Most people think of breast augmentation, a tummy tuck, or facelift when they hear the words plastic surgery. But there are many other helpful procedures that your Manhattan plastic surgeon, Dr. Aviva Preminger, offers. The thighs are an area of concern for a lot of people. If you’ve ever experienced significant weight gain or loss, you might have excess fat and skin around the inner or outer thighs. Find out on today’s blog five good reasons to get a thigh lift so you can feel comfortable and confident in your own skin.
No more chaffing
Excess skin and fat in the inner thigh region can be a real pain – literally! It can make walking uncomfortable, let alone jogging or doing anything more rigorous. Chaffing is a common complaint from individuals with excess fat and skin on their thighs. The reality is that these individuals often avoid exercising because it can be incredibly painful due to chaffing. Unfortunately, avoiding exercising only makes matters worse as more fat is likely to accumulate in this area, as well as lead to a loss of muscle mass. A thigh lift eliminates chaffing and allows you to move more freely whether you’re walking into the office for work or jogging through the park for exercise.
Less risk of skin infections
The constant chaffing and skin folds that often develop due to excess skin and fat may lead to skin infections. These infections could be bacterial or fungal that develops in the skin creases and folds. Not only are these conditions painful, but they also are challenging to treat, considering that area is difficult to keep clean and rubs together during any leg movement. If you deal with recurring skin infections on your thighs, it may be time for a thigh lift so that you can eliminate this health risk and feel comfortable no matter what activity you’re doing.
Wear what you want
Do you avoid wearing shorts or clothing that shows too much leg because you’re worried about how your thighs look? A thigh lift creates slimmer, more attractive thighs, so you can wear whatever you’d like. It makes summer more enjoyable because you can join friends and family poolside or at the beach without having to cover the bottom half of your body. Plus, stay cool this summer by sporting shorts or sundresses without fear of how your legs look.
Get thighs that look firmer and younger
Excess skin and fat around the thighs usually look flabby and can make you look older than you really are. A thigh lift aims to create firmer, younger-looking legs so that you can feel confident and not have to worry about what others think when they see your legs. Thigh contouring in Manhattan is one of the best ways to achieve more youthful-looking legs and restore your body confidence.
Reduce stretch marks
Significant weight gain or loss creates stretch marks, which can be evident in the thigh region. If you have stretch marks on your thighs, a thigh lift may reduce the appearance of these marks. While stretch marks aren’t curable, some of them may be removed along with excess skin in this area. Keep in mind that there is no surgery available that does not result in at least a little scaring. However, Dr. Preminger uses special techniques to hide the scars in inconspicuous areas and provides post-op care instructions that help reduce the appearance of possible scars.
