Get the beautiful legs you always wanted and restore your confidence. At Geoplasty Plastic Surgery we help you get rid of sagging skin in the inner thighs, while we thin down and improve the contour of your legs.
What a thigh lift is
Sagging skin and excess fat in the inner thighs is one of the most difficult problems in plastic surgery.
The skin appears wrinkled, filled with lines that cannot be corrected with diet and exercise. The problem is usually caused by:
- Massive weight loss, either normally or after a surgical procedure.
- Ageing which may lead to tissue laxity.
A thigh lift provides a permanent solution for men and women.
The thigh lift reshapes the inner thigh area, and creates beautiful and youthful legs.
After surgery, you will get thinner and more well-defined thighs, and you will restore your confidence, showing off your body even with a bathing suit.
How a thigh lift is performed
The procedure is usually performed under general anaesthesia, after a preoperative check-up is completed.
The procedure is preceded by liposuction all around the area to sculpt the thigh, and reduce excess fat and further skin laxity.
The incision is performed high in the femoro-inguinal space, so that the final scar is hidden under a natural fold of the body and is fully covered by underwear.
It is very important that the deep fascia of the thigh is set on a solid structure, such as the periosteal pubic symphysis. At the same time, the result lasts longer and scar movement is avoided.
What happens after the procedure
After the procedure, there is no pain, but a tightness sensation in the area of the thighs.
It is necessary to wear a compression garment for 1 month. This way, the swelling subsides and the thighs are supported.
For 7 days after the procedure, reduced mobility is recommended. After 2-3 weeks, you may return to your normal activities.
The results of the procedure may last for years and are not affected by small weight fluctuations.
We will give you a comprehensive monitoring and postoperative care plan, tailored to your needs. This will not only include general instructions, but also information regarding permitted activities. You will also be prescribed pharmaceutical treatment.
What the possible complications of a thigh lift are
Rare complications are haematoma and infection of the wound, which could well lead to wound rupture.
Other complications, such as hypertrophic scars and aesthetic disfigurement, may be easily prevented by proper planning prior to the procedure and the suitable technique that Dr Georgopoulos applies.
What other procedures a thigh lift may be combined with
A thigh lift may be combined with liposuction for better anatomical accuracy of the lower part of the body.
Dr Georgopoulos has extensive experience in body contouring. He will evaluate your needs and desires and will recommend the procedure that can offer you the anticipated result.
