Abstract
Medial thighplasty is a surgical technique thatís reduce excess skin and fat in the medial part of the thighs and improve in the same time the skin quality and tone. Because of the changes which occur with age and weight loss, the skin and subcutaneous tissue of the medial thigh region show relaxation from the loss of tone and elasticity, with inevitable ptosis of the tissues. Medial contouring of the thigh is frequently requested to improve appearance and function of medial thigh deformities, following massive weight loss or aging process. This surgical procedure can be associated with a significant rate of complications especially postoperative edema and scar migration, improved by performing simultaneous liposuction and anchorage sutures to guard against the effect of heavy skin flaps.
A total of 13 female patients presented during the period from January 2014 to March 2019 complaining of moderate to severe thigh laxity with or without lipodystrophy. In 10 patients medial transverse thigh lift was performed, when the laxity was particularly in the upper half of the tight. Whereas, in the other three patients a vertical thigh lift was chosen considering the location of the laxity that toke the whole tight. In both groups an aggressive liposuction was performed and systematic anchorage suture to the colles fascia. All patients recovered well in 2 weeks and showed improvement of thigh contour. No Scar downward displacement or no skin necrosis or seroma was encountered neither labial distortion.
The objectives of this article are to expose the modern techniques of face lift of the thigh, to specify the expected results with their limits, as well as to highlight the various complications with their management.

Key words: Medial thigh lift, Body contouring, Scar migration, liposuction assisted
