If you have experienced significant weight loss, Dr. Rachel Walker and her team at Plastic Surgery Center of Dallas in Dallas, TX congratulate you on your hard work! However, many men and women who have lost a lot of weight may not feel ready to stroll out onto the beach in revealing clothing. This is because patients who have been heavier and have lost a significant amount of fat off the body may be dealing with stretched, sagging, excess skin all throughout the body. One area that is often a common complaint is the thigh, where excess skin may hang and cause patients to feel extremely self-conscious when wearing shorts or skirts. With the help of a plastic surgeon, patients can find out more about solutions such as the thigh lift procedure.
What is a thigh lift?
The thigh lift procedure, officially known as a thighplasty, is a surgery during which the doctor will remove excess skin and help tighten the muscles and underlying tissues for firmer thighs. At the same time, patients can also remove any remaining fat in the area they were unable to lose with diet and exercise alone to improve the body contours as well. Dr. Rachel Walker finds that patients are often excited about removing this extra skin and showing off their results with confidence!
What about cellulite?
Patients who have cellulite may also see an improvement in their cellulite with a thigh lift. This is because of the removal of excess fat deposits while tightening up the skin that can smooth these imperfections away. This is just another reason why patients love plastic surgery!
