A thigh lift is appropriate for patients with loose skin on the inner thigh. This loose, extra skin can result from weight loss or aging. Constant rubbing can result in chronic irritation and infection. A thigh lift removes loose skin and fat from the thighs and can improve both appearance and comfort. The incisions are placed in the groin crease and/or the inner thigh, depending on how much extra skin is present.The procedure is performed under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia. The recovery period is ten days to two weeks.
