What are the potential risks and complications of a thigh lift?

Although surgery is generally safe, there are potential complications and risks associated with any surgery. I will discuss these general risks with you, and provide detailed information about the complications and risks associated with a thigh lift including:

  • Temporary numbness around the incision sites, which gradually improves with time
  • There may be distortion of the appearance and contour of the genitalia, especially in women
  • Movement may be restricted to the tightened skin of the thigh
  • Skin may not heal and a skin graft may be required
  • Patients who have large amounts of skin removed may require a blood transfusion
  • Fluid (seroma) may accumulate under the skin of the incision site which may require a draining procedure

Hypertrophic and keloids scars may form. These are scars which are prominent and visible, and may be itchy, unsightly and annoying. However, they do not pose a threat to your health.

How much does a thigh lift cost?

Costs associated with a thigh lift vary between $12,000-$17,000 depending on a number of factors:

  • Anaesthetist's fee
  • Private hospital or day surgical facility fees
  • Need for post-operative garments
  • Length of hospital stay
  • Whether you need other body contouring procedures such as liposuction, arm lift or tummy tuck
  • Surgical assistant's fee

After our consultation, my staff will give you an itemised account of the total cost.
