One of the most important elements of body beauty in women is the legs. Loosening and sagging in legs may occur due to weight gain or loss, birth, inactivity and aging. In addition to these disorders that may occur later, a person may also have structurally extremely thin or bowlegs. Women who have very thick, very thin, bowed or asymmetrical legs can have the legs they want with plastic surgeries.

How does thigh lift perform?

The leg area from the hip to the knee is called thigh. Saggy skin in this area is one of the most troubling issues for some people. With the thigh lift surgery, the saggy skin and fat on the upper and inner parts of the legs are removed. In thinner patients with less skin sagging, excess skin is removed, stretched and sutured, leaving a slanted scar on the inner side of the groin. In patients with excessive sagging and fat on the skin, the operation applied together with liposuction leaves a "T" shaped scar.

Bowleg Surgery: The bowleg appearance, which occurs due to the disproportionate distribution of fat in the legs, is treated by taking the intra-articular knee fat that creates the bowed image by liposuction and injecting it into the missing areas (calves). During the operation, the curvature of bones is not intervened. This treatment with fat transfer is permanent for life.

Knee Aesthetic: Knees are one of the most important parts of leg beauty. Deformation in knees can create an unsightly appearance in the entire leg. Deformities that affect leg aesthetics in knees can be caused by sagging and wrinkles due to fat accumulations or rapid weight change. Excess fat can be removed by liposuction anywhere in the knee. Sometimes, due to frequent weight change, sagging of the skin on knees, wrinkles, or protrusions on the sides of knees may occur. In order to eliminate these disorders, protrusions and excess skin can be surgically removed.

Skinny Leg Aesthetic: If the legs are extremely skinny, more shaped legs can be obtained with prosthesis placement. The size of prosthesis is determined according to the need of patient and after the doctor's control. Prostheses are placed on the lower leg (between the knee and ankle). Since the operation is performed through small incisions of 3-4 cm behind the knee, recovery time is short and the operation scar is pretty difficult to notice.

Postoperative

  • The patient can stand up on the same day of operation and only stays in the hospital for 1 night.

  • Patients can return to their regular lives within 4-5 days after the operation.

  • If stitches were applied during the operation, these areas will be recovered after 10 days.

  • Patients should use a corset with a minimum period of 1 month after the surgery. This corset will help swelling less and the skin will adhere to the subcutaneous tissues and shrink.

  • The surgical scars will start to fade at the end of first month and will mostly disappear at the end of first year.

  • There may be mild pain that can be managed by painkillers.

  • You can take a bath on the 2nd or 3rd day after the surgery.

  • Slight bruising and swelling can be observed in the inner area of legs after thigh lift and liposuction. These swellings are expected to go away completely after a few weeks.

  • It is possible to return to work 1 week after the operation.

Will there be any scar after thigh lift?


The scar that will occur after thigh lift occurs on the inside of legs and in the groin area. These areas are the least visible part of the legs.




How long does this operation last?


Although it varies according to the patient's body condition and surgical technique, these operations usually take 2 to 3 hours.




How much pain will I have after leg aesthetic operations?


Extreme pain is not felt after the operation. The pain that may occur in the first days can be managed with simple painkillers.




Who is a good candidate for thigh lift?


Especially in patients who have been treated for obesity, the diameter of thigh decreases as the weight is lost, and therefore the loosened skin cannot be sufficiently recovered and sagged. In addition to these patients, thigh lift operation can be applied to anyone with moderate and advanced laxity, slackness and excess skin in the leg skin.




Can inner thighs be corrected with only liposuction?


Liposuction alone will not be enough to tighten skin that has lost its elasticity. Thigh lift operation is the only solution for the recovery of saggy skin that has lost its elasticity.




Can liposuction be performed together with thigh lift?


The operation is performed in two steps in people who have too much fat in the thigh area. First, excess fat is removed with liposuction and the skin is expected to sag for a certain period of time. In the second operation, the saggy skin is removed with thigh lift and the combined process is completed.




Can thigh sagging be prevented with medicines and creams?


Skin can be tightened a little with special creams or medicines, but it is not possible to remove the sagging.




From what age can leg operations be performed?


Plastic surgeries to achieve leg beauty can be performed to adults of all ages who do not have a recent rapid weight change, do not have a risky medical condition, and have realistic goals for body shaping operation.




Are these operations permanent?


If excessive weight change and unhealthy living conditions are in question, it is possible to develop sagging or deformities in the leg skin again. However, the aesthetic appearance obtained in the leg does not deteriorate with a few pounds of gain or loss.
