Overview of

Thigh Lift

in Thailand

Thigh lift surgery, which can also be called thighplasty, is a form of cosmetic surgery which is designed to tighten the skin of your thighs. There are multiple reasons a person could want their skin tightened. They could have stretch marks, or have lost lots of weight, or they may just want to appear younger and healthier. A person will get the best results from this procedure if they consistently do muscle toning exercises before and after surgery.

Goals of

Thigh Lift

A thigh lift alters the shape of your thighs, making them look slim and proportional to the rest of your body. Thighplasty can be done in combination with liposuction, which increases the appearance of smoother, toned thighs.

How it works:

Thigh Lift

A thigh lift is done to remove excess skin and fat located in and around the inner thighs. It’s a simple procedure. After the surgery the thigh incisions are stitched closed. Whilst it’s straightforward, the procedure is time consuming due to the large surface area being worked on and length of the incisions that need closing. In most cases dissolvable stitches will be used and they will be protected by surgical tape. Average completion time is about 2 hours.

Preparation before

Thigh Lift

Pre - treatment

Before surgery you will be advised to reduce or stop smoking, drinking alcohol, and in some cases told to stop taking certain medication or herbal supplements. Your doctor will advise you on what they think is best. This should happen roughly 2 weeks prior to surgery to ensure there is nothing in your system that might cause surgical complications. Those with existing medical conditions should consult their specialist to ensure they’re suitable for surgery.

Recovery after

Thigh Lift

Post - treatment

You’ll be wearing a compression garment post-surgery, this will reduce the amount of swelling and bruising you’ll experience. You’ll be prompted to walk around as soon as you are comfortable to do so, as this aids in recovery. Your dressings will be changed about 5 days post surgery, but your dressings will be checked regularly for issues. You may notice blood presenting on your inner thigh. This is normal, however, if you are concerned about the amount of blood your thigh can be padded and redressed.

FAQs:

Thigh Lift

Will I be awake during surgery?

No, you’ll be unconscious. General anesthesia will be used.

How long will my stay in Bangkok be?

Two weeks is a good estimate. You’ll be in the hospital for 2 nights and you must come back for a follow up after 7-10 days.

What is the recovery time?

The swelling and bruising you’ll experience will reduce and you should be recovered in about 3 weeks. Your scar tissue will still be prominent by then, but will continue to reduce over the next 6-12 months.

Are the results permanent?

If you take care of your body the results will be long lasting. However, any significant changes in your weight will counteract the results of your surgery.

Will there be visible scarring?

Scaring is the main concern post surgery. They will fade and can be hidden in the meantime. If you’ve suffered keloid formation before you should consider this before surgery and whether the pros of thighplasty outweigh the con of scar formation.

What will my thighs feel like post-procedure?

You’ll wear a compression garment post-surgery to reduce swelling and bruising. Once you’re feeling well enough you’ll be asked to get up and move around. Your dressings will be examined regularly and changed about 5 days post-surgery. Excess blood around your thighs is normal, but your dressing and padding can be adjusted or changed if you have major concerns. 

Will I have any scars?

You can never be certain if surgery will result in scarring and you can never predict the way a scar will look. Initially scars formed by thighplasty will be red, prominent and lumpy post-surgery. When you are fully healed you can focus on forms of scar reduction. For example silicone gel sheets can be used to reduce the appearance of scarring. Scars can take anywhere between 18 months to 2 years to reduce, but they may become permanent if the scar is stretched or irritated, so be careful. Once you are fully healed you may be able to have scar revision surgery to alter the scars appearance.
