All About Thigh Lifts
Like other body contouring procedures, thigh lifts are used to remove excess and loose skin, as well as excess fat from around the upper thigh area. The skin is tightened, helping to reshape the thigh and decrease the signs of ageing or weight loss associated with sagging or excess skin.
We have worked hard to be able to offer an affordable price so patients do feel pressured to visit under qualified practices or destination surgery. Our thigh lift surgery includes surgeons fee, hospital fee, and general anaesthetic costs.

Thigh lifts involve an incision being made at the fold meeting between the thigh and groin areas. The procedure is generally performed under general anesthesia, however, at times it can be performed under local anesthesia.
Some procedures will see tissue being removed down the inside of the thigh toward the knee, with excess skin being removed with controlled tension.
The thigh lift then tightens the skin, pulling the skin inward and helping to improve the contouring of the thigh.
A vertical thigh lift is anl operation that removes large pieces of excess skin from the inner thigh. The scar from this procedure is located horizontally within the groin crease and also vertically from the groin to the knee joint. The length of the scar is dependent on the amount of excess skin.
What are the risks?
Thigh lift procedures, like all modern surgeries, may be accompanied with general discomfort, and pain and bleeding. Infection is rare, whilst bruising, swelling and feelings of tightness or numbness around the procedure site can be experienced with most body contouring procedures. This procedure may also cause asymmetry of scars on the legs, abnormal scarring, and fluid build-up/seroma formation.
If you are concerned about possible risks or complications that could occur with a thigh lift, be sure to discuss them with your surgeon.
