Different Types of Thigh Lift Surgery You May Undergo

Thigh lift surgery, also known as thighplasty, is a cosmetic procedure designed to reshape and contour the thighs by removing excess skin and fat. Whether due to aging, weight loss, or genetics, sagging skin and stubborn fat deposits in the thighs can be a source of frustration for many individuals.

Fortunately, thigh lift surgery offers various techniques to address these concerns and achieve smoother, firmer, and more toned thighs. In this article, we’ll explore the different types of thigh lift surgery available to patients seeking to enhance their thigh appearance.

Medial Thigh Lift

A medial thigh lift targets the inner thighs, addressing excess skin and fat in this area. During the procedure, an incision is made along the inner thigh, allowing the plastic surgeon to remove excess skin and fat and tighten the remaining tissue. This technique is ideal for individuals with significant sagging in the inner thigh area, resulting in improved contour and definition.

Outer Thigh Lift

An outer thigh lift focuses on the outer thighs and hips, addressing sagging skin and fat deposits in this region. This procedure involves making an incision along the outer thigh and hip area, allowing the plastic surgeon to remove excess tissue and tighten the skin. Outer thigh lift surgery can enhance the overall shape and proportion of the thighs and hips, creating a more balanced and sculpted appearance.

Bilateral Thigh Lift

A bilateral thigh lift, also known as a horizontal thigh lift, targets both the inner and outer thighs simultaneously. This comprehensive approach allows the plastic surgeon to address excess skin and fat in multiple areas of the thighs, resulting in a more comprehensive contouring and rejuvenation. Bilateral thigh lift surgery is ideal for individuals seeking overall improvement in the appearance and symmetry of their thighs.

Vertical Thigh Lift

A vertical thigh lift, also known as a vertical thighplasty, is a more extensive procedure that addresses excess skin and fat along the entire length of the thigh. Unlike traditional thigh lift techniques, which focus on specific areas of the thigh, a vertical thigh lift involves making incisions along the inner thigh and extending down to the knee or calf. This technique is suitable for individuals with significant laxity and excess skin throughout the thigh area.
