Having lean, long legs is a common desire among women, and while there is nothing that can be done to lengthen the legs,getting leaner legs can be easy with the help of a thigh lift. Some women can achieve the leaner legs they desire through exercise and diet. However, those who have lost a significant amount of weight will also experience loose, hanging thigh skin. This occurs because their skin is less elastic than it used to be and was unable to adjust to the weight loss. In these cases, a thigh lift from plastic surgeon Dr. Joshua Kreithen may be the best option for creating the leaner legs you desire.
Thigh lift surgery reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin, and in some cases fat, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body. During thigh lift surgery, excess skin is removed from the upper portion of the legs. In cases in which excess fat also needs to be removed, liposuction may be done in conjunction with the thigh lift procedure. It is common for other body-contouring procedures to be performed with a thigh lift, such as a tummy tuck.
Following thigh lift surgery, many patients experience an immediate improvement in their self-esteem and discover greater self-confidence. In addition, many also find greater access to different clothing styles and fashions and are less self-conscious at the gym, around the pool, or at the beach.
