Thigh lift surgery is done in order to reshape the thighs by reducing excess skin and fat, leading to smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body. If fitness and weight loss efforts have failed to achieve a body that is firmer, more youthful-looking, and proportionate to your overall body image, a surgical lift may be right for you.

The finest way to determine whether you are a candidate for thigh lift is through a proper consultation with a plastic surgeon at Vimhans PrimaMed Institute of Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery.


The surgery is performed under the impact of general anesthesia to comfort you during the surgical procedure. Incision patterns differ on the basis of area to be treated, degree of correction and patient and surgeon preference.

Inner thigh Lift incision

One method used for a thigh lift places incisions in your groin, extending downward and wrapping around the back of the thigh.

Other technique or method removes excess skin from the groin down to your knee using an incision along the inseam.

Outer Thigh Lift Incision

For improving the contours of the outer thigh you may require an incision extending from the groin around your hip and across the back.

Latest techniques commonly allow incisions to be placed in strategic locations where they can be hidden by different types of clothing and swimsuits. After the procedure, the incisions are closed with the help of sutures, skin adhesive tapes, or clips.
