The loss of skin elasticity and changes in subcutaneous fat tissue in the thighs, which can occur due to factors like age, genetics, significant weight gain or loss, can lead to sagging, size, and shape irregularities. With thigh lift surgery, patients can achieve tighter and more youthful-looking thighs.
Why Do Thighs Sag?
Thigh sagging can result from practices such as strict diets and rapid weight loss due to procedures like gastric bypass surgery. Additionally, factors such as age, excessive sun exposure, environmental factors, and genetic predisposition can contribute to thigh sagging.
How Is Thigh Lift Surgery Performed?
Thigh lift surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia, although sometimes it can be done with local anesthesia. The surgery generally lasts 2-3 hours. The inner thighs, which are the least visible areas from the outside, are where the incision marks will be.
