Thigh Lift

A thigh lift is a procedure that greatly influences the overall silhouette of the patient. While an excess belly, flabby upper arms or even sagging buttocks can be concealed by the right clothing, the situation is different for thighs. These problems are often found to be resulting from an excess of skin and fatty tissue. Especially after massive weight loss or in the case of significant weight fluctuations, injuries to the skin and excess tissue can occur here due to the special nature of the skin. A thigh lift is often the last sensible measure to treat these problems.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is a thigh lift performed?

A thigh lift involves tightening and removing the excess tissue on the inside of the thighs. During the thigh lift, the soft tissues are moved inwards and upwards to fix them at the highest point (at the edge of the pelvis) (so-called pexia of the thighs). This means the tightening of the thighs can permanently counteract the effects of gravity to prevent the skin and soft tissues from wearing out again in the long term. Basically, two different procedures can be distinguished from each other, both of which have their justification and areas of application. On method means, the incision can be made during the thigh lift in such a way that the result is a spindle-shaped figure far up on the inner side of the thighs. This spindle-shaped form can be used to move the soft tissues of the thigh inwards and upwards in such a way that the end result is a fine scar on the inside of the thigh, which is just below the pubic area and thus remains largely inconspicuous. Alternatively, this incision can be extended during the thigh lift so that the incision runs down the inside of the thighs to the knee. This results in a thigh lift with a t-shaped scar on the inside of the thighs.

When is the t-shaped incision useful for a thigh lift?

A t-shaped cut in the direction of the knee makes sense if the thigh lift is not restricted to the upper part of the thigh. Then, following the spindle-shaped incision, a T-shaped incision can be made. This means the middle and especially the lower third of the thigh can also be changed by the thigh lift. The t-shaped incision is therefore particularly suitable for a thigh lift after massive weight loss, where the excess soft tissue and skin is so clearly manifested that a lift with a single transverse scar close to the pubic area is not sufficient. The choice of the right procedure is extremely important for the shape and thus the result of the thigh lift. As a rule, problems do not arise from longer scars but from unshapely and poorly tightened thighs. Therefore, if the findings are appropriate, the choice should be made for the T-shaped incision, so that no compromises have to be made in the shape and result of the thigh lift.

Can liposuction be sensibly integrated into the thigh lift?

Similar to other forms of lifting operations (abdominoplasty, upper arm lift, etc.), it can be useful to combine the thigh lift with liposuction. The advantage is that the thigh lift can be sutured more easily and without tension after the subcutaneous fat mantle has been treated with liposuction. In addition, special deposits and fat accumulations, which have so far proved resistant to diets and sport, can be identified and marked before the thigh lift. This can also significantly improve the overall result of the thigh lift and bring out the thigh’s contour and silhouette harmoniously.

General Information

The Advantages of the Spindle-shaped Cut for Thigh Lifts

During a thigh lift with the spindle-shaped incision, the soft tissues on the inside of the thigh, especially on the upper pole, can be removed and the thigh can be tightened. The great advantage of this method is the low scarring resulting from the spindle shape. This form of thigh lift results in a scar that runs across the thigh on the inside near the pubic region. The inner side of the thighs can also be tightened in this way, although not all thigh lifts can be carried out this way. A natural limit of this procedure is found with very voluminous thighs that offer so much excess skin and soft tissue that the lower parts of the thigh are not affected by the thigh lift.

Microsurgical Concept in a Thigh Lift

The anatomy of the thigh also leaves many possibilities for complications and poor results in thigh lift procedures if the surgeon does not observe basic principles. Basically, we operate every thigh lift under magnifying glasses and in compliance with microsurgical principles. Particularly on the inside of the thighs, the thigh lift should be performed with appropriate care, so that lymphatic and blood vessels are preserved and protected. This ensures the safe removal of lymphs and blood even after the operation. A broad and, above all, microsurgical training also means safety and a high quality of results for your upcoming operation.

Cost of the Initial Consultation

The costs of the initial consultation always depend on the type and extent of the treatment. In principle, the scale of fees for doctors applies to the consultation hours. Thereafter, patients pay 50 euros for the initial consultation with anamnesis, collection of previous findings, physical examination and preparation of a therapy and cost plan. This fee is payable once and will not be credited towards further treatment. Additional appointments and post-operative care are included in the total price of the operation and do not have to be paid separately. This is the only way to ensure a high-quality treatment with sufficient treatment time, during which we can respond to you and your specific needs. In order to ensure the success of the treatment, we have to carry out the consultation with sufficient time and care.
