Thigh Lift

When people experience excessive weight loss, fatty and sagging skin may occur in the thigh area after pregnancy or with their age.

This situation may cause the patient to be aesthetically discontent and also to have problems while walking. Patients who have these complaints are recommended a thigh lift surgery.

How is thigh lift surgery performed?

In certain cases where the skin quality is good and there is some excessive fat but no sagging skin, liposuction alone is sufficient. However, if there is a sagging skin with excess fat tissue, leg lift surgery is necessary.

If the excess skin is only in the groin area, it can be stretched and tightened up, leaving a limited scar that can be hidden by underwear. However in most cases, the excess skin is in a form of bagging from the groin to the inner thigh. In this case, the thigh lifting procedure is performed by leaving a vertical scar in the leg that extends from the groin all the way through the inner thigh. This scar is hard to be noticed as it is located in the inner thigh. The important criteria here is your skin quality, your general condition and the technique that the doctor will prefer for the best result.

What to expect after a thigh lift surgery?

Thigh lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia in hospital environment and it takes nearly 1-2 hours. Patient can be discharged after spending 1 or 2 nights in the hospital. All the surgical drains are removed 1 day after the surgery and 2 days after patient can have a bath. A special compression corset is prescribed by the surgeon to the patient. It is recommended that patient should prefer wearing cotton clothes. Surgeon utilizes dissolvable sutures so there will be no need of removal. Patient should wait 4 to 6 weeks until he/she can do sports and physical activity. The final result is usually achieved in 6 months.
