As all of the lifting surgeries, thigh lift surgery that is one of the operations performed for correction of the body lines has also found quite favor in our age. The most important underlying reasons are getting successful results and that the results obtained protect themselves for long years in general. In the body contour shaping, the body should be evaluated as a whole, and it should be taken care of the proportions between regions. In the contrary, the success obtained will be insufficient and will not satisfy.
Evaluation Before Thighplasty
Sagging occurs in inner part of the upper leg depending on aging, frequent gain and loss of weight, and the gravity. The amount of fatty tissue accumulated with the sagging in legs differs personally. While the fatty tissue quite decreased in some patients, and sometimes it may continue to still remain an intense fatty tissue. For this reason, each patient should be evaluated separately. The thigh lift surgery can be performed singly, or with abdominoplasty, breast reductionor lifting, arm lift and liposuction that are other lifting surgeries.
The Scars Left Behind After Thighplasty
It is paid attention to the amount of fatty tissues in the inner and back parts of the leg and the level of sagging in the evaluation before thighplasty. Moreover, detailed information about the scar to be formed after surgery and its place is given to the patient. The scar is left in the inner part of the leg and in the inguinal region in the thigh lift surgeries. These regions are the less apparent places when looking from the outside. Sometimes, in these surgeries it is also possible to extend the scar towards buttocks/hip without going down between the legs. The scar to be chosen depends on your state and the technique of thigh lift surgery your surgeon will perform.

However, if there is skin sagging with the excess fatty tissue, thighplasty is definitely required. The thigh lift surgery can be performed with general anesthesia. The sagging skin and fatty tissue in excess are excised from the inner and back parts of the leg. If necessary, liposuction is also performed in other areas of the leg in the same surgery. Especially, applying liposuction in other parts of the leg will provide both the leg to seem much thinner, and also much more skin to be lifted.
The area of incision is sutured as two layers; the leg is bandaged with a soft dressing at the end of the surgery. The patient can be discharged from hospital after 1 day. The patients return their daily activities after 4-5 days, and the sutures heal after about 10 days. It is necessary to use corset during 1 month. The surgical scar starts to fade from 1 month, and the clarity completely disappears after 1 year. The patients will stay away from the sports for 1 month after this surgery, and it should be protected from the sun until the surgical scars fade.
The prices of thigh lift surgery vary depending on the level of sagging in your legs, existence of the fatty tissue in legs, whether liposuction will be applied additionally or not, and the technique of the surgery chosen. For the price/cost information you should get examined by your doctor.
