Thigh Lift Surgery

Thigh Lift Surgery (Brachioplasty)

Information: Thigh lift is a surgical procedure that reshapes the inner and outer thighs by removing excess skin and fat. The surgery may also include liposuction and other body lifts, and also reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Thigh-lift surgery is generally the procedure of removing the sagging fat and excess skin in the thigh area. Thigh-lift surgery can be performed under general anaesthesia or by local anaesthesia sedation. The one-two-hour period is enough for surgery, this time may vary. It might be necessary to stay in the hospital for 1 or 2 days.

The skin and fat are removed through an incision extending from the groin area to the inner thigh. The remaining skin is stretched up and sutured to the groin area. The incision is retained in the traces of the inner part of the groin and thighs, and in time the line becomes unclear.

There is no pain felt after thigh lift operation, it is sufficient to take painkillers. The patient should avoid extreme movements for over a week since the operation is performed in the walking area. Due to the suture line is close to the urethra, it is important to avoid contact with the urine. Since the dissolvable aesthetic sutures are used, there is no need to remove the stitches. It is recommended to wear a supportive corset for 3-4 weeks.

The most important problem after surgery is the re-opening of the suture lines. This is especially observed in patients who have not had a good resting period after surgery or who do not pay attention to hygiene. This problem can usually be overcome by applying a urinary catheter and applying a waterproof dressing for the first few days after surgery.
