Concerned at the appearance of their inner thighs? Although bulging and sagging of the thighs can occur at all ages, bulging is more common in young women and looseness more common in middle age. Regaining firm, tight skin on the inner thighs with no bulges is not as easy as simply removing the fat by liposculpture. Liposculpture is more appropriate for other body areas, such as the outside thighs or the waist. The skin in these areas is thicker and more elastic so it can more easily accommodate the decrease in volume produced by removing the underlying fat.
The skin on the inside thigh is thinner and looser, and contains less elastin, plus the underlying fat is also softer than on the outside thighs.
The thigh lift works in a way that’s similar to abdominoplasty. Just as performing liposculpture alone on an abdomen that has stretch marks and skin looseness will give a poor result, so liposculpture alone on the inner thigh is likely to produce a poor-looking result in all but very firm and elastic thighs. The answer is to remove not only the fat but also some of the skin responsible for the loose look.
The thigh lift is an operation that takes about two and a half hours and requires a hospital stay of one or two days. The operation is performed under general anaesthetic. Recovery from the surgery takes four to six weeks before return to most physical activities, with maturation and lightening of the incision lines taking about six months.A thigh lift may be helpful if you have the following concerns about the appearance of your legs:
- The skin of the inner upper thighs bulges to meet and rub together in the middle
- This may cause discomfort and chaffing
- The thickness of your thighs is out of proportion with the rest of your legs
- The skin in the upper inner thigh is loose and uneven
- There are folds of skin and fat in the upper thigh
Revision/Corrective Surgery Cover
All Somnio’s major hospitals in Thailand offer a client guarantee policy to cover revision operations in Thailand should it be deemed necessary by the hospital’s board. If revision surgery is required, as a result from your elective surgery in Thailand, the Hospital Board will offer full or partial contributions towards the cost for the operation (could include: flights, accommodation and surgeon/theatre costs).
In addition to the client guarantee, if flights and accommodation are NOT covered by the hospital for the revision surgery, Somnio offers a Return Travel Warranty, that can be purchased separately, covering you in the unfortunate case that you are required to return to Thailand and the travel portion has not been covered. This warranty will cover flights and accommodation for the duration of stay required by the Hospital board for the surgery.
Additional elective medical coverage is also available through our partners at Global Protective Solutions. GPS provides benefits and services for both travel related accidents / illness as well as a host of benefits in the event of a medical complication that is a result from your elective procedure.
