The thighs are a part of the body that many women often focus much of their attention on. Unfortunately, this also tends to be the area that is most problematic as well, due to the accumulation of fat that is stored here. Although some women can eliminate these stubborn fat deposits and achieve good-looking thighs through regular diet and exercise regimens, others may find it nearly impossible. This problem of jiggly inner thighs can cause a woman to feel less attractive and also discourage her from wearing certain types of clothing such as shorts and mini skirts.
When diet and exercise are not enough, plastic surgery offers an effective way to get thighs that are more toned and attractive in appearance.
A thigh lift is done on an outpatient basis and takes just a couple hours to perform. The procedure involves making incisions on the inside of the thighs to remove excess skin and fat. During this procedure, liposuction is performed using a cannula (small thin tube) that is inserted underneath the skin to remove the excess fat via suction. After the sagging skin is excised, the remaining skin is pulled tight to reveal slimmer, more contoured thighs. The incisions are then closed with dissolvable sutures.
Am I a Candidate?
You may be a candidate for thigh lift surgery if you are in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the results from the procedure. It is important to refrain from smoking or taking any anti-inflammatory drugs, such as aspirin, since this can increase your risk fo bleeding. It is also recommended that you are at a stable body weight and have already tried to get rid of excess fat deposits through regular dieting and exercise before undergoing plastic surgery.
