Arm & Thigh Lift

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. If the weight is then lost again, the skin may struggle to shrink back into place and instead start 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 Arm & Thigh Lift surgery

  • Helps to create a more proportionate figure, making wearing and buying clothes much more enjoyable and easier
  • To be able to wear clothes that are more figure revealing confidently and the ability to wear a greater variety of clothes
  • To feel more youthful and improve the appearance of the skin
  • Can improve your body's silhouette when wearing tight fitting clothes

 


The procedure for Arm & 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 will show the results of your weight loss, giving you smoother thighs and the confidence to wear summer clothing, swimwear and underwear proudly.
