Thigh Lift Bluffton
Prone to the effects of both gravity and time, the thighs can also be a prime area for fat collection and the accumulation of baggy skin folds. Significant weight loss or the use of liposuction as a sole form of fat treatment can all lead to sagging and loose skin in the thigh area. The inner thigh is typically the leg area that is most likely to first show the signs of aging such as sagging skin and undesirable shaping, however, many patients express concern about the appearance of both their inner and outer thighs and thus thigh lift treatments commonly address both of these zones. This is especially true for those individuals who have experienced dramatic and rapid weight loss. The thigh lift is an effective way to tighten the skin in this area, reduce stubborn and unwanted fat collections and re-contour the legs to achieve a more pleasant look.
Approximately a two-hour process, the thigh lift will entail both liposuction and the removal of unwanted skin to achieve a tighter, toned appearance. The typical goal of the thigh lift procedure is to create legs that are in proper proportion to the surrounding body areas while possessing a smooth, taut look. Many patients who opt to have a thigh lift performed do so because they are unable to achieve sufficient improvements in this area through diet and exercise alone or must contend with the sagging thigh skin that diet and exercise have produced.
