FaceDescription: Also known as thighplasty, a thigh lift removes extra fat, tissue and skin from the thigh area, to contour and improve the look of the thighs.

How it works: There are two types of thigh lifts – inner thigh and outer thigh. An inner thigh lift involves a short, horizontal incision in the crease between the thigh and the pubic area, where the surgeon can tighten the skin. An outer thigh lift is similar, but the incision is made over the hips.

Complications: Skin sensitivity, skin discolouration and scarring can occur.

Recovery: Can take up to three months.

Cost: From $5,000 to $8,000.
