Thighplasty (Thigh Lift Procedure)
Sagging skin on the thighs can happen due to age or even after extreme weight loss. Regardless of how it developed, it can lower your self-esteem and make you less likely to show off your legs.
Luckily, there are procedures available that can lift, tone, and smooth out the excess skin and fat so that you have defined, sexy legs once again.
What is the Thighplasty Surgery?
A thigh lift surgery reshapes your thighs by removing excess skin and then tightening the underlying tissue. Liposuction may be used to eliminate the localized fat too. At UELC, we use SafeLipo, which will enhance your legs.
Peace of Mind with Expert Thigh Lift Surgery and Technology
At UELC, we take your satisfaction and safety very seriously. That is why you have nothing to worry about with this procedure. Our surgeons will ensure that you receive realistic, beautiful results, and we use the latest surgical technology to offer as little downtime as possible.
How We Do the Thigh Lift Procedure
A thigh lift involves the use of general anesthesia and is an outpatient procedure at our surgical centre.
Incisions are made from your groin to the area around the thigh. Then the internal tissues are pulled, shaped, and made tighter with sutures. Excess skin is also removed, and SafeLipo is applied (if needed).
The number of incisions you have depends on the amount of skin and fat we are reducing. However, they are placed in strategic locations to hide scarring and improve recovery time. Overall, you may expect two to three hours for your procedure to be completed.
Who is the Best Candidate for Thighplasty Surgery?
The ideals candidates for thigh lift surgery are individuals that have loose tissue or skin from their thighs, but their weight is stable. If you are currently in the process of losing weight, we recommend having the procedure done afterwards.
Also, the ideal candidate is a non-smoker and in good health overall; thus, healthy enough to endure anesthesia and the procedure itself.
What to Expect After Your Thigh Lift
Recovering from a thigh lift is relatively easy. You will go home the same day, but expect to take it easy that first day. You must restrain from rigorous activity the first six to eight weeks, and your scars will fade away in approximately six months.

What Does a Thigh Lift Cost?
A thigh lift at UELC starts at $8500, but the total price depends on the amount of skin and fat we are removing. Sometimes your procedure might be less or more. Therefore, we recommend coming in for a consultation and requesting a price quote. We have financing options available to make your procedure more cost-effective.
