A thigh lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to tighten the skin of the thighs to reduce sagging in the inner and/or outer thighs. This surgical procedure is performed to reshape the thighs by reducing excess skin. In most cases it is performed in conjunction with liposuction to reduce excess fat, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body. If the skin has good elasticity however, liposuction of the thighs alone can achieve great results. A thigh lift surgery does leave a scar but for those with poor skin elasticity and too much excess skin it can drastically achieve a more toned and proportionate appearance of your legs.
