Thigh Stretching (Lift) Operation
Deteriorations may occur in the body due to aging, rapid weight loss and pregnancy. These deteriorations are the result of changes in the structures, shapes and arrangement of collagen and aesthetic fibers in the body. These impairments are also seen in the legs, which are the organs of the body that are limited from the groin to the sole and are used for walking. The skin on the inner parts of the thighs (upper legs) is thin. For this reason, it is more affected by natural deterioration. In this area, sagging and loosening can be seen from place to place.
Leg stretching aesthetics is an operation performed to stretch the sagging in the inner parts of the upper leg, also called “thigh”, and to remove fat accumulation. The main purpose of the leg stretching operation is not to thin the entire leg area. The operation also aims to remove the loosening of the skin on the thighs and the fluctuations in this area. In addition, aesthetic procedures such as fat removal and regional thinning can be applied during the operation, taking into account the actual procedure and the patient’s demand and skin quality. In addition, tummy tuck surgery can be added to the operation upon request.
Examination and Diagnosis
If you have answered the above questions and decided to operate, you must first be examined. During the examination, the quality of the skin, the thickness of the adipose tissue in the skin, the amount of sagging, and the patient’s expectations are observed, and then the diagnosis is made. Then, the most ideal operation technique is decided. Each patient is evaluated individually when making the diagnosis. If the amount of fat is more than sagging, liposuction is applied with lipomatic. If the sagging is evident and the patient has different demands, the leg lift operation is approved. The surgeon gives detailed information to the patient about the operation method. Then the patient is expected to make a decision for the procedure.
Questions to Ask Yourself Before Surgery
Before the consultation, that is, the examination and diagnosis, the patient’s asking the following questions will provide convenience to both the physicians and the patient before and after the operation;
- Is there really a need for a leg lift operation?
- Why do I want to have a leg lift?
- Do I need other operations in terms of aesthetics?
- Are incision scars a problem?
- Is my skin quality suitable for this operation?
Some basic questions such as these enable one to act consciously before and after the consultation and to reach the goal in an aesthetic sense.
The patient who decides to have an operation after the examination should sleep at least 8 hours a day regularly until the operation. Aspirin should not be taken three weeks before, and smoking and alcohol should be stopped. Blood thinners should not be used for the last 1 week.
The first 3 weeks should be rested. After one and a half months, you can return to normal life. After the operation, there should be a bandage on the suture for the first 2 days and a light dressing should be applied. There is no need to remove the sutures under the skin. Stitches heal within 2 weeks. After a month, the stitch marks begin to disappear. Until the healing process, the sutures should be protected from the sun and impact, attention should be paid to hygiene and heavy movements should not be made. You can take a shower 2 days after the operation. After 3 weeks, sports activities can be done except jogging. In the first days after the operation, the legs should be kept above the level of the heart. Cotton underwear should be used for the first month and a corset should be worn.
After leg stretching aesthetics, an extremely aesthetic appearance is obtained on the legs. Horizontal incision marks in the groin are not visible as they will remain in underwear. Vertical incision scars are also not visible from the back and front of the body. Also, these scars fade over time. The success of leg stretching aesthetics is related to the patient’s attention to the warnings.
