Often a part of an overall body lift, a thigh lift is a cosmetic surgery that removes excess tissue and lifts the skin around the thigh to fit the patient’s desired figure. Thigh lifts are an invasive procedure where the incisions made can be customized to fit a person’s particular needs. Some patients need additional lifting around the outside of their thighs, and some may only require minimal lifting.
Consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Carl Lentz is the best way to clarify what type of thigh lift is right for you. If you are interested in improving the shape of the outer thigh area, you may want to consider an outer thigh lift. The outer thigh lift generally requires an extended incision from the groin around the hip in order to allow the surgeon to tighten tissues.
