Thigh Lift

Thigh lift surgery (thighplasty) is an invasive cosmetic procedure in which excess skin and fat are removed from the thigh area.

Probably the most common reason for a thigh lift is to reshape and smooth the thigh area after weight loss. Some people also opt for the procedure to gain more shape and feel more comfortable in swimsuits, shorts and jeans.

If you are considering this procedure after weight loss, doctors recommend that you maintain your weight consistently for at least 6 months and have already reached your ideal weight. This is because weight fluctuations can affect the results after thigh lift surgery.

Before thigh lift surgery, you will be instructed to stop taking medications that increase the tendency to bleed. These include aspirin, certain dietary supplements, and anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen. Your surgeon may also ask you to take a medical exam to make sure you are a good candidate for the surgery.

During the procedure, you will be put under general anesthesia. Your surgeon will make the appropriate incisions depending on the type of thigh lift you have chosen. He will then cut out excess skin and fat cells before closing the wounds with sutures.

On average, the entire procedure takes 2 hours. Since you will also need several hours to prepare for and follow up on the procedure, you should expect the entire procedure to take up most of your day. It is a good idea to have someone drive you to and from your surgery and stay with you overnight in case complications arise.

It is firmly recommended not to go for long walks after the thigh lift whereas the sutures can be loosen and opened because of pressure on feet.
