WHAT IS a thigh lift?
If exercise and weight loss have not helped you achieve your goals for a firmer and more youthful looking thigh then a thigh lift may be right for you.
A thigh lift is a surgical procedure that reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin, and in some cases fat, resulting in firmer and nicer contours of the thighs.
It does this by:
- Reducing excess sagging skin that hangs downward
- Tightening and smoothening the underlying supportive tissue that defines the shape
