Thank you for asking about your liposuction.Liposuction is done by areas - liposuction of the inner thigh will not include other areas, it is the inner thigh only, the area where the thighs touch. Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes  - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FAC

Depending on the patient's anatomy, liposuction may need to be performed in the front and back of the medial or inner thighs.  At times, changing the position of the patients thighs during surgery is all that needs to be done to achieve contouring.

Liposuction of the medial thigh would include only the inner aspect of the thigh.  Many patients also have other areas of the thigh addressed at the same time, but it is not included under the heading you mentioned.

liposuction of the medial thigh involves fat removal from the inner aspect of the thighs.  Consult an experienced BCPS for treatment.

Liposuction of the medial thighs is just that, suction of the medial aspect.  The posterior thigh is often considered another area.  Best of luck.
