The inside thighs are one of the areas of the body where the skin is thinnest. This can easily result in hanging skin especially if a lot of weight has been lost or simply due to the ageing process. The hanging skin can create a distressing roll of fat which can lead to problems such as rubbing, often resulting in sores on the skin. By removing the excess skin and fat during surgery, a much more pleasing look to the inner thigh is achieved. A great feature of this procedure is that the scar can be hidden in the area where the upper thigh meets the groin.
