Thigh Lift

What are the potential risks of thighplasty?

All invasive surgical procedures carry risks and will be discussed during your consultation. Potential risks associated with a thighplasty can include:

  • Bleeding or infection.
  • Fluid accumulation (seroma)
  • Deep vein thrombosis 
  • Fatty tissue under the skin might die (fat necrosis)
  • Delayed wound healing 
  • Numbness or changes in skin sensation 
  • Scarring. This is inevitable with any surgical procedure.
  • Possibility of revisional surgery
  • Recurrent looseness of skin especially with subsequent further weight change 
  • Skin discolouration and swelling
