THIGH LIFT

Looking to get your beach body back? Get slimmer, tighter thighs at Cosmetrix

Procedure Name :  

  • Thigh Lift Whole/Vertical
  • Thigh Lift Upper / Inner

If you want to reduce the flabby appearance of your upper leg area, you may want to consider a thigh lift. This popular procedure will help you achieve a body that is firmer, more youthful-looking and more proportionate to your overall body image, by removing excess fat and skin in the inner and outer thigh areas.

 

Who is it for?

Thigh lifts are suitable for men and women who are looking to get a tighter, more contoured appearance in either their medial (inner) thigh skin or outer (lateral) thigh areas. If fitness and weight loss efforts have not helped achieved your goals, a surgical thigh lift may be right for you. It also helps to decrease chafing and rashes caused by excess skin in the thigh areas. To have this procedure, you must be in good health and at a stable weight.

What to expect?

In preparing for thigh lift surgery, you may be asked to:

  • Get lab testing or a medical evaluation
  • Take certain medications or adjust your current medications
  • Eat a balanced diet
  • Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements, as they can increase bleeding

This surgery takes around two to three hours. It is a day surgery that is generally performed under general anesthesia, so you’ll be asleep during the operation. A medial thigh lift tightens the skin in the inner thigh area, while a lateral thigh lift tightens the skin in the front and outer thigh areas. You generally won’t have to stay overnight in the hospital following this procedure, though one night’s stay may be needed in some cases.

How long will it take you to recover?

It will take at least two weeks to recover from this procedure.  You’ll have to severely limit strenuous exercise for several months, and may need to take a week or two off work to recover. Your doctor will advise you on this based on your personal situation, as you go through the healing process.

Common side effects

After a thigh lift, you may experience some common side effects that can persist for a few weeks or even months. In the days following surgery, some swelling and bruising are likely to occur. The risk of other, more severe complications is minimal and rare, but increases if you have poor circulation, diabetes, heart, lung, or liver disease.

The new you…

The tighter skin and more defined lines in your upper leg will give you a trimmer appearance and help ease mobility issues almost immediately, though the full effects of the procedure will not be achieved for up to six weeks. Keeping fit and maintaining a healthy diet will help you to achieve the most benefit from your thigh lift and keep your new shape forever.
