Thigh Lift

A Thigh lift also known as ‘Thighplasty’, aims to reshape and tighten the thighs by removing excess skin, and in some cases fat, resulting in a smoother more contoured appearance of the upper thighs.

Major weight loss, pregnancy or aging can reduce the elasticity of the skin. Excess skin can be inconvenient both functionally and aesthetically and can cause irritation and discomfort, especially in warm weather conditions.

Medial Incision– Can result in more scarring than the Lateral and is the most common as that is where the majority of excess skin is.

Lateral Incision- Also known as an outer thigh lift has the incision along the groin so can easily be hidden along the underwear line. Often not performed

Liposuction – May also be used as in conjunction with a Thigh Lift procedure for fat removal on patients that have enough elasticity in their skin to shrink around the remaining tissues after the fat is removed. If the skin has poor elasticity, tissue sagging will be even more pronounced after fat is removed. Learn more about Liposuction.
