Inner thigh lift

Inner thigh lift is intended for patients having a significant skin laxity along the inner thigh region caused by a massive weight loss or natural ageing. This type of surgery reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin and, in some cases, fat resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned, youthful-looking contours of the thighs.

Preparing for inner thigh lift

During the preoperative examination, the surgeon evaluates skin quality, muscle tone and bone structure, explaining aesthetic goals and achievable results. The pre-surgical assessment is a very important factor to exclude possible complications that could undermine the surgical outcome.

Inner thigh lift procedure

The most common procedure for thigh lift places incisions in the groin, extending downward and wrapping around the back of the thigh. The underlying tissue matrix is reshaped and tightened where skin is reduced and rewrapped resulting in more proportionate and smoother body contours. The average duration of this surgery is about one hour.

Postoperative care instructions

Inner thigh lift requires an overnight hospital stay and within 4-5 days most patients can restart their normal life. It is advisable to take a shower promptly after surgery to ease the healing of the scar and improve its appearance. The result is immediately visible and long lasting.

Scars in inner thigh lift

The incision, properly practiced within the pubic area, is concealed, hidden by underwear or a bathing suit.


Who undergoes Inner thigh lift?

Patients require this procedure to remove excess skin and related stretch marks in the inner thigh area.

Is there any age limit to undergo this type of plastic surgery?

There is no age limit to undergo this procedure as long as the skin is sufficiently elastic.

Is it possible to combine inner thigh lift with other cosmetic procedures?

Inner thigh lift is often combined with a preventive liposculpture to lighten the part before the lifting operation.

Are there risks and / or complications for this type of plastic surgery?

This type of surgery does not involve special risks if carried out by qualified surgeons who perform plastic surgery procedures in accredited facilities with the presence of an anaesthesiologist.
