A thigh lift, also known as thighplasty, is a cosmetic procedure which achieves the tightening of the thighs
What is thigh lift treatment?
Am I a good candidate for thigh lift?
Typically, good candidates for a thigh lift are those with excess soft tissue in the outer or inner thigh region, whose weight is generally stable, and who have realistic goals in terms of what the procedure is able to achieve.
During the consultation, Mr Chummun will take a full medical history and assess if you are suitable for this type of surgery. He will discuss the type of surgery that is most appropriate for you and the risks that are involved.
During the surgery
Liposuction can also be used to improve the contour of the thighs.
These techniques use deep sutures inside underlying tissues which support new contours. Sutures and skin adhesive is then used to close the incisions. Results such as tighter contouring can be appreciated almost immediately following a thigh lift
Recovery from thigh lift
Following the procedure, bandages and dressings are applied to the areas where incisions have been made. Drains placed under the skin can be used temporarily in order to drain excess blood or fluid which can collect. You will need to wear your support garment to help with the recovery.
Before you return home the following day, you will be given instructions which cover how to care for the surgical sites and medications which can assist healing. It is important to follow these instructions in order for recovery to be successful.
Bruising and swelling will normally disappear entirely within a month. You may require taking 2 weeks following the surgery to fully recover from a thigh lift.
