A medial thigh lift is done by making an incision in the groin crease and removing some excess skin in order to elevate the medial thigh skin. For patients who have a more significant amount of skin on the thighs, the incision can be extended down the medial thigh to the knee. This allows for removal of skin in a circumferential manner in addition to elevating the thigh skin.
Liposuction alone can also be used to get away with the resistant fat in the thighs and can be used to reduce those ugly bulges on the sides of hips, generally found in females. These are sometimes the only areas in females that cause cosmetic disfigurement.
