Thigh lift

Thigh lift is the name for various types of operation performed to remove excess loose skin and sometimes fat from the thighs. Although most thigh lifts involve the inner thighs, less frequent varieties include thigh lift from the outer thigh or full thigh lift. This is performed in two phases.

BRIEF INFORMATION

Removing loose skin and fat from the thigh area
Only possible solution for significant weight loss
Also performed on the inner thighs
We know that pregnancy or major weight loss can stretch out the skin on your stomach, which then lacks the elasticity to shrink back to how it was. The same happens with thighs. After weight loss or overly aggressive liposuction the skin on the thighs may be left loose and sagging. This is mainly an aesthetic problem, but can also have a negative impact on physical and mental health.

WHAT IS A THIGH LIFT?

Thigh lift is an umbrella term for operations performed to remove excess skin and fat from the thigh area. Most often women ask for this operation to resolve trouble areas on their inner thighs, although if they have lost a great deal of weight, they may find a full thigh lift more helpful. Optimal results often involve combining thigh lift with liposuction.

THIGH LIFT IN PRAGUE

You need a personal consultation before every aesthetic operation. If you are traveling to ABClinic Art & Beauty from another country, you can have the first consultation using photographs or online. The surgeon will let you know whether a thigh lift (or combined thigh lift and liposuction) is an appropriate solution to your problem. The surgeon will assess which type of thigh lift is most suitable for you and may suggest a different operating technique such as liposuction alone.

As thigh lift is performed under general anesthesia, you will need to have a pre-operation examination at our clinic or with your GP.

OPERATION

The operation is performed under general anesthesia and may take between one and three hours depending on the scope and type of the procedure. For a combined procedure, first the surgeon suctions the appropriate amount of fat tissue and then performs the thigh lift. For an inner thigh lift, the surgeon removes excess skin in one of two ways: with an incision in the groin or a vertical incision along the length of the inner thigh. These two techniques may be combined if necessary. For an outer thigh lift, the surgeon makes a curved incision to avoid disrupting the aesthetic harmony of the outer thighs. Finally, the surgeon closes the incisions, applies a sterile dressing and puts a compression garment on the area.

AFTER THE OPERATION

This operation requires a brief in-patient stay at our clinic. Afterwards you will need to be mostly on bed rest for 10 to 14 days, so make sure to arrange for time off work. You will need to wear the post-surgical compression garment to minimize bruising and swelling for six to eight weeks. We consider the best post-surgical compression garments to be those by the France-based MEDICAL-Z, available for purchase at our clinic or e-shop.

We usually recommend beginning post-surgical lymphatic drainage and regular massage two weeks after surgery. In addition to daily home care, we also recommend twice weekly therapy using our LPG device for as long as you wear the compression garment. The length of time to wear the compression garment depends on the scope and type of procedure as well as the quality of the skin and subcutaneous tissue. Thigh lift plus liposuction usually requires six to eight weeks in the compression garment. You can resume exercising and sports gradually starting four weeks after surgery.

PRICE

The final price of the operation will be set after a personal consultation with a doctor at our clinic. The prices given in our price list are for the purposes of orientation only.

POSSIBLE COMPLICATIONS

Every medical procedure involves a certain amount of risk. While your surgeon and our clinic’s surgical team will do everything in their power to ensure no complications arise, certain adverse effects cannot be ruled out entirely. Swelling and bruising is temporary and quite normal in the first few days after the procedure.
