Thighplasty (Thigh Lift)

Thighplasty (thigh lift) is a surgery that involves removing the excess skin or fat from the upper inner thighs area and tightening the skin around it to adjust the contour of the inner thigh.

Your surgeon will make an incision at the fold where the groin and thigh meet, which will extend along the inner part of the thigh towards the knee. Then, the excess skin is removed. Thighplasty (thigh lift) surgery is often combined with liposuction and tummy tuck to achieve holistic results. There may be a risk of scars after the procedure, but they can be easily concealed.

What Can A Thighplasty (Thigh Lift) Do For You?

Thighplasty (thigh lift) is a procedure suitable for those who have undergone their weight loss journey, or in the process of it. Thighs are often considered to be difficult when it comes to weight loss and weight management. With the thighplasty (thigh lift) procedure, your legs have a more defined and balanced appearance.

Are You An Ideal Candidate?

This procedure is ideal for men and women who are in good health, non-smokers, have realistic expectations and a relatively stable weight. It may not be suitable for the patients who have a tendency to bleed and have a history of not healing well after procedures.

Risks Associated With A Thighplasty (Thigh Lift) Surgery

It is important to have a consultation with your surgeon prior to the procedure and have realistic expectations about the surgery outcomes. As with the majority surgical procedures, thighplasty (thigh lift) surgery is relatively safe, but there are still potential risks, such as bleeding, infection, or allergic reactions.

Another potential risk is the emergence of blood clots which can lead to complications, and that’s why it is important for your surgeon to have a proper assessment of your individual situation and determine whether you’re the right candidate for this procedure. There may also be potential complications, such as the distortion of the genitalia’s appearance, especially in women, and the risk of scars after the procedure (the scars can be easily concealed and are not a threat to your health). Ensuring that you understand what thighplasty (thigh lift) surgery involves and the risks associated is key.
