Thigh Lift (Thighplasty)


Excess skin and fat is not an uncommon problem. Whether you have lost a large amount of weight leaving excess skin in the inner thigh region or if you just seem to store fat in this area a medial thigh lift might be right for you. The thigh lift or thighplasty involves an incision placed over the inner thigh with the excision of the annoying excess skin and fat. A well done thigh lift should leave the inner thighs with a smooth contour with less excess skin.
