This procedure is performed to recover sagging in the thigh (leg) region after excessive weight gain and loss.
Thigh stretching surgery (leg stretching surgery) is an operation that takes 2-3 hours on average and is performed under general anesthesia. After a detailed examination, the technique to be used is determined, and according to this technique, incisions can be made from the inner part of your groin area or under your hip crease.
From these incisions made to recover the sagging legs (thighs), the skin and fat tissues that cause sagging are removed by stretching, and the closing process is performed so that scars remain in the body folds.
After the thigh lift surgery (leg lift surgery), your hospital stay is, on average, 2-3 days, and the accumulated blood, serum, etc., in the operation area. You can be discharged after your collecting drains are removed. Your return to normal life (comfortable walking and sitting) is possible 7-10 days after thigh lift surgery.
Wearing a corset for two months after thigh lift surgery is recommended, and it takes an average of 2 months for the scars to return to standard skin color.
