Corrective thigh surgery or a thigh lift is performed to improve the tightness of skin and tone of subcutaneous tissue that has been altered due to ageing, gravity, hormonal changes and/or lifestyle factors. Under the influence of general anesthesia a patient can restore their thigh contours and anatomy back to normal through incisions made in the folds of the groin along the inner thigh.
As people grow older weight loss is sometimes a big hurdle both functionally and aesthetically. Even those who follow healthy lifestyles, their skin soon loose laxity contributed to a saggy overall look. Folds of fat or of loose skin can be displeasing to the sight while also being related to functional and hygiene problems. The constant friction may cause irritation especially in moister areas. Thighoplasty is an overall procedure carried out to address laxity of skin and excess fat all around the inside and outside of the thighs.
