A thigh lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure done to reshape the thighs by removing excess fat and skin. It is often done in conjunction with liposuction. Thigh lift procedures are frequently done on patients who have lost a lot of weight. Many patients have skin that isn’t elastic enough to fit the contours of a smaller body, so it becomes loose and saggy. A thigh lift can address this and then some.
What Does the Procedure Involve?
The procedure is customized for the patient based on their wants and needs. However, a thigh lift typically involves the removal of fatty tissue and excess skin. Dr. Katzen may also tighten the muscles and pull the remaining skin tight in order to achieve a smooth, nicely contoured shape.
Types of Thigh Lift Procedures
It is important to understand that different techniques may be used during a thigh lift procedure. Some of the most popular techniques include the crescent lift, the long incision technique, the knee reduction and the calf reduction. Certain techniques are more popular with patients who have lost a lot of weight. However, it all depends on the unique situation. The technique used in your case will depend on a variety of factors and will ultimately be determined during a consultation with Dr. Katzen.
