What does a thigh lift involve?
There are actually two different types of approaches that can be used and the technique chosen will be dependent upon the skin’s laxity. If the problem is that the rippling and laxity is limited to the upper part of the thigh, an upper thigh lift may be the preferred method. In this case a scar will be left in the groin area and will be well hidden.
If the rippling and laxity is present throughout the entire inner thigh, an extended thigh lift will be required. In this procedure another scar will be left vertically down the inside of the thigh which will not be as easy to camouflage.
What downtime can I expect after a thigh lift?
Both procedures are done under general anaesthetic and an overnight hospital stay is required. It is possible cellulite will also be reduced after a thigh lift procedure. While it isn’t used for the back or front of the thighs, it can be performed on either the inner (most common) or outer thigh.
During your consultation, Mr Paul Tulley will fully explain what will happen both during and after your procedure and what results you can expect.
