As in the case of the upper arms, the thighs are also an area of the body vulnerable to weight fluctuation and loss of skin elasticity. A thigh lift is commonly performed on people who have succeeded with massive weight loss to tighten up loose folds of skin on the upper legs. The procedure, however, can be performed on anyone who would like to have trimmer, more toned thighs and has tried without success to accomplish this through diet and exercise. During a thigh lift, the surgeon removes excess skin and tightens underlying tissue.
