Also referred to as thighplasty
As we age, the combined effects of gravity, surgeries, fluctuations in weight, and loss of skin elasticity contribute to loss of tone in the thighs. Saggy or flabby thighs, for any reason, can negatively affect the way you feel about yourself. Many women can attest to avoiding certain social situations and recreational activities, sometimes missing out on opportunities in life, simply because they feel that they cannot change that part of themselves. And, if diet with exercise doesn’t help, it’s easy to give up. You may tell yourself ‘this is the way that it is,’ thinking there are no other options.
What is Thighplasty?
A thigh lift, or thighplasty, addresses inner or outer thighs that can sometimes hang excessively and with a great deal of loose skin. In cases such as bariatric surgery or accelerated aging, liposuction alone will increase loose skin making the thighs look worse. In these cases, a thigh lift is a better option. It combines liposuction (when needed), removal of excess skin, and tightening of loose skin.
Naturally, reshaping requests of the labia vary by one’s specific anatomy and particular needs. Most commonly, however, the labia minora are simply trimmed to a smaller size. This procedure is a relatively quick one, with minimal discomfort. While there is a small chance that some sensation may be lost, most of the sexual sensation is located in the clitoral and vaginal areas and will not actually be affected by the surgery.
