This operation is performed on patients who have wrinkled, sagging skin in the region of the upper and inner thigh from varying causes. An incision is made in the groin crease and in some instances vertically down the inner aspect of the upper thigh as well in order to remove the excess skin. It may also be combined with liposuction to improve the contour further.
A support garment is worn for 4-6 weeks post- operative.
