Thigh Lift

When fitness and weight-loss efforts fail to achieve your dreams of a youthful-looking body and well-toned legs, a surgical thigh lift may be the right option for you. 

Thigh lift surgery is specifically designed to reshape the thighs by removing excess skin and, in some cases, reducing localised fat. This results in smoother-looking skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body which you’ll be proud to show off. 

Due to the nature of the procedure, a consultation is required for personalised quotes

Typical Uses

You should consider a thigh lift if you are looking to treat:

Whilst a thigh lift holds a variety of advantages, opting for this procedure is a highly personal decision. You should only do it for yourself and never to fulfil someone else’s desires or to attempt to fit any sort of ideal image.

What It Entails

During a thigh lift, our plastic surgeon will work to treat very flabby thighs and localised pockets of fat in the thigh region. After being sedated for your ensured comfort, an incision is made using incision patterns which will differ according to the area or areas being treated, the extent of the surgery, and the preferences of the patient and surgeon. 

In the case of an inner thigh lift, the incision may be made along the groin, extending towards the back of the thigh. Alternatively, excess skin may be removed from the groin down to the knee by making an incision along the inseam. For those patients that do not require more than a ‘minimal incision inner thigh lift’, a small incision is made in the groin area.

Similarly, when getting an outer thigh lift, the incision may be made from the groin and extending around the hip and across the back. These are usually strategically placed so that any scarring may be hidden underneath clothing. 

Once the desired results have been achieved, the incisions are closed up once more to reveal a newly contoured and well-toned thigh.

How It Works

1.During the consultation

If you are interested in getting a thigh lift, you should start by booking a consultation with our plastic surgeon. During the consultation, you will be able to express what you hope to gain from this surgery and, after reviewing your medical history, our doctor will be able to determine whether you are eligible to undergo this type of procedure. If you are a viable candidate, our doctor will outline the best course of treatment to ensure that you achieve optimal results.

Prior to the surgery, you may be asked to get a medical evaluation, take certain medications or adjust your current medications, refrain from smoking and avoid ingesting drugs that may increase bleeding.

2.During the procedure

During the surgical procedure, medications are first administered for your ensured comfort. The choices include intravenous sedation and general anaesthesia, and your doctor will recommend the best choice for you prior to the surgery. Following sedation, the doctor will proceed by making the required incisions which will vary according to the area or areas to be treated, the degree of corrections needed, and the preferences of the patient and surgeon.

At this point, excess skin and fat is removed, and the thigh is reshaped to look smooth and well-toned. Finally, the skin is stretched over your freshly contoured thigh and the incisions are closed up using sutures, skin adhesive tapes or clips. Overall, the procedure takes approximately two to three hours to complete, leaving you with beautifully shaped and toned thighs.

3.After the treatment

Post-surgery, bandages or dressing may be used to cover your incisions whilst a small and thin tube may be provisionally positioned under the skin to drain any excess blood or fluid. Before you go home to recover, you will be given specific instructions on: how to care for your surgical site(s) following surgery, what medications to apply or take orally to promote healing and reduce the risk of infection, specific concerns to look for at the surgical site or in your general health, and when to follow up with your plastic surgeon.

As the swelling and bruising start to subside - and any scarring starts to fade - your thigh will start to look smoother and more tightly contoured, giving you more youthful looking thighs to flaunt on the beach or when dressing up for an evening out.

Frequently Asked Questions

As with any procedure, side effects may occur, and the risks and potential complications will be discussed in detail during the initial consultation. Possible risks may include:

  • Anesthesia risks
  • Bleeding
  • Damage to deeper structures such as nerves, blood vessels and muscles
  • Fatty tissue under the skin might die (fat necrosis)
  • Fluid accumulation (seroma)
  • Infection
  • Numbness or other changes in skin sensation
  • Pain, which may persist
  • Poor wound healing
  • Possible need for revisional surgery
  • Sutures may not absorb, but spontaneously surface through the skin, causing irritation, drainage and redness
  • Unfavourable scarring

Good candidates for a thigh lift are typically :

  • Adults with notable skin laxity in the inner and outer thigh
  • Adults enjoying a relatively stable weight and who are not highly overweight
  • Healthy individuals that do not suffer from medical conditions that could impair healing or increase risk of surgery
  • Non-smokers
  • Individuals who have a positive outlook and realistic expectations

As long, as you maintain a stable weight and general fitness habits, the results of thigh lift surgery will be long-lasting. It is important to keep in mind that the body will keep ageing, and losing some firmness is natural. Nevertheless, most of your improvement should be relatively permanent.
