Thigh (Leg) Lift Surgery

The inner parts of the legs have a soft and loose structure, so they may sag comparatively quickly.  The thigh (leg) lift surgery corrects this undesired appearance by removing the excess skin and fat tissue to lift the leg up.

The surgeon makes an incision from the inner surface of the thigh along the inguinal line to remove the excess tissue. According to the severity of the deformity, the size of the incision changes. After the lifting procedure, a contour correction which involves liposuction may be performed for other parts of the leg.

The sutures do not need removing thanks to the absorbable suture material. The patient is generally discharged the next day, but should move in a restricted range for 2 to 3 weeks. Massage and wearing a corset are recommended for 4 weeks so that the skin settles evenly.
