What is a thigh lift?
The aim of a thigh lift is to tighten the skin on the inside of the thigh. The intervention corrects your figure by lifting the skin of the upper legs. This is especially appropriate for people who have lost weight and have excess skin in this area. When the skin loses its elasticity, the excess needs to be measured very precisely to prevent the scar from widening due to tension. It is important that the surgeon leaves enough skin so that the hips can still perform all movements without discomfort.
In some cases, sagging skin may cause functional difficulties. It can, for example, impede walking and irritate the skin between the legs.
What is the procedure?
The intervention takes place under general anaesthesia. The surgeon removes excess skin and fatty tissue on the inner thighs and then tightens the skin. The incision is usually made in the groin and on the inside of the thigh, down to the knee. This technique allows the tightening of the skin in two directions.
After the procedure?
The healing of the wound can sometimes be difficult, especially where the two scars meet. It is a hot and humid area prone to infections. If the excess skin has been measured properly and if there were no complications, scarring will be very limited.
