Thigh lift surgery reshapes the thighs by reducing excess hanging skin, and even fat, in some cases, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body. A thigh lift improves the overall contours of the thighs, and the fit of clothing and may be performed in combination with liposuction and other body contouring procedures.
Did you know?
This surgery results in a more flattering contour, making it easier to wear tighter-fitting clothes and swimming apparel, and allowing you to be more active and participate in everyday life. The procedures will improve your self-confidence and often the motivation and ability to exercise.
What should I expect during thigh lift?
For inner thigh lift, incisions are made along the inner aspect of the thigh and/or in the groin crease. The surgery involves a general anaesthetic and might require a one-day stay in the hospital. Most people return to work within 2-3 weeks following the surgery.
What post-operative instructions will I need to follow after thigh lift?
A pressure compression garment must be worn for 4-6 weeks after the surgery, which minimizes the bruising and swelling and helps produce an even contour. This garment is similar to a girdle and can be worn under normal clothes. Heavy activities and sports should be avoided for 4-6 weeks.
