What is a Thigh Lift?
As your body ages, it gradually stops producing collagen and elastin, two proteins that are necessary for good skin health. When this occurs, your skin starts to lack elasticity, which leads to loose, sagging skin that hangs off the body. In addition, major fluctuations in weight or certain hereditary factors can compound the problem. This process can affect the thighs, leading to a loss of self-confidence. Once your skin has lost its elastic quality, it cannot be restored, no matter how faithfully you may follow a healthy diet and exercise routine. Although drooping skin can develop almost anywhere on the body, for many, the thigh area can be of particular aesthetic concern. A thigh lift can help restore your thighs to a more youthful appearance.
