Ideal figure involves a harmony of the upper and lower body. Beautiful legs are attractive at all times - one can safely wear mini skirts and tight clothes, and show off "daring" bikinis on the beach.
Unfortunately, buttocks, hips, knees and shins are often subjected to fat accumulation due to sedentary lifestyle, hormonal disorders, and as a result of frequent diets. With age, or as a result of drastic weight loss, one may see cases of saggy skin on the hips, knees and shins.
This problem is solved in plastic surgery by two methods:
- liposuction or liposculpture,
- surgical removal of excess skin.
In some cases it is possible to combine these two techniques.
Anaesthesia: local anaesthesia combined with intravenous neuroleptoanalgesia; or, in some cases, general anaesthetic.
Duration: 45 minutes - 2.5 hours.
- The patient goes home with a special garment or, in some cases, may remain in hospital for 1 night.
- Special garment must be worn for 3-4 weeks.
- Stitches are removed after 2 weeks.
- Dynamic observation once a week for 2-3 months.
- Ability to return for work after 2 weeks
Price: The pricing for this procedure is determined during the consultation. The surgeon will examine the contours and proportions of the body and lower limbs, skin, subcutaneous fat and muscles. Based on these the optimal individually tailored method of surgical intervention will be determined, and the size of the special garment will be decided upon.
What is important to consider?
For better blood circulation and rapid recovery, the patient will need to quit smoking 2-3 months prior to the surgery.
When conducted simultaneously with liposuction, thigh lift is a fairly serious and extensive operation, since the zone of surgical intervention is located in the area of vital arteries and nerves. It is, therefore, advisable that this procedure should be performed by a highly qualified plastic surgeon with extensive experience.
