There are different parts of the body where aging as well as weight loss are very evident. The inner thigh is definitely one of those areas. As we age the skin of the inner thigh becomes loose, saggy and droops even in the thinnest people. This is exacerbated when the person has been overweight. Some ethnicities, like Hispanics, specifically women, have the particular characteristic of having heavy thighs, so this is even more of a concern.
In many cases there can be uncomfortable rubbing and irritation of the crural area or area between the legs. The thigh lift, most commonly inner thigh lift removes the extra amount of skin and fat that accumulates between the legs, relieving these symptoms. The incision is placed in the groin area and down from the groin towards the knee about 7 cms. It heals well, but is visible, so this must be considered when deciding on the procedure.
People that have had massive weight loss are good candidates for this procedure since it removes unwanted and uncomfortable excess skin, reduces body weight and motivates the person to be more physically active as well as more comfortable.
