A medial thigh lift, also known as an inner thigh lift, is designed to address the appearance of the thighs by the removal of excess skin and fat. A medial thigh lift can be required after a significant weight loss to remove loose skin around the thighs. A medial thigh lift can be combined with a combination of liposuction, a tummy tuck, breast lift, or an arm lift for a complete procedure referred to as a lower body lift.
Medial Thigh Lifts Benefits
A medial thigh lift can result in a firmer and rejuvenated appearance in the thigh area and promote a more proportional thigh appearance. A medial thigh lift is the best way to create a space between both thighs, which will provide an aesthetic benefit as well as a functional benefit, increasing comfort in the area and allowing for increased physical activity.
About Medial Thigh Lifts
A medial thigh lift starts with an incision starting where the leg meets the groin and is hidden within the body’s natural fold to avoid visible scarring. The size of the incision will vary depending on the work being done and in most cases is easily coverable by clothing.
A medial thigh lift requires general anesthesia and can last anywhere from one to three hours, depending on the work being done and if the procedure is combined with any additional procedures. Patients should expect moderate bruising and discomfort considering the complexity of the procedure. Swelling and bruising typically lasts for a few weeks but patients are able to return to their daily activities within a few days. The effects of a medial thigh lift are lasting and will be visible as soon as swelling and bruising subside.
