If you have thighs that have a lot of extra fat or skin on them, it is not very likely that you feel happy wearing shorts or short skirts. When summer comes around and everyone is wearing their bathing suit, you may put your bathing suit on, but you quickly cover up your thighs with some long shorts over your bathing suit. Are you tired of dealing with this issue? If so, you can do something about it with a thigh lift.
There are two main reasons why a person may have a lot of extra skin on their thighs. The first reason is because the person is simply getting older. As a person ages, the condition of their skin changes. So instead of having firm, tight skin, a person’s skin becomes loose. This can lead to a person having baggy skin on their thighs.
Another reason why a person may have excess skin on their thighs is because they at one time were quite heavy and then they lost a lot of weight. And while a person in this situation does feel very happy about the fact that they no longer have as much fat on their thighs or body, they do not like the way the hanging skin makes them look. A thigh lift may be appropriate for a person in this situation.
Since each individual has different circumstances and different needs, it is impossible to tell you exactly how the procedure will be done on you and the kind of results that you can expect to get without a consultation. However, there are a couple of things that are true of all thigh lift surgeries. First, your medical situation is going to be closely examined before the procedure is performed. We want to make sure that you are healthy enough for the procedure. Second, we are going to listen very closely to the cosmetic goals that you have. We want to know how you would like your legs to look after the procedure has been done.
We no longer have to live with a feature of our appearance that we do not like. You no longer have to cover up your thighs when the summer months roll around. A thigh lift can help you to get rid of excess skin and fat on your legs in order to help you have legs that you feel proud of. Everything can be discussed during your initial consultation with us at the office of J. Anthony Stephens, MD in Baton Rouge. Contact us today to schedule an appointment and get started!
