Summary of Thigh Lift
What is a Thigh Lift?
With inner thigh cosmetic procedures, the circumference of the inner thigh is reduced, creating a far leaner appearance. A Medial thigh lift will remove redundant and wrinkling skin from the inner thigh area providing a smoother contour.
A Lateral thigh lift is usually recommended for patients who have experienced great weight loss and have sagging skin on the outside of their thigh.
An incision is made along your inner thigh (groin area) which allows for a wedge of excess skin and fat to be removed. The remaining skin is reshaped to contour to your underlying musculature.
An incision is made from the groin crease to the back. This may include the buttocks as well as the outer thighs. Excess skin, fat, and tissue is then removed directly from the outer thigh.
