Thigh lift or thigh reduction is a highly effective procedure to tighten loose skin on the face and can be carried out for several reasons. Many people may find they are genetically predisposed to developing saggy skin on the thighs which can be a significant cause for concern. People who have lost significant amounts of weight often develop loose skin in many parts of the body and the thighs are a common area for excess skin to develop after weight loss. The natural ageing process affects us all and results in a loss of collagen and elastin over time. This causes the skin to lose its inherent firmness and often results in skin that looks saggy and at times flabby. Whatever the underlying cause of excess sagging skin, a surgical thigh lift is a highly effective procedure of thigh reduction to achieve firmer, smoother and tighter-looking thighs.

It is not uncommon to see many clinics particularly overseas in Turkey promote a lower thigh lift cost UK although it is important to bear in mind what level of care you will be receiving. For such cheap prices advertised elsewhere, inevitably certain aspects of your care will be compromised. The surgeon may not have the skills to carry out the thigh reduction surgery to a high standard or the clinic may lack specialist accreditations. With such potential for a poor standard of care, many patients may need to have corrective surgery performed elsewhere to address the substandard results. Common examples of botched surgery after a thigh lift include legs that lack symmetry or an excessive degree of scarring. In some cases, there has been such an extensive loss of skin that reconstructive surgery will be required to perform skin grafting or skin flaps to restore an acceptable appearance to the thighs.
Thigh fat removal surgery cost in London
Thigh fat removal surgery cost is commonly enquired about by many patients when deciding on their choice of cosmetic surgeon and clinic. Whilst thigh lift cost is important to consider, we recommend it should not be the only factor you base your decision on. You should also consider the qualifications and experience of the surgeon as well as the profile of the clinic. London thigh lift prices tend to be slightly higher than the rest of the UK due to the higher cost of living in the capital. The emotional strain from living with fat thighs that have a severe amount of skin sagging is often enough for patients to take that first step to explore the full range of surgical options to achieve slimmer-looking thighs. Patients often tell us the boost in self-confidence achieved from thigh lift surgery often leads them to wonder why they did not have the surgery earlier.
Although the price of thigh lift surgery may appear expensive it is important to take a holistic view as to what is included as part of the procedure. This includes your preoperative and postoperative care. The thigh lift procedure takes approximately 2 to 3 hours to perform and involves a general anaesthetic for your complete comfort. The incision for a thigh lift is made in the groin and extends down the inner thigh in a boomerang shape often as far as the knee. Any excess skin is surgically removed before the skin is carefully closed to result in the least possible amount of scarring. Your surgeon will also take care to position the incisions so that they are on the inside of the leg which makes them less visible to others. We are renowned for our proactive post-operative nursing care support with our specialist nurses available 24/7 to answer any questions or concerns you may have. You will be reviewed regularly in the 2 weeks after your procedure for regular wound checks as well as being available to see you at any time if you are concerned about your thigh lift healing. Once you are fully healed at approximately four weeks, our nurses may suggest optimum scar management strategies to improve the appearance of your thigh lift scars.
Why inner thigh lift surgery costs more compared with outer thigh lift costs?
Inner thigh lift surgery cost UK generally costs more than an outer thigh lift due to the larger amount of excess skin removal needed in the inner thigh area. An outer thigh lift is commonly combined with buttock lift surgery but may also be carried out on its own. When people refer to a thigh lift, they are most commonly describing the loose inner thigh skin which would require an inner thigh lift. The incision for inner thigh lift surgery extends from the groin down the inside of the thigh as far as the knee. A mini thigh lift involves a small incision located in the groin region only to tighten upper thigh skin. An outer thigh lift is designed to remove excess skin from the outer parts of the thighs.
Inner thigh lift surgery is commonly combined with liposuction and this may increase the price of the surgery. Thigh liposuction is designed to get rid of excess thigh fat with the removal of stubborn areas of fat that have proven resistant to diet and exercise.
How much is thigh liposuction?
