Lifting of the thighs

The thigh lifting (or inguinal-femoral lifting, or inguinal-femoral dermolipectomy) is a surgical procedure carried out to remove the skin and the fat excess in the interior region of the thighs. The procedure improves internal profile of the thighs, which become more tonic, deleting the annoyance caused by the rubbing of the inner surface of the limbs during walking or running. Usually the thigh lift requires an incision positioned along the inguinal crease, sometimes extended back until the infragluteal groove. In more serious cases, the scar can follow the circumference of the thigh and sometimes is associated with a vertical incision on the internal face of the thigh, variable in length, depending on the skin excess. The surgical procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia.
