What does a thigh lift accomplish?

Most men and women who visit with Dr. Frank Ferraro are considering a thigh lift for the treatment of excess skin that typically occurs with significant weight loss. This excess skin will often sag and be an embarrassing side effect of massive changes in weight.

During the procedure, the plastic surgeon will remove excess skin to tighten and firm the thigh area, ensuring a more pleasing contour while eliminating problems resulting from sagging skin.
