This appearance in the upper leg, also called thigh sagging, can be completely corrected by surgical intervention. Your doctor plans the thigh lifting procedure according to the severity of the deformation on the leg. After this procedure, you will have the tight and healthy-looking legs you want.
Process of Thigh Lift Operation
Thigh lift aesthetics is performed under general anesthesia. Defective areas are marked in the leg area before the operation. Excess skin is removed from the groin line to the inner side of the leg and lifting is applied. The skin on the inner surface of the leg is pulled upwards and sutures are made over the groin line. In some patients, liposuction can be applied in addition to leg stretching. The operation is completed in about 2 hours and the patient stays in the hospital for 1 night.
