Cosmetic Treatments for the Thighs
By Sheryl Pilcher on July 07, 2015
The team here at Accent Plastic Surgery has helped countless patients in and around the greater San Antonio achieve their aesthetic goals. Many times this involves body contouring and sculpting to remove wrinkles and tighten loose skin. While the abdominal area is a common target for body sculpting procedures, another common area for body contouring is the thighs. Let's take a moment to consider the various kind of treatments that can enhance the thighs.
Liposuction of the Thighs
Sometimes patients can accumulate some problematic pockets of fat in the thigh and lower body area in general. In order to take care of these pockets of fat, there's always liposuction for the thighs. This procedure uses special suction in order to sculpt slimmer and trimmer thighs free from that unwanted fat.
Ideal Candidates for Liposuction
The best candidates for liposuction of the thighs are people who have pockets of fat accumulated on their thighs and around their lower buttocks. They should be in good overall health and experience no health problems that would make a procedure such as liposuction a major issue.
Keep in mind that liposuction is for cosmetic fat removal rather than weight loss, and any patients seeking a medical remedy for obesity should consider bariatric surgery or natural weight loss options.
Thigh Lift Surgery
Also known as thighplasty, thigh lift surgery is performed in order to reduce the sagging or drooping of the skin of the thighs. During the procedure, incisions are made around the groin and hip area. Through these incisions, excess fat is removed and excess skin excised and pulled tight. By doing this, patients will have trimmer, slimmer, and more toned thighs.
Ideal Candidates for Thigh Lift Surgery
The best candidates for thigh lift surgery are people who have sagging or drooping skin of the thighs that occur as a result of major weight loss or the natural aging process. They should be in good health otherwise and well enough to undergo surgery without experiencing an adverse health condition. Thigh lift surgery is a common part of other body sculpting procedures, such as mommy makeover surgery and total body lift surgery.
Skin Care and Resurfacing of the Thighs
Sometimes the issue with a patient's thighs has nothing to do with sagging and drooping skin but rather the general quality of the skin of the thighs. In such cases, a great option to consider is skin resurfacing. This adds moisture and suppleness to the treated skin, helping patients have a more refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.
Ideal Candidates for Skin Care and Resurfacing
The best candidates for skin care and resurfacing of the thighs are people who have issues with dryness or wrinkles of the thigh skin. They should be in good general health and know all of the benefits and side effects of the skin care treatment that they will undergo.
