What is a Thigh Lift?19-09-2014
Thigh Lift or Crural Lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to tighten the skin of the thigh and reduce sagging in the inner or outer thigh.
Dr. Kai O. Kaye in Marbella performs this procedure on its own, or in combination with other procedures such as a liposuction or a body lift. Thigh lift surgery can be done under ‘twilight’ anesthesia or general anesthesia. The procedure is mostly performed as an out patient procedure at the hospital. Immediately before surgery Dr. Kaye will mark the patient’s thighs while standing up.
The loose skin is pinched and elevated towards the groin. An estimate is made of how much skin should be removed. Dr. Kaye Director and Head Surgeon of Ocean Clinic Marbella designs the surgery so the final scar is hidden in the groin crease. Excess skin and fat are removed and the remaining thigh skin is elevated and tightened.
Thigh lift surgery is generally well tolerated, only walking can be uncomfortable during the first week. Following your surgery, you are advised to rest as much as possible to avoid a lot of leg motion, which can affect the final appearance of the scar.
Where are the scars?
The scars are hidden in the folds of the groin and buttock cheek, at the top of the leg.
Is it very painful post-op?
It can be uncomfortable for a few days but a very effective drug regime is prescribed for the post-op period.
How can I maximize my results post-op?
Without doubt the most important thing you can do is to stop smoking-at least until you are fully healed. Smoking robs the skin of Oxygen/nutrient –rich blood needed for a safe and full recovery.
How long will the results last?
Depending on skin quality, lifestyle, sun exposition etc 8-10 years.
