The inner thigh area can be a concern for many patients and can cause problems such as rashes due to constant rubbing of the skin.  Removing skin and fat through a well concealed incision in the groin crease can lift, slim, and shape the thigh.  An inner thigh incision is sometimes needed to tighten the thigh and create space between the thighs.  For patients with minimal fat and good skin quality, liposuction can be a scarless alternative.
