Thigh reduction, inner thigh life?

I had my last ps about 10 years ago and I have always wanted to have my thighs done because I have such a difficult time buying clothes and well, they just look out of proportion with the rest of my body? It doesn't seem like I see much about this surgery any more, has anyone had one recently?

Thank you!

How was your recovery from the thigh lift? I've been approved for one and I'm worried about the recovery.
thanks!

For me, the recovery from the thigh lift was the hardest because I had some wound separation that took extra time to fully heal. That ended up being more mentally taxing than I had expected!

I would, since my excess skin was problematic for me. I would not have asked my surgeon to extend to my calves, but I'm very happy with the results.

Thanks! I make my appointment next Wednesday... I'm still healing for my extended TT and arms.

Dr Francisco Sauceda in Monterrey Mexico did mine . It leaves a lot of scarring ( no bikini bottoms with legs cut up to the waist a la the disco era lol) but in my case healed and faded fast . My legs which were kinda loose skinned n shaky came out BEAUTIFUL .

I also asked him to liposuck my knee area that also helped . It's not supposed to b a very lasting surgery but five years post op I'm still massively happy :)
