The types of thigh lifts are the bilateral lift, medial lift, and inner lift. The type of lift that will work best for you depends on your goals, current condition, and health concerns. If you are looking to boost skin elasticity due to age or significant weight loss, then an inner lift may be best for you. A bilateral lift will benefit individuals with excess skin on the upper and/or outer portions of the thighs. A medial lift is best for patients who have experienced extreme weight loss and have excess skin on upper portions of the inner thigh.
