What is Thigh Lift Surgery?
After extensive weight loss, sagging skin can remain around the thigh area. Sometimes this can be impossible to shift, even through simple diet or exercise, and the thighs rubbing together can cause chaffing or infection. Thigh Lift surgery for women can deal with this excess, and can greatly improve your comfort and appearance.
The procedure involves an incision in the groin area through which the excess skin is removed.
What results can I expect?
Texture of skin improved, restoring youthfulness to physique

Body shape improved, appearance in close fitting garments enhanced
No more uncomfortable chaffing of thighs
Frequently Asked Questions about Thigh Lifts
Who will do my initial consultation?
Our Consultant Plastic Surgeon
What is the recovery time like?
A thigh lift usually takes 1 to 2 hours and will require an overnight stay in hospital. You will need to take between 5 and 10 days off work to recover; the exact time will depend on the extent of the surgery.
You can experience some bruising and discomfort after the procedure, your aftercare will be managed with the support of your Consultant Plastic Surgeon and River Medical Registered General Nurse to ensure you the safest and most comfortable recovery.
How should I prepare for my procedure?
There are a few elements to this: preparation will begin with your initial consultation with our Consultant Plastic Surgeon, you will also meet with one of our Registered General Nurses. They will both go through every aspect of the surgery and your recovery with you.
You will come in once more before your surgery to have a further comprehensive pre-operative assessment with your River Medical Registered General Nurse.
The Consultant Plastic Surgeon will be available to you right up until your surgery should you wish to see him again.
Why do you not have before and after pictures on the website?
Before and after pictures on websites can be misleading as they may not be patients of the surgeon who will be doing your Thigh Lift.
As every person wanting Thigh Lift has completely different expectations it is a much more valuable tool for your Consultant Plastic Surgeon to show pictures of not only Thigh Lifts that he as actually done but also show you results you will be likely to receive.
