Thigh Lift //
A thigh lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure to remove loose skin and excess fatty deposits in the upper inner thigh through an incision in the groin crease. Liposuction of this and other areas are commonly performed in conjunction. In patients following massive weight loss who have excess skin that extends down to the knee, a vertical incision from groin to knee on the inner surface of the thigh is also used. If laxity exists in the outer thigh, that is corrected with a body lift procedure.
This procedure results in thinner thighs without saggy excess skin in the inner thigh. Ease of movement is improved in many patients. These results are permanent and can be dramatic. In some cases liposuction may be used to treat other problematic areas as well as in the inner thigh in conjunction with a thigh lift to remove excess fat in the upper thighs just prior to removing the excess skin.
