Thighplasty: Thigh Lift for Sexy Legs

People undergo thigh lifts, or thighplasty, for many reasons - the desire to firm up skin that is sagging due to age, remove excess skin after dramatic weight loss, reduce the appearance of cellulite, or just to sculpt and contour the body into a sexier shape. The purpose of thighplasty is to make your legs look toned and youthful. If you have tried every thigh-toning exercise out there and still aren't getting the results you want, thighplasty may be a great option for you to consider.

Types of Thigh Lifts

There are three main types of thighplasty available today, which include:

Medial Thighplasty
Bilateral Thigh Lift
Inner Thighplasty

Medial thighplasty is ideal for patients who experience discomfort because of the upper inner thigh rubbing together. This procedure lifts the upper part of the leg on the inside through an incision made at the crease of the leg. Fat and extra skin is both removed during this process to provide the results the patient is looking for.

Bilateral procedure works on the top and outer sides of each leg. A surgeon makes an incision in an inconspicuous location on the upper outer leg area and lifts the skin into place to remove excess and tighten what is left. This is an effective solution for anyone whose hip area has that "saddlebag" appearance.

Inner thighplasty involves removal of skin and, in some cases, additional fat. This area can be very hard to target with diet and exercise so it is very common for patients to request improvement here.

As with any cosmetic surgery of this type, there are associated risks and certain people may not be good candidates for surgery. Speak with a doctor about any existing health conditions you have or complications you have experienced in the past with any surgical treatments, particularly those involving frequent infection or anesthesia allergies.

It is very important to go into your surgery with a set of realistic expectations regarding how you will look immediately following the treatment, and after you have fully recovered. While no doctor can completely change a person's appearance, many surgeons are capable of producing excellent work that lives up to their patient's expectations.

Each type of surgery can take two or more hours to complete and are usually done under a general anesthetic. You will be able to go home the same day of the procedure, but it is highly unlikely you will be able to drive - have a good friend or family member take you home and stay with you during your initial 24-hour recovery period.
