Many people who have undergone drastic weight loss struggle with sagging skin on their thighs, leading to discomfort and an unbalanced appearance. Luckily, there is a solution: Thigh Lift (Thighplasty) Surgery. Unlike liposuction (body contouring), which isolates very specific regions of fat underneath the skin, thigh lift surgery affects the appearance of a larger area by removing layers of fatty tissue and excess skin on the inner and/or outer thigh.
Atlanta Plastic Surgery, P.C.’s plastic and reconstructive surgeons perform inner, bilateral, and medial thigh lifts to help reduce and tighten remaining tissues in the respective regions of the leg. For post weight-loss patients who may have multiple areas of excess skin, thighplasty can be performed in conjunction with abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), arm lift (brachioplasty), and body lift procedures.
Post bariatric surgery patients enjoy the freedom that accompanies shedding pounds of fat, but are often encumbered by the excess, hanging skin that is left behind. Because the skin’s elasticity is limited, many massive weight-loss patients seek thigh lift surgery (thighplasty) to rid them of the unsightly skin and complete the transformation they’ve worked so hard to accomplish.
