In general, a thigh lift surgery is more common in women than it is in men. The reasons for this are that in women the thigh region is a common place for the collection of fat cells over many years. As a matter of fact, when surveyed, many women insisted that out of all the things they could change on their body, the thighs would be one of the first. The thighs in particular have a habit of harboring sagging and loose skin as well as the most dreaded thing for women, cellulite.
Many women are bothered by their thighs and it has even been known to prevent them from wearing shorts or even a bathing suit. The thighs rub together every time you walk and are particularly susceptible to sores for just this very reason. Many women will go out of their way doing exercise or anything they can in order to loose the excess fat cells located in their thighs. It is for these and many more reasons that thigh lifts are so popular and will continue to increase in their popularity. A thigh lift in general can help all of these types of conditions and more.
A thigh lift cost varies and can range anywhere from $2,000 all the way up to $9,000. The variation in the approximated cost of course has to do with how much fat you have in your thighs and want to have removed. The obvious is that the less fat you may have also means the lower the costs. These costs may also vary depending on your location and the competition between different plastic surgeons in you area.
A thigh lift not only can help you loose the hard to drop weight from the inner thigh region, but it can take care of the sagging skin and cellulite that has given you so many issues over the years. In return, you will be able to wear bathing suits and short again as well as receiving an improved self esteem from the procedural outcome.
Remember that when deciding to have a thigh lift, you must have realistic expectations from it. A thigh lift is not a cure all for your weight problems and much like a liposuction it carries with it many associated risks.
