Get the Contoured Look with a Thigh Lift
A thigh lift is a procedure that reshapes the thighs by removing excess skin and fat that is present after a period of major weight loss. The procedure works to smoothen the skin, and create a rejuvenated look in the legs. Sometimes, diet and exercise may not be able to take care of the excess skin and fat that is present after a period of weight loss, so surgery may be required to firm up the legs. Many patients combine a thigh lift with liposuction for maximum body contouring.
