The thigh lift procedure can be used to remove excess sagging skin tissue from the inner thighs, giving the thighs a better shape. Why does the skin droop and affect the overall appearance of the thighs?

Excess skin may develop on the inner thighs following dramatic weight loss or during the course of the aging process.

After major weight loss, the skin can do one of two things: shrink down to fit the new size of the region or stay at its current size and droop.

The body’s rate of collagen protein production declines with aging, causing a drop in skin elasticity and tautness. Without enough elasticity, it cannot shrink down and instead stays oversized. The thigh lift trims the excess tissue away for tighter contours.
