So what is a thigh lift? Well, these actually 2 different procedures in terms of thigh lift. One can be from the lateral thigh the outer thigh one can be from the medial thigh. Commonly with body lift procedures a lot of laxity from the upper lateral thigh can be treated with body lift but sometimes I would do an additional thigh lift for patients after a completed body lift which is making incisions along the flank elevating the soft tissue down the lateral thigh and lifting it up and taking the excess skin and tissue out. The medial thigh lift takes out tissue from the inner thigh in the groin region and modifications of that as well.
