The surgery involves relocating adipo-dermal flaps and excising their excess. When the surgery is performed in the area of “breeches”, the adipo-dermal flaps are removed from outer side of the thigh. To remove folds on the inner surface of the thigh the incision is located in the groin. It is possible to combine both methods. On surgery completion the wounds are cosmetically stitched and special compression underware is worn.
