get smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body. When elasticity of your skin is poor, it may be the best to combine Liposuction with a Thigh Lift.
A surgical thigh lift is mostly focused on the inner thigh, where the excess of loose and sagging skin is the largest. The different types of thigh lift surgery vary according to the path and the pattern of the incision (scar). The most popular are:
- Inner Thigh Lift - The incision starts in the groin and goes downward around the back of the thigh. Due to the fact that you can see the scar line wearing a short dress, this method is rarely used. Although its advantage is the possibility of simultaneous knee-shape correction.
- Medial Thigh Lift - The incision is in the groin crease and below the buttock folds. The incision is placed in the location where it can be hidden by most types of clothing and swimsuits. You can combine it with buttocks or abdomen surgery to improve the whole body shape.
In edition to these operations performed to remove excess tissue you can also enlarge too small buttocks and calves with special silicone liners.
