Inner Thigh Reduction
The inner thigh is another area where we store fat. The situation is similar to what we sometimes see with the arms. Moderately fat inner thighs can be treated with liposuction alone. Large fatty inner thighs may need a combination of liposuction and thigh lift. After significant weight loss or with advancing age the inner thigh skin often becomes very flabby. This condition is best treated by thigh lift. Thigh lift procedures are essentially skin subtraction procedures. The resultant scar usually is discrete and is located in the crease between the inner thigh and pubic region. When inner thigh lifts are done after massive weight loss, a much larger scale skin subtraction may be needed, and in these cases an additional vertical scar on the inner thigh may be necessary. We have ways of minimizing scar appearance.
