Post-weight loss surgery – thigh lift

This is an intervention to tauten skin on the inner thighs. It can also remove excess fat when a liposuction is not enough. This intervention is regularly combined with a thigh liposuction.

ADDED EXTRA

Crisalix is 3D simulation software that shows the results of aesthetic surgery. This tool helps patients better express their request and enables surgeons to give clear, reasoned explanations. Patients are therefore better informed when they decide to have an operation.

QUESTIONS/ANSWERS

  • Why undergo this intervention rather than simple liposuction?
    Surgeons can choose to offer liposuction alone or combined with a thigh lift. It depends on the amount of excess fat and sagging skin on the inner thighs.
  • How long before you can resume normal activity?
    This intervention causes high tissue tension at the root of the thighs. You must not spread your legs for the first 15 days. Normal activity can be resumed gradually after the first 15 days.
  • What interventions can be combined with a thigh lift?
    It can be combined with a thigh liposuction, which improves the aesthetic result.
