Non-Surgical Thigh Lift
Non-Surgical Thigh Lift
As you age, parts of your body sag with the upper legs being one of the most notorious for sagging skin. Many people have found that the thigh region defies many dieting and exercise programs despite losing enormous amounts of weight in other body parts.
Some people feel their self-esteem and confidence dip if they can’t freely flaunt their thighs because of loose skin. If you want the skin on the thighs to become firmer and improve the look of the upper legs, a non-surgical thigh lift is a way to achieve your dreams.
Why do you need a thigh lift
Weight loss is a common cause of flappy skin on the thighs because of the number of fat cells in that part of the body. In the past, plastic surgeons relied on thigh lift surgery to make the place firmer and more aesthetic.
However, surgical thigh lifts are expensive, time-consuming, and painful. Also, you need to spend several weeks to recover fully while the risk of dangerous side effects is also high.
Thanks to advances in cosmetic surgery, you can now use non-surgical thigh augmentation procedures to tighten the skin on your thighs for a sexier and more confident look. A nonsurgical thigh lift is an excellent non-invasive procedure that helps to tighten the fold of loose skin, giving you firmer and more attractive upper legs.
Types of Non-Surgical Thigh Lift
There are different non-surgical thigh lift techniques, including ultrasound such as Ultherapy which uses radio frequency, infrared lasers, dermal fillers like the Sculptra body fillers and PDO thread thigh lift techniques.
Each technique has its merits and demerits but here we will only discuss the dermal body filler and PDO thread techniques.

Body Filler for Non-surgical Thigh Lift
Sculptra is long-lasting dermal filler widely used for non-surgical augmentation procedures such as thigh lifts, butt lifts, leg lifts, and more. This filler comprises poly-l-lactic acid, a substance that signals the synthesis of collagen in the body.
To use Sculptra for a non-surgical thigh lift, the plastic surgeon injects the dermal filler into select areas of the thigh. The result is a natural-looking thigh which is plumper and tighter. Sculptra stimulates the body to produce collagen and the results are instant but you will see optimal results a few weeks after the procedure.
Non-surgical thigh lifts using dermal fillers like Sculptra is safe, fast and the results can last for up to two years or more. Also, the procedure is simple, almost painless and there is a minimal risk of side effects.
Sculptra dermal fillers leave no scars and are free of surgery-related complications. For best results, you may need to go for maintenance treatments for additional injection.
Like all dermal fillers, the body gradually absorbs Sculptra. The rate at which your body absorbs the substance determines how long the results will last.
PDO threads also offer an effective non-surgical treatment for sagging skin on the thighs. This minimally invasive procedure uses polydioxanone threads or PDO.
For this procedure, the plastic surgeon will insert the PDO thread in pre-marked areas of the inner and outer thighs using fine needles or cannulas. This threading action produces a mechanical lift that is noticeable instantly. The procedure is fast and does not carry the risk of traditional thigh lift surgeries.
Depending on the size of the area that needs lifting, the surgeon may apply a local anesthetic to make the procedure less painful since it is minimally invasive.
Like the Sculptra dermal filler, the PDO thread is also a collagen stimulator. It will stimulate the production of collagen in the body. After some time, the body will absorb the thread completely but the collagen production will continue to make the skin around the thigh firm and plump.
PDO thread lift provides mechanical skin lift, collagen stimulation, tightens the skin, and improves skin texture and skin elasticity.
The procedure is also fast, effective and long-lasting. There is minimal downtime with this procedure and you won’t face any major post-treatment issues such as severe pain and a long recovery period. PDO thread for a thigh lift is safe, affordable, and a proven non-surgical technique for getting youthful and attractive upper legs.
