If you are an active individual, your legs and thighs are among the most visible areas of your body, especially during warmer weather. You work hard trying to look your best and stay healthy. A well-balanced diet and exercise are effective at toning muscles and trimming away excess weight. Even though you eat right, exercise regularly, stay well hydrated and follow a skin care routine, some areas – particularly the hips, legs and thighs – can stubbornly resist weight loss and toning efforts.
Being uncomfortable with the appearance of your legs may cause you to refrain from certain activities and fashion styles like bathing suits and shorts. If you feel self-conscious about your appearance, leg and thigh lifts may provide the answer. Another aesthetic consideration is the lax, sagging redundant skin that persists after dramatic weight loss. Leg and thigh lifts are popular surgical procedures that can address these issues.
Benefits of Leg and Thigh Lifts
Leg and thigh lifts provide skin tightness and better symmetrical contouring after weight loss by reducing the amount of drooping excess skin as well as tightening the underlying tissue. This improves the contours and overall appearance of your legs, thighs, and buttocks once you have reached and are maintaining your new stable weight.
For issues like skin laxity, a leg and thigh lift may be the only effective corrective treatment. In some cases, liposuction may be performed at the same time to achieve the desired results by removing cellulite and sagging, fatty tissue. Leg and thigh lifts can help give you a trimmer, more youthful look by eliminating those last few stubborn pounds and tightening areas resistant to exercise. The incisions are placed in the natural folds of the body to minimize the appearance of any scarring. The procedure may also help restore confidence in your appearance by making you feel better about your legs and thighs.
