Diet and exercise may not result in the toned thighs you want. West Coast Plastic Surgery is proud to be a leading provider of thigh lift surgeries in Perth, helping individuals like you to achieve a slimmer, more proportionate body contour.


A thigh lift, also known as thighplasty, is a surgical procedure specifically designed to remove excess skin and fat from the thighs. This results in a tighter, smoother, and more aesthetically pleasing thigh area that better fits your body frame and personal style.


A thigh lift contours your thighs by removing excess fat and skin. Your thighs and lower body will look more proportionate and tighter with a thigh lift. Thigh lifts do not target pure fat loss. It is possible to remove inner thigh fat through liposuction alone in areas where the skin is elastic and can naturally conform to new body contours.

Benefits of Thigh Lift Surgery

Undergoing a thigh lift surgery can offer a plethora of benefits, both physical and emotional. These benefits can significantly enhance your quality of life, making this surgical procedure a worthwhile investment in your wellbeing.

The Thigh Lift Procedure

A thigh lift surgery involves multiple stages, from initial consultation to recovery. Here’s a step-by-step guide to the procedure, so you know what to expect on your transformation journey.


Initial Consultation


When you visit our clinic for a thigh lift consultation, our primary goal is to understand you and your unique needs. The consultation process starts with a private, one-on-one conversation with Dr Qadir Khan. He will take the time to understand your medical history, lifestyle habits, and personal aesthetic goals. Feel free to discuss what you hope to achieve from the thigh lift surgery, your concerns about the procedure, and any questions you may have.


Next, Dr Khan will conduct a thorough physical examination to assess your thighs’ current condition. This may include measuring or photographing your thighs for your medical record. He will evaluate factors like the amount of excess skin, the presence of fat deposits, and your skin’s elasticity. Based on this comprehensive evaluation, Dr Khan will provide an honest appraisal of what can be achieved with thigh lift surgery. He will explain the surgical process in detail, including the technique he recommends, the type of anesthesia to be used, the location of the incisions, and potential risks and complications.


At the end of the consultation, a personalised surgical plan will be developed that aligns with your aesthetic goals while ensuring your safety and wellbeing. You’ll also receive information about the cost of the procedure. Remember, the consultation is your opportunity to express your expectations and concerns. We encourage open communication and want you to leave the consultation feeling informed, reassured, and confident about your decision.


Pre-Operative Preparation


In preparation for the surgery, you’ll be given specific instructions regarding diet, medication, and lifestyle habits like smoking. Adhering to these guidelines is critical to minimise complications and promote a smoother recovery.


Surgery Day


On the day of surgery, you’ll be administered general anesthesia to ensure comfort throughout the procedure. Dr Khan will then make precise incisions in your thighs, either in the groin area or extending down to the knee, depending on the amount of skin and fat to be removed.


Excess skin and fat are carefully removed, and the remaining skin is tightened to create a smooth and refined contour. Once the reshaping process is complete, the incisions are sutured and bandaged. The procedure typically takes between 2 to 3 hours, but this can vary based on the specifics of your surgical plan.


Recovery Process


After the surgery, you’ll likely experience some bruising, swelling, and discomfort in the treated area. These are normal postoperative symptoms and can be managed with prescribed pain medication.


A compression garment may be recommended to support the new contours of your thighs and minimise swelling. Most patients can return to light activities within a week or two, but strenuous activities and exercise should be avoided for about six weeks or as advised by Dr Khan. Follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor your progress and ensure a smooth healing process. During these appointments, any sutures will be removed, and you’ll be provided with instructions for scar care to ensure minimal visible scarring.


Every patient’s experience varies, and it’s crucial to remember that recovery takes time. Patience, proper post-operative care, and following Dr Khan’s instructions can lead to beautiful, long-lasting results. At West Coast Plastic Surgery, we’re committed to providing comprehensive care at every step of your thigh lift journey, ensuring a safe and successful procedure and recovery.


The cost of thigh lift surgery can vary depending on a number of factors. At West Coast Plastic Surgery, we provide a detailed estimate following your consultation with Dr Khan. Please note that the cost includes surgeon’s fees, anaesthetist fees, hospital fees, and any required post-operative garments.

Like all surgical procedures, a thigh lift involves some risks, including infection, poor wound healing, bleeding, deep vein thrombosis, swelling, asymmetry, hypertrophic scars, and changes in skin sensation. However, these risks are minimised through the expertise of Dr Khan, our stringent surgical protocols, and your adherence to pre and post-operative instructions.

The duration of a thigh lift surgery varies based on the extent of the procedure but typically lasts between 2 to 3 hours.

Thigh lift surgery is typically performed under general anaesthesia, ensuring you are comfortable and feel no pain during the procedure.

Incisions are a necessary part of thigh lift surgery and do result in some scarring. However, Dr Khan utilises advanced techniques to place incisions in discrete locations, usually within the natural creases of the body, to minimise visible scarring. Post-operative scar care instructions and possible treatments will also be provided to further help reduce the appearance of scars.

Recovery varies from patient to patient, but you can expect to return to light activities within 1-2 weeks post-surgery. Swelling and bruising are common but will gradually subside. A compression garment may need to be worn for several weeks to support the healing tissues.

There’s no strict age limit for a thigh lift, but candidates should be in good health, have realistic expectations, and preferably be non-smokers. Thigh lift surgery is often sought by patients who have experienced significant weight loss, ageing, or simply wish to improve the shape and contour of their thighs. The suitability of the procedure for a person is ultimately determined during a comprehensive consultation with Dr Khan.
