Thigh Lift – Malaysia – Patient Reviews
For many people, the upper legs become an increasingly problematic area as they age, while others find that the thighs remain stubbornly resistant to diet and exercise after massive weight loss. Fat cells, cellulite, and excess skin can accumulate on the thighs, making people look heavier, older, and less fit than they actually are.
What is Thigh Lift?
Thigh lift surgery or thighplasty, reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin, and in some cases fat, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body. Its aim is to give your thighs a firmer, sleeker altogether more youthful look.
If fitness and weight loss efforts have not achieved your goals for a body that is firmer, more youthful-looking and more proportionate to your overall body image, a surgical lift may be right for you.
Thigh lift surgery can markedly improve the appearance of your legs. The combined effects of aging, gravity, fluctuations in weight, and a loss of skin elasticity all contribute to loss of tone in the thighs as we age.
WHEN TO DECIDE THAT YOU NEED Thigh lift?
- If you want your thighs to have a better, more proportional contour and a firmer look and feel.
- If you have undergone bariatric surgery or massive weight loss.
- If you are distressed about loose, flabby skin on your thighs.
- If you have difficulty fitting into clothing because of heavy thighs.
ON WHAT BASIS DO PLASTIC SURGEONS DECIDE YOU ARE A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR Thigh lift?
- Medical conditions – Do you have any medical conditions that could interfere with healing after liposuction?
- Medications – Are you taking any medications, including herbal remedies or non-prescription medications, that can increase your risk for complications or that may interfere with healing?
- Cost – Can you really afford this procedure?
- Weight loss – If you have not yet reached your weight loss goals, losing further weight could cause your thigh tissue to droop again. In addition, gaining significant weight after your procedure can also interfere with your results. Your surgeon may be able to work with you to determine a target weight for this procedure. Every patient needs to be evaluated as an individual taking into account their anatomy, fat distribution, goals and expectations.
Also these are the ones that are NOT good candidates for Thigh Lift
Most women are candidates for the procedure. There are only 6 dis-qualifiers:
- Unhealthy, or have medical problems making you unfit for surgery
Smokers have a poor capacity to regenerate tissue. We recommend that a patient stops smoking at least 2 months before the procedure and abstain from even a single whiff or puff throughout the process and for 3 months after. If she cannot comply, we cannot help her.
- Aspirin and Other Over-the-Counter Food Supplements and Vitamins That May Impair Blood Clotting
We have seen disastrous results when a patient has prolonged bleeding time from long-term use of Omega 3 fatty acids, ginkgo biloba, garlic, ginger, ginseng, vitamin E, herbal tea, and green tea to name a few. It is imperative that the patient stops aspirin, all vitamins, and all herbal supplements at least 2 weeks before the procedure.
- Not realistic about what to expect. It’s good to dream, but if you are imagining all types of unrealistic visions of how this will dramatically change your life, you may not be an ideal candidate.
- Emotionally unstable.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM Thigh lift
- remove the lax skin from the upper inner thigh.
- this is a [re-shaping] and contouring [of your body] — it’s not a weight loss procedure.
- it’s the best procedure for the ones who had large weight loss, or like a post-bariatric surgery patient with an extreme amount of loose skin
- Can be done as out patient surgery.
WHAT TO NOT EXPECT
It may be difficult to have reasonable expectations after reading advertisements and looking at pictures of women and men who have had thigh lift. Remember that advertising is made to make you want to purchase a product or service. Advertisements do not usually tell you about problems or shortcomings of the product or service.
- It’s not a scar free procedure. There may be scars at the site where the doctor made the cut. These scars are usually small and fade with time but in some people, scars may be larger or more prominent.
- not intended strictly for the removal of excess fat. Liposuction alone can remove excess fat deposits where skin has good elasticity and is able to naturally conform to new body contours.
YOUR GOALS AND body CHARACTERISTICS WILL DEFINE THE APPROACH TO PROCEDURE
However, it’s also vital to understand every case has it’s own approach and scenario. So it’s not accurate to compare what you read online with actual procedure. As it might only act as a generic reference.
Thigh lift is done at an accredited hospital on an outpatient basis and it can be done under general or local anesthesia. If general anesthesia is used then you will be asleep during the entire procedure. If local anesthesia is used then you will be awake during the entire procedure but will be given a light sedative and the area to be operated on will be numbed.
PREPARING FOR thigh lift
If you decide to go ahead with thigh lift, your surgeon will give you instructions on how to prepare for the surgery. This may include dietary guidelines, alcohol restrictions, or taking or avoiding certain vitamins. and also these points need to be addressed with your surgeon prior to your liposuction operation:
- How soon can I exercise after surgery?
- May I see pictures of previous patients’ results?
- How long will I need to be off work?
- What are my post-op restrictions and for how long?
- What surgical technique do you use?
- How soon may I shower after surgery?
- Which places need most lift, and can it all be done on the same day?
NOTE: We require all of our patients to get medical clearance two weeks prior to surgery. An H&P (history and physical) and a CBC blood test are the minimum requirements for healthy adults. You should stop smoking and refrain from taking aspirin products one month prior to surgery.
