What is a Thigh Lift?

A thigh lift is performed under general anesthesia

You will normally have an overnight stay in hospital

It typically involves a long scar going down the inside seam of the thigh

Very rarely will a more listed incision go along the groin crease (pant line), as Dr. Faisal feels the results are less satisfactory

Dr. Faisal will mark out the skin to be excised as an ellipse. These markings will be finalized in theatre

Before removing the skin, Dr. Faisal will perform liposuction on the thigh  if necessary

He will then focus the liposuction on the area of the skin excision. By performing liposuction here and making the skin excision less traumatic, he reduces post-operative problems such as fluid collection, blood vessel damage, and nerve injury

The skin is then carefully closed with dissolvable sutures and glue. The thighs are then wrapped in a dressing

What Is The Recovery For A Thigh Lift?

For thigh lift surgery, you will awake with mild to moderate amounts of pain. The skin excision is not particularly painful., and most of the discomfort is localized to the liposuction areas

Swelling occurs immediately after the procedure. The dressings will provide compression, and after these are removed a specialist compression garment will be applied. Your legs will be elevated to utilize gravity to alleviate the swelling

Dr. Faisal will not use any drains in the surgery and expects you to mobilize almost immediately. It is normal to have a feeling of tightness

You will be given pain killers and antibiotics on your discharge

Dr. Faisal will review you in the clinic on day 4. He will remove the dressing and perform an early wound check. The compression garment will be then applied

Further clinic appointments will be organized for 1 week, 2 weeks, 4 weeks, and 8 weeks

Driving can be resumed at 2 weeks

You will be able to return to work at 10-14 days

You will be able to return to the gym at 8 weeks

Start taking Arnica tablets 1 week leading up to the operation. This will reduce bruising after the operation

Avoid any heavy exercise 5 days before the operation

I had breast augmentation surgery with Dr Faisal and I honestly couldn’t recommend him enough. The whole process from consultation to aftercare appointments was professional, caring and to the highest standard. He listened to what I wanted and the results are incredible. I would have any future treatments done by Dr Faisal and would send anyone I know to him also.

Been looking for doctors over years now both in Dubai and India. Never felt fully comfortable with anyone to go forward with the procedure, then I came across Dr. Faizal, found him while I was doing research online and read a lot of positive reviews. Went down for a consultation, a really gem of a person. Immediately felt comfortable, he explained me everything in detail, assured me and got exactly what I wanted and the price was reasonable as well. The hospital the surgery was held at had the best services and staff as well. They took care of everything and made me feel safe and comfortable throughout the procedure. Came back home the same day, I'm at 6 weeks post op now, and the healing is wonderful and now I feel much more confident, all thanks to him. If anyone is looking for a breast augmentation, I would definitely suggest to go for a consultation with him and decide for themselves.
good choice

Having done a lot of research and looked around Dubai for the best possible option for us, we found Dr Faisal, and I'm so glad we did! The non judgemental and honest advice throughout as well as his pre and post op care is incredible and has been there every step of the way for me. Thank you so much Dr Faisal for everything :).

I came to Dr.Faisal not sure of anything. I wasn’t happy with my body as I had a lot of excess skin due to massive weight loss. I was scared of the idea of a surgery, so came in hoping for an alternative. Here I am months - 3 months post my surgery, wearing a pair of jeans that would have never fit me before. I had a lower body lift surgery done, and I must say my results are amazing. My body has changed so much, and I am very very happy with the way I look now. Dr.Faisal is a great doctor. He will make sure you are aware of everything before and after the procedure and is always there for his patients. My favorite trait about him is that he is always available. Being a patient who has low pain tolerance, and someone who worries a lot, I would always call him. I would have a lot to ask before and after the surgery- and he was always there. It didn’t matter what day or time it was, he made sure to help with every little thing and I am very grateful for him. Thank you doctor, I can now sit without having layers of my stomach falling down, I can now wear my clothes much more confidently and can finally say I love my body.

I can’t recommend Dr Faisal enough, he gets me the results I want every time. He answers all of my questions in depth and explains how and why he does things and makes me feel comfortable. I wouldn’t go to anyone else!

Two words to describe my experience with Dr. Faisal: life changing. I had a breast reduction and it has changed my life! The procedure itself was painful for the first 2 hours and much to my surprise I was ready to go home only 4 hours after waking up and ready to return to work only 3 days later. My back, neck and shoulders feel great, my posture is better and I couldn't be happier! I recommend Dr. Faisal and the surgery 100%, my only regret is not finding him 10 years sooner! Thank you Doc!!

Dr Faisal is a skilled surgeon who is extremely meticulous and I would highly recommend him. He has a pleasant and calm demeanor which puts you at ease. He looks at the whole person and what they want to achieve and relays realistically what can be done which helps set the right level of expectation from the outset. He shows compassion throughout the process which makes you feel like you are in good hands. Overall Dr Faisal exceeded my expectations and I am so pleased with my results!
