Thigh lift surgery or thighplasty is a type of cosmetic procedure which can effectively tighten the skin around the thighs area, thus reducing any sagging in the inner and outer thighs regions. Thighplasty surgery is usually performed on patients that have lost a considerable amount of weight, but it can also be performed on individuals that simply have excess fat and skin tissue around the thighs.
There are two main types of thigh lift surgery:
● Inner thigh surgery or inner thighplasty
● Outer thigh surgery or outer thighplasty
Patients who have body lift surgery, also have an outer thigh lift procedure performed as part of the body lift procedure. The inner thigh lift is usually performed as a single procedure. Patients often combine outer thigh lift surgery with tummy tuck or abdominoplasty. This is called an extended tummy tuck procedure.
Thigh lift surgery or thighplasty is recommended for patients who have lost a substantial amount of weight either through bariatric surgery or exercise. These patients are usually left with a large amount of saggy tissue around the thighs area. Some patients may have sagging skin around the thighs even without any weight loss, it can simply be due to genetics.
Severely obese individuals are not good candidates for thigh lift surgery. Thighplasty patients need to be in a good state of health and a stable weight before going in for surgery. Patients suffering from diabetes, lung disease or heart disease may not be good candidates for thigh lift surgery or thighplasty. Individuals wanting this surgery also need to have a clear understanding of the procedure and what it can achieve.
Patients must avoid smoking for at least 2 weeks before the thighplasty surgery. Herbal teas, multivitamins and blood thinners such as aspirin also need to be avoided for two weeks before the thighplasty surgery. It’s a good idea for patients to have a physical examination from their GP before travelling abroad for thigh lift surgery.
Thigh lift surgery can be performed while the patient is under general anaesthesia or IV anaesthesia. The incision areas are shaved and cleaned with betadine. Once the anaesthesia kicks in, the surgeon can begin making the necessary incisions.
There are two main types of thigh lift surgery:
● Inner thigh lift surgery – the incision is made in the groin crease
● Outer thigh lift surgery – the incision is made horizontally, just under the hip bone
After the proper incisions are created, the surgeon will proceed to eliminate any excess skin and fat tissue from the thighs area. Once the desired result is achieved, the incisions are closed up with dissolving stitches and the area is wrapped in bandages in order to avoid any potential infection in the thigh area. The thigh lift recovery period can begin.
Patient may spend 1 or 2 nights in the hospital
1 to 2 hours
1 to 2 weeks
3 - 4 weeks
The average thigh lift recovery period lasts around 5 weeks. Patients need to avoid any type of movement during the first week of the thigh lift recovery period. Compression garments need to be worn during the first 2 weeks after thighplasty surgery. Patients also need to avoid sitting for the first 2 weeks after the procedure and driving for at least 3 weeks. Patients can usually return to work in around 3-4 weeks, but physical activity and sitting needs to be kept at a minimum, as it can lead to complications.
Thigh lift surgery risks and complications can include:

Thigh lift reviews set the average success rate at 91%.
The swelling will greatly reduce during the first 2 weeks after surgery. Results will slowly start to become visible from the second week onward but it’s important that patients maintain their weight after the procedure. Just because the fatty tissue has been removed, it doesn’t mean that it can’t grow back. A healthy diet and exercise can help patients maintain their newfound look.
