Thigh Lift by experienced Plastic Surgeons


Thigh Lift in Istanbul, Turkey by experienced Plastic Surgeons.

From the age of 40 onwards, slim legs in women can not be achieved and that causes an inelastic skin. The most common reason for thigh lift is the sagging of the skin on the inside of the thighs. This hanging saggy tissue does not look nice and also causes hygienic problems in everyday life. Before a thigh lift the patient should achieve her ideal weight with dietary and sporting activities.

The operation methods of a Thigh Lift

For young women liposuction is often sufficient to remove excess fat from the thighs, because their skin has sufficient elasticity. It is just the opposite for the women after 40 years old and the rubbing of the inner thigh bothers some women as they walk.

If the skin and connective tissues are sagging, then the excess skin needs to be treated surgically by removing of fat and lifting of the saggy skin. Therefore in thigh lift, both a liposuction and the tightening of the inelastic skin can be necessary.

Immediately prior to surgery the excess skin is measured, the amount of skin to be removed is assessed and marked. A vertical scar on the inside of the thighs occurs usually after the procedure, which is not visible from the front.

Follow-Up after a thigh lift operation

Wearing a compression garment is recommended after surgery for 4 weeks and scar ointments are helpful in scar therapy. The risks and side effects can be similar to other operations, e.g. redness, swelling, bruising, but also broad scar. Especially risky is a thigh lift, if the cuts are in the area of the groin, because here it may cause a very large tension and it can result the tearing of the wounds.
