The success and safety of Thigh Lift depend very much on your complete honesty on your booking form and candidness during your consultation in Phuket before surgery. You’ll be asked a number of questions about your health, desires and lifestyle.
A thigh lift or thigh reduction is a cosmetic surgery procedure done to tighten sagging muscles and remove excess skin in the thigh area.
Many women and men are concerned about the size and shape of their thighs. The classic English ‘pear shape’ means that lots of women store fat in this area and find it difficult to shift with diet and exercise alone.
Thigh reduction surgery can greatly improve the body contour and give you a renewed sense of confidence. Thigh lift cosmetic surgery can be performed in conjunction with other procedures such as liposuction, lower body lift and a thigh and buttock lift
Thigh lifts are not intended strictly for the removal of excess fat. Liposuction alone can remove excess fat deposits where skin has good elasticity and is able to naturally conform to new body contours. In cases where skin elasticity is poor, a combination of liposuction and thigh lift techniques may be recommended.
There are several thigh lift procedures that may be used, depending on the amount of correction needed in specific areas of the thighs. Dr. Levine has extensive experience and expertise in the full range of thigh lift surgery options. He will assess your condition and recommend the procedure that would best suit your particular needs. The most common thigh lift procedures are:
- Medial thigh lift can address moderate excess skin on the upper inner thighs.
- Lateral thigh lift This is a more complex procedure, usually involving recontouring of the buttocks as well as the outer thighs and removal of more tissue. Scarring is more extensive, and the skin will be less elastic after the surgery, so weight should be maintained.
Our Surgeons in Thailand
are highly specialised in performing thigh lift surgery with nearly invisible scaring. Their careful techniques allow them to place thigh lift incisions primarily within the swimsuit zone for optimal results.
The location and extent of the incision that are made will vary from patient to patient and the area of the thigh that is being treated. Thigh Lift Plastic Surgery is a very customisable surgical procedure, and all options will be discussed during your consultation. In most thigh lift surgeries, the surgeon places the incisions in the groin region that extend down the inner thighs. Sometimes minimal incisions are all that is needed in the groin crease.
In all cases, the tissues will be reshaped, re-sculpted, tightened, and the excess skin will be surgically removed. Your Thailand Surgeon makes every effort to be as minimally invasive as possible to minimise scarring.
Please do understand that Thigh Lift surgery does leave scars.
After Thigh Lift Surgery in Thailand at Phuket International Hospital, you will experience swelling and bruising – this is normal. The swelling after the surgery that you will experience may last that for a few weeks.
Your surgeon will ask you to wear a compression garment for a few weeks to help minimise swelling and speed recovery – it is seriously advisable that you heed the plastic surgeon’s request in wearing the garment.
Depending on your case, you may have small drainage tubes that will be inserted at the incision sites to drain excess fluids that would be removed a few days after your thigh lift surgery – there is no pain associated with drainage tubes and the need for drainage tubes will vary from case to case.
The average recovery time is between 4-6 weeks, but can vary depending on the individual & the surgical plan. During the first two weeks, however, it’s important to move slowly and avoid pulling any incisions because open wounds in the thigh region can take a long time to heal.
