Thigh Lift

What is a Thigh Lift? 

A thigh lift is the surgical procedure of removing the excess skin that hangs in the thigh area to benefit the overall shape and appereance. Sometimes, liposuction is performed for the best proportioned look to the rest of the lower body. Thigh lift surgery is very common as an after weight loss surgery. Excess skin in the thighs can irritate while excercising and provide a very uncomfortable appereance. If skin elasticity is not good; perhaps simply performing liposuction in the area(s) would be the recommendation.
How thigh lift surgery is performed at Family Hospital ?  

 We will discuss with you the options of performing your thigh lift through intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. During your consultation, your surgeon will draw on you as your thigh lift surgery will depend strickly on your particular situation. There are several techniques that can be used such as having your incision through your groin area extending downwards around the backside of your thighs.  The excess skin will be removed and the underlying tissue will be tightened. There is a possibility that you may qualify for minimal invasive thigh lift surgery. When performing minimal invasive thigh lift surgery the only areas where an incision will be performed in would be in your groin area hence a smaller scar/incision.  The key here is to make sure we provide the best results possible for your particular situation regardless of the time needed in the operating room. Your surgery could take several hours. After your surgery, you will rest in the recovery room followed by your private hospital room. Thigh lifts do tend to be a little more maintance than other cosmetic procedures, so it's important to follow the after surgery instructions as indicated by your surgeon. 


 Example of a Medical Travel Trip for Thigh Lift surgery

Day 1-           
Pick up at US airport. Transportation provided to Family Hospital for pre-op tests and consultation with surgeon. Rest in hospital

Day 2-   Surgery, Rest in Hospital 
Day 3-   Eligable to go to Hotel once doctor approves

Day 3- 12  Depending on the kind of incision,  you might need to stay for 12 nights in the area, this will be determined after you send pictures.   It's important to be very careful post-surgery as  thigh lift surgeries tend to be more laborish than other cosmetic surgeries. Complications can be anything from an incision opening to an infection. We will monitor closely the recovery of the patient.
