Medial Thigh Lift Surgery

How Can a Thigh Lift Help Me?

Even if you eat right and exercise, time still takes its toll. Over the years, it gets harder and harder to keep your body looking young and strong. One of the first areas you may see is the upper legs. Fortunately, you don’t have to settle for an appearance that’s less than what you want. A thigh lift surgery, or thighplasty, may improve the shape and look of your thighs.

What Are the Types of Thigh Lift Surgeries?

Various types of thigh lift surgeries are available. Some of those are an inner thigh lift, also known as a medial thigh lift, and a standard thigh lift.

A medial thigh lift is another name for an inner thigh lift surgery. This is a type of procedure that involves removing excess skin and/or fat to smooth and tone the skin. The incision is typically in the shape of a crescent, and a horizontal scar is left behind.

A standard thigh lift also involves the removal of excess skin and fat. The cause of this loose tissue is usually weight loss. Where the scar from a medial thigh lift is horizontal, the scar from a standard thigh lift is both horizontal and vertical.

Both types of thigh lift surgery yield similar benefits. Here are some of the results you may see.

  • Younger looking, firmer legs
  • Better proportions between the thighs and the lower body
  • Less sagging in the inner and outer thighs
  • Improved confidence

Who Is a Good Candidate for a Thigh Lift Surgery?

If you have tried to get the look you want with diet and exercise, and you are still frustrated, a surgical thigh lift may be the answer. Here are a few things to remember.

  • Before you consider thigh lift surgery, your weight should be relatively stable. If you are in the midst of an aggressive weight loss plan, you should wait until you have reached your goal and maintained it for a period of time.
  • You should generally be healthy with no medical conditions that may delay healing or cause higher surgery risks.
  • Nonsmokers are better candidates for the surgery.
  • You should have a realistic picture in your mind as to what the surgery can do for you.
  • You will be better satisfied with your results long-term if you follow a healthy lifestyle, including a proper diet and exercise routine.

Medial thigh lift surgery is a procedure wherein the thighs are reshaped by reducing excess skin and/or fat for smoother skin and more firm, youthful looking body contours. Many patients achieve the following benefits after the medial thigh lift surgery is performed:

  • More firm, youthful looking body contours:
    As excess skin is removed, sagging in the inner or outer thigh is minimized for firmer, youthful looking body contours.
  • Higher self-esteem and confidence:
    Thighs will be toned, firmed, and ready to show off shortly after the surgery is performed – allowing patients to feel more confident with higher self-esteem!

Dr. Michael J. Streitmann will consult with you to discuss your expectations and desired outcome, as well as any potential risks or concerns, in order to ensure the success of the surgery. Once the surgery is performed, the results are almost immediate – giving you smoother, more toned thighs while improving skin quality in appearance and feel.
