The thighs can be a source of major concern for many patients. With that in mind, let's consider some common and effective aesthetic treatments for the thighs and how they can help you.
Liposuction of the Thighs
If you have some unwanted fat on the thighs, sometimes all the lunges and squats in the world wont be enough to get rid of it. That's the unfortunate nature of body fat for many people. Thankfully, liposuction is available. Liposuction targets specific pockets of fat throughout your body, extracting it safely so you can have a slimmer, trimmer, and more athletic appearance.
Liposuction for the thighs is a good options for many women given how fat is often distributed throughout the female body.
Thigh Lift Surgery
With age or massive weight loss, it's not uncommon for skin to droop or sag in some fashion. When the skin or the thighs droops or sags, this can be a major source of self-consciousness. This is where a thigh lift might be the most ideal option. The thigh lift surgery will help tighten the skin of the thigh area so the patient experiences no drooping, sagging, or loose skin.
The thigh lift surgery can be performed in a number of different ways to target the inner thighs, the upper thigh and hip area, or the lower and middle portion of the thighs.
Skin Resurfacing for the Thighs
Sometimes the issue a patient has isn't unwanted fat or loose skin. Issues with sun damage, dry skin, or just generally poor skin appearance can lead a patient feeling self-conscious. This is where skin resurfacing for the thighs may be ideal. Using lasers, chemicals, or other non-surgical methods, a cosmetic dermatologist or skin care specialist can improve the glow of the skin of the thighs, making it look more supple and youthful.
Laser Hair Removal
Unwanted body hair can be a major source of self-consciousness for many people. This is especially true during warmer months, or when visiting tropical places for vacation. When hair around the thighs is an issue, laser hair removal may be an ideal option to consider. The laser will target the follicle itself, making the hair go away and causing any hair that grows back to be thinner and lighter.
Laser Tattoo Removal
Tattoos can be a great mode of self-expression, but sometimes your feelings about a given tattoo and where it is can change with time. If you happen to have any tattoos on your thighs that you're now having second thoughts about, it may be worthwhile to consider laser tattoo removal. Modern laser removal techniques help break up the ink in the skin so it's safely absorbed into the body. Several sessions may be necessary, but a laser tattoo removal procedure can leave your skin looking pristine and ink-free.
