Thigh lift - Upper Leg lift - Thighplasty

Thigh lift - Upper Leg lift

The skin loses its elasticity after weightloss, pregnancy or just as a result of the aging process. The skin of the upper leg can become saggy, wrinkly and puckered as a result.

Excess skin can be aesthetically displeasing but also cause functional problems. The skin between the upper legs can become irritated as a result of friction caused by walking. A thigh or upper leg lift (also called thighplasty) can offer a solution.

A thigh lift or upper leg lift just removes the excess skin and subcutaneous tissue. With liposuction-liposculpture we can also remove any excess fat. Both procedures can be performed during the same operation. 

Possible treatments:

  • Medial thigh lift: inner + front of the thighs
  • Lateral thigh lift: outer + front of the thighs
  • Medial + lateral thigh lift: outer + inner + front of the thighs
  • Upper leg lift: thighs + skin of the upper legs.

Medial Thigh Lift

Lifting the inner thighs - upper legs

A thigh lift of the inner upper legs is a very popular procedure at the Wellness Kliniek. Most ladies experience saggy skin in this area. Because the scars are hidden in the skin crease they will be hardly noticeable.

Lateral Thigh Lift

Lifting the outer thighs - upper legs

As a result of aging and gravity the skin on the outer thighs can lose its firmness. This loss of elasticity can lead to saggy, irregular or wrinkly skin. Weightloss increases the problem. A lateral thigh lift can offer a solution to make the skin on the outer thighs firmer once more.

Following significant weightloss the skin can be too large for your body and hang off it like an empty sack. You made so much effort to lose weight, removing the excess skin is the last phase in achieving the amazing body shape you deserve. This operation is also frequently performed after a stomach reduction.
