Losing large amounts of weight is a major achievement, but many times people are left with the unanticipated side effect of excess skin. The excess skin may droop or sag all over the arms, thighs and stomach. For this, a body lift may be an ideal solution. Body lifts are generally a combination of an arm lift, tummy tuck and thigh lift designed to enhance the contour of your body to a preferred shape.
Sitting down with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Lisa Taylor will enable you to decide what combination of lifts is right for you. Depending on the extensiveness of drooping skin and the amount to be removed, the body lift can be modified to fit your particular needs. Specifically in terms of a thigh lift, there are a few technical options in terms of incision size and location. If you do not need extensive tissue removal, a minimal incision might be preferable.
