Thigh lifting, also known as cruroplasty, allows for a rejuvenation of the thighs through excision of skin and excess fat.
It is a surgery performed more frequently on patients who have undergone significant weight loss. In these cases, the redundancy of skin that sometimes settles on the thighs is significant, with negative repercussions on day-to-day life and on self-esteem.
Cruroplasty is the procedure that removes this skin as well as excess fat. The incision is usually made between the groin and the knee, and can be linear, in the shape of a “T” or “L”. This is in the least visible area of the thigh, that is, on the inner side. In selected cases, it can be associated with liposuction.
