From our doctor:
"For the leg tissue, it gets harder to resist the effects of gravity over the years. A leg, which has lost its strained structure, may create psychological problems as well as limiting that person’s choice of clothing or walking comfort. For patients who want to get rid of these problems, leg-stretching process is a procedure performed by plastic surgeons."
Patients with severe loosening and sagging skin tissue on the inner side of the leg above the knee are optimum candidates for the surgery. The procedure is frequently applied to middle-aged and older people except patients with certain genetic conditions.
After analysis of medical history and physical examination, the technical operation criteria are evaluated to determine the operation method. The anesthesiologist checks any obstacles before the operation and necessary blood tests are done before the surgery. In case of chronic diseases that may affect the operation, other additional tests or consultations may be necessary. If you use any blood-thinning medication it should be discontinued at least 1 week in advance the operation. Smoking can impair wound healing in some patients. There is no need to stop using drugs necessary for other chronic diseases.
Leg lift surgery is done under general anesthesia in the hospital environment. The average operative time ranges from 1 to 2 hours. The process is performed by your plastic surgeon according to the method decided before the operation. If necessary, liposuction is also applied during the leg lift surgery. An incision is made in the area of the inner side of the leg extending from the knee to the genitals. The excess tissue is removed.
In the 4th post-operative hour, food intake starts and the patient gets off bed to start walking. Patients are discharged on the same day. Pain is not prominent and pain relievers can be used to provide adequate assistance. Patients can take a shower after 1 or 2 days. Some level of edema and swelling may occur in the leg and it passes within approximately 2-3 weeks. Mild exercise can easily be done in time. Return to everyday life is very quick.
Of course, every surgery has its own complications. While these are rare, it should be explained to the patient by the physician to inform the patient. There are alternative solutions for the all short-term and long-term complications.
