What Is Thighplasty?

What is thighplasty

It is no secret that the thigh plays an important role in a person’s appearance. Thigh lift is a cosmetic surgery that enhances the appearance of the thighs by removing excess skin and tissue in the area. This will make your skin and the shape of your thighs smoother and younger. In addition to relieving sagging skin due to severe weight loss or aging, it can also eliminate the symptoms of skin stretching caused by weight gain.

Thigh lift surgery can be performed in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures. The most common of these are tummy tuck or brazilian butt lift surgery. Simultaneous liposuction may be very effective in achieving a more beautiful appearance too.

Thighplasty Methods in Iran

There are several methods for thigh lift. Our doctors in Medpaltrip choose the best method according to your needs and characteristics. These methods are categorized based on the shape and size of the incisions they make on your skin.

Types of thigh lift methods in Iran include the following:

Internal or Medial Thighplasty
The most common method of thigh lift is usually chosen by the surgeon for people who have loose skin after severe weight loss or have resistant fat inside their thighs. In this method, an incision is made in the groin that extends to the crease of the buttocks in the back. Vertical incisions may also be made in the lower thigh as needed for greater access.

Mini Thigh Lift
If the sagging skin is only in the upper thigh, the surgeon may choose this method. The mini thigh lift is actually an internal thigh lift that only makes small incisions in the groin. The recovery period in this method is shorter.

Bilateral Thigh Lift
In this procedure, the surgeon makes an incision in the upper thigh at the junction of the abdomen and legs that extends toward the buttocks as needed. After removing the excess skin, the surgeon closes the remaining skin tightly, creating a smooth skin.

Vertical Thigh Lift
This method is usually used to remove large amounts of skin and extra tissue in the thigh.

Thigh Lift With Liposuction
In some cases, the elasticity of your skin may be reduced. In this method, liposuction removes excess fat from under your skin and prevents the skin from sagging after the operation.
