Your whole body can change as a result of the natural ageing process, or genetic influences. Another factor affecting your body, leg shape and appearance is significant weight loss, which has its benefits, but can also mean that skin and tissue have lost their elasticity and the ability to conform to your reduced body size.
A thigh lift, medically referred to as ‘thighplasty’ works by removing excess skin and fat from the thigh, using techniques which can also improve the tone and shape of the underlying tissue. This leaves your skin with a smoother, more youthful looking surface, and providing that you maintain exercise and a healthy lifestyle, results should last a long time.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long will does thighplasty surgery take?
The procedure usually means a surgical incision along the top of your pubic bone and down the insides of both thighs. This will keep visible scarring to a minimum. You will be given a general anaesthetic, and surgery should take around two to three hours . During this time, skin and fat will be removed using a combination of techniques, including cutting excess tissue away and liposuction.
What are the risks associated with a thigh lift?
Any surgical procedure carries with it inherent risks of complications and infection. These risks will be carefully discussed during the initial consultation so that you can make a well informed decision about whether to proceed. It is worth taking note that the risks associated with surgery such as thighplasty are greatly reduced when you are in the hands of such capable surgeons as those at the New Image Clinic.
How much does a thigh lift cost?
Thighplasty usually costs between £6,500 and £7500, depending on the combination of procedures required for your particular circumstances.
What happens during the initial consultation at the New Image Clinic?
A detailed medical history is recorded at your initial consultation. You will also be subject to a thorough physical examination to ascertain your current state of health. Our surgeons, Mr Ali Juma and Mr Jamil Hayek, want to be entirely certain that this procedure is the right one for you. There will also be an opportunity for you to ask any questions and to discuss any worries that you might have.
What is the recovery process?
Post thighplasty, it will be six weeks before your body returns to normal and you will require two to three weeks’ rest following your treatment. It’s normal to spend one to two nights in hospital following surgery to reduce the risk of any postoperative complications. You will also be required to wear a pressure garment to aid healing during the recovery period, and your recovery process will be fully assessed at your follow up consultations.
