Thigh Lift

A thigh lift reshapes the upper thigh resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of your lower body

The thigh lift is an aesthetic surgery procedure designed to reduce excess fat and skin from your upper thigh and lower buttock areas resulting in improved firmness and contours.

If fitness and weight loss efforts have failed to help you achieve your goals for a body that is firmer, more youthful-looking and more reflective of your overall body image, a surgical thigh lift may be the answer you are looking for.

About the Procedure

Advanced techniques usually allow incisions to be placed in strategic locations where they can be hidden by most types of clothing and swimsuits.

The pattern of incisions varies depending on the area or areas to be treated, degree of correction and patient and surgeon preference. Improving the contours of the outer thigh may require an incision extending from the groin around the hip. Your plastic surgeon will determine which incisions are appropriate.

Through these incisions your plastic surgeon will reshape and tighten the underlying tissues, and skin will be reduced and re-draped resulting in a smoother, better-toned lower body contour. Deep support sutures within underlying tissues will close the incisions and help to form the newly shaped contours.

During the procedure, medications will be administered to enhance your comfort. The choices of anaesthesia include intravenous sedation and general anaesthesia. Your doctor will recommend the best option for you.

What to expect during recovery

The smoother, tighter contouring that results from a thigh lift, although initially obscured by some swelling and bruising, will be apparent almost immediately. Skin quality will also improve dramatically in both appearance and feel. A compression garment may be required for several weeks following your procedure to minimize swelling and support the tissues as they heal.

Your New Look

The results of a thigh lift are visible almost immediately. However, it may take several months for the final results to develop fully. Some visible scars will remain, and it is natural to lose some firmness as your body ages, but providing you maintain a stable weight and level of fitness, your overall improvement will be long lasting.
