This is a young lady who had lost a great deal of weight with diet and exercising. About 5 years ago, she had actually undergone an abdominoplasty and now wished to address her backside. She wanted tightening of the loose skin across her flank and some improvement in her buttock contour. In the preop pictures, she noticed that she had maintained the results from her abdominoplasty for well over six years. On her backside, she had fullness in her flanks that gave her buttock a square look. Her upper portion of her buttock tended to blend into her flank collections. She underwent a buttock/thigh lift which elevated the skin across the buttocks and thighs. This involved suctioning and removal of excess skin across the flanks which converted her square buttock shape into a more (A) shape. This has given her a much more defined feminine "S" shape to her flanks and buttock. The contouring of her flanks puts her buttock contour in greater relief and much more feminine in nature.

This is a 35-year-old lady that complained of the inner thighs rubbing together. Also, she had excessive hanging skin in this area. It also stayed moist in the warm summer months because of the redundant skin in the groin and medial thigh area. She noted that her shorts and jeans would rub together when she walked. She underwent a medial thigh plasty. We have completely eliminated the redundant tissue in the medial thigh area. Now the thighs do not rub together. Also, we have eliminated the excessive wetness of the medial thigh skin. As you can see on both the anterior and the posterior views, her thighs look much improved.
