FAQs on Thigh Lift

Thigh Lift surgery is a procedure designed to tone and reshapes your legs, getting rid of any embarrassing slackness of the skin. The process removes excess skin and fat, and repositions the surrounding tissue to create a firmer contour and a more youthful Look.

Both the aging process and rapid weight loss can result in loose skin on the thighs. If this has happened to you, you may benefit from a thigh lift. You do need to be aware, though, that there will be scarring, although a good thigh lift surgeon will conceal much of the scars in the bodies natural contours. Above all, your expectations must be realistic.

Several different kinds of cosmetic surgery procedures are popularly called a thigh lift. These target different areas of the thigh and upper leg to give you specific desired results.

For sagging and droopy skin on the inner thigh, an inner thigh lift is the best bet. It specifically targets the inner thigh, and eliminates excess fat and skin from the inner thigh. It can also treat reduced skin elasticity from sudden weight loss, and ageing. Incisions are made at the groin, between the thigh and the pubic area, and excess skin is trimmed, fat removed, and skin is tightened. A bilateral thigh lift tightens the skin of your leg on the front and the outside. The incisions are at the top, in the groin, and the tightening and suturing shows effect on both sides of the leg. A medial thigh lift on the other hand reduces and tightens excess skin and fat only on the upper inner thigh, in a specifically targeted way. The incision is at groin, but continues to the back, following the crease of the hips. Excess skin and fat are removed, tightening the remaining skin on the leg.

Generally, the risk of complications with a thigh lift is quite low. However, there are no minor surgeries, just minor surgeons. Choose an experienced thigh lift surgeon, so as to avoid or lessen the risks of serious mishaps. Possible complications are haematomas, infection or nerve damage. Although major problems are rare, a reputable surgeon will discuss all the options and risks with you. When going to another country for a thigh lift surgery, always check that the surgeon and the clinic you are considering have the right kind of credentials, infrastructure, and experience to ensure a safe and effective experience.

Recovery usually takes up to two weeks after thigh lift surgery, and non-strenuous normal activity can be resumed after two or three weeks. However, patients are usually advised to refrain from strenuous work, sports, exercise, and sexual activity for about six weeks after their thigh lift. The scars that remain are in less visible parts of the anatomy, and easily hidden under clothes, under things or bathing suits.

Prices for Thigh Lift Surgery vary greatly depending on where you opt to get your thigh lift surgery performed.
