Many men and women find that their upper legs are a problem area, especially as they get older. Diet and exercise can help you look more toned and slim, but the upper legs can be resistant to change, even if you’ve lost a lot of weight elsewhere. Sagging skin can also be a problem as you get older because your skin loses elasticity.
Fortunately, you don’t have to deal with embarrassment or anger that you can’t maintain toned upper legs because an inner thigh lift in Dallas can help you get firmer upper legs. A thigh lift, sometimes called a ‘thighplasty,’ includes the removal of extra fat, skin, and tissue, which helps to tone and refine the legs.
Who Is a Suitable Candidate?
If you have sagging skin on your thighs, a thigh lift could be right for you. However, you should be at your ideal weight or close to it, have good overall health, and have realistic expectations about the procedure and what it can do.
There are many thigh lift techniques available, but the inner thigh lift targets your inner thighs. It is designed to help people remove excess fat from that area, and it can also be used if you have reduced skin elasticity. During the procedure, your surgeon makes an incision in the junction where your pubic area and thigh meet. That way, the surgeon can access all the underlying tissues without having to make a significantly noticeable incision. Many women find that their undergarments cover the incision, making it less noticeable and embarrassing.
After making the incision, the plastic surgeon removes some skin and fat from the area and tightens the skin so that it improves the contour of your leg. Most of the time, people choose to have both thighs done for symmetry purposes.
