With summer around the corner, it’s only natural to be thinking about your summer body. If bulging fat and unsightly loose skin are making you second guess wearing shorts or a bikini bottom, thigh lift can help. Patients interested in thigh lift often ask Dr. Rob Kessler if the procedure can get rid of cellulite, or dimpled-looking skin on areas such as the thighs. In this blog post, Dr. Kessler discusses the answer in detail.
About Thigh Lift
Dr. Kessler performs inner thigh lift to reshape the inner thigh and leg. The procedure involves removing excess skin and tightening the remaining skin on the inner thigh. Following the procedure, the thighs are smoother and shapelier. For patients looking to improve the appearance of cellulite on the thighs, Dr. Kessler can combine inner thigh lift with lower body lift. A lower body lift procedure can remove excess fat and skin tissue from the abdomen, lower back, hips, thighs and buttocks. During the procedure, excess skin is removed and the remaining skin is pulled and then closed with sutures. Following a lower body lift, the thighs are smoother, cellulite is less apparent and patients can enjoy a more toned and proportionate appearance.
Maintaining Your Slimmer, Smoother Thighs
After undergoing inner thigh lift/lower body lift, it is imperative to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Losing or gaining a massive amount of weight can alter your body contouring results and worsen the appearance of cellulite. Bad lifestyle habits such as smoking and overexposure to the sun can damage the skin on the thighs, causing wrinkles to form and skin to become loose. Following your surgery, Dr. Kessler can make more recommendations for maintaining your results.
