Abstract

Treatment of the inner thighs by liposuction can bring a considerable improvement to the esthetic appearance of the female body. Before the advent of suction, the only treatment consisted of large trochanteric excisions leaving excessive scarring going from the inner anterior aspect of the thigh until the inner posterior aspect. Indications include patients who are simply obese with the inner thigh excess as a part of their general obesity which includes the outer thighs, the whole leg and thigh as well as the whole body, patients having difficulties with touching thighs due to narrow pelvis and due to this configuration the slightest amount of obesity in the inner thighs creates a nuisance, and patients with modest fat excess consisting only of a soft and flabby texture in the inner thighs which are touching. The patients should be forewarned of the very real possibility of creating dents and depressions.
