Process of Thigh Lift Operation

Thigh lift aesthetics is performed under general anesthesia. Defective areas are marked in the leg area before the operation. Excess skin is removed from the groin line to the inner side of the leg and lifting is applied. The skin on the inner surface of the leg is pulled upwards and sutures are made over the groin line. In some patients, liposuction can be applied in addition to leg stretching. The operation is completed in about 2 hours and the patient stays in the hospital for 1 night.
