Thigh Lift vs Thigh Liposuction: Which Option Is Right for You?

Thigh lift; thigh liposuction

Achieving a body you feel confident and comfortable in has never been easier. Not only are there procedures available for almost every aesthetic goal you can imagine, but there are also various options to attain the precise look you’re going for.

For example, patients looking to address the thighs, including loose skin and excess fat, can choose between a thigh liposuction or a thigh lift. Discover which of these options are best for achieving your aesthetic goals.

Thigh Lift Surgery

Thigh lift surgery, also known as thighplasty, is a procedure that targets loose skin. Dr. Trussler offers a couple of different options for thighplasty, including:

  • Inner thigh lift: This type targets the upper and inner portions of the thigh.
  • Outer thigh lift: The skin in the front and outer portion of the thigh is lifted.

Thigh lift procedures are ideal for those who are looking to contour and target the overall appearance of their thighs. This may include wrinkles and loose or excess skin, often caused by weight loss.

Thigh Liposuction

You may already be familiar with liposuction, which reduces and removes fat. A thigh liposuction is the same process, but the excess fat is removed only from the thighs.

Thigh liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. It is an option for patients who have been consistently living a healthy, active lifestyle and are struggling with stubborn fat deposits in their thighs.

Which Option Is Right For You?

If you are looking to resolve loose or excess skin and are concerned with the outward appearance of your thighs, a thigh lift may be the best option for you. You may opt for either an inner and outer thigh lift or combine them to achieve a balanced look.

However, if your goal is to reduce fat deposits in the thighs, then thigh liposuction is the solution for you.

In some cases, patients may opt for both procedures.
