Thigh lift is a surgical procedure that is performed to eliminate loose and excessive, or hanging, skin surrounding your thighs and buttocks. As a result, skin is firmed up and its appearance and texture are improved. Excessive skin in the thigh and buttock area may be a product of prolonged weight loss. Thigh Lift is one way of removing dimpled appearance of the thigh that cellulite brings. This irregular dimpling of the skin that usually appears on the thighs, hips, and waists of women and men alike is due to loss of elasticity of skin and bulging of underlying superficial fat pockets.
