Combined vs staged thigh lift and liposuction
Combining liposuction and a medial thigh lift
It is safe to combine liposuction and a medial thigh lift. Liposuction can be a very important part of the procedure when there is residual excess fat.In addition, many plastic surgeons believe that using liposuction to remove fat from the medial thigh prior to skin excision helps to preserve the lymphatic channels and thereby make the procedure safer. In my own practice, I use liposuction with my medial thigh lifts in all bit the thinnest patients.
