Thigh Reduction

Thigh Lift

What is thigh reduction or lift?

This is an operation that is used to remove excess skin and fat in the inner aspects of the thigh giving a more toned and sculptured appearance.

Who requests a thigh reduction?

People who have lost a lot of weight and have excess skin on the thighs. People who are carrying excessive fat in this area so that the sides rub on each other uncomfortably during daily activities. After this procedure underwear is no longer uncomfortable and skin discolouration and fungal infections will be a thing of the past.

Did you know!

For appropriate cases, there is a minimal access thigh lift or reduction which is a combination of liposuction and excision of skin in the groin leaving a hidden scar in the groin.

What type of anaesthetic is used?

This is usually performed under general anaesthetic.

How long is the hospital stay?

This is usually a day or two.

How long will I be off work?

Usually three to four weeks

How long does the operation last?

About two hours. This may vary depending on the size of the patient.

How is the operation performed?

The amount of skin and fat to be excised is usually planned pre-operatively in such a way that the scar lies on the inner aspect of the thighs.

The excess skin and fat is then removed.

The incisions can leave either a hidden horizontal scar in the groin or more commonly a ‘T’-shaped scar (with the horizontal part of the ‘T’ in the groin).
