Without an actual exam it’s difficult to determine which of these procedures will be your best option, or if a combination of the two will be needed. Liposuction works to remove unwanted, excess fat and can change the contour of the thigh. If your skin elasticity is good, this alone can be a solution. If your skin elasticity is poor, this may worsen your condition and require additional procedures to gain good results.
A Thigh Lift gets rid of sagging and excess skin, but does not remove fat, and it will not change the shape of the thigh. Depending upon your unique situation, one or a combination of these procedures may be used to achieve your goals. Discuss your options during a consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. He or she will be better able to address your concerns once you go through a physical exam and help you decide on the best course of action.
