Thigh lift and plasty

Thigh lift and plasty

What is given by nature cannot always be improved even with a steely will. The strictest diets, continuous exercise, exercises for the inner thighs and massage are not able to cope with age-related changes, sagging skin due to weight loss and gravity: the tissues of the outer and inner thighs lose tone and elasticity, and fat traps form. However, a thigh lift and plastic surgery at the VIRTUS Institute can help with this.

Thigh lift and plasty

Indications and contraindications for thigh lift and hip surgery

Indications for a thigh lift can be both aesthetic (patient dissatisfaction with the hip line) and functional. In women, these are most often local fat traps (accumulation of fat cells) on the inner and outer surfaces of the thighs, which deform their contour, and in men, sagging excess skin after losing weight. But it also happens that one person has both fat traps and sagging skin.
In addition to general surgical contraindications (blood clotting disorders, the presence of acute or chronic diseases in the acute phase, oncopathology, etc.), there are also local ones: inflammation in the hip area and the inability to perform the operation in such a way as to meet the patient’s unrealistic expectations.

Result of thigh lift and plastic surgery

The result of successful hip surgery is, on the one hand, the elimination of physiological discomfort (no rubbing, inflammation and irritation of the skin, comfort when walking), and on the other, the patient’s satisfaction with the beautiful line and appearance of the skin on the hips. If the cycle of weight gain and weight loss does not repeat, one operation is enough; there is no need to repeat the procedure.

What happens if you don’t perform a thigh lift and plastic surgery?

Fat deposits in the thigh area and loose skin create not only aesthetic, but also physical discomfort: skin irritation occurs due to the friction of the thighs against each other, diaper rash, swelling of the thighs, and the contour is deformed. Usually a person needs plastic surgery after significant weight loss, when all these problems are complicated by additional sagging skin. If you do not perform a thigh lift, this will not only lead to the fact that a person will be unpleasant to look at himself in the mirror, but also to constant dermatitis and inflammation, because the excess skin will rub and sweat. Accordingly, the choice of clothes in which you can at least walk normally (nothing tight and no skirts or short shorts) will be greatly narrowed, and this already negatively affects your well-being and mood.

Preparation for thigh lift and hip surgery

Preparation for a thigh lift and plastic surgery includes a consultation with a plastic surgeon, passing the necessary tests and a consultation with an anesthesiologist. By the time of the operation, the weight loss process should be completed, and care should also be taken to ensure that the skin of the thighs is free of irritation and inflammation, which can complicate the surgeon’s work and the recovery period.

Stages of thigh lift and hip surgery

The most popular thigh augmentation procedure is liposuction, which is designed to remove fat traps. We can transplant the excess fat removed, for example, onto the buttocks or face, thus solving several of the patient’s problems.

A lift removes excess loose skin and stretch marks on the inner thighs. This procedure can be combined with liposuction: first remove fat traps, and then tighten the remaining skin. If there is no fat in the thighs, but there are lumps and dimples on the thighs, we use different options for lifting (from a mini-lift to extensive plastic surgery on the inner thigh) depending on the amount of excess skin. In this case, the suture is located in a natural groin or vertical fold, which makes it almost invisible after healing. During thigh lift surgery, several anesthesia options are possible depending on the scope of the planned intervention:

  • local;
  • medicated sleep;
  • general;
  • regional (most often used).

Thigh plastic surgery usually lasts approximately 1.5-2 hours.

Rehabilitation after thigh lift and hip surgery

The postoperative period, as a rule, passes without pain, and the tightening area loses sensitivity for some time (4-5 months). But for better recovery, you should still limit physical activity for a month and wear special compression garments. Of course, you don’t have to wear this underwear 24/7—you can take it off to rest or shower, and put it on again.

Control visits usually occur on days 6-7, 10-14, 1, 3 and 6 months after the lift to check how the scars are forming and, if necessary, make additional appointments.

The formation of sutures lasts 8-10 months, after this period they become pale and almost invisible.

The best time of year to perform the operation would be autumn, winter or spring.
