A problematic area for many people is the upper legs, whether this is due to the effects of ageing, weight-loss or simply the case of a stubborn area, resistant to diet and exercise. Some individuals find they feel self-conscious about their thighs and the saggy, excess skin. A thigh lift is a body contouring procedure that reshapes the thighs by removing fat and excess skin to create a smoother lower body.
It is important to understand that in some cases a thigh lift alone will not remove excess fat. If your skin elasticity is poor, liposuction as well as a thigh lift may be necessary.

The best candidate for a thigh lift is someone who is:
As with any cosmetic surgery procedure, it is important to remember that your surgery will not turn you into someone else and you should not rely on your procedure to change your life. If you are considering undergoing a procedure it is imperative you speak to someone you trust, are happy in your life and are simply seeking to enhance your appearance and confidence, rather than looking to completely change who you are. It is equally important you are psychologically ready.
It is important to discuss with your doctors and with us any:
Once you arrive at your destination you will have a physical evaluation with your surgeon, where you will discuss your goals and concerns and finalise the plan for surgery. At this examination your surgeon will determine the best procedure for you and explain it to you in detail, including any limitations. It is important that you head into surgery with realistic goals. During this examination your surgeon may also make recommendations for other procedures available to you at the same time.
In the lead-up to your surgery, it is important you do the following:
Stop smoking. Smoking can cause problems with circulation and increase the possibility of complications.
Length of surgery:
Depending on the extent of the procedure, surgery usually takes between two to three hours. Most patients require at least one night in the hospital.
Recovery and post-op care:
A potential risk in some patients is fluid accumulation, so to prevent this your surgeon may leave a small, thin drain tubes under the skin for a few days to drain excess fluid that may collect. Dressings and bandages will likely be applied to your incisions after the surgery to protect them, and it is important the incisions are not subject to excessive force or motion during your time of healing. These are all things your surgeon will discuss with you post-surgery, and they will give you specific instructions.
After your procedure you will also likely be given compression garments to wear for at least one month. After the initial two days you are likely to be able to remove the garments for showering.
After two to three weeks, you can resume normal, daily activity. Strenuous activity, such as lifting and exercise, must wait six to eight weeks.
After two to three months, scarring will have healed and faded, and will likely continue to fade more within the next few months. At this point you can begin to expose your legs to the sun, as long as you are wearing sunscreen and do not spend too long in the sun. Sun exposure before this time can impact the scar healing process.
Pain and discomfort can be managed with oral medications and you will also be prescribed antibiotics to prevent any infection.
Length of stay:
Most surgeons recommend spending 7-10 days, as you will have regular check-ups throughout your holiday. To get the most out of your recovery time we suggest you partake in gentle exercise, yoga classes and treat yourself to some pampering. If you are feeling up to it, there is plenty to see and do in Phuket, Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur.
Risks and complications are minimised by using our highly-skilled, trusted doctors and nurses. However, with every precaution taken complications can still occur. These are rare and few patients experience any issues. If you have any concerns about your procedure and the possible preconditions and risks, please discuss them with your doctor and nurses.
Potential risks include:
Many people who travel to Thailand & Malaysia have more than one procedure to obtain a more balanced look and to take advantage of the cost savings. This is particularly common in patients seeking body contouring procedures due to weight loss. Non-surgical treatments are also commonly undertaken, such as dermabrasion and chemical peels or dental procedures.
