Is a Thigh Lift Right for Me?

Many things such as hair, upper body weight, skin complexion change drastically over time, and these changes can be overwhelming at times — especially for women.

A major area of a woman’s body that is affected with age is her upper thighs. This area of a woman’s body can build up a lot of extra fat, cellulite, and sagging skin that is difficult to get rid of through normal means such as exercising or going on a strict diet.

Keep reading to learn if a thigh lift is right for you at Luxe Plastic Surgery.

How Does a Thigh Lift Work?

Excess skin is particularly hard to get rid of because vigorous exercise may only partially improve its tightness. However, a thigh lift is a viable option if you are seeking to counteract the aging process in your thighs. This procedure helps reshape the look of your thighs and create a more desirable appearance. You can also fix a host of other problems such as getting rid of that extra skin and removing fat, all while making the skin stronger and tighter.

What to Expect During Your Procedure

Typically, Dr. Kutty starts the body surgery by making incisions from the outer thigh or starting in the groin area and works his/herway down in order to contour the thigh. This is typically called a medial thigh lift and usually focuses on getting rid of a large amount of extra skin in your inner thigh.

Am I a Good Candidate?

The first thing you want to do when deciding if you are the right candidate for this procedure is to talk to a qualified plastic surgeon. At Luxe Plastic Surgery, Dr. Kutty will be able to schedule an appointment with you and go over medical history, current health, and any other positive or negative factors pertaining to your unique body type and age.

However, there are a few things you can consider beforehand to help you find out if you will be a good candidate for this procedure.

  • If you have proper body weight for your particular height.
  • If you have extra skin or fat In your inner thigh or outer thigh.
  • If you do not smoke.
  • If you have a healthy diet and a consistent exercise routine.

The best thing to remember is that even though you may be self-conscious about how your thighs look, it is a natural condition and is not abnormal to have extra skin or extra fat in that area.

However, if you feel like a thigh lift will increase your positive feelings about yourself and you are in the right condition to have the procedure done, this procedure may be suitable for you.
