Thigh Lift


A thigh lift refers to a variety of operations that remove skin and fat from the upper leg (thigh) area in order to improve contours by removing bulk and or loose soft tissues. The main indication for this procedure is after massive weight loss [diet induced or post weight loss surgery]


2 to 4.5 hours depending on the amount of tissue to be removed.

Possible Side Effects:

Most common is wound breakdown at the intersection of suture lines in the groin because of excessive stretch of the tight closure caused by patient movement. The other side effect is chance of seroma formation due to lymph leak. Widened scars can occur because of tension in these areas as well.


Similar to risks associated with any surgery, including infection, hematoma and fluid collection. Pulmonary embolism is a remote possibility.


Requires 3-4 weeks of restricted movement: no spreading of the legs or excessive flexion.


This type of surgery is generally well tolerated and appreciated by patients.
