Intro to Thighplasty

Stop complaining about looseness and skin laxity in your thighs! The solution is now within your reach and is called “thighplasty”. This underrated surgery can grant you a thinner, better-proportioned upper leg. Women increasingly choose this procedure to say farewell to sagging skin in the thighs.
Thighplasty or thigh lift is a cosmetic surgery that reshapes and raises your thighs to bring a more desirable appearance. Obviously, this is the right solution for excess, sagging skin caused by aging, pregnancy, or significant weight loss. Your plastic surgeon can recommend an inner thigh lift, medial thigh lift, or bilateral thigh lift, depending on your goals and needs.

    Preparation for Thighplasty

    First of all, you need to find an experienced surgeon or contact a well-known clinic to schedule an initial consultation. During this consultation, your surgeon will evaluate your health, examine your thighs, and ask you about any previous thigh injuries or surgeries you’ve had. Also, your surgeon may prepare you for thighplasty (thigh lift) by doing or suggesting the following:
    • Discuss your expectations and talk about other options, such as liposuction.
    • Determine the length and location of the incision and the resulting scar.
    • Avoid certain medications or modify their doses.
    • Tell you about what you can eat or drink the night before surgery.
    • Quit smoking.

    Steps of Thighplasty

    Most likely, you will undergo thighplasty (thigh lift) in an outpatient facility, but if the surgery is more complex, your surgeon may suggest having the surgery in a hospital. In short, the procedure may take 2 to 3 hours and may include steps such as:

    1. Anesthesia

    Your surgeon may give you general or epidural anesthesia to prevent unwanted pain.

    2. Incisions Making

    The incision pattern varies depending on the type of thigh lift and the targeted area. Your surgeon may choose to make an incision in the groin region.

    3. Skin & Fat Removal

    Next, your surgeon will start removing skin and fat and reshaping underlying tissues. Besides, they will smooth and lift the skin to improve the overall appearance of your thighs.

    4. Incision Closure

    Finally, your surgeon will close the incision with stitches.

    Recovery After Thighplasty

    The recovery phase after thighplasty (thigh lift) may involve the following:
    • Expect bruising, swelling, and mild pain after the surgery; thus, your surgeon may prescribe pain relievers and anti-inflammatory drugs.
    • You may need to wear compression garments to reduce swelling and improve recovery.
    • Your surgeon may attach drain tubes to the surgical site to collect fluid and decrease infection risk, but these tubes will eventually be removed.
    • Avoid swimming and hot tubs until your surgeon gives you permission. Showering is permitted after 2 days following the surgery.
    • Your surgeon will remove the surgical sutures within two weeks.
    • Expect to see some scars, but they usually dissolve with time.
    • You can return to work within 7 to 10 days, and you can resume exercise within 4 to 6 weeks.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Thighplasty, like any other surgery, carries some complications and potential risks, but it is a safe process that has been investigated by many studies, which have proven its effectiveness and encouraging results, especially when it is performed by an expert surgeon and for the right indication.

    – Anesthesia-related complications. Hematoma (a collection of fluid or blood under the skin)
    – Bleeding
    – Infection
    – Scarring
    – Allergic reactions
    – Loss of skin elasticity
    – Numbness or tingling
    – Deep venous thrombosis.
    – Cardiac or pulmonary complications
    The potential risks and complications can be minimized if you stick to the advice and recommendations of the surgeon.

    The initial results appear immediately after the surgery, and the final results will appear several months later.
    In a few cases, the desired results cannot be achieved after a single surgical procedure, so additional surgery may become necessary.

    If general anesthesia is used during the surgery, you may need to stay in the hospital for the next day to allow the medical team to monitor your condition and track any complications related to anesthesia or surgery. In case local anesthesia is used, it is possible to go home after a short period.

    The period varies from person to person, but in most cases, you should wait 7-14 days to resume your normal daily activities. You should avoid tiring exercises and jogging during the recovery period.
