Thigh lifting is a type of intervention applied to worn sagging, deformed, shapeless calves. Thanks to this operational method, the skin gets a tighter, aesthetic, and youthful rejuvenation. It allows your skin to have the elasticity it once had or never had. It is beneficial for old scars and deformities due to weight loss. Reshaping your upper legs is the most aimed result of this procedure, especially for cases where fitness and workout efforts become inadequate to perform a sufficient effect on the leg shaping process. When you are suffering from sagging skin and the lack of skin elasticity, you can also consider having liposuction in addition to tight lifting also. 

Types of Thighs Lifting

Thigh stretching operation focuses on the area of the upper leg and has three main focuses; Inner/Medial Thigh Lift, Vertical thigh lift, Spiral thigh lift.

To minimize drooping in the top region of the inner thigh, a small thigh lift is performed. Only a tiny area of the top third of the leg is worked on, rather than the full thigh. It’s for people who don’t have a lot of extra fat or skin, but merely wish to slim down the region. Generally, this mini thigh lift is preferred for those who  have a BMI of less than 30. A tiny incision is created in the groin region to accomplish this procedure. This will be utilized to do liposuction, followed by the removal of extra skin. The procedure gives you a smaller, and a smoother look with less bumps and imperfections. It is kind of polishing your appearance but worth it to have your confidence especially for summer!

  • Inner/Medial Thigh Lift

The inside part of the upper thigh skin is lifted in a medial thigh lift. Diet and exercise alone are insufficient for most people to lose weight from these areas. After losing weight, some patients choose an inner thigh lift to get rid of the extra skin. If you lose a huge amount of weight rapidly in a short time, the skin around your upper thigh may lose elasticity and gets a sagging look. It may also be a result of natural aging as well. In short, whatever the causes for the thigh lift are, the procedure can help to reduce the fat and skin around the upper thigh.

  • Vertical Thigh Lift

Patients with extra skin that extends all the way around the leg may benefit from a vertical thigh lift. While an inner thigh lift concentrates on the upper thigh, this type of thigh lift also addresses the middle and lower thigh. This operation covers a wider incision since it addresses a greater portion of the body. An ellipse-shaped piece of the skin is sliced and removed instead of a tiny incision. This sliced area is defined from the top of the inner thigh and goes down to the inside of the knee. Due to the form of the incision, this procedure is also known as a ‘crescent lift’. However, there will be more significant and obvious scars left behind in this scenario.

  • Outer/Lateral Thigh Lift

The skin and fat on the outside of the thigh are removed during an outer thigh lift. This might include belly fat and extra weight around the waist and buttocks. An incision is created around the waist during this sort of thigh lift. It’s comparable to a general lower body lift in this regard. Liposuction is a procedure that removes fat from the thighs and buttocks. The extra tissue is then pushed up to the hip bone and fastened. This sculpts the body and creates a smoother, tighter surface that is devoid of ripples and dimples. 

  • Spiral Thigh Lift

One of the newest approach and method for thigh lifting is spiral thigh lift. It covers all the portions of the body, not only the back, front and side, but also the upper and down thighs. As it covers all parts of thigh lifting it is also called 360 or total thigh lift. With the help of this procedure, a great amount of skin is stretched and more tissue is removed from the body. As a result, you will have a more fit posture and smoother body contour with a young  and fresh look.
