What is the difference between a thigh lift and thigh liposuction?

What is the difference between a thigh lift and thigh liposuction?


The inner thigh area is a common concern in women who have gained or lost significant amount of weight.  The inner thigh area contains fat that is hormonally sensitive and genetically predisposed to the accumulation of fat deposits.  This area of unwanted fat is often less responsive to normal diet and exercise and lingers on despite attempts to reduce the body fat in the area.  There are two procedures performed by Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian, a Los Angeles plastic surgeon practicing in Santa Monica and Beverly Hills. 


An inner thigh lift restores the contours of the thigh and is performed by removing excess skin and fat from the inner thigh area.  This is done for patients who have excessive skin and fat along the upper inner thigh.  If the amount of skin resiliency is appropriate, Dr. Karamanoukian may recommend an inner thigh liposuction technique to remove the excess skin and allow the skin to retract.  Candidate for inner thigh liposuction often has few stretch marks and good skin resiliency in the inner thighs. 


The surgical alternatives including an inner thigh lift or inner thigh liposuction provide comprehensive option for recontouring of the thigh area.  The thigh is an area of cosmetic concern and undergoing a thigh lift or thigh liposuction will allow you to wear certain clothes and minimize the risk of the thighs rubbing against each other.
