Thigh Lift in Ludhiana & Chandigarh, Punjab

"Forget about the chubby, unproportionate lower body."

Thigh lift surgery, also known as Thighplasty, is a thigh plastic surgery performed to improve or reduce the shape of the thighs. The excess skin could be a result of aging, excess weight loss or even pregnancy. The goal is to do body contouring so as to obtain proper proportions and slimmer thighs, and say bye to the dimpled, flabby and sagged thigh problems.

The Thigh reduction surgery is ideal for people who haven't received toned lower body even after continuous exercising and are struggling with inner or outer thigh fat. The surgery removes excess fat deposits from beneath the skin of the thighs. The skin is later tightened and shaped before closing to give the youthful and firm lower body. In some cases where the fat is more stubborn, doctors do suggest a combination of liposuction with the thigh lift surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1. Am I a good candidate for a Thigh Lift surgery?

You may consider this surgery if you have abnormal fat deposit on your thighs. There are some factors that the surgeon ensures before granting the surgery. These include:

  • If you have had a stable weight for a long period of time.
  • If you have excess fat or soft skin on the inner/outer thigh areas.
  • You are a non-smoker.
  • You should not have any medical condition or be on any medication that may prevent healing or increase risks during surgery.
  • If you have realistic expectations from the Thighplasty.
  • You don't intend to have weight fluctuations, and commit to regular exercise and a healthy lifestyle.

2. What are the different types of Thighplasty?

We have three regions of the thigh that can get a thigh lift. They are:

1.Inner Thigh: This thigh lift surgery performed on the lower part of the inner thigh as the fat deposits in this case are closer to the knee.

2.Medial Thigh: This surgery is aimed at removing fat from the upper portion of the inner thigh.

3.Bilateral Thigh:This thigh lift surgery targets the skin and fat on the front and outer thigh. This procedure is usually longer than the other two and takes more recovery time.

3. How can you prepare yourself for a Thighplasty?

To prepare for a thigh lift surgery, the patient needs to discuss the case and their results with the cosmetic surgeon beforehand. Choosing the best cosmetic surgeon is the number one preparation. But some other preparations include:

  • Medical evaluation of your case
  • Adjusting dose of any current medicines that may interfere with the treatment
  • Stop smoking
  • Stop any anti-inflammatory, or blood thinner medicines to avoid excess bleeding during the procedure.

4. How is the process of Thighplasty carried out?

Thigh lift surgery is a cosmetic surgery done to achieve proportionate, slimmer and toned lower body by body sculpting of the thighs. The surgeon marks the areas that need to be treated, before administering anaesthesia to the patient. Most cases are given general anaesthesia whereas some get operated with epidural. The cosmetic surgeon decides on the point of incision on the bikini line. Surgery can be performed with a single incision, or in certain cases incisions are made in smaller sections.

Liposuction is performed to remove the excess fat from the thigh region. A small suction tube called the cannula is inserted in the incisions to remove the fat cells. Thereafter the excess skin is removed, reshaped, tightened and closed to obtain the desired results. This process usually takes 2-3 hours to complete.

The latest and the most advanced technique of Liposuction known as Vaser Liposuction can also be used to remove stubborn deposits of fat from the target region. Vaser is ultrasound assisted liposuction and highly effective in yielding satisfactory results.

5. What is the recovery process of the surgery?

Post-operative guidelines given by the surgeon should be followed properly to make the recovery process easy and smooth. The usual bruising, swelling and pain is there in the site of the surgery, for which pain killers and anti-inflammatory drugs are prescribed. Surgeons suggest use of compression belts to reduce swelling in the area.

An important thing to be understood about the recovery process of Thighplasty is that the patient needs to be very cautious when making any sort of movement, especially during the first two weeks. This is crucial because the incisions are in the thigh area and are, therefore, subject to tension and pulling when a patient sits, stands up, walks or bends.

Within a week patients may resume work depending on the type of work at hand. The results are seen instantly after the surgery but once the swelling and bruising subside, it gets better. Scars are located in the body’s natural creases but others fade away in a few months' time.

6. What are the risks and complication associated with Thighplasty?

Every surgery comes with risks and complications linked to them. So do the cosmetic surgeries. The risks linked to thigh lift surgery include:

  • Excess bleeding
  • Infection
  • Numbness
  • Undesired results
  • Skin burn due to the use of cannula
  • Continuous Pain
  • Risks involved with Anaesthesia

7. How to choose the right Plastic Surgeon?
