You may have heard of thigh reduction surgery and assumed it to be the same as or similar to liposuction. Both surgeries aim to achieve a more toned appearance of the thighs, however they are very different. Thigh reduction surgery removes excess skin and fat of the inner thigh which may have resulted from significant weight loss following bariatric surgery, or through diet and exercise. Liposuction removes fat in specific areas to address contour irregularities and create a more aesthetic body shape.
