Dr Thierry Bron - Lifting de cuisses

Thigh lift

This is an intervention to lift skin on the inner thighs, with or without liposuction to remove excess fat. The thighs are remodelled to restore a natural, slender curve.

EXTRA

Crisalix is 3D simulation software that shows the results of aesthetic surgery. This tool helps patients better express their request and enables surgeons to give clear, reasoned explanations. Patients are therefore better informed when they decide to have an operation.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

  • Are the scars visible? 
    Depending on the extent of the lift, the scars are hidden either on the inner thighs, and are hence invisible from the front, or at the root of the thighs and are hence invisible in a swimsuit.
  • Can simple liposuction suffice?
    If there is excess fat and if the skin is elastic enough, your surgeon may suggest liposuction alone. But if there is already excess, sagging skin, only a lift will give the best aesthetic result.
  • What interventions can be combined with a thigh lift?
    It can be combined with a thigh liposuction, especially if there is excess fat, which improves the aesthetic result.
