Thigh lift

Thigh Lift Surgery at the Portsmouth Cosmetic Clinic, Spire Portsmouth Hospital

Losing large amounts of weight and the effects of aging can leave loose or baggy skin around your bottom or thighs. This can be uncomfortable, embarrassing and restrict the clothes you can wear.

A thigh and/or buttock lift could help to give you back a smoother, more trim looking figure and slimmer more toned bottom.

A thigh and buttock lifts (sometimes known as a lower body lift when performed together) can deal with stubborn areas of sagging skin that you have been unable to shift through diet or exercise. It should not be considered as a way to lose weight however. It is better to have a buttock or thigh lift after you have achieved your target weight.

The procedure may be combined with liposuction to help you achieve the results you want.

What to expect

Before surgery

When you meet with your consultant you can discuss the changes you are hoping to achieve. The consultant will explain the results you can expect from the surgery and will discuss the associated risks and alternatives to the procedure before going ahead.

The surgery removes excess skin and fat through incisions on the thigh and/or buttocks. For an inner thigh lift the incisions will be up the inner thigh. For outer thigh and buttock lifts cuts may be made just above the buttocks.

The operation is performed under general anaesthetic, which means you will be asleep during the procedure.

After your thigh and buttock surgery

You may stay in hospital for a night or two depending on the procedure you have chosen and will need to plan time off work so that you can recover at home.
