Liposuction alone may reshape the inner and outer thigh, but can tighten the thigh skin only to a small degree. The inner thigh skin is difficult to treat with liposuction alone. A thigh lift can remove the loose skin and further improve the result.
A thigh lift is especially appropriate after loosing a significant amount of weight as the weight loss often results in a large amount of loose skin of the inner thighs. Both the inner and outer thigh may be treated alone or together.
