    Thigh Lift

    Some patients develop unwanted fat and skin on their inner thighs, making it aesthetically disturbing and giving practical problems such as clothing and swimwear issues. This can manifest from severe weight loss.

    Liposuction can remove the fat but if the skin is sagging you will probably need to undergo the thigh-lift procedure.

    This comprises of incisions around the top of each thigh and is deemed as major surgery. Great care must be taken post-operation with instructions from your surgeon followed to the letter with regard to physical activity such as no stretching, otherwise the sutures may pull taught causing unsightly stretch marks in the area, which will be hard to disguise in swimwear.

    This surgery is only carried out when the surgeon feels that it will greatly enhance the quality of the patient, both physically and psychologically.

    Pre-Operation considerations
    To get optimal results and avoid complications you should avoid stress, stay out of the sun, eat healthily, keep your weight within a normal BMI range, exercise regularly, and refrain from alcohol for 2 days prior to surgery and 2 weeks after surgery. Please refrain from smoking for at least 1 week before surgery and a minimum of 2 weeks after surgery as smoking can interfere with the final result.

    Downtime following surgery
    Heavy physical exercise and strenuous body movement or lifting must not be undertaken for a minimum of 4 weeks following the surgery. 

    You can still move and do normal everyday things the day after surgery.
    The final results will emerge between 3 to 6 months following surgery. There is very rarely disappointment in the patient’s perception of the success of the surgery.

    Where to stay:
    If you live some distance from the clinic we recommend that you spend one night in or near Oslo Plastic Surgery Clinic so that our caring staff are on hand to reassure you should any issue arise that will cause you concern. Oslo Plastic Surgery Clinic can highly recommend 2 hotels nearby to our clinic:

    Hotel Gabelshus, Gabelsgate 16 or Frogner House Hotel Norum, Bygdøy Allé 53.

    Contact us for more information and/or for booking the hotel.

    After Surgery:

    We will require you to come to the clinic for a follow up check. With all surgery this is important as your surgeon needs to see how you are settling.

    We do not recommend you fly for 48 hours post surgery. You may feel nauseous and tired in the hours following surgery. It is important to take your painkillers and drink enough fluids.

    You may experience dizziness if you get up quickly from a chair or perhaps when you are lying in bed, so be sensible, take it easy and move slowly. This is quite normal following surgery and should pass within a couple of days. A special garment is applied for 6 weeks.

    Follow ups will be carried out at the clinic/alternatively through phone or video consultation:
    1 day after surgery, after 1-2 weeks, after 3-6 months and finally after 1 year when our guarantee to you is completed.
    Bleeding and infection are unusual and if they do occur they may need to be treated with a small operation and/or an antibiotic.  If corrections are needed they will be scheduled free of charge within one year after your surgery. Anaesthesia allergy is extremely rare.
