The vertical crural dermolipectomy is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat tissue from the inner side of the thighs.
Vertical crural dermolipectomy is not a surgical treatment for overweight. Obese individuals who intend to lose weight should postpone any kind of body contouring surgery until they are able to maintain their weight loss.
There are several different techniques of vertical crural dermolipectomy. It can be combined with other forms of body contouring surgery including liposuction, or it can be performed at the same time as other elective surgeries.
