Thigh Lift Surgery (Thighplasty)

Thigh Lift Surgery, Thighplasty, Medial Thigh Lift and Upper Thigh Lift all describe the same surgical procedure that removes loose and excess skin on the upper inner thighs.

The upper inner thighs may develop very loose skin that hangs down in folds if:

  • you generally have very thin skin with poor elasticity
  • you have suffered massive weight loss
  • you have had excessive fat removal in that area from liposuction

Upper Thigh Lift surgery can reshape your upper thighs and leave you with tighter and smoother skin as well as better-proportioned thighs.

In some patients, there can also be bulges of excess fat that hang down or rub together causing chaffing and discomfort on walking or running.  If there is such excess fat present, the Thigh Lift may need to include Liposuction.

The amount of skin to be removed does vary with each patient and the standard incision runs in the fold where the upper thigh meets the groin and so the final scars are well hidden.  In some cases, a “T” incision may be necessary.

This procedure is performed by our highly experienced, Australian-trained, female Plastic Surgeon, Dr Sawjin Tew who has helped hundreds of patients over the years with her extensive experience and sense of artistry.

What are the costs?

The total cost of your procedure is made up of each of the following individual costs:

  • Surgeon’s fee
  • Anaesthetist’s fee
  • Hospital costs
  • Pre-operative medical tests
  • Medications

Our Plastic Surgeon will give you an itemised quotation at your initial consultation.

 Is Thigh Lift Surgery eligible for a Medicare rebate?

Thigh Lift Surgery in most instances is eligible for a partial Medicare Rebate. If you also have Private Hospital Insurance, a variable portion of the Hospital Fees can also be claimed depending on your Fund and Level of Cover.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
