Anterior Thigh Liposuction or Lift: Which To Opt For

Elite Body Sculpture proudly provides patients with advanced body contouring and sculpting processes that will leave patients feeling rejuvenated and happy with their figures.

An area that is often treated within our offices is the thighs. They're especially problematic for patients who can't wear certain clothes or suffer from irritation caused by their thighs chafing together.

Traditionally, there are two surgeries designed to address various aesthetic issues involving the thighs: the thigh lift and liposuction.

This article has been curated to inform you about the differences between thigh liposuction and lifts, so you can understand their differences where the procedures by Elite Body Sculpture come into play.


Thigh Lift Surgery

Also known as a thighplasty, a thigh lift refers to the procedure designed to treat loose skin surrounding the thigh.

Incisions are carefully made around the groin and inner thigh to later tighten and resolve any sagging that affects the patient's comfort.

Two types of lifts can be performed:

  1. Outer or lateral thigh lift: where the front and outer portion of the thighs are treated.
  2. Inner or medial thigh lift: where the inner and upper portion of the thighs are treated. 

Ideal Candidates For Thigh Lifts

The optimal candidates for a thigh lift are those who want to change their thighs' contour and aesthetic. Problems with wrinkling, loose and excessive skin are the main aspects that they'd like to treat.

As with any surgery, the patient should be in overall good health.

Thigh Liposuction

Thigh liposuction is a traditional fat removal procedure. It solely focuses on fat removal. Therefore patients concerned with loose skin should couple it with a thighplasty.

Ideal Candidates For Thigh Lipo

The optimal candidates for thigh liposuction are those with pockets of fat surrounding the thigh area and should also be in good overall health.

Patients should be close to their ideal weight if considering liposuction, given that the invasive characteristics of this surgery require that you be in shape for a beneficial recovery.

Elite Body Sculpture Is More Ideal For Your Thigh Contouring Needs

Whether your issue is excess fat or loose skin, Front Thigh AirSculpt® is the optimal decision you can make to obtain the best results for your anterior thighs.

The minimally invasive procedure is designed to simultaneously remove fat and help tighten loose skin, thanks to the advanced technology implemented and our patented technique.

AirSculpt's exclusive fat removal technique delivers more precise changes than traditional liposuction while leaving the skin tighter to its new figure. That said, this is primarily a fat removal treatment, so if significant loose skin in need of removal exists, a lift may still be preferred.
