As we are aging, the elasticity of the skin declines and the skin becomes loose not only in the face, but also in the area of upper arms and thighs. There is excessive skin and subcutis upon greater weight loss as well, which is not only a bother aesthetically, but also creates hygiene problems and supports the creation of eczema.

This excess can be removed surgically, under general anaesthesia, by Upper Arm or Thigh lift surgery.

The scars after the Upper Arm or Thigh lift cosmetic surgery remain on the inner side of the arms and, with the legs, they lead from the groin towards the buttock crease.

The Upper Arm or Thigh Lift cosmetic surgery is often combined with the liposuction of the respective areas.

Hospitalisation after Upper Arm or Thigh lift cosmetic surgery abroad lasts for 2 days.

Procedure details


One or two days after the Upper Arm or Thigh lift cosmetic surgery in Prague, the plastic surgeon removes drains used to drain off the rest of the blood liquids.

The patient leaves the cosmetic surgery clinic with compression clothes on the legs; the arms dressed by an elastic roller bandage.

Concerning the arms, this re-bandaging takes place in a similar way, except only every other day and instead of using compression clothes, the arms are dressed with an elastic roller bandage.

Two weeks after the Upper Arm or Thigh lift surgery, the plastic surgeon removes the compressions, gauze and patches on both the arms and the thighs and it is possible to take a shower. It is possible that the patients remove the patches themselves in the event that they cannot come to the re-bandaging. The stitches are absorbent and they do not need to be removed.

In the case of hip liposuction being carried out as well, it is possible that tiny stitches remain on the skin, and it is recommended to remove these 14 days after the Thigh lift cosmetic surgery. Pressure massages of the scars should begin 18 days after the Upper arm or Thigh lift cosmetic surgery. A finger is used to exert pressure on the scar for 30 seconds and then the finger is moved to another place on the scar. This massage is carried out several times a day and it is also suitable to use scar creams. The patient maintains a state of rest for 14 days after the Upper Arm or Thigh lift cosmetic surgery.

With Upper Arm Lift surgery, office work is possible a week after the cosmetic surgery in Prague, with the arms being bandaged for one more week. Full physical strain of the arms is possible 4 weeks later.

With Thigh Uplift, office work is possible 14 days after the cosmetic surgery. Compression clothes are then worn for 2 more weeks, constantly, only taken off for showers. Full physical strain is possible 4 weeks after the surgery.
