Thigh Lift

A thigh lift can improve leg appearance by reducing excess, sagging skin, and in some cases fat, which results in a smoother, more contoured look. Incisions for thigh lifts are specially placed in natural body folds, in locations that allow clothing to cover your scars. Candidates for thigh lift surgery should be healthy, non-smokers with good skin elasticity. Patients should also have a realistic expectation about results and be able to understand risks and benefits involved.
