At Rizk Plastic Surgery in Sydney thigh lift surgery is a cosmetic operation that tightens the lax skin from the inner thigh region helping people attain a normal thigh size and leaving a smoother, tighter outline.
A thigh lift may also be performed in combination with another type of surgery, for instance in combination with an arm lift. Rapid or drastic weight loss can leave an individual with loose, sagging skin folds around the thigh area which had been previously stretched by the excess fat. As the fat disappears, the lack of elasticity in the remaining skin leaves what we know and dread as cellulite. Cellulite is a common problem affecting men and women alike and may have an enormous effect on self-confidence. Cellulite also becomes more prevalent as we age, where skin elasticity, stress and gravity each play a part in affecting the contour of our body.
Thigh lift surgery can markedly improve the appearance of your legs. The combined effects of ageing, gravity, fluctuations in weight, and a loss of skin elasticity all contribute to loss of tone in the thighs as we age. If you are considering a thigh lift Sydney plastic surgeon Dr Joseph Rizk can provide his professional advice on whether this procedure is right for you. Dr Rizk offers his clients specialised surgical treatments to mould and shape that image you have already worked so hard to achieve.
