Excess skin on the thighs can be a common problem for those who have experienced dramatic weight loss. The condition can lead to chafing and discomfort, which can in turn severely limit what wardrobe choices you can make, and what physical activities you can comfortably participate in.
Ready to put the discomfort and embarrassment to an end? A thigh lift in Long Island may be a good option to bring relief and to help you achieve a more aesthetically pleasing body shape.
This procedure reshapes the thighs by eliminating excess skin left behind after weight loss, as well as the underlying fat that weight loss and exercise did not eliminate. Like most skin removal surgery, results can be almost immediate and will continue to improve over time. Our thigh lift in NYC is often combined with other procedures such as liposuction, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), upper body lift, and arm lift – particularly in cases where there has been a large amount of weight loss. Procedure combination can help minimize both surgery and recovery time.
Age can also be a big factor. Over time, the upper legs can become increasingly susceptible to retained fat as well as cellulite. Leg shape and tone are often associated with a degree of fitness, but weight loss often results in excess skin, making people appear heavier, older, and less fit.
Some people find it impossible to tone their upper legs with traditional methods such as exercise. In many cases, a thigh lift can be the best step towards achieving firmer and more attractive legs.
