Body Contouring

THIGH LIFTS

ALL ABOUT
THIGH LIFTS

Like other body contouring procedures, thigh lifts are used to remove excess and loose skin, as well as excess fat from around the upper thigh area. The skin is tightened, helping to reshape the thigh and decrease the signs of ageing or weight loss associated with sagging or excess skin.

The surgery

Thigh lifts involve an incision being made at the fold meeting between the thigh and groin areas. The procedure is generally performed under general anesthesia, however, at times it can be performed under local anesthesia.

Some procedures will see tissue being removed down the inside of the thigh toward the knee, with excess skin being removed with controlled tension.

The thigh lift then tightens the skin, pulling the skin inward and helping to improve the contouring of the thigh.

A vertical thigh lift is anl operation that removes large pieces of excess skin from the inner thigh. The scar from this procedure is located horizontally within the groin crease and also vertically from the groin to the knee joint. The length of the scar is dependent on the amount of excess skin.

Our surgeons are available from the following hospitals for this procedure:

the recovery

After surgery our recovery specialists will given post-op instructions. It is important to follow carefully. You will be provided with a script for medication, which you will need to purchase after surgery and instructions on when to take the medication over the days ahead. You will be discharged from hospital when your companion picks you up from the hospital. All patients must have a companion to stay with them for 72hours following surgery.

The first week after surgery you should stick to gentle day-to-day activities. This includes minimal house duties, no lifting, staying home as much as possible and sleeping in an elevated position. Commence postoperative exercise (instructions given post surgery).

In the second week of recovery try not to raise your blood pressure too much and still sleep in an upright position. Patients will also be required to attend a postoperative appointment at our office in week 2. this will be scheduled prior to surgery.


In week 2 patients may:
  • Commence a light walk
  • Return to work in week 2 if you have an office job with little physical activity
  • Avoid sexual intercourse
  • Start driving provided they are not taking any pain medication. We also recommend waiting 3 days for the medication to be out of your system.
What are the risks ?

Thigh lift procedures, like all modern surgeries, may be accompanied with general discomfort, and pain and bleeding. Infection is rare, whilst bruising, swelling and feelings of tightness or numbness around the procedure site can be experienced with most body contouring procedures. This procedure may also cause asymmetry of scars on the legs, abnormal scarring, and fluid build-up/seroma formation.

If you are concerned about possible risks or complications that could occur with a thigh lift, be sure to discuss them with your surgeon.
