With over half a million procedures undertaken, you're in safe hands
If excess skin and fat has you ashamed of your legs, Harley Street Skin has the perfect solution to reclaim that long-lost body confidence. After all, no one should be condemned to a lifetime of wearing leggings by the poolside.
A Thigh Lift (sometimes known as a 'thighplasty') is a procedure in which excess skin, fat and tissue is removed from the upper legs to achieve more toned, firm and healthy-looking legs. Skin can sag for a number of reasons - such as ageing or drastic weight loss - but whatever it is that has left you longing for more svelte legs, Thigh Lifts are truly transformational.
The remarkable difference a Harley Street Skin Clinic treatment can provide
Excess skin around the thighs can cause discomfort and discontent. Thigh lifts are specially designed to remove all of that excess skin which may be pinching, catching or simply causing you distress when looking in the mirror. Following the procedure, patients find their newly-fashioned thighs to be far more streamlined with a drastically improved profile and contour.
Whilst some visible scarring with this procedure is inevitable, patients typically find it far less obtrusive than the excess skin that was present to begin with.
Frustratingly, there are no quick fixes to excess skin. Skin cannot regain firmness on its own and while firming creams promise drastic improvement, they often just can’t deliver the sorts of results that we're hoping for. Sometimes drastic times call for drastic measures.
The decline of youthful proteins in the skin as a direct result of ageing means that sagging skin in this area can affect anyone - regardless of weight fluctutation. Thigh Lifts offer those that would usually dread bikini season, the chance to banish anxiety once and for all.
Firm and youthful legs needn't be a thing of the past. If you're seeking a solution to excessive fat and loose, cumbersome skin of the inner leg and knee - the Thigh Lift could very well be the procedure for you. If you're still unsure if a Thigh Lift is for you, why not explore some of our FAQs below?

The answer to some of the most common questions you may have
It's only natural to have questions if you are considering pursuing a treatment for the first time, and at Harley Street Skin, it's important to us that you feel confident and comfortable at every stage of your journey. To help you find the answers you need, here are a few of the more common quibbles that we find our clients frequently ask...
Thigh Lifts can be performed under local or general anaesthetic, depending on the amount of skin that is to be removed. First, an incision is made along the inner groin crease. Then, skin is lifted down to the muscle layer and the excess removed. The remaining tissue is then restitched with several layers of specialised stitching.
A Thigh Lift is the ideal procedure for removing skin that is sagging, loose, uncomfortable and embarrassing. Many patients find that severe skin sagging of the thigh can cause relentless chafing, unsightly bulging or pinching - as well as added pressure to the knees and calves. Thigh lifts can alleviate all of the above, and instead leave the area slimmer and firmer.
The outcome of this lift is not just physical, either, with many patients coming away from treatment with a huge confidence boost after suffering many years of anxiety and insecurity.

The effects of a Thigh Lift are permanent. The treatment won’t be able to prevent future natural sagging of the skin - although best results can be maintained through a healthy lifestyle.
The procedure itself generally takes around two hours to complete, but the duration can depend on the individual and the amount of fat and skin there is to remove. Following an initial consultation with a doctor, you will have a clearer idea of how long your thigh lift will take.
Due to the substantial amount of skin being removed, scarring is an inevitable side effect of this procedure. Whilst the incisions made are as inconspicuous as possible, the inner thigh will maintain some level of visible scarring longer term. These scars will improve dramatically over time and patients often find them a worthwhile exchange for the more toned, svelte legs they are left with.
On very rare occasions, there is also a potential risk of bleeding and infection. In these uncommon scenarios, further surgery may be necessary.
Following a Thigh Lift, we recommend that patients take at least 3-5 days to rest as much as possible. Patients are advised to take some time away from work - typically between 2 and 3 weeks from work - as bruising and swelling can take around ten days to subside. You can then begin to reintroduce exercise after 3-4 weeks of treatment. Once incisions have begun to heal, it is advised that patients wear a compression garment (similar to tight bicycle shorts) to encourage the skin to heal in position.
Most people will return to work after 2-3 weeks of surgery. Jobs that are more physically demanding may require a longer break from work but doctors will be happy to advise you more specifically in terms of comfortably returning to work.
