My thighs are all wrinkled
Kate, 43, Dentist, London
I have to admit that my weight fluctuated a lot in the past, but the appearance of my wrinkled thighs are embarrassing me too much, that’s why I requested a thigh lift.
A thigh lift aims at removing excess skin and fat building up in the inner thighs. Like facial skin, the skin of the inner thighs is delicate , this is why aging signs have a tendency to appear early in this area. The inner thighs also have the particularity of retaining fat, therefore exercise and diets rarely offer significant results when it comes to slimming down the area.
WHO IS IT FOR
Thigh lift is recommended for those bothered by excess skin in the inner or outer thighs forming because of weight fluctuations or natural aging of the skin. Wrinkled skin and excess fat in the inner thighs are the main reasons why patients request a thigh lift, which addresses both issues at the same time.
If liposuction is part of the procedure, it will be performed first to remove fat deposits. A horizontal incision in the groin following the upper inner thigh will allow the surgeon to remove horizontal excess skin whereas a vertical incision allows the removal of vertical excess skin. Once excess tissues are removed, the skin is tightened by sutures.
Thigh lift patients usually stay 1 to 3 days at the clinic.
General anesthesia is administered to perform a thigh lift.
Patients are usually discharged from the clinic after 24 to 48 hours. Swelling and bruising are expected, but they usually fade after 2 weeks. 2 weeks off work are required. Sudden movements and exposure of the scars to sunlight must be avoided. Patients can resume physical activities slowly 6 weeks after surgery.
LENGTH OF STAY
Your stay in Tunisia for a thigh lift surgery will last 5 nights and 6 days. You will progressively regain mobility during this time.
Once you’re discharged from the clinic, you can rest at your hotel room where you will receive postoperative care. Your surgeon will check up on you before departure to control the incision sites.
The all inclusive price of a thigh lift surgery is 2400 €.
