What Is A Thigh Lift?

liposuction outer thighsA thigh lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure which is designed to reshape the thigh and hip area by removing excess skin and fat deposits from the thighs and hips.

In the surgery, a the surgeon surgically removes excess thigh skin and fat and repositions the remaining skin and tissue to create a slimmer, firmer and more defined thigh.

The surgery to lift the thighs is often combined with other body lift surgeries such as liposuction and Brazilian butt lift to enhance the results. The operation usually takes around two to three hours to complete, depending on the extent of work required, how much excess skin you have, and whether any combined procedures are involved. Patients are usually discharged approximately three hours after the surgery.

Potential Risks and Complications

As with any other surgery, thigh tuck carries a few risks and complications. Mentioned below are some of the potential complications associated with the surgery:

  • Persistent pain and discomfort during the healing process following a thigh tuck
  • Although rare, but excessive bleeding can occur after this procedure
  • Substantial swelling that probably will last for several weeks
  • Bruising at the incision sites that can spread down the legs
  • Infection
  • Long visible scars
  • Possibility of scarring
  • Blood clots
  • Nerve damage
  • Fluid collection underneath the skin
  • Anaesthetic complications
  • Temporary or numbness around the thighs

The Recovery Period

These risks and complications can be reduced by carefully following the post-surgery advice of your surgeon. Make sure that you have someone to look after you at home for at least the first week following the surgery.

Start walking as soon as possible, but avoid strenuous activities like gym activities or heavy housework  as they may stress the incision sites.

Following a thigh tuck, light exercise is usually recommended as it can speed up the healing process and minimize the risk of developing blood clots. It may take you approximately four to six weeks to resume vigorous exercise. It is strongly recommended to wear the compression garment to help minimise bruising and swelling and smoothen the skin. Post-operative dressings are usually removed in two to three days. A visit to the surgeon will be needed for a wound evaluation.

If the above mentioned instructions are followed closely, the thigh lift results can last for many years.
