Different Types of Thigh Lift Procedures
The Inner (Medial) Thigh Lift targets the inner thighs with the goal to remove inner thigh loose skin and excess fat for a tighter appearance. Usually a horizontal incision at the groin crease is made to elevate and tighten the upper third of the leg. Sometimes, the incision extends vertically down the inner part of the upper leg towards the knee to remove skin along the middle and lower thirds of the inner thigh.

Thigh Lift Recovery and Aftercare
Recovery from a thigh lift is a crucial phase where proper care and adherence to post-operative instructions are vital in ensuring a smooth healing process and optimal results.
Managing discomfort and swelling is addressed through pain management with prescribed medications, wearing compression garments to reduce swelling and support the new thigh contours, and keeping the legs elevated. The expected downtime varies; patients typically rest for at least a week or two post-surgery, with a return to work possible within 2–-3 weeks and resumption of more strenuous activities and exercise routines usually after 4–-6 weeks, pending surgeon approval.
Cost of Thigh Lift
The thigh lift cost ranges from $4,000 to $10,000 and varies depending on several factors, including the surgeon’s expertise, facility charges, anesthesia fees, and the specific type of thigh lift procedure undertaken. Additional costs may arise from combining the thigh lift with other procedures. Patients should consider additional expenses such as pre-operative tests, post-surgery garments, and follow-up care. Illuum Cosmetic Surgery likely offers detailed consultations to provide accurate cost estimates and may have financing options available for patients.
