After weight loss, the inner thigh area can be left with excess skin. No amount of diet or exercise will retract the skin sufficiently. Removing skin and fat is a reliable way of tightening the skin.

Body lifting


(Arm lifts; also known as brachioplasty)

With significant weight loss, or just normal ageing, patients can have excess skin and fat hanging from their upper arms. This can be addressed by removing the excess tissues during surgery. The length of scar will depend on the technique used by the surgeon, from a ‘mini’ technique with a scar just in the armpit, to a more conventional method with a longer scar along the inside of the arm and a variable length to the elbow.


This operation removes unwanted skin and fat, and may be used to tighten the rectus muscles to flatten the abdomen and bring in the waist. There are differing grades of this procedure, from ‘mini’ in which only skin and fat are removed with a short scar, to a longer scar with repositioning of the umbilicus and tightening of the muscles.

Inner thigh lifts

Also common after significant weight loss, the inner thigh area tends to lose volume and sag. The skin in this region doesn’t contract as well as other areas. The scar left by the removal of skin and fat is in the thigh crease and continues under the buttock a variable distance, depending on the patient.
