Loose skin on the inner thigh is commonly seen in those who have lost significant amounts of weight in a relatively short period of time. In the overweight state the skin is very stretched and rapid weight loss leads to emptying of the fat below the skin, resulting in loose, unwanted, saggy skin which has lost all elasticity.
Unfortunately once there is an excess of skin no amount of exercise is able to ‘tone up’ or improve the appearance and the only solution is surgical removal.

The thigh lift is a procedure designed to lift and tighten loose skin around the inner thighs. The extent of the thigh lift depends on the amount of excess skin that needs to be removed.
The procedure itself may combine a modest amount of liposuction to remove any residual fat, with removal of skin into the groin crease and, for more extensive cases, removal down into the thigh itself. The idea is that the scar in the groin should sit as closely as possible to the natural groin crease. When the scar extends down into the thigh, it is placed on the inner aspect – usually ending towards the knee – area in an attempt to make it as inconspicuous as possible.
