The aim of a thigh lift is to remove loose, excess skin and fat from either the inner thighs and then reshape the thighs to create a more toned appearance.
The procedure 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 well to reshape the contour 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.
You are a good candidate for a thigh lift if :
- You have realistic expectations with respect to scarring
- You want your thighs to have a better, more proportional contour and a firmer look and feel
- You have undergone bariatric surgery or massive weight loss and your weight is now stable
- You are distressed about loose, flabby skin on your thighs.
Thigh lift surgery is performed at Lingard Private Hospital or Warners Bay Private Hospital. You will be in hospital overnight.
The Medicare item number is 30171. We encourage our patients to check with their health fund that they are covered prior to their consultation/surgery.
