An Effective Complement for Beautiful Legs

When the skin looses its elasticity over time, one of the first effects may be excessive skin forming at the inner side of the thighs. There, the skin and any connective tissues are particularly thin. This in turn is not merely an aesthetic issue – if the thighs chafe against each other, this can lead to skin irritation and rashes. Potentially disappointing for all those who successfully lost weight: it’s exactly after weight loss that this laxness effect gets reinforced, since the supporting (fatty) tissue has melted away.

That’s why a thigh lift is often indicated following important weight loss, for sports alone will not be sufficient to achieve a complete tightening of the skin.

Interesting information about the thigh lift

Flaccid skin – either just along the upper part of the inner thigh or even down to the knee – may be smoothened and tightened by means of a thigh lift. If however there are still depots of fatty tissue and the skin is still elastic, one might also consider a liposuction.

Before attempting a thigh lift, you should already have reached your ideal weight, or at least nearly so; this procedure is not appropriate for obese patients. In case of local fat depots – often at the outer thigh, the so-called “jodhpurs” – liposuction and thigh lift may well be combined. If the skin around the behind is lax, one might also consider combining it with a gluteal lift.

We’d like to discuss any potential risks as well as the thigh lift treatment procedure in your individual case, explaining all details and answering your questions, in a personal consulting session. Please contact us for further information.
