Every so often, losing weight is just half of the story. Whether it’s via bariatric surgery or a combination of diet and exercise that helped you lose the extra pounds, you will most likely notice flabby skin in the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks. Apart from massive weight loss, age and genetics can also influence laxity of the skin. The Inland Empire thigh lift is one of Dr. Tehrani’s unique approaches to helping you completely achieve the bodily contours you desire after losing weight.
