What happens during a thigh lift at Cadogan Clinic?

This operation is carried out under a general anaesthetic and involves removing excess skin along the inner thighs and then suturing the incision site back together. This treatment is very often combined with liposuction to achieve optimal contours and often to reduce the size of the outer thigh or saddle-bag area.  Due to the large area covered and the length of wound, the procedure can be time-consuming and can take up to two hours to complete.  The incision is stitched with dissolvable stitches and surgical tapes are applied as well as bandages which are placed around the thighs to increase compression.
