The thigh lift is a very suitable intervention when the skin of the thigh area loses its vigor. Also, women are more likely to store fat on the inner and outer thighs.

Thigh lift surgical techniques

Almost always, a  prior liposuction is performed  to remove excessive adipose tissue. Liposuction can be performed on the entire circumference and length of the thigh. In the event that there is a surplus of dermis, the thigh lift procedure may be performed in the same intervention. Depending on the shape and size of the leg and the excess skin, we will choose the most appropriate specific lifting technique (one- or two-dimensional).

In patients with cellulite we will evaluate the complementary procedures with the appropriate equipment to improve the quality of the skin of the thighs.

Where is the scar from a thigh lift located?

In the case of a unilateral facelift, the scar will be uniform in the area of ​​the inguinal fold and as small as possible, being able to hide it under underwear or a swimsuit.

Only in patients who have a greater amount of excess skin, a vertical scar will be extended from the inner area of ​​the thigh in a T-shape (two-dimensional).

In order to obtain scars that are as invisible as possible, we will apply a meticulous cure using, if necessary, laser procedures and dermatological treatments .

Postoperative care after a thigh lift intervention

In general, we carry out a transient paralysis at the local level of the sensitive nerves, reducing postoperative discomfort. The sutures we use are absorbable so it is not necessary to remove stitches. However, after this type of surgery, we recommend a post-intervention lymphatic drainage.  (DMO Clinique)
We will provide all our patients   with a custom girdle for 6 weeks. We advise avoiding sports activities that involve weight lifting during this period.
