Thigh Lift – Dr. Karaaltın Clinic

Thigh Lift

A thigh lift improves the contours of the thighs and may be performed in combination with liposuction and other body lifts.

Thigh lift surgery reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin, and in some cases fat, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body. If fitness and weight loss efforts have not achieved your goals for a body that is firmer, more youthful-looking and more proportionate to your overall body image, a surgical lift may be right for you.

Thigh lift surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia and takes between 2-3 hours. To perform the surgery your surgeon will make an incision around the top of the thigh before pulling the excess skin upwards, stitching it into its new position and trimming the excess. The result is smoother thighs that show the results of your weight loss.

The results of a thigh lift are visible almost immediately. However, it may take several months for the final results to fully develop. Following a thigh lift, skin quality is dramatically improved both in appearance and feel. Some visible scars will remain, but the overall results are long lasting, provided that you maintain a stable weight and general fitness. As your body ages, it is natural to lose some firmness. However, most of your initial improvement should be relatively permanent.

A thigh lift reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin, and in some cases fat, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body. When performing the lift, a surgeon may remove either inner thigh skin or outer thigh skin.

If your weight is relatively stable, if you have realistic expectations and if fitness and weight loss efforts have not helped achieved your goals, a surgical thigh lift may be right for you.

If you have one or more feelings or conditions, you are a good candidate for a thigh lift surgery:

*You have excess soft tissue along inner or outer thigh region

*You are bothered by sagging on your thigh

*You desire a firmer thigh, more youthful looking and more proportionate body image

You and your doctor will discuss all details of your surgery and decide together. You can directly share your complaints and concerns about your thigh’s look with your doctor and also your doctor will share his objective ideas about your arm lift surgery. Maybe your doctor will offer you liposuction together with thigh lift. So this is an interactive process that your happiness and healthiness is a priority.

When your surgery is complete, dressing or bandages may be applied to your incisions. A compression garment is often used to minimize swelling and support the new contour of your thighs as you heal. One or more small, thin tubes may be temporarily placed under the skin to drain excess fluid or blood that may collect.

Our doctor will give you all instructions to follow after your discharge. During follow-up process doctor will make at least two consultations before you return back to your country. Please note that there maybe some scars after your surgery but our surgeons will take care to ensure that scars are minimum. Most of scars will be hidden in 1 year time.
