Thigh Lift is a plastic surgery procedure that lifts and tightens sagging skin and removes excess fat in the inner upper thigh area. For some of us, excess skin and fat gathers in certain areas and no matter how hard we exercise and diet we can’t get a thinner thigh. The excessive skin and fat may rub together causing irritation and embarrassing discomfort. A thigh lift is a great way to help alleviate this discomfort.
Thigh Lift is also a procedure that Dr. Alfred Sofer preforms for patients after massive weight loss. After gastric bypass, lap band surgery or dieting for massive weight loss it may leave a persons with areas of loose hanging fat and skin that can case discomfort not only emotionally but physically. Pinching skin in clothes, and irritation from friction can cause rashes and soars on the skin. Ointments and creams may not be enough to alleviate this, and body contouring maybe your option.
