Thigh lift

The  lift leg  is surgery that removes and tightens the loose and hanging skin on the inner thighs, the mirovouvoniki aspect breeches. This excess of the skin can result from weight loss, age or after liposuction.

The operation briefly

The  lift thigh  removes the loose skin on the upper thigh, leaving a scar that is hidden in the crease of the groin. The scar is always transverse and semicircular in this aspect. If loose skin extends to the knee, a vertical extension inside the thigh may be needed, such as suturing the trousers, leaving a T-shaped scar. In most cases, we also combine liposuction on the inner surface of the thighs.

A pressure corset will be worn for 3-4 weeks. Sports activities will resume after 4 weeks.

Sections

The? Northosi thigh  by incising hidden in skin fold. When extended to the knee, the T-shaped incision is hidden inside the thigh. These incisions fade over time. They will initially be pink in the first few weeks, but then fade to white. The use of a special laser but also special films and silicone gel will help a lot . Most patients will develop extremely good quality scars over time.

Drugs / Smoking

The  lift thigh  needs proper preparation, like any surgery. 

It is always better if you do not smoke. If you are a smoker try to quit smoking for 4 weeks before and 4 weeks after surgery. If you can not quit smoking, you will definitely be able to reduce the number of cigarettes you smoke per day to 5, which will significantly reduce the chances of complications (bruises, bruises, swelling).

Do not take herbal medicines for about 10 days before surgery or for 3 days after (arnica etc.). Also avoid aspirin (salospir), 7-10 days preoperatively, and anti-inflammatory 3-4 days preoperatively. 

Complications

The following are the most common but there are others that are mentioned in the international literature. 

Wound dissection : mainly in large skin removal and is avoided with conservative skin removal.

Skin necrosis : as above. It is usually treated conservatively with trauma changes and will rarely require reoperation.

Serum color / collection : although drainage is commonly used, it occurs in the 2nd-3rd week. Needed needle aspiration or infrequent reoperation.

Hematoma : as above.

Bleeding : very rare but requires immediate reoperation.
