Thighs lifting

Lifting the thigh consists of the ascension of the thighs tissue, especially of the posteriour and internal areas, and excising the excess skin. A scar remains in the groin and / or subfesier ditch area.

This surgery addresses patients with a large internal region of the thighs with lax skin, but also applies to the anterior and posterior thighs. It applies to both women and men. The results are better if the skin laxity is reduced.

The surgery is performed under general anesthesia and may be associated with lifting the other areas and with liposuction or lipectomia.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long is the recovery period after the thighs lifting surgery?

The recovery after surgery lasts 12 to 14 days, interval in which most stitches should be removed. After this period the patient can clean the operated area with warm water and soap, without removing any rush scabs. After all the scabs have fallen, scar modeling products can be used with application for a long time. Intense physical efforts, if any, may be resumed after 5-6 weeks. It is very important that the patient complies with the indication of wear an elastic garment for two months postoperatively. There are also recommended erdermologic massage sessions done manually in order to obtain a more uniform result.

How will the thighs lifting postoperative scar look like?

The scars will be placed mainly in the groin area, at the boundary of the internal region of the thighs skin and vulvar or perineal region. If you also ascend the front of the thighs, the scar can go above the pubic area, sometimes extending to the side, in a region that can be hidden by the swimming suite (scars similar to those caused by abdominoplasty).

In the case of lifting the tissue from the posterior region of the thighs, the scar is extended back and will be "hidden" in the ditch under the buttocks. If the skin excess is very large, the scars described above will be associated with another vertical scar that will be positioned on the inner thigh.

What do I need to know about the thighs lifting postoperative care?

Immediately after the procedure you need to follow an antibiotics, anti-inflammatory and painkiller course, mandatory for about 1 week.

For the rest of the skin it is advisable to use a cream enriched with vitamin E.

From the second week after the surgery you can begin an endermology treatment, first over the elastic garment and then, from week 4, over the special endermology suit . The intensity of the massage will be adjusted so that it is below the pain.
