Medial thigh lift
Skin laxity in the medial thigh is frequently the earliest sign of aging. It can also be caused by obesity, weight fluctuations and hereditary causes. If fitness and weight control efforts have not achieved your goals for a body that is firmer, more youthful-looking and more proportionate to your overall body image, a surgical lift may be right for you.
Thigh lift surgery reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin and fat, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body.
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 thigh lift along with liposuction may be recommended.
The surgical procedure takes about 2H.
It can be performed under general anaesthesia or sedation and local anaesthesia.
It can be performed on outpatient or inpatient basis (1 night).
There are different techniques with different scar patterns. Scar can be located in the groin, in the medial thigh or both.
All techniques have advantages and disadvantages that will be discussed with you during the preoperative evaluation.
- Acetaminophen or ibuprofen for routine pain control
- Usually used and will be removed after drainage reduction
- Usually this happens 2 to 3 days after surgery
- Light aerobic exercise or professional activity after 7 to 10 days
- Heavy lifting after 6 weeks
Complications and surgical risks
Medial thigh lift is considered a safe procedure. However, all surgeries have their own risks and complications. Some of the most frequent are:
- Wound healing complications
- Skin irregularities and depressions
- Unsatisfactory scarring, hypertrophic scar or keloid
- Recurrence of thigh ptosis
