At Hill Country Plastic Surgery, we perform thigh lifts in San Antonio, which is the ultimate solution to excess tissue on the thighs.
How is a thigh lift performed?
There are multiple techniques for thigh lifts. The type of thigh lift you need is determined by the amount and location of the excess skin, and the incisions used for the procedure depend on what areas you would like to be addressed.
- The most common area treated is the area of the thigh between the legs, also known as the medial thigh. For a thigh lift, the most common incision is in the groin, wrapping towards the back and extending down the inside of the leg.
- If you have excess skin on the outside of the thigh (lateral thigh), the incision along the groin may be extended around the hip.
- Patients with a small amount of excess skin near the groin may be a candidate for a medial thigh lift where the incision is only along the groin crease.
- Sometimes the lateral thigh lift is combined with a buttock lift. A thigh lift in San Antonio, at Hill Country, can be combined with other procedures.
