Thigh and buttock lift is a surgical procedure to lift and tighten the loose skin and to improve the contour of the thigh and buttock area.
This procedure involves surgically removing a section of excess skin and fat from the area around the hip. It is ideal for the patients who are in good shape but have excess skin and fat in the thigh area.
The following can opt for Thigh and Buttock Lift Procedure:
If you have lost skin elasticity of the thigh, hip, or buttock areas.
If you have saggy skin areas.
If you have thighs that would look better if lax skin is reflected.
The thigh and butt becomes tighter and more attractive.
You will have improved contours.
You will have decreased irregularities in skin surface.
The procedure is performed under general anaesthesia on an outpatient basis.
Wide variations in design of the incision to meet the desires are possible.
Inner thigh lifting includes shorter incisions extending from the anterior part of the thigh crease around to the buttock crease.
The lateral or anterior thigh lifts can be performed as separate procedure.
The lifting of entire thigh and buttock requires much longer incisions that starts in the buttock crease and extend around the groin, come up over the side of the abdomen, and reach over the flank and across the back.
The buttock can be lifted with upper or lower scars.
