Medial Thigh Lift And Declive: Inner Thigh Lift Without Using Colle’s Fascia
Published 2010 · Medicine
The medial thigh aesthetic deformity frequently presents a challenging problem to the plastic surgeon. Skin laxity in the medial thigh area is the earliest sign of aging in the thighs and is one of the first signs of ptosis of the body. The skin of the medial thigh area is thin, and therefore, not elastic resulting in early relaxation with age, and does not respond well to liposuction due to poor retraction. By the age of 40 years in most patients, actual or potential laxity of the medial thigh tissue can lead to disappointing result after liposuction alone. Laxity of the medial thigh area may occur at an early age in patients with a history of obesity during childhood or early adulthood or in patients with the familial trait of thin, lax skin.
