Many women may be hesitant to wear their bathing suit and flash their body for the whole world to see. For some women, it can be stressful and uncomfortable due to excess skin that may appear in the thigh area. While wearing a fashionable wrap around the bathing suit can help disguise this, there are other ways to address this problem area. It may be time for you to book an appointment with Dr. Jessica Belz in San Antonio, TX.
What is a thigh lift?
Dr. Jessica Belz describes the thigh lift as a body sculpting procedure that is utilized for reshaping the thighs to improve shape and overall appearance. This surgical procedure focuses on both the inner and outer thighs, and can address common issues related to aging, weight loss, and even weight fluctuations caused by pregnancy.
What are the benefits of a thigh lift surgical procedure?
Thigh lifts have several advantages for patients to consider:
- Excess skin removal – women who have lost a significant amount of weight over the years may experience excess skin that develops around the thigh area. This excess skin may also be due to aging, as the skin becomes looser over time from natural collagen loss.
- Fat removal – while a thigh lift isn’t focused on fat reduction, liposuction can still be used to remove excess fat deposits in the leg area to smoother and contour the thighs.
- Muscle tightening – muscle definition can be naturally lost over time. During a thigh lift these muscles can be addressed with tightening to improve the contour of the thigh.
- Stretch mark reduction – weight fluctuations can also cause the formation of stretch marks. These stretch marks are minimized during surgery to reduce their appearance in the area.
