A simple procedure has been developed to correct this laxity of the upper, inner thighs. This consists of symmetrical resection of a crescent-shaped segment of skin and subcutaneous tissue having the distribution of an L1 embryological dermatome, just inferior to the inguinal crease. Despite temporary sensory loss and spreading of scars in some patients, the procedure has been gratifying to both patient and surgeon. Patients must be carefully selected, as the procedure does not correct either trochanteric lipodystrophy or ptosis, or lipodystrophy medial to and just superior to the knee.
