Liposuction removes excess fat but it does not remove excess skin. For this reason, a thigh lift is performed, which removes the surplus of fat and skin in the groin crease area. This type of lift has a tightening effect on the thighs.
Depending on the operated areas, the scar is concealed in the fold of the groin or beneath the crease of the buttock.
The best candidates for this type of operation are people who have lost a significant amount of weight and who have a surplus of skin that has lost its elasticity.
A thigh lift takes one to two hours and is performed under general anesthesia.
