DETAILED PROCEDURE INFO
How is a thigh lift procedure performed?
Medial thigh lift: An incision is made in the groin area and excess fat and skin are cut out along the inside of the thigh. Liposuction may or may not be included in this procedure, depending on your individual needs. The area from the groin to the knee is reshaped and the procedure is repeated for the other thigh. When a substantial portion of tissue is removed, the procedure is called thighplasty (Thigh Plastic).
Lateral Thigh Lift: This is a complex procedure that usually involves contouring the buttocks and the outer thighs and removing more tissue. The scarring is more extensive and the skin will be less elastic after surgery, so the weight should be maintained.
THIGH TIGHTENING TO ELIMINATE LOOSE SKIN AND FAT - WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS?
There are two different types of thigh lift procedures: medial (in) thigh lift or lateral (out) thigh lift (for details see "How is a thigh lift procedure performed?"). A physical exam, a thorough history, and a discussion with your physician will help determine if a medial or lateral thigh lift is best for you or if you are benefiting from a combined lower body lift. Dr. med. univ. Akhundov will gladly advise you in our practice in Berlin on your individual case.
WHICH CUTS AND SCARS WILL REMAIN AFTER A THIGH-TIGHTENING?
Medial thigh lift: The cuts are made in the groin area. For patients who are more likely to require significant removal of the excess skin, a longitudinal incision will be made along the inner thigh.
Lateral thigh lift: Depending on the requirements of a lateral thigh lift, the incisions from the groin will extend around the hips, and possibly an incision will be made in the buttock fold. The surgeon tries to place the cuts where the scars can be hidden by clothing, but nevertheless the incisions are larger than for a medial thigh lift.
