Thigh lift at Obesity & Aesthetic Surgery in Tunisia

The thigh lift is an intervention in cosmetic surgery which aims to remove excess skin from the inner side of the thigh. This excess often appears in men and women after a powerful diet or even gradual aging.

Associated in most cases with liposuction, the thigh lift allows to find beautiful thighs well firmed and toned. To benefit from it, do not hesitate to consult the team of competent surgeons of Obesity & Aesthetic Surgery.

The thigh lift intervention

The thigh lift procedure is performed in the operating room under general anesthesia or under spinal anesthesia. It lasts two hours and depending on the degree of correction, surgeons offer two possible lifting techniques :

  • Medial thigh lift (or internal lift):

An incision is made in the groin area, and any excess fat and skin is excised along the inner side of the thigh. The area from the groin to the knee is reshaped and the procedure is repeated for the other thigh.

  • The lateral thigh lift (or external lift):

This is a more complex procedure, usually involving the shaping of the buttocks as well as the outer thighs and the removal of more tissue. Scarring is more extensive, and the skin will be less elastic after surgery, so the weight should be maintained.

Depending on the volume of excess and sagging thighs, our surgeons choose the lifting technique that best suits your needs.

In both cases, the thigh lift intervention lasts an average of two hours and requires a week’s stay.

Postoperative recommendations

During your recovery from cosmetic thigh lift surgery, bandages can be applied to your incisions following the surgical procedure. Small tubes can be temporarily placed under the skin to attract excess fluid or blood that can accumulate.

Our surgeons will accompany you with their expert advice and will offer you specific instructions which may relate to :

How to take care of the surgical site?

  • Treatments or medications to take by mouth to help with healing.
  • When to follow up with your plastic surgeon.

For more information, do not hesitate to contact one of our experienced surgeons. They will tell you about everything you need to know about the thigh lift.
