What is a thigh lift?

Thigh lift, involves the removal of loose and hanging skin from the inside of the thighs. This tightens the skin of the thigh giving it a more attractive and youthful appearance.

What does thigh lift surgery involve?

Thigh lift involves making an incision on the inside of the upper leg at the level of the inguinal crease. Excess skin and soft tissue are then pulled up over this incision. The excess skin and soft tissue are then cut away. The incision is then closed, leaving a hidden scar on the inside of the thigh crease, and resulting in a much better contour of the thigh.
