Thight lift plastic surgery in Lithuania aftercare in Ireland. A thigh lift is a plastic surgery during which excess skin and fat is removed from the inner or outer thighs. Sometimes this procedure is combined with liposuction to achieve better results. Patients, who have lost a lot of weight with the help of a balanced diet and exercise, or after a bariatric surgery, but still have a lot of excess tissue on their thighs, often choose this procedure to improve their appearance. The results of this surgery are long lasting, if the patient is committed to maintain a healthy lifestyle and moderate weight after the procedure.
A thigh lift can be performed in several ways. Your surgeon will recommend the most suitable incision length and placement depending on the targeted area, how much skin he or she would need to remove, and the changes you seek to make.
The most common thigh lift surgery techniques:
a. Inner thigh lift. During this type of surgery the incisions will be made at the junction where the thigh meets the pubic area. The incisions will allow him to reach the underlying tissues, while making them barely visible, since the scars can be hidden with underwear. Your plastic surgeon will then remove a part of the excess skin and fat from the region and tighten the remaining skin to improve the leg contours.
b. Mini thigh lift can be offered to patients, who experience sagging on the upper third of the leg and seek only a subtle change. During this procedure the slit in the groin area is very short, which makes the recovery period faster and the scars are only minimal.
c. Outer thigh lift is also known as a bilateral thigh lift. It is a more complex plastic surgery, when compared to the inner thigh lift, because the surgeon will make the incisions at the top of the leg, where the lower edge of underwear would be, creating a shape similar to a “V”. If a larger area needs to be lifted, the incision might be made surrounding the hips, including the buttock area as well. Then, the excess skin and fat will be removed and the remaining amount will be pulled up, reshaped and attached to the place where the incision were made. This technique tightens the skin along the both the right and left sides of the leg, and helps to lift the buttocks as well.
d. Medial thigh lift can alter the shape of legs and remove excess skin and fat from the upper region of the inner thigh. During this procedure, the incisions are made in the groin area (similar to the inner thigh lift) and will be extended back to the crease of buttock, or even the hip region. This technique might also include vertical incisions, that surgeon would be able to access more underlying tissue. The skin will then be lifted, and the shape of the leg will be improved and tightened, by removing excess skin and fat.
The duration of thigh lift surgery depends on the individual situation and technique. The procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia and the first couple of days after operation hospitalization is recommended because tiny tubes might be placed into your incisions to drain out any excess blood or fluid. The first month after the surgery, it is necessary to wear a compression garment to help the incisions heal. Follow-up appointments with the surgeon are necessary to discuss when the stitches should be removed and to monitor your recovery process.
