Medial Thigh Lift

Fix that floppy inner thigh

Medial thigh lift is a cosmetic procedure aimed at reducing the loose skin and extra fatty tissue in the inner aspect of the thigh. A tighter, toned, more youthful inner thigh is achieved with a very well hidden scar in the groin. This procedure is often combined with Liposuction.
