The thigh lift is a surgical procedure that involves removing excess skin and fat (adipose tissue) from the thighs to improve the contour of your thighs and silhouette.

 

Many factors can affect the quality of our skin, such as:

 

  •       one or more pregnancies
  •       a significant change in weight (loss or gain)
  •       one or more accidents
  •       disease
  •       sun exposure

 

Due to these factors and a loss of skin elasticity, the thigh skin becomes droopy and distorted.
These aesthetic imperfections are characterized by excess of fat (adipose tissue) of the upper and inner aspect of the thighs, visible stretch marks on your thighs and/or significant weight loss.
The thigh lift may give you the shape they were before these changes, as well as make them firmer.
After having traced the preoperative skin markings, Dr. Cordoba will proceed by making the skin incisions along these lines. Dr. Cordoba will then remove and lift the excess skin. The last step of thigh lift is to adjust and suture the skin.
The thigh lift leaves permanent scars in the inner thigh area.

 

The best(s) candidate(s) for a thigh lift are the individuals who are:

 

  •       healthy
  •       have realistic expectations about what this surgery can do
  •       emotionally well balanced
  •       with excess skin on the thighs

 

A thigh lift can be performed as a single procedure or in combination with other cosmetic surgeries such as facial surgery, breast augmentation or liposuction of the surrounding areas.

 

Alternative Treatments

Not undergoing a thigh lift surgery is an option.
