Cosmetic Surgeon of the year finalist 2018

Thigh Reduction

Thigh Lift (excision) + Thigh Reduction (liposuction)

Thigh lift (cutting away) removes excess skin and fat from both the inside and the outside of the upper thigh, if required. The excess skin and fatty tissue is cut away and so dramatic recontouring can be achieved, at the expense of a scar. However, the scar is placed in the groin crease so rarely is an issue in terms of post operative appearance. This surgery is often requested after significant weight loss or with general ageing when the elastic nature of the skin decreases and allows sagging in this area. Either reason is enough to consider the surgery and we will discuss the pros and cons of surgical reduction so that a clear understanding is achieved.

Thigh reduction (liposuction) improves the body contour when seen through slacks or tight dresses. In this instance, liposuction alone may be ideal, but for this procedure to be successful the skin must still have reasonable tone, as the skin will need to tighten and recoil in the weeks following liposuction to give the smoothest final contour.

Light dressings are removed at one week after both procedures and refreshed. It is possible with modern dressings to shower almost immediately after surgery. We will provide you, as part of our package price, with a supportive elasticated dressing which we recommend to be worn under clothes for 4-6 weeks following surgery. Normal activities can be undertaken straight away but more energetic exercise is restarted after one month.

I chose Mr Armstrong to carry out my facelift surgery after a lot of extensive and careful research. I was impressed with his academic credentials and his professional experience, noting that he had worked in some of the most prestigious medical institutions.

At my first consultation with Mr Armstrong I felt totally reassured that I would be in a safe pair of hands by the clarity with which he described all aspects of the facelift procedure I was requesting.  He explained everything to me in a clear and precise manner and in an unrushed and very thorough way. Together we agreed the best procedure for me, a 63 year old woman, would be a facelift plus an upper eyelid reduction and fat transfers to my cheeks, nasolabial lines and marionette lines.

I am now three weeks post-operation and the results have far exceeded my expectations.  I am absolutely thrilled with the results. I still look like me but a younger fresher version.  My droopy eyelids and hanging jowls have gone and my face and eyes look energised and revitalised.  My friends have been amazed at the transformation with one describing me as looking "sensational"!

Mr Armstrong's care before, during and after the procedure has been exemplary, and, along with his nursing staff,  I was thoroughly well looked after in a most kind, caring and professional manner.

I highly recommend Mr Armstrong to anybody considering surgery.  He is a highly skilled surgeon with a  safe and competent pair of hands.  My only regret is that I didn't do it five years earlier.
