Thigh Lift Procedure with Dr. Sof


Considering a thigh lift to achieve firmer, more toned thighs? Discover what to expect when you choose Dr. Sofiane Rimouche for your thigh lift journey:

Consultation and Evaluation: Your thigh lift journey begins with a comprehensive consultation with Dr. Sof. During this initial meeting, Dr. Sof will listen attentively to your concerns, assess your thigh anatomy, and discuss your goals for thigh contouring. He will perform a thorough examination to determine if a thigh lift is the most suitable option to address your needs.

Preparation: On the day of your thigh lift procedure, you’ll arrive at the surgical facility prepared for your surgery. Dr. Sof and his team will ensure you’re comfortable and relaxed before administering anaesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.

Surgical Technique: Dr. Sof will employ advanced surgical techniques to remove excess skin and fat from the thighs, creating a smoother, more contoured appearance. Depending on your unique anatomy and aesthetic goals, Dr. Sof may recommend either an inner thigh lift, outer thigh lift, or a combination of both procedures.

Inner Thigh Lift: For patients with excess skin and fat on the inner thighs, Dr. Sof may recommend an inner thigh lift. This procedure involves making discreet incisions along the inner thigh crease to remove excess tissue and tighten the skin, resulting in improved thigh contour and definition.

Outer Thigh Lift: For patients seeking to address sagging skin and tissue on the outer thighs, Dr. Sof may recommend an outer thigh lift. This procedure involves making incisions along the outer thigh and hip area to remove excess skin and fat, creating a more streamlined appearance.

Closing Incisions and Recovery: Following the procedure, Dr. Sof will close the incisions with sutures and apply dressings as needed. You’ll be closely monitored in the recovery area before being discharged with detailed post-operative instructions. Dr. Sof will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress, address any concerns, and ensure a smooth recovery process.

Results: As you heal from the thigh lift procedure, you’ll begin to notice firmer, more toned thighs and improved overall leg contour. Dr. Sof’s approach aims to deliver natural-looking results that enhance your body shape while maintaining balance and symmetry.


Important Note from Dr. Sof: While you may observe initial improvements, the full results of your thigh lift surgery may take a few months as swelling gradually subsides.

A thigh and buttock lift, sometimes known as a lower body lift when performed together, is a way of helping to get rid of areas of sagging skin that you have not been able to shift through diet or exercise.

The procedure can take several hours, depending on how many areas of your body are being lifted and how much skin and fat is being removed.

You will have to restrict your activities initially and during recovery, the best position is to lie on your stomach or to be standing, because you should try not to sit down for a few weeks. To clean the area, you should shower daily with an antibacterial soap.
You will need to plan time off work so that you can recover at home. You will be able to return to most normal activities within two and a half weeks – including returning to work – and back to full activity in six weeks.

All patients will be given a pressure garment to wear for up to 6 weeks after the treatment.

Yes, most patients require some time off from work and other strenuous activities to allow for proper healing. Dr. Sof will provide personalised guidance on when it’s safe to resume your normal routine.
