Having lean, long legs is a common desire among women and while there is nothing that can be done to lengthen the legs (short of wearing high heels) the leanness of the legs is something that can be accomplished. Many women achieve the leaner legs they desire through exercise and diet. For those who’ve lost a significant amount of weight, however, the lean may be achieved, but is hidden by excess, loose, hanging skin that was unable to adjust to the weight loss due to loss of elasticity. For other women, the lean may be more difficult to impossible to achieve through diet and exercise alone due to genetic pre-disposition. For either of these cases, a Long Island Thighplasty may be the best option for creating the leaner legs desired.
Thighplasty, or Thigh Lift surgery, is a procedure in which excess skin is removed from the upper portion of the legs. In cases in which excess fat also needs to be removed, Liposuction may be done in conjunction with the Thigh Lift procedure. It is common for other body contouring procedures to be performed with a Thigh Lift, as well, such as a Buttock Lift or Tummy Tuck.
