There seem to be a plethora of thigh lift procedures and techniques on the Internet. Is there one that's more popular, and how is it better than the rest of them?

Thigh lift procedures have different variations, such as an inner thigh lift and a medial thigh lift. These are two very popular options. While the two procedures are technically different, their results will look quite similar since the standard procedure involves removing some leg and/or thigh excess fat that the patient has. Most often, the skin the patient wants to remove is sagging skin from a heavy weight loss, or maybe they desire a thigh gap like the girls in the magazines. Whatever your reasoning, the inner thigh lift seems to be a pretty straightforward procedure and there are plenty of resources and reviews online from both women and doctors who have either experienced the surgery or performed it themselves. I know how overwhelming seeing so many options can be to a woman's mind. I hope the above suggestions make it a bit easier for you to narrow it down.

I heard that a thigh lift would correct the loose skin around my thighs. What I did not know is that there is more than one type. Some of the thigh lifts are more invasive than others. While I knew I would have to undergo a surgical intervention, I wanted to do something that would not involve massive incisions and a prolonged recovery time. Inner, outer, and vertical are the three types of thigh lift procedures.

I had an inner thigh lift because I had excess skin around the upper portion of my thighs. The inner thigh lift involved placing a small incision that went from the crease of my thigh to my buttocks. It was an effective surgical procedure that left me with a hardly noticeable scar. My recovery time only took a couple of weeks. A vertical thigh lift would involve a larger incision, the removal of more skin, and a longer recovery period. Plastic surgery really made me more confident with my legs and I am so happy I went through with thigh lift surgery even though I was really nervous. Good luck to you!
