Depending on the quality of the connective tissue, the skin on the underside of the upper thigh may lose a significant amount of its elasticity, even at a young age. This loose or wrinkled tissue is unsightly and leads to skin irritation due to chafing. In some cases, targeted treatment of the upper thigh with thin liposuction cannulas is sufficient. This stimulates the skin’s contraction strength from the inside. If this is not enough, a lifting operation may make sense. The scar is hidden on the underside of the upper thigh or in the fold of the groin. For a buttock lift, the scar runs along the gluteal fold.
