Lockwood's changes in surgical design of the medial thigh lift have improved results and decreased complications but still have the fundamental problem of poor tissue fixation to rigid tissue. To provide increased support to the medial thigh incisions, modifications to this technique have been tried. This article describes the authors' approach to the medial thigh lift in both those patients who have undergone traditional weight loss and the massive weight-loss thigh-lift patient.
