As a result of aging and weight alteration, loosening and sagging occur especially the inner thighs of most women. Especially when you wear skirt, the inner surfaces of the thighs rub against each other during the walking, resulting in sweating and rashes.
Along with such troubles, loosening on the inner side of the thigh which creates an aesthetically unpleasant appearance can be corrected. In fact, it is the best and sole solution for all women complaining of such problems.
If you plan to have thigh lift surgery in Dubai, here, you will find out all the information you need.
For those women who have a fat deposit on the inner side of the thigh without loosening and sagging, liposuction surgery is a proper method which does not create a surgical scar. If the skin has not lost its elasticity, it is feasible to remove the fat with liposuction.
However, liposuction is not a proper method if the skin has lost its elasticity due to aging. In such cases, fat removal together with the skin for tightening is more useful.
The thigh lift procedure also takes place as a part of total body lift after weight loss. Post-bariatric patients who complaints of inner thigh loosening get benefit most.
The inner thigh is one of the most affected areas showing up the evidence of aging and weight loss. The degree and extension of skin loosening vary. For this reason there are two designs:
In horizontal thigh lift surgery, I remove the skin excess below the groin fold. Afterward, I pull the lower edge upward and suture it to the upper edge on the groin fold. Thus, the surgical scar settles down the groin fold. So that, I take care to design the surgical scar in a manner covered by the bikini. In some carefully selected patients, liposuction is useful combination.
When the loose skin extends towards the knee on the inner aspect of the thigh, thigh lift surgery also requires additional to horizontal lifting. In severe loosening cases, a two-dimensional lifting procedure provides a more satisfactory result.
Posterior thigh lift surgery aims to correct the skin loosening on the rear part of the thigh.
I incise the skin throughout the fold, which separates the buttock and thigh. Afterward, I divide the skin and fat layer together from the muscles downwardly. Thus skin becomes more free for lifting. I tighten the skin upwards as much as it can be and remove the excess part of the skin and fat layer. Before closing the incision, I suspend the lower edge of the incision to the buttock muscle. Suspension of thigh skin provides the result’s permanency. In the end, I close the skin with hidden and absorbable stitches.
The thigh lift surgery requires general anesthesia in a fully equipped hospital. It lasts 2-3 hours. You may leave the hospital on the next day.
The pain you will feel is not severe. However the painkillers control your pain. You will be able to mobilize 2-3 hours after procedure.
Swelling and bruising on the inner surface of the thigh may occur. Swelling and bruising which will disappear in 7-10 days on the inner surface of the thigh may occur.
You will feel as good as you can travel 3-4 days after thigh lift surgery.
You may take a shower 2-3 days after procedure. The recovery period varies from person to person, and you will recover in 7-10 days.
I always stitch the skin with absorbable and hidden sutures, so you will not feel stitch removal stress.
You will be able to begin heavy work and sportive activities 4 weeks after surgery.
The complication rates thigh lift are the compilation of medical literature data. The rates may vary depending on the patient’s medical conditions and BMI. That does not mean you will experience all those complications.
Smoking, diabetes and obesity are the risk factors of wound dehiscence, skin necrosis and infection. Decreased blood perfusion of the skin predisposes such complications. I recommend patients to stop smoking 1-2 weeks before the surgery. Antibiotic medication minimizes the infection risk.
Seroma (fluid collection inside the wound) stops in a couple of weeks after surgery.
Increased skin tension after tightening may lead to poor scarring and scar migration that may need revision. Although the procedure leaves a surgical scar in short term, the scar gradually fades, and the obtained results are quite satisfying.
In case of any complication, it may bother you, prolong the recovery period. However, it can be managed and treated as well.
IMPORTANT ! Before getting the appointment, check your medical conditions yourself.
