Thigh Lifting

By thigh lift surgery, we generate a solution for leg sagging and help you feel younger and more dynamic.

What is a Thigh Lift?

A thigh lift, also known as thighplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure specifically designed to address excess, saggy skin in the thigh region. This condition often occurs after significant weight loss. The primary goal of the procedure is to excise the droopy skin and unnecessary fat tissue, resulting in enhanced natural contours of the thighs. In many cases, a thigh lift procedure is performed in combination with liposuction. Liposuction helps to remove stubborn fat deposits that may be difficult to eliminate solely through a surgical incision. By combining these two procedures, patients can achieve superior results, as it provides a comprehensive solution to reshape and refine the contour of the thigh region.

What happens during the procedure?

Before the thigh lift procedure, your surgeon will carefully mark the incision lines while you're standing. This helps guide their efforts in positioning the sagging skin at the most optimal angles. To ensure your comfort during the surgery, an anesthesiologist will administer anesthesia, putting you to sleep so you won't feel any pain. Once you're under anesthesia, your surgeon will begin by making an incision in your groin area. The specific type of thigh lift you're considering will determine the extent of the incision. It may extend around the back of your thigh, down towards your knee, or even around your hip and back. Once the incisions are made, your surgeon will proceed to remove excess fat, reposition tissue, and tighten nearby muscles. This process helps to create a more sculpted and toned appearance. Additionally, any excess skin will be carefully trimmed away to further enhance the results. To ensure the newly contoured thighs maintain their shape and support, stitches (sutures) are used to secure the tissue deep within your thigh. This step is crucial for achieving long-lasting and satisfactory outcomes. Finally, before completing the procedure, your surgeon will use stitches, clips, or a special skin adhesive to close the incisions. This helps promote proper healing and minimizes the appearance of scars.

Who is a good candidate for the procedure?

To determine if you're a candidate for a thigh lift, a surgeon will assess your general health and medical history. They will consider factors such as not smoking, well-managed underlying medical conditions, and stable weight for at least a year. It's important to consult with a surgeon who can evaluate your specific situation and provide personalized recommendations.

Post op care

• Dressings: You'll have a compression garment to reduce swelling and dissolvable sutures that don't need to be removed.
• Showering: Wait 2-3 days before showering. Keep the paper tapes over your incisions in place. Gently wash the suture area, but don't tub bathe until all incisions have healed.
• Support garments: Wear them for 4-6 weeks, adjusting as needed. They should be snug but not uncomfortable.
• Shaving: Be careful when shaving around the incisions due to puckering and numbness.
• Sun exposure: Avoid exposing new incisions to sunlight as they can easily burn for up to a year. Use sunscreen on healed incisions.
• Exercise: Start light exercises like walking when comfortable, but avoid strenuous activities. Gradually increase activity after 2-3 weeks.
• Work: Return to work approximately 7-10 days after surgery, but timing may vary depending on the job type.

Book a free consultation with one of our expert advisors at American Aesthetic today, in order to assess your BMI so that we make sure that the procedure is appropriate for you. As there are medical and physical limitations as to how much fat can be safely removed, the procedure may not be suitable for those who are overweight. The procedure itself is best suited for body sculpting as opposed to weight loss.

People who get a thigh lift with us often have some of the following procedures done too:

Eye Brow Lift

The ageing process often results in a decrease in the distance between your eyebrows and eyelashes, and this lower position often makes people look tired, sad or angry. By making an incision in the scalp our surgeons will be able to get rid of any excess skin and lift your brow giving you a happier and fresher appearance.

Cosmetic Ear Surgery (Otoplasty)

This type of surgery aims to change the shape, position and the size of the ears is often used to treat overly large or protuding ears as well as ears that have deformities. The surgical procedure used will depend on the needs of the patient.


As we age, lose weight or after we give birth, we may find certain pockets of fat are harder to remove than others through exercise and diet alone. Liposuction can help remove this fat by extracting it with a very strong vacuum. Outside of traditional liposuction, we also provide vaser liposuction which uses ultrasonic waves first to breakdown fat cells before extracting them. This often leads to less damage being done to the remaining tissue and thus enabling a quicker recovery time. Liposuction is a procedure which can be performed on all body parts.

Gynecomastia surgery (go to general)

Occassionally, men may develop breasts. This may happen for a wide variety of reasons ranging from hormonal imbalances to an unhealthy diet and lack of exercise. Whatever the reason is, this can often end up in low self esteem and confidence. As there are a number of reasons why this happens, your operation may involve the removal of some tissue or just some liposuction.


Crowns, which are also sometimes called caps, are carefully fitted sleeves that sit over an existing tooth in order to protect it from further damage or to improve your smile. Often applied as part of a root canal treatment, they can also hold together teeth that are cracked and support bridges. Not only this, they can also be used to cover and improve the look of teeth that have become discolored.
