Thigh Lift Surgery
Firm, shapely thighs can be difficult to achieve with some body types. Diet and exercise can only do so much in reshaping the thighs. Genetics, aging and other factors can impact the size, shape and skin on the upper legs. If you want to remove fat and tighten the skin on the upper legs, a thigh lift may be right for you. Dr. Munique Maia and our team at Maia Plastic Surgery offer thigh lift surgery at our facility in Tysons Corner, VA.
Many women carry excess fat in their thighs. Even though they may be at an appropriate body weight, they may have thicker thighs than they prefer. Plus, aging and weight gain can result in loose or sagging skin. Even if fat is lost, the thighs may droop or sag with the lost elasticity in the skin. A thigh lift is a combination of liposuction and lift surgery to reduce the size and increase the firmness of the thighs.
Are You a Candidate for Thighplasty?
Thighplasty can be a wonderful body contouring tool for those who are self-conscious of their thighs. However, it is not the right procedure for everyone. If you only want to remove targeted fat from the thighs, liposuction or other fat removal procedures may be appropriate. Ideal candidates for thigh lift surgery, or thighplasty, want to remove fat from their thighs but also have loose or saggy skin. Thighplasty can slim thicker thighs and create firmer, tighter skin that is more youthful and attractive.
Thighplasty is performed with incisions to perform liposuction and excise excess skin. Each procedure is tailored to the patient. Some patients need skin or fat removed from the inner thigh; others may need to focus on the outer thighs. Dr. Maia can discuss the best procedure to address specific problem areas while discreetly hiding incisions to obtain natural, beautiful results.
If you have loose skin and fat on your thighs that you want removed, a thigh lift surgery may be the solution. Contact us at Maia Plastic Surgery to schedule a thighplasty consultation with Dr. Maia at our clinic in the greater Washington, DC, metro area.
