Thigh Lifts - Thigh Reduction

Thigh lifts or thigh reduction surgery (known as thighplasty) improves the shape and tone of the underlying tissue that supports fat and skin reshapes areas of the thighs by removing excess fat and skin. Improving contours to create a more toned youthful look to the thigh.

Following weight loss, and sometimes ageing, men and women can get sagging and rippling of the skin of their thighs that can extend from the upper thighs to the knees. Loose skin rubs together between their thighs and looks unattractive.

A thigh lift is a surgical procedure to remove skin and fat from the thighs to tighten the skin and improve the contour of the legs. A thigh lift may also be used to treat reduced skin elasticity caused by the ageing process or extreme weight loss. This procedure mostly tightens the skin of the inner thigh region and
therefore does not lift the front or back of the thigh. Sagging of the outer thighs and buttock regions is usually treated by way of a Buttock or Body lift.

Am I Suitable For A Thigh Lift?

Many of our patients who come to us for thigh surgery are individuals with excess soft tissue along the inner (medial) thigh region and/or the outer (lateral) thigh. Maybe fitness and weight control efforts have not achieved their goals for a thigh that is firmer, more youthful-looking and more proportionate to their overall body image, or the patient has recently lost a significant amount of weight and now have excess skin around the inner thigh then a surgical thigh lift may be right for you.
Thighplasty surgery reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin and fat, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body.

Patients are assesed on an individual basis in order to create a tailored care package personalised to the individual, this involves checking your medical and psychological health. Our dedicated team will ensure that prior to your decision, you meet with a Consultant Plastic Surgeon to talk through your specific needs, questions and queries.

The Thigh Lift Procedure

A thigh lift is carried out under general anaesthesia and will involve an overnight hospital stay.

A inner thigh lift involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the thighs. The position and size of the scars from a thigh lift can vary depending on each patient’s individual requirements. Once the skin and fat are removed, the incisions are stitched back together (using dissolvable stitches). In certain cases, this procedure can also be combined with liposuction to improve the results.


After thigh lift surgery, it is normal to expect some bruising but other risks can include infection, bleeding, haematoma, pain, skin loss, unevenness, wide, lumpy, red or visible scars.

*Individual Results May Vary.
