Topic: Thigh


  
  Thigh - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In humans the thigh is the area between the pelvis and buttocks and the knee.
This bone is very thick and strong (due to the high proportion of cortical bone), and forms a ball and socket joint at the hip, and a condylar joint at the knee.
The deep venous system of the thigh consists of the femoral vein, the proximal part of the popliteal vein, and various smaller vessels; these are the site of proximal deep venous thrombosis.

There is one bone (Rigid connective tissue that makes up the skeleton of vertebrates) in the thigh called the femur (The longest and thickest bone of the human skeleton; extends from the pelvis to the knee).
This bone is very thick and strong, and forms a ball and socket joint (Junction by which parts or objects are joined together) at the hip (The ball-and-socket joint between the head of the femur and the acetabulum), and a condylar joint at the knee.
These muscles are supplied by the femoral nerve and the femoral artery (The chief artery of the thigh; a continuation of the external iliac artery).

The plastic surgery operation known as thigh lift, thighplasty or excisional thigh lipectomy, is a procedure which addresses a range of problems in the inner thighs, such as: excess fat deposits, loose skin, weak muscles and stretch marks.
During the thigh lift procedure itself, an incision is made in the groin crease at the junction of the thigh and groin to access the excess tissue and skin.
During an outer thigh and thigh lift the surgical incision is made from hip to hip across the top of the buttocks.

 Thigh lift Information from Plastic Surgeons in Baltimore, Maryland
The thigh lift is a procedure designed to tighten the skin of the thigh and reduce sagging in the inner or outer thigh.
If your inner thighs are very big and have a lot of fatty tissue it might be best to do liposuction first to get rid of as much of the excess tissue as possible.
If the skin of the inner thigh sags or is droopy, a thigh lift is ideal as it will tighten up the skin and smoothen the contour of the inner thigh.
