Thigh Lift Richmond
As with other regions of the body, loose and sagging soft tissues can affect the appearance of the lower body as well. These areas may be bothersome in spite of appropriate diet and exercise, which often cannot get rid of the extra loose skin or tighten it enough. A thigh lift involves the removal of this excess skin and fatty tissue either from the inside of the thigh (medial thigh lift) or the outside of the thigh (lateral thigh lift). Depending on the dimensions of your body, Dr. Hubert tailors the placement of the incisions to help you achieve your goals. Occasionally liposuction is required in conjunction with a thigh lift to achieve your best results. The procedure often can be done as an outpatient, or it might also be combined with other procedures, such as a tummy tuck. Inner (medial) thigh lifts tend to be more common than outer (lateral) thigh lifts, since this area tends to be more stubborn to diet and exercise, and the scars can be hidden a little more easily. Good candidates for thigh lift are bothered by the excess soft tissue along the inner or outer thighs, are healthy, and do not have conditions which impair the body’s ability to heal normally.
