Thigh & Arm Lift Surgery

Medically reviewed by The Harley Medical Group Clinical Governance Board, Chaired by Simon Smith (Medical Director & Consultant Surgeon) on 5th March 2020.

If you are unhappy with the way your arms and thighs look, then you are not alone. For many people, the joy and achievement of losing a significant amount of weight can be overshadowed by the excess skin that is left behind. Once the skin has been stretched beyond capacity due to weight gain, natural growth or pregnancy, stretch marks can appear and if the weight is then lost again, the skin may struggle to shrink back into place instead hanging in loose folds from certain areas of the body. Arm and thigh lift surgery is performed to remove this excess skin to leave the thigh area tight and smooth, and giving you the body confidence you deserve.

BENEFITS OF HAVING THIGH LIFT SURGERY

  • To help create a more proportionate figure and hence make clothes buying much more enjoyable
  • To be able to wear clothes that are more figure revealing and the ability to wear a greater variety of clothes
  • To feel more youthful and improve the appearance of the skin
  • To improve the body contour when seen through tight fitting clothes

THE PROCEDURE FOR ARM AND THIGH LIFT SURGERY

Arm or thigh lift surgery usually requires an overnight stay in hospital as it is performed under general anaesthetic and takes between two and three hours to complete. To perform the surgery your surgeon will make an incision around the top of the thigh (near the groin) before pulling the excess skin upwards, stitching it into its new position and trimming the excess. The result is smooth thighs that show the results of your weight loss and give you the confidence to wear summer clothing, swimwear and underwear proudly.

Choosing to have arm and thigh lift surgery

There are many reasons why people choose to have arm or thigh lift surgery:

  • To improve self-esteem and self-image
  • To help create a more proportionate figure and hence make clothes buying much more enjoyable
  • Shoulder marks from the pressure of bra straps
  • To be able to wear clothes that are more figure revealing and the ability to wear a greater variety of clothes
  • To feel more youthful and improve the appearance of the skin
  • Improve the body contour when seen through trousers or tight dresses

WHO SHOULD HAVE AN ARM OR THIGH LIFT
