What is a Thigh Lift?

Also known as thighplasty, a thigh lift is a procedure that involves the removal of excess skin and fat from either the inner or outer thighs. This is often desirable after substantial or bariatric weight loss or in individuals for whom dieting and exercise have failed to reduce excess tissue in their upper thighs. Liposuction may be used as an adjunct to the recontouring of the inner thigh. If you are committed to maintaining a healthy lifestyle and a moderate weight, a thigh lift can help you regain the youthful thigh contours you desire.

When to Consider A Thigh Lift:

  • If you want your thighs to have a better, more proportional contour and a firmer look and feel.

  • If you have undergone bariatric surgery or massive weight loss.

  • If you are distressed about loose, flabby skin on your thighs.

  • If you have difficulty fitting into clothing because of heavy thighs.

Am I Good Candidate

After losing a significant amount of weight and embarking on a program of vigorous exercise, you may find that you still have loose, hanging skin on your thighs. Although you can improve your thigh appearance with exercise, this redundant thigh skin remains a problem that does not improve with exercise.

The following are some common reasons why you may want to consider a thigh lift:

  • The effects of aging have led to sagging, cellulite and loose skin on your thighs.

  • You have succeeded in a weight reduction program and you now desire shapely thighs that reflect your more proportional, toned figure.

  • Clothes do not fit properly because of your heavy thighs.

  • Your thighs make you feel self-conscious and you want to restore your self-assurance regarding your body.

If you are in good general health, have a positive attitude and realistic expectations, you are most likely a good candidate for this procedure.

Procedure Details

A Medial Thigh Lift is performed under general anesthesia. You will be marked before surgery and given a chance to ask any questions. The procedure takes approximately two hours but may be more or less, depending on the amount of excess skin and incisions used.

There are two incision options that vary depending on the area or areas to be treated, degree of correction and patient and doctor preference. These options and the appropriate treatment plan will be discussed, demonstrated and determined at your consultation. The most common technique used for a Medial Thigh Lift places incisions in the groin (the crease in the upper part of the leg where it meets the pubic bone), extending downward wrapping around toward the back of the thigh. The skin and fat are elevated and separated from the underlying muscle. The skin is redraped and pulled over the initial incision to determine the amount of excess to remove in order to provide the best shape and contour. The excess skin is then removed. Closure is done in a meticulous fashion to minimize scarring.

If there is a large amount of skin or the excess skin and fat extend down close to the knee, a longitudal incision down the medial aspect of the upper leg may be required to achieve the optimal results. As in the groin incision, skin and fat are elevated and separated from the underlying muscle and the excess skin and fat are re-draped and the excess removed. Dressings will then be placed. Drains may or may not be used.

Your Recovery + After Care

Immediately after your thigh lift

Although your new smooth contours will be visible immediately after surgery, there will be a period of bruising, swelling and soreness.

Recovery time frame after a thigh lift

It is vitally important that you follow all patient care instructions provided by your surgeon. This will include information about wearing compression garments, care of your drains, taking an antibiotic if prescribed, and the level and type of activity that is safe. Your surgeon will also provide detailed instructions about the normal symptoms you will experience and any potential signs of complications. It is important to realize that the amount of time it takes for recovery varies greatly among individuals.

The first two weeks

  • During the first ten to 14 days you should only engage in very light activities, you must not walk around too much and rest with your legs up.

  • The pull of gravity and the actions of walking, sitting, and bending put stress on the sutured areas, so you should make careful and deliberate movements.

  • It will be helpful if you have someone staying with you, or join an Escorted Group, for the first part of your recovery.

Weeks two to eight

  • You will need to wear a compression garment for the first three months to optimize contouring of the thighs.

  • Swelling should subside in three to five weeks.

  • You may resume driving and light walking for exercise after three weeks, when these activities do not cause pain.

  • Avoid heavy lifting and jogging for a minimum of 12 weeks.

Types of Thigh Lifts

A Medial Thigh Lift is performed under general anesthesia. You will be marked before surgery and given a chance to ask any questions. The procedure takes approximately two hours but may be more or less, depending on the amount of excess skin and incisions used.

Groin incision (upper leg)

Incision patterns are varied based on the area(s) to be treated and the degree of correction as per the surgeons preference.

  • This procedure reshapes the upper inner thighs by removing the excess skin and fat.
  • The skin is tightened.
  • The contour of your thigh will be greatly improved.

Vertical (inner leg) incision

Saggy skin and fat are removed via an incision that starts at the fold of the groin and thigh and extend to the inner part towards the knee.

  • Ideal for patients with excess skin down towards the knees.
  • If necessary, liposuction may be needed.
  • The remaining skin is pulled across the incision and stitched shut.

Vertical and groin incision

This is a combination of the the Vertical and the Groin Incision Procedures

  • Skin and fat are elevated and separated from the underlying muscle
  • Excess skin and fat are re-draped and the excess removed
  • Drains may or may not be used

Buttocks Lift Also called a gluteal lift

This procedure is performed to improve the appearance of your buttocks.

  • Excess skin and fat are removed
  • The remaining skin is repositioned to create a more toned look
  • A buttocks lift alone won’t add volume to your buttocks.
  • The procedure is done via an incision that is placed along the lower back and extending from one hip to the other

Once you arrive in Thailand

Once you arrive in Thailand, grab your bags, and you will be greeted by one of our coordinators who will take you to your driver. You will always arrive the day before your procedure, so you will go to your hotel - where you can relax and enjoy your luxurious surroundings! You will be picked up from your hotel the next day and head to the hospital to meet your surgeon. You will have your consultation with your surgeon.

Pre-existing Health Conditions

If you have pre-existing health conditions, your surgeon will normally ask for you to arrive a day before your surgery date to have further testing done and set up your surgery accordingly to ensure your safety. We also ask for a range of tests (based on your medical form) that you will need to send to us prior to your surgery date, and your surgeon will confirm these for you. It is important for these tests to be done before you arrive in Bangkok, so if there are any concerns, you will be given information and directions to ensure you will be ready for surgery when you arrive.


Once you have met with your surgeon and are happy to proceed, you will be taken to be prepared for your surgery. After your surgery, you will spend the required number of nights in your private ward room in our hospital under 24 care. When your surgeon has given you the all-clear, you can then go back to your luxury hotel and relax! You will be given medications and aftercare instructions, as well as follow-up appointment times (where your nurse visits you in your hotel for checkups). If you wish to come back to the hospital at any other time, you may do so.

In your final consultation, your surgeon will examine you to ensure you are safe to fly and provide you with a fit-to-fly certificate. Once your time is over in Thailand, we will take you back to the airport and fly home. All transfers are included – Airport, Hotel, Hospital.

Five Star Recovery

Bangkok is the perfect destination for your surgery and/or dental trip as most attractions, shopping malls and transportation are air conditioned and away from the warm climate of Thailand. This is particularly important for your post-op recovery after surgery. Our hotels are located in the best parts of town, away from the nightlife – yet close to all major shopping centres (you can walk to them!), massages, hair salons and beauty salons so you can have the best possible recovery and indulge a little!
