For many people, the achievement of losing weight can be overshadowed by the excess skin that can be left behind. Due to weight gain, pregnancy, stretch marks and natural growth of the body, skin can struggle to return to original form, leaving folds on the thighs and knees. A thigh lift pulls the skin up to create a more toned and sculpted look.
During the thigh lift, the surgeon makes an incision around the upper part of the thigh, near the groin. The skin is then lifted and the tissues underneath tightened with the excess skin and fat removed. The skin is then repositioned to create a tighter and firmer appearance. Patients must remain in our clinic overnight to recover and return to their home with compression bandages to ensure healing.
