Firmer thighs through thigh lift surgery

Beautiful, firm thighs are an important part of our appearance.

With increasing age or after a heavy weight loss, the skin of the inner thighs in particular loses elasticity, which can lead to a general sagging of the skin on the thighs.

Often the only remedy is a thigh lift. During this surgical procedure, the excess skin tissue is removed so that the thighs become firmer and slimmer.

Thigh lift at a glance

  • Hospital stay: 1 night as an in-patient
  • Anaesthesia: general anaesthesia
  • Aftercare: compression garments (6 weeks), no stitches as the suture material is absorbable
  • Pain: medium
  • Durability: permanent
  • Ready to socialise: 1 to 2 weeks

For whom is a thigh lift recommended?

  • Patients with excess and sagging skin on the inner and/or outer thighs
  • Patients with sagging thigh tissue and undefined lower buttock fold (indirect buttock lift)
  • Patients with a fat distribution disorder and massive fat deposits on the thighs in which case a liposuction without a thigh lift would leave excess skin tissue behind
  • Patients who have had liposuction without a simultaneous thigh lift performed, which has now left the tissue sagging

About Thigh Lift Surgery

General information

A thigh lift is a very common plastic surgery operation and is performed under general anaesthesia. The technique or incision used depends on the extent and the skin to be removed, and therefore varies from patient to patient. Part of the thigh lift is always liposuction of the front and back of the thighs to reduce volume. The incisions are usually made in such a way that the scars resulting from the thigh lift can easily be hidden by a bikini or underwear. Depending on your skin type, they may fade completely after three to six months.

After the procedure, you should be monitored for one day as an in-patient and then wear compression garments for about six weeks. After a thigh lift you will be fully fit for social life again after one to two weeks. Thanks to absorbable suture material, the removal of the stitches is unnecessary.

We routinely perform thigh lifts over 100 times a year and help you quickly, discreetly and with great sensitivity.
