A thigh lift is a procedure to remove excess skin and fat after weight loss, pregnancy or natural ageing. The procedure involves an incision in the inner thigh crease to tighten the skin. The incision can extend around the upper thigh and in the groin creases. Removal of the excess skin and fat can improve self-esteem and confidence.
