Fat and sagging may occur in the thigh-upper leg – areas when people experience excessive weight loss, after pregnancy periods or with the progression of their age. This can cause both the patient to be unhappy in an aesthetic sense and the patient to be uncomfortable while walking, and also disrupt their comfort. As a result of some factors, various skin sagging and skin loosening may occur in the upper leg area specified as the thigh. In such cases, patients may need leg aesthetics. Because the skin in the thigh area is too thin and is quite prone to reactions such as sagging or cracking. Especially this condition can be seen in patients who have lost too much weight. Because stretching occurs on the skin, and sagging can occur because the skin cannot collect itself. In order to eliminate such problems, upper leg lift surgery can be performed.
One of the methods that can be applied to treat these problems is the Vaser liposuction method. But when the scope of the problem expands, sometimes the Vaser liposuction method alone may not be enough. For this reason, the area can be lift to the groin by thigh lifting (upper leg lift) operation as leg aesthetics for the patient.
A detailed examination is performed before the operation. In this examination, it is learned how the patient expects a thigh lift (upper leg lift) operation, as well as the quality of the skin and excess fat in the patient’s thigh area. Especially if there is only fat in the area and sagging does not appear, sometimes the application of liposuction alone can be sufficient. With this application, the possibility of thinning the upper leg and tightening the leg can be provided. But if the patient has a relaxation or similar condition that can qualify as sagging in the thigh area, it may be necessary to focus on another method of leg aesthetics, since the classic practice of liposuction may not be enough.
Especially if the patient has a significant sagging problem along with lubrication in the thigh area, the patient will need to perform thigh stretching (upper leg stretching) surgery.
Two out of every three people have their dream thanks to the Swedish Clinic.
The first stage of the operation begins with the preliminary examination. The patient is presented with some forms to fill out. Then, analyzes are made for general controls. At the Swedish Clinic, patient health is our priority. After the physical examination and final controls are completed, the patient is given detailed information about the operation. How the operation will proceed and what you need to know about the process are fully conveyed to the patient at this stage. The operating room is prepared for the operation and the operation begins with the patient's approval. The operation is performed under general or local anesthesia. If general anesthesia was applied, you will stay in the hospital for 1 night. If it was applied locally, you will be discharged.
The first morning after the operation, you will wake up from a nice and painless sleep. Since this operation is not a very difficult operation, you will not have any problems. If you have minor pain, you can use the medicines given to you. You will be told what to do and what not to do, and if you are hospitalized, you will be discharged.
You may be ready to return to your normal life. You can take a shower and go back to work if you don't have a heavy job. Sports activities are allowed after 4-6 weeks. Leg movements should be restricted as much as possible so that this scar does not enlarge for 1 month after the operation.
