Thigh lift surgery

During a thigh lift, we remove sagging skin and excess fat from the areas of your thighs to make your legs look firm, youthful and contoured again!


Thight, well-defined thighs with plastic surgery

As a side effect of aging or major weight loss, the skin in the thigh area loses elasticity, causing disturbing sagging. The unpleasant side effect of having saggy thighs can also be that the inner thighs constantly rub against each other, causing a lot of discomfort, pain from the rashes and difficulty with clothings, causing a negative effect on the quality of life.

But with a thigh lift, you can have youthful, firm thighs again! Invasive surgery safely and permanently removes sagging skin and excess fat, leaving your thighs much leaner and more defined.

Are you looking for smooth and firm thighs again? A thigh lift can help you permanently get rid of sagging skin! Book a consultation with our plastic surgeon to know more about your options and about the procedure!

Restores the youthful contours and firmness

A thigh lift completely transforms the shape of the legs. However, it is important that you only choose a thigh lift if you feel your current weight is stable and it is something that you can keep, and you do not plan to gain or lose weight in the future.

Thanks to thigh lift surgery:

  • sagging skin on the thighs disappears,
  • the shape and size of the thighs will improve,
  • legs become firm, toned and youthful,
  • the thighs become more in proportion with the overall figure of the body,
  • the appearance of rashes and skin irritations on the thighs will disappear,
  • the reduction of cellulite in the thigh area.

Thigh lift to eliminate sagging skin

During a thigh lift, different surgical techniques are used depending on the purpose and extent of the procedure, but the aim is always to remove excess skin and fat.

Depending on the size of the affected area and the amount of excess skin, incisions can vary in size and extent on the thighs. However, in all cases, we aim to keep the surgical scars as hidden from the eyesight as much as possible.

Classic thigh lift

Classic thigh lift

Covering a larger area, we work on the upper part of the sagging inner thighs, making a T or L-shaped incision from the groin extending downward and wrapping around the back of the thigh. 

Mini thigh lift

We work on a smaller area, making incisions extending from the groin around the hip and sometimes across the back which allows the incisions to be hidden by most types of clothing and swimsuits.

The first step in the process of a thigh lift is a consultation with our plastic surgeon to discuss your specific problems and individual goals, surgical options, the procedure and aftercare. We will then create your individual treatment plan. Your surgery will be preceded by a full check-up: you will also have laboratory tests and an ECG.

The thigh lift takes 2-3 hours and is performed under general anesthesia. The plastic surgeon will make incisions according to the chosen surgical approach. We then remove excess skin and remove unwanted fat using liposuction. This tightens and smoothes the skin, resulting in contoured legs.

At the end of the operation, drain tubes are inserted to prevent any build-up of blood or fluid. Finally, absorbable sutures are used to close the wound and compression garments are put on the legs.

After the procedure you will spend 1-2 nights in the clinic, after which you will be discharged home with an accompanying adult.

Frequently Asked Questions

Plastic surgery on the thighs is recommended if

  • you are not satisfied with the shape and size of your thighs,
  • you have significant excess skin on your thighs,
  • you have loose skin on the inner thighs due to weight loss.

We usually recommend a thigh lift over the age of 40, because before that age, in many cases, thigh rejuvenation and tightening can be achieved by using only liposuction.

The effects of the surgery are almost immediately obvious on the thighs, but the full results are only achieved after 6-12 months.

A thigh lift will result in long-term and permanent changes to the thighs, but it is important to maintain a stable weight. Any further weight gain or weight loss can cause the skin to stretch and sag.

You should stop smoking and using nicotine-containing products in the previous weeks before treatment, as nicotine slows down the healing process. A few days before the operation, you should stop taking blood thinner medications, vitamin C, selenium, zinc, ginkgo biloba and herbal supplements. You should also make sure you drink enough water, on the other hand alcohol consumption is not recommended.

After the operation, you may experience numbness, swelling, bleeding and pain for 1-2 days. Immediately after the procedure, you will be given a compression garment to wear for at least 3-6 weeks. The drain tubes inserted at the very end of the operation will be removed after 1-2 days. You can usually return to work after 2-4 weeks. 

  • You will need plenty of rest and plenty of water intake in the following week after your thigh lift.
  • For the first 2 to 4 weeks after surgery, avoid sports, intense physical activity, long walks and straining and stretching your legs. 
  • After 6 weeks, light exercise is allowed.
  • No solarium, sauna or sunbathing for 2 months.
  • Smoking and drinking alcohol should be avoided for a few weeks.
