When to Consider a Thigh Lift


A thigh lift is a procedure designed to remove excess fat and skin from either the outer or inner thigh. This helps to better smooth out the thighs to help better suit the

 contours of your body. Excess sagging skin around the thighs often results from loss of skin elasticity, weight fluctuations, and aging. To learn more about thigh lifts or other available body contouring options, contact our Philadelphia practice at 610-355-1929 today!

Thigh lift surgery is desirable for many individuals after bariatric or substantial weight loss. It is also considered by those who have trouble reducing the excess tissue in their thighs through diet and exercise. Reasons to consider a thigh lift include:

  • Difficulty fitting into clothing due to larger thighs that are not proportionate to the rest of your body
  • Extreme weight loss
  • Desire for your thighs to have a firmer look and feel, or to better suit the contours of your body
  • If you feel distress over loose or flabby skin

In combination with the procedure, liposuction is often used to better contour the thigh, allowing for an even more drastic enhancement. As a result, the thighs will appear much smoother and firmer.
