Sagging skin on the inner thighs can impact the body’s well-being. The inner thigh lift tightens the skin.
Our specialists at Rosenpark Clinic use a special technique to perform the tightening operation so that anyone looking at your legs sees nothing – except for beautiful legs with firm thighs.
However, this procedure is not suited for losing weight.
The inner thigh lift incision is made from the groin to the start of the buttock crease. The scar can then disappear into this later on or be hidden by the bikini or bathing suit.
The sagging skin area on the inner thigh is dissected and separated over the muscle and stretched upwards. The surgeon needs good visual judgment in order not to remove too much or too little excess skin. For long-term stability, the surgeon sutures the deep dermal layer with the periosteum of the pubic bone. The upper dermal layers are sutured over this – using a special technique the scar will be barely visible later on.
At Rosenpark Clinic the thigh lift is usually performed in combination with preceding liposuction – although on two consecutive days.
The liposuction is done under tumescent local anesthesia, and the inner thigh lift is usually done under twilight sleep. For more information about your options for a comfortable, pain-free treatment see the anesthesia section.
If the inner thigh lift is done in combination with liposuction, we will keep you at the clinic for at least two nights. After an inner thigh lift without liposuction, you can leave the clinic the next day. You should take it easy for one to two weeks after the procedure – especially in order to prevent excessive stress on the sutures caused by friction or tension. After one to two weeks you will be able to resume your work and social obligations. However, in order not to compromise the scar, you should not exercise for at least six weeks.
Dr. Gerhard Sattler: “The inner thigh lift is an ideal solution for nice legs, especially in the case of major loss of skin elasticity, for example, through strong UV radiation.”
