Weight loss, pregnancies, aging, weight variations… numerous factors can alter the elasticity of the skin on the thighs. This area is very sensitive due to the finesse of the epidermis. The plastic surgery of thighs can change that. For example, a thigh lifting corrects the loosening, often not taken well, and the overall shape of the body that’s been modified/damaged.
The thigh surgery regroups all medical interventions, which goal is to improve the silhouette around the thigh area. In all the different interventions possible, you find the thigh lifting or cruroplastia. This plastic surgical intervention remodels the internal and external parts of the thighs by removing the skin excess. The goal is to really restore this area of the body.
Different from a liposuction, the thigh lifting is often associated with a liposuction to remove the identified fat heap. These two plastic surgeries associated together treat both the cutaneous and fat components.
Done ambulatory under a deep local anesthesia or general anesthesia, it lasts approximately 1 to 2 hours and a half depending on the incision techniques used.
The post operatory pains caused by a thigh lifting are moderate and appeased by the intake of analgesics that only leave you with soreness sensation during 10 to 15 days. After the intervention the plastic surgeon will recommend to wear compression clothing for 3 to 6 weeks (depending on the case). After two weeks the healing will be complete.
The leg plastic surgery, especially lifting of the thighs, aims to correct efficiently and durably the shape and silhouette of a person. After undergoing a thigh plastic surgery, results are visible very quickly, however, you need to wait 6 months once the edema is resorbed to obtain a final shape. Scars are barely visible after 10 to 12 months.