Warning: Do not, do not, do not, go to a doctor that does not do this as his only line of business. Do not use a pediatrician, a general doctor, an ear, nose and throat doctor – get my point?? Do not use any doctor that has added this to his practice and sandwiches your thigh lift allergy shots and annual physicals.
It is not all about the machine, but more so about the Doc. I see all forum lovers talking about the technology being used, but nothing about the provider of the service.

Thigh lift PROCEDURE STEPS
Thigh lift surgery usually takes two to three hours to perform, depending on the severity of your condition and the amount of correction required. After you are properly anesthetized, Dr. Revis will make the incisions necessary for removal of excess skin and fat. Depending on the amount of improvement you desire, this incision may extend all the way around the thigh or only part of the way around the thigh in the groin crease between the trunk and the thigh.
There are different types of thigh lifts that target certain areas of the thighs for specific results:
- Medial Thigh Lift
- Targets the inner thigh. During an inner thigh lift, an incision is made at the area where the thigh and pubic area meet. A wedge of skin and fat is then removed and the skin is closed, leading to skin tightening, an improved leg contour and enhanced skin elasticity.
- Lateral Thigh Lift
- Is designed to tighten skin on the front and outside of the leg. During a lateral thigh lift, an incision is made at the top of the leg where the lower edge of your underwear would be. A certain amount of skin is then removed before pulling the remaining skin up and attaching it to the same area. Through this technique, a lateral thigh lift serves to tighten skin along both the right and left side of the leg. This procedure is especially helpful to those who have excess skin after significant weight loss.
Thigh lift RECOVERY – After Care
Removal of tissue from the inner thigh or medial thigh will leave an incision along the groin crease. This requires 2-3 weeks of healing. It is not uncommon to have small separations in the incision, requiring additional healing time. Most do not require surgical closure as a second follow up operation.
Larger thigh reductions, such as a lower body lift (which addresses the buttocks/posterior thigh, hips/lateral thigh, and anterior thigh), may require 4 to 6 weeks of recovery. The longer the incision, the longer the time required to allow them to heal.
Limitations in activity are typically placed to minimize stretching of the scar. You should not resume more exercise for at least 2 months after your operation. Mild and normal activity levels are generally possible within that time. However, we do prefer patients to be active to minimize the possibility of a deep vein thrombosis. In the meantime you may wear compression stockings to minimize your risk and perform point and flex toe/calf exercises (like they instruct you on an airplane) to diminish venous stasis.
Excessive bending or flexing may be prohibited by your surgeon. Aids such as a walker or toilet seat riser may be beneficial.
Walking and driving will be impossible the first few days after surgery so make sure you have someone who can stay with you to help you around your home. Or Makeovervacations provides the right nursing personal for your comfort at home or hotel.
Generally, we find our paitents need around two weeks to feel mobile and independent.
The Right Garments for Post-care
We usually tell our patients to wear something comfortable like sweat pants or a sweat shirt (depending on the area being treated). The area being treated tends to be a little swollen, constrictive apparel would be uncomfortable to the patient. Patients are sent home with compression garments; so these should be able to fit under clothing easily.
PRECONDITIONS AND RISKS – thigh lift SURGERY
We minimize risks and complications of Thigh lift by selecting patients carefully and always having the most skilled surgeons, physicians and nurses carry out procedures. However, despite the highest standards, complications can occur. They are rare, and most patients will not have complications, but if you have concerns about possible complications, please discuss these with your doctor.
You are at increased risk of complications if you have diabetes, poor circulation, heart, lung or liver disease, smoke, have a family history of blood clots, take certain medications, etc. You must disclose all these conditions to the surgeon before booking your thigh lift surgery.
Note: Our registered nursing staff will monitor you in the post-anesthesia recovery area after your surgery. Your doctor will allow you to go home after the effects of anesthesia have worn off, accompanied by our MV dedicated helper for you.
THE LESS COMMON (rare) COMPLICATIONS OF Thigh lift SURGERY INCLUDES:
All surgical procedures carry some risk. Possible complications from a thigh lift include:
The largest risk is for poor scar. The scar can become thick or wide. Rarely the wound will not heal immediately. You can also have infections. The risks are significantly increased in smokers. Therefore, plastic Surgeons will not do this surgery until you stop smoking.
The scars for the medial thigh lift are hidden in the groin area, and can sometimes extend along the inner thigh. Over time, the scars should flatten and become less noticeable. Exactly how noticeable they end up can depend on several variables.
Skin tone and elasticity will play a role, as well as color. A caucasian’s scarring will be less noticeable than the scarring on a dark skinned person. A person with good skin tone and elasticity will heal better than if the skin has poor tone and elasticity.
Generally though, the scar that is left behind is well worth being rid of the hanging, excess skin which is present before surgery. Scars can also have a vertical component along the inner thigh, depending on the quantity of skin to be removed.
These all may sound scary, but complications are rare. Our surgeons can answer any questions you may have about the risks and can put them in perspective to ease your mind or help you decide not to proceed with surgery.
Do Thigh lift Give Long-Lasting Results?
Thight lift has been shown to be effective and long lasting. That said, no surgical procedure can prevent an individual from gaining weight. If one’s caloric intake is greater than what they burn in exercise they will gain weight. So maintaining weight is the key to have permanent results for the lifetime.
