The treatment of problems in the areas of the thighs and buttocks is carried out surgically through the lifting, “Lift” of the inner surface of the thighs and buttocks.
Obesity, combined with high fat deposition in the buttocks and inner thighs, sagging skin, massive weight loss and age are key factors in creating buttocks sagging and severe fat dystrophy in the thighs.
The incisions in the buttocks area are hidden in normal skin folds while in the thighs, they are located on their inner surface in an inconspicuous area. Through the incisions, the necessary excess fat and skin is removed in order to achieve a successful tissue lift and correct the contours of the body in these areas.
These operations are performed together or individually under general anesthesia in the operating room and after a preoperative examination. They can be combined with liposuction or other surgeries on different areas of the body and face.
The results of the thigh lift surgery are immediately visible, providing the area with firmness, tightening and lifting. The sutures that are placed are internal and absorbable, so they are not removed. There is a gentle pressure bandage on the thighs and if liposuction has been performed, corsets are placed for 1 month.
The patient leaves the clinic with instructions for taking analgesics and oral antibiotics. The pain after the surgery is mild and in isolated places. There is usually mild swelling and possibly bruising that gradually subsides. Return to daily activities and work is possible after 10-12 days, always paying attention to weight lifting and standing. Training and exercise are recommended after 4-6 weeks.
The Thigh and Buttock Lift is successfully combined with other body procedures aimed at lifting and removing excess fat and loose skin, in people after massive weight loss or in women after multiple pregnancies (mommy make over).
Such surgeries are: breast lift with or without augmentation, liposuction of the abdomen, side walls (Love handles), lift and / or liposuction of the thighs, body liposuction.
As in any surgery, here too there are possible complications for which all appropriate measures are always taken in order to eliminate them. For example:
- Inflammation (prevented by strict application of antiseptic and intraoperative administration of antibiotics).
- Bleeding (prevented by thorough hemostasis during surgery and close monitoring of the patient after surgery).
- Wound splitting
- Deformed scars
