Are Your Thighs Itching to Try the “Thighlighting” Trend?

What Is Thighlighting?

Thighlighting goes a step further than simply slathering your legs in makeup to give the illusion of slenderer stems. Unlike leg contouring, thighlighting is an actual cosmetic procedure that combines liposuction, a thigh lift and sometimes even calf implants.

Who’s the Best Candidate for a Thigh Lift?

At first glance, it might seem like hopping on board with the thighlighting trend is a no-brainer, but the truth is that the best candidates for a thigh lift/lipo combo are guys and gals who have lost a lot of weight and are left with loose skin. Otherwise, liposuction can probably fly solo to help you get rid of a few lumps and bumps.

Thigh liposuction on its own is a pretty common treatment, but you might want to leave the calf implants out.

Other Liposuction Trends

If you’re not completely in love with the idea of a total thigh makeover but do have some trouble spots, an innovative liposuction trend called 360 degreelipo might be a better option.

Rather than just work on one isolated area of the body like traditional liposuction, 360 degreelipo can banish fat in multiple areas of your midsection, back and upper thighs in one go. Just make sure this is something that your cosmetic surgeon offers and that he or she has experience with this type of liposuction.
