Thigh lift in Mexico? Other countries?



Recommended Posts

I feel like this has come at the worst possible time in my life. I'm losing my health insurance in the US due to quitting my job to start a new life in Canada. Regardless, getting plastics covered in my case would be a long shot.

So, 120 lbs lost now, and it's getting hard to stuff these baggy thighs into my jeans. The sag is strong with me.

Looking to Mexico or other countries for low-cost thigh lifts. However, it's proven difficult to find doctors that specialize in this or that show before and afters. Most of their websites are geared towards the more popular post bariatric ops, like tummy tucks and boob jobs.

Can anyone give a reference specifically for thigh lifts outside of the US/Canada? Failing that, a surgeon near Toronto that may offer low cost services?

A thigh lift is a complicated surgery usually with lackluster results.

You are not going to find many doctors that do it, fewer before and after and even less likely to be low cost.

If my thighs looked like her before I would be happy.

Yes please post! What was your cost and what type of incision did you have?

I can refer you to our FB group if you like. I personally did not get a thigh lift I had other surgeries done however there are some photos of a thigh lift on the page.

      I'm trying to give these people all my labs and it's so hard! I had to do number 2 in a bag and send it in for the lab to test it. CHILE! Why did I poop in the container and when I went to drop it off, that part of the hospital was closed?!  Sigh. AWKWARD. I'll drop it off today after work tho. Feeling great!

      Getting a little nervous about post surgery life adaptation. I really want to succeed, but habits are so hard to break.

      Good news and Meh news...
      Meh: so I think I experienced/am experiencing my first stall-ish since surgery and now I get how frustrating it can be!  So annoying to wake up every morning to watch the scale report a gain or loss of the same 1.5 pounds for over 2 weeks.  *sigh*.  Some say put the scale away, but I log my weight every morning to get a daily moving average of my weight.  So long as this moving average is not heading upwards (which it isn’t and hasn’t since post-op) then I am good with my curent “minimalist” weekly weight loss rate, however small I think it is 🙄.
      However.
      The Good news:
      To allow for some self back patting, and to remind myself of the bigger picture, I set a bunch of interim goals/milestones... a few of which are 10lbs increment weight loss goals:
      So this morning, after hovering within 1.5 pounds of an interim goal for over 2 weeks, I weighed in at 164.8, and officially lost 70 lbs!  In 4 months.  That is 30% of my starting body weight.  Or the equivalent of my 10 year old neice. How crazy is that.
      Next Goal: weigh in at 162lbs to be merely overweight (and not obese!)

      I am in the Pre-Op stage.  I have 4 more nutrition classes to go to.  I've had my endoscopy with favorable results although I was told I had an abnormal z-line.  Everything looks good so far.  Had my team appointment with the psychologist and have my pulmonologist  this week.  I chose the sleeve
