Sometimes, thigh liposuction alone is not enough to reshape large or flabby thighs correctly. This occurs particularly when there is an excessive skin component. Often, this may be attributable to the patient who has lost a lot of weight. In these circumstances, excess deposits of skin and fat around the thigh area may require a lateral or medial thigh lift to reshape the area.
For a medial thigh lift, Dr Miroshnik hides the incisions in the groin area, while for a lateral thigh lift the incisions are hidden in the lateral bikini line. Either way, the procedures will produce an immediately apparent difference in the contour of the thigh region.
