Can I get thigh lipo and thigh lift at same time?
thigh liftliposuction

I was just wondering, because I thought that you couldn't do lipo and then make a cut, because the skin will die.

So if I plan to get a SMALL inner thigh lift, but need lipo on thighs, does that mean I have to have two seperate surgeries? Or is there a way to do both at same time? thank you very much!

You can have medial thigh liposuction and medial thigh at the same time, because you are not lifting the skin off.
I am not sure what you mean by SMALL inner thigh lift. Inner thigh lift (more)
