Thigh Lift

With a thigh lift, you can expect better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body. By reducing excess skin and fat, the procedure reshapes the upper leg, resulting in a leaner, smoother appearance. Often performed in combination with liposuction and other body lifts, the results of a thigh lift are visible almost immediately and are long-lasting when maintaining a relatively stable weight and general fitness.
