Candidates for Thigh Lift
When skin stretches beyond a certain limit, it loses its elasticity. Many patients choose a thigh lift after they have lost a significant amount of weight and find that their skin does not conform to their new, smaller body size. Your body also produces less collagen as you grow older, which can cause your thigh tissue to sag and make your legs appear heavier than they are. If you are bothered by excess, hanging skin on your thighs and pockets of fat that do not respond to diet or exercise, you may be a candidate for a thigh lift. To qualify for treatment, you should be at a healthy weight. You should not undergo this type of body contouring surgery if you are aiming for further weight loss. In addition, you should be in overall good health, and not be actively smoking . An autoimmune disease, blood disorder, or skin condition may affect your candidacy for treatment. Dr. Lowe will provide a comprehensive consultation to determine whether a thigh lift is right for you.
