Also known as Dermolipectomy or Thigh Lift, Cruroplasty is the surgery that removes excess skin from the thigh region.

When the patient who comes to us does not have skin laxity, it is possible to achieve more defined, firm, and contoured legs only through liposuction. However, if the patient suffers from significant flaccidity, the solution will also have to be Cruroplasty. In these cases, only liposuction can cause the opposite effect and accentuate the sagging situation, so it is necessary to remove the excess skin to achieve the best possible contour.


Horizontal or inguinal cruroplasty: the incision is made strategically in the natural fold of the groin. It is through this route that the excess skin will be removed.

Vertical Cruroplasty: the incision is made not only in the natural fold of the groin, but also on the inner side of the thigh. Recommended for significant cases of excess skin.

Surgical time: 2 to 3 hours
