Thigh Reduction in Manchester, Chester, Preston

Thigh Reduction

Thigh Reduction surgery is also known as "Thighplasty". It is a surgical procedure that aims to smooth and reshape the upper thighs by removing loose skin or fat. Thigh lift surgery or thigh reduction is a way to achieve the firmer and attractive upper legs that you always dreamed about. It is growing in popularity especially among those who have lost substantial amounts of weight and have loose skin on their thighs or they find unattractive.

The upper legs especially the thighs are a problem area for both men and women. As we age it becomes very difficult to get rid of the fat on thighs, as the fat becomes resistant to diet and exercise, even if you exercise too much. The problem with the fat on thighs is that it make you look fatter, older and weaker at the same time. Even if you lose the weight, the excess skin remains there and it can make you very self-conscious about your appearance.
