As we grow older, the skin loses elasticity in the thighs and the upper arms. It then hangs down in folds, especially on the inner sides. This can also occur after major weight loss.
With a thigh lift, these wrinkled skin areas are removed.

In addition, there is often fat accumulation on the outside of the thigh, mimicking “saddle bags”. Since simultaneous liposuction is not recommended for limb lifts, we can perform a refinement liposuction after the swelling has subsided, in order to achieve an aesthetically optimal appearance.
You should be at your desired weight before the surgery in order to obtain an optimal result. Wight fluctuations can jeopardise your desired goal.

What happens during thigh lift surgery?

The operation is carried out as an inpatient procedure and under general anaesthesia. There are different surgical techniques. The incision is made on the inner side of the thigh; groin incisions are usually not necessary. The resulting scar fades over time. If the hanging folds are not very pronounced, a shorter incision can be made. After the operation, you are required to wear a pair of compression trousers.

You should refrain from strenuous physical activity for 6 to 8 weeks. The stitches do not have to be removed as we use self-dissolving stitches.

Before your surgery, we will book you in for an initial consultation to discuss your expectations and explain the risks.
