Thigh lift

Plastic surgery

Pregnancy or major weight loss can stretch out the skin on the stomach, which then lacks the elasticity to shrink back to its former state. 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.

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

What is thigh lift

Thigh lift is an umbrella term for surgeries performed to remove excess skin and fat from the thigh area. Women usually ask for this procedure to resolve problematic 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.

What can you gain from this procedure

  • Removing loose skin and fat from the thigh area
  • The only possible solution for significant weight loss
  • Also performed on the inner thighs

Before the procedure

If you are traveling to ABClinic Art & Beauty from abroad, you can have the first consultation using photographs or online. A surgeon will let you know whether a thigh lift (or combined thigh lift and liposuction) is an appropriate solution to your problem.

The procedure

The surgery 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, a surgeon first removes 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.

After the procedure

This procedure requires brief in-patient care at our clinic. You will need to be mostly on bed rest for ten to fourteen days. You will need to wear a post-surgical compression garment for six to eight weeks.

We usually recommend beginning post-surgical lymphatic drainage and regular massages two weeks after surgery. You can resume exercising and sports gradually, starting four weeks after the surgery.
