In certain cases where the skin quality is good and there is some excessive fat but no sagging skin, liposuction alone is sufficient. However, if there is a sagging skin with excess fat tissue, leg lift surgery is necessary.
If the excess skin is only in the groin area, it can be stretched and tightened up, leaving a limited scar that can be hidden by underwear. However in most cases, the excess skin is in a form of bagging from the groin to the inner thigh. In this case, the thigh lifting procedure is performed by leaving a vertical scar in the leg that extends from the groin all the way through the inner thigh. This scar is hard to be noticed as it is located in the inner thigh. The important criteria here is your skin quality, your general condition and the technique that the doctor will prefer for the best result.
