Thigh Lift (Dermolipectomy)

A thigh lift procedure (dermolipectomy) removes excess skin, usually caused by weight loss, from the inner leg region to provide a more slimming, natural contour. According to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS), nearly 11,000 (#1 in the world) thigh lift procedures were performed in Brazil in 2015. Rio de Janeiro is responsible for a significant amount of Brazil’s plastic surgery operations. Dr. Alexandre Charão has a proven high success rate among patients and works hard to understand each patient’s individual needs and aesthetic goals.

Your Initial Consultation


As you are researching a thigh lift procedure it is important for you to define your expectations. During your initial consultation, you can discuss various options which will work for your goals and current situation. To help give Dr. Alexandre Charão a clear idea of your desired results, you should provide a photo of how you would like your body to look.

Thigh Lift Techniques

To reduce the size of the scar, Dr. Alexandre Charão uses laser liposuction (SlimLipo) to treat the legs. This method quickly reduces cellulite while firming the skin. Full results from a thigh lift are usually seen after 6 months. This allows for tissues to adjust and conform to your new legs.

Hospitalization & Postoperative Recovery

Epidural anesthesia is used and hospitalization time is usually 24 hours. With over 20 years of experience, Dr. Alexandre Charão can safely discharge patients after 1 day. Following surgery, patients should avoid standing or walking. Stitches are usually placed around the groin and any excessive movements could re-open the incision line.

Total Cost and Before & After Photos

Congratulations, if you have read this far, then you are really committed to receiving a thigh lift procedure. Your next step should be to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Alexandre Charão. During this 1 hour meeting, he will disclose further details, including total cost. Most international patients can save 50-70% by traveling to Brazil for treatment.
