While laser liposuction removes fat, sculpting the thigh, liposculpture does not address loose skin of the inner thigh. If loose skin is present then a thigh lift may be indicated. A thigh lift removes loose skin of the inner thigh. Along with liposuction, removal of excess skin gives the inner thigh a tighter, firmer, more defined inner thigh.
The incisions vary on the amount of excess skin to be removed. One common technique used for a thigh lift places incisions in the groin, extending downward and wrapping around the back of the thigh. Another incision may be down the middle of the inner thigh. Excess skin is removed and the thigh is tightened.
