Thigh lift (thighplasty)

A thigh lift is a procedure that involves the removal of excess skin and fat from either the inner or outer thighs. This is often desirable after substantial or bariatric weight loss. Liposuction may be used as an adjunct to the recontouring of the inner thigh.

The procedure

In the procedure, the surgeon removes excess skin and underlying tissue. The thighs get a rejuvenated look and the sagging appearance is removed. The incision is made on the inner side of the thighs or in the inguinal (groin) area, excess skin and fat is removed. The surgery is done under general anaesthesia and takes 1-2 hours.


Immediately after the procedure, elastic garment is applied which is worn for 8 weeks. Hospital stay is recommended for 1-2 nights, followed by home recovery with no physical activity during the following week. You should refrain from physical load for the next 2 months. Ordinary work can be resumed within 2 weeks after surgery. The result is permanent.
