The thigh lift surgery in Istanbul is an aesthetic and functional procedure involving the removal of fat tissue under the skin in the inner parts of the thigh, which becomes more and more elastic after advancing age and excessive weight gain and loss, and tightening of the thigh. Thus, the disturbances due to the friction of that region with each other are corrected in a dramatic way. The most important difference here from other plastic surgeries is that there may be a scar that is difficult to hide with clothes that are allowed to stay.

Ideal candidates for thigh lift aesthetics are individuals who have a relatively good body size, but have loose skin and excess adipose tissue on the inner thighs that they cannot correct with exercise and diet. Thigh lift surgery should be postponed in patients who are thinking of losing an excessive amount of weight by dieting. Liposuction muscle fat removal or other aesthetic interventions may be recommended in addition to this procedure if necessary.

As with all surgical procedures, there are risks related to surgery and anesthesia in thigh aesthetics. Special risks that may occur after this surgery include wound site infection, accumulation of blood or body fluid at the surgical site, decoction of blood clots and poor wound healing. By listening to the warnings and recommendations of your plastic surgeon, you can increase these risks with other existing systemic diseases (heart – lung – kidney hst., diabetes, etc.) by taking the recommendations of the relevant doctors in Turkey hospital, you can reduce these risks enough to ignore.

At the first examination, the candidate’s health, the amount of adipose tissue in the inner and back thighs, the degree of sagging and the skin quality are evaluated, whether he smokes, whether he takes any medications or treatments is definitely questioned. The candidate should clearly inform his expectations from the surgery, the plastic surgeon should give detailed information about the intervention and alternative methods to be performed. In addition, detailed information is given to the candidate about the surgical scar that will remain. This scar, as with all surgeries, varies from person to person in terms of width and swelling. There is a ”T” shaped scar that extends from the groin area to the back in the inter-thigh-genital fold, usually decaying downwards depending on the excess of the problem on the inner faces of both thighs facing each other in the midline. Again, at this time, the anesthesia to be used in the operation, the hospital where it will be performed and its cost are explained. Many suggestions are made, from eating and drinking habits before surgery to smoking and medications to avoid.

Thigh lift aesthetics can also be performed under general anesthesia or in suitable candidates by numbing with a needle from the back and being awake. The operation usually takes between 2-3 hours depending on the size of the intervention performed. It is completely removed excess skin and subcutaneous adipose tissue from the thigh muscles by entering through a ”T” shaped incision that extends from the groin area to the back in the inter-thigh-genital fold, usually decaying downwards on the inner faces of both thighs facing each other, depending on the excess of the problem, in the midline. After that, the surrounding skin and subcutaneous tissues are slightly liberalized. After the drains are placed to prevent blood or body fluid accumulation at the surgery site, the incisions are joined and stitched in the middle line, and the dressings are made and the surgery is terminated.

Turkey Medicals Co-ordinator, “In the first days after thigh lift surgery, there may be pain and discomfort in those areas that can be relieved with oral painkillers. Drains placed during Istanbul hospital surgery are usually removed on 1-3 days. The patient can go home the day after spending the first evening in the hospital after thigh aesthetics, the patient rests by raising her legs for the first 3-7 days according to his previous condition. After this time, washing and lying flat will be possible. From this moment on, a return to daily social activities is possible. It will take a few months to start heavy sporting activities.”
