Thigh Lift
Thigh reduction surgically removes excess skin and fat from the inside of the upper thigh. Surgery is commonly performed after weight loss or previous liposuction surgery. Scarring begins in the groin and goes the length the inner thigh to the mid thigh. Thigh reduction improves the body contour when seen through trousers or tight dresses, but the scars will be visible when shorts or bathing suits are worn. A tight fitting garment is required for 6 weeks after the surgery.
