Upper thigh lift

A thigh lift is an aesthetic procedure that aims to remove excess skin and fatty tissue from the thighs and improve the contour of the legs. This treatment is often used for people who have sagging or drooping skin on the thighs due to weight loss, ageing or genetic predisposition.


The procedure of a thigh lift usually begins with a thorough examination and consultation with Dr. Adžemović. During this consultation, your individual needs, expectations and medical requirements will be discussed. He will explain the exact procedure of the operation and answer all your questions.

The actual thigh lift is usually performed under general anaesthesia. Dr Adžemović makes an incision along the inside of the thigh to remove excess skin and fatty tissue. Depending on the need, liposuction may also be performed to further improve the contour. After the excess tissue is removed, the incisions are carefully sutured and a compression bandage or garment is applied to aid healing and optimise the result.

The recovery time after a thigh lift can be several weeks. Swelling, bruising and mild pain may occur in the first few days after the procedure. Dr Adžemović will give you instructions on how to care for the wounds, relieve pain and support healing. It is important to take it easy physically and limit certain activities for the first few weeks after the operation.

The results of a thigh lift are usually long-lasting, provided you maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle. You will enjoy a firmer and better defined contour of your thighs, which contributes to an overall improved body image and self-confidence.



After a thigh lift, there are scars that start on the inner thigh and extend towards the knee. The length of the scars depends on individual factors such as your wishes and the extent of the excess skin.
It should be noted, however, that the scars will fade significantly over time. They are usually well hidden by clothing such as knee-length skirts or shorts and are therefore hardly visible in everyday life.

To support scar healing, I recommend applying a greasy cream or silicone-containing scar gel regularly from the fifteenth day after the operation. This can help the scars to fade more quickly. In addition, it is important to protect the scars from direct sunlight for the first six to twelve months. To do this, use either clothing or a sun lotion with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 50. This reduces the risk of scarring and supports good scar healing.
It is advisable to discuss postoperative scar care with Dr Adžemović for specific instructions and recommendations for your individual situation. Consistent adherence to the care routine and protection from sun exposure can minimise the visibility of scars and help you achieve an optimal aesthetic result.

  1. Rest and recovery: After surgery, it is important to get enough rest and stay away from physical exertion. Dr Adžemović will give you instructions on post-operative recovery, including recommendations on sleeping position and activity restrictions.
  2. Wearing compression garments: Dr Adžemović will recommend that you wear compression garments after your thigh lift. This specially designed garment supports healing, reduces swelling and promotes better contouring of the thighs.
    Follow Dr Adžemović’s instructions regarding the duration and wearing of the compression garment.
  3. Avoid exposure to sunlight: During the first months after the thigh lift, you should avoid direct sunlight on the operated region. The sun can affect scarring and cause pigmentary changes. Wear a sunscreen with a high sun protection factor (SPF) when exposed to the sun and protect the treated skin with clothing.
  4. Follow up appointments and instructions: It is important to attend regular follow-up appointments with Dr Adžemović. He will monitor the healing process, perform dressing changes and give you further instructions for the care and protection of the operated areas. Follow these instructions carefully to achieve the best possible results and minimise potential complications.
  5. Be patient: Full recovery after a thigh lift may take several weeks to months. Be patient and give your body enough time to recover and achieve the desired results. Avoid excessive physical exertion and make sure you get enough rest to support healing.
