Saggy or dimpled, loose tissue and skin on the thighs make many a women feel low to see how she looks in her miniskirt or bathing suit. Some men also are conscious about, and want to get rid of, the excess fat and flab in this area. Then there are people who have lost large amounts of weight as a result of bariatric surgery which has left them with shapeless thighs.
A thigh lift (thighplasty) is a body contouring procedure that aims to reshape thighs in a way that brings them in aesthetic proportion to the buttocks, abs and legs. The procedure helps reduce excess skin and fat in the thigh and knee area, resulting in a redefined and contoured thigh.
Aesthetically, a perfect pair of thighs is distinguished by its characteristic features for the inner and outer portions as well as when viewed from the front and back. The benchmark for the back requires that they should look apart from the buttocks forming a well-defined fold. The standard for the front is a smooth but muscular appearance. The inner thighs are supposed to be firm and flat. And the outer thighs in conjunction with the trunk and the waist above should form a figure similar to an hourglass.
Accordingly, there are several types of thigh lifts each focusing on a specific region of the thighs. The choice is made depending on each patient’s unique situation, her needs and wants. For example, individuals with moderate amount of skin sagging and fat deposits in the inner thighs, a medial thighplasty, which is the most popular type, can be performed to them into shape, while those with more significant fat and loose skin may need a vertical thighplasty, which is more involved and invasive.
