Can’t seem to get rid of that stubborn fat around your inner thigh? Embarrassed by sagging skin after weight loss? Then a thigh lift may be what you need to boost your confidence this summer.

Following consultation with your surgeon and deciding that this procedure meets your expectations, your anaesthetist will put you under a general anaesthetic. An incision will be made in your groin, ending at the crease of your buttock. Excess skin is lifted and fat removed, improving the shape of your legs. As with any procedure, an incision is required, however the scar will be hidden in the groin and will fade over time.

Nights in hospital: 3

Duration of procedure: 4-5 hours

Recommended stay in Phuket: 10-14 days

Post-operative care: it is important following surgery to follow your surgeons instructions and advice to ensure optimum healing. After waking from your surgery, your legs will be bandaged. Some discomfort may be experienced the days following your procedure. It is important to rest and minimise leg movement during this time
