Thigh lift is a surgical procedure that can be performed in combination with other treatments such as liposuction or butt lift in order to optimize the overall appearance.

Thigh lift : for whom is it eligible ?

A thigh lift is suitable for people in a good health and whose skin has lost elasticity with age or after a severe weight loss.

This leads to an excess of skin and subcutaneous tissue which does not disappear through exercise or diet and must be surgically removed. This excess skin becomes visible on the inner and outer sides of the thighs. In this case, a thigh lift can quickly remedy the situation and help the patient regain a pleasant body feeling.

If there is no excess skin and the patient is interested in reducing the circumference or mass of his or her thighs, liposuction is completely sufficient. In pronounced cases, liposuction is combined with a subsequent thigh lift. In this way, the best possible result and a harmonious silhouette is achieved. The patient's skin condition is also a criterion for a successful operation.
Of course, the patient should be physically healthy and not suffer from any pre-existing conditions that could affect the operation. This is analyzed and discussed in detail with the surgeon in advance as the patient will have to tell him/her whether he/she is suffering from certain diseases or allergies, if he/she is taking some medications...

Blood analysis must also be done before thigh lift Tunisia.

What is the procedure for a thigh lift ?

Usually, thigh lift is performed under general anaesthesia. The technique or incision of the surgeon depends on the extent, localization and condition of the patient's skin to be removed. Thus, the surgical procedure differs minimally from one patient to another.

Before the surgery, the surgeon draws the planned incision on the skin of the patient.

The incisions begin laterally at the level of the pubic hairline above the inguinal crease and run across the thigh perineal crease to the buttock crease. After the incisions are made, the skin is dissected away from its support and pulled upward.

The skin is now removed and sutured back into place. In order to achieve an optimal, long-lasting tightening of the thighs, it is important that the skin flaps are attached to the pubic as well as the inguinal rim.

Due to a special suturing technique and intensive scar care after the thigh lift, the scars are very inconspicuous later on. If necessary, drains are placed after the procedure to drain wound secretions. In addition, the wound is protected from external influences by a plaster bandage. The patient is given antibiotics, which prevent infections of the wound.
The duration of the thigh lift is two to three hours.

- Scar course and appearance

A thigh lift which requires only one incision from the groin to the buttock crease results in very inconspicuous scarring which can be completely hidden by a bikini or underwear.

The situation is different when a larger excess of skin needs to be removed which involves another vertical incision on the inner thigh which can vary in length.

As a result of a tightening operation, there is an increased traction on the scar that forms which leads to the formation of scars that are relatively wide.

Thigh lift : the recovery period

After a thigh lift, the surgeon will prescribe you painkillers to reduce the pain.
Usually, after wound closure, a bandage is applied to stabilize the treatment result. This is usually worn for about two weeks. Some specialists use self-dissolving sutures for the procedure, so there is no need to pull the suture.

In the first month after the thigh lift Tunisia, physical rest is of great importance. Heavy activity as well as sports should be avoided for 2 to 3 months, your surgeon will indicate you the period. The tension still acting on the scar during the first 14 days may cause temporary pain, so, pain medication may have to be taken. The scar should be protected from the sun for the first six months to prevent unsightly discoloration.

Thigh Lift FAQ

How to lift thighs without surgery ?

Firming the thighs without resorting to surgery is entirely possible through various non-invasive methods. Here are some approaches to consider :

  • Targeted Exercises: Strength training exercises can help strengthen the thigh muscles, which can contribute to firming the skin. Squats, lunges, side leg raises, and leg extensions are excellent choices. Incorporating weights into your workout routine can increase the effectiveness of these exercises.
  • Cardio: Cardiovascular activities such as running, brisk walking, cycling, and swimming can help burn fat and tone the thighs. When you lose body fat, the skin tends to improve in terms of firmness.
  • Balanced Diet: Maintaining a healthy and balanced diet is essential to achieve your thigh firming goals. Avoid foods high in refined sugars and saturated fats, and opt for lean proteins, vegetables, fruits, and whole grains.
  • Hydration: Drinking an adequate amount of water is crucial for maintaining skin elasticity. Water hydrates the skin from the inside and promotes a better appearance.
  • Firming Creams: Some cosmetic creams may contain ingredients such as caffeine, retinol, or hyaluronic acid, which can temporarily improve the appearance of the skin by stimulating blood circulation and hydrating the skin.
  • Massages and Massage Techniques: Targeted massages can help stimulate blood circulation and promote a firmer skin appearance.

What sport can tighten the skin of the thighs ?

Sports are an excellent way to tighten the skin of the thighs, in combination with a balanced diet and adequate hydration. In addition to the exercises mentioned above, other activities can also help :

  • Dance: Dance, especially styles like contemporary dance, ballet, or aerial dance, engage the thigh muscles while improving flexibility and posture.
  • Yoga and Pilates: These disciplines strengthen the thigh muscles while improving flexibility, which can contribute to a better skin appearance.
  • Aqua Aerobics: Water exercises, such as water aerobics, are gentle on the joints and help work the thigh muscles while improving blood circulation.
  • Elliptical Trainer: This cardio machine combines the movements of cycling and running, providing an excellent thigh workout.
  • Step Aerobics: Using a fitness step can strengthen thigh muscles and improve coordination.

What is the ideal age for a thigh lift ?

The ideal age to consider a thigh lift varies from person to person. Generally, there is no strict age limit for this procedure because the need for a thigh lift depends more on the individual condition of the skin and thigh muscles than on age itself. However, most candidates for thighplasty are typically between the ages of 30 and 60.

Potential candidates often include individuals who have lost a significant amount of weight, resulting in sagging thigh skin. They may also be individuals whose skin has lost its elasticity due to aging. Consultation with a plastic surgeon is essential to assess whether the procedure is appropriate for a specific person, as needs and expectations vary considerably. The surgeon will consider skin quality, the extent of sagging, and other factors to determine the appropriate time for thighplasty.

Does collagen tighten the skin on the inner thighs ?

Collagen is an essential protein that contributes to maintaining the firmness and elasticity of the skin. However, it is important to note that the application of topical collagen or cosmetic products containing collagen cannot significantly tighten the skin on the inner thighs.

The loss of skin elasticity on the thighs is often the result of a combination of factors such as aging, significant weight loss, genetics, and individual factors. Topical collagen treatments may have temporary effects, such as increased skin hydration, but they cannot reverse significant skin sagging.

If you are looking to tighten the skin on the inner thighs more effectively, options such as thighplasty (thigh lift) or other plastic surgery procedures may be recommended. It is advisable to consult a qualified plastic surgeon to discuss the best options for your specific needs.

Is thighplasty painful ?

The pain associated with thighplasty, or thigh lift, varies from patient to patient, but it is common to experience some degree of pain and discomfort after the surgery. The amount of pain will depend on several factors, including the extent of the surgery, individual pain tolerance, and the pain management methods used by the surgeon.

During the thighplasty procedure, the plastic surgeon will make incisions to remove excess skin and tighten the underlying tissues. After the operation, patients may feel a sense of tension, pulling, or even pain. However, the pain is typically manageable and is often controlled with pain medications prescribed by the surgeon.
