The skin on the upper legs usually loss its tension due to loss or gain of weight, ageing, births, etc., and as a result the skin on the inner thigh gets loose and dangles. If these loosening and dangling are in extreme levels thigh lifting surgery could be a solution.
Though this surgery is usually conducted along with other surgeries under anesthesia, it’s possible to be performed under local anesthesia. Physical activities should be limited for 2-3 weeks after the surgery.
Surgical scars on the groins are important. Mostly they are made in such a way that they could be hidden under a bikini or a swimsuit, however, due to gravity these scars could slip down 2-3 cm in time. Skin and fat tissues are removed in an elliptic shape by an incision made in the groin area, extending downward wrapping around the back of the thigh. Then tissues are brought together and sewn.
Since the suture line are in an area that naturally wet and open to contamination like groins there could be scar-healing problems. Post-surgery care and treatment are as much important as the decision for the surgery itself. Since soluble suturing material are used there is no need to remove the sutures.
