Thigh lift Tunisia: firm the skin of the thighs

Thigh lift Tunisia, also known as a crural lift, focuses on the appearance and contour of the upper legs. This area becomes more and more resistant to diet and exercise with age, leading to the appearance of fatty deposits, cellulite and excess skin. A thigh lift helps remove excess skin and tightens it to improve tone and contour of the thighs.

Good candidates for thigh lift

Men and women who have excess skin on their thighs that makes them feel like they are “sagging” may be good candidates for a thigh lift. However, in order to ensure the smooth running of the procedure and achieve a perfect result, there are certain criteria that the patient must meet before undergoing surgery.

  • First: patients should have excess skin on the thighs which has a negative impact on their appearance. Thigh lift is not suitable for patients who have excess fat on the thighs and it is not an alternative to healthy diet and exercise. Our surgeon may also be able to perform liposuction to help remove stubborn fat deposits from the thighs, but this is considered an additional procedure. For these reasons, patients should have a healthy and stable weight. Patients who have excess skin on their thighs as a result of weight loss are often good candidates. However, they must make a commitment to maintain their weight loss by eating healthy and leading an active lifestyle.
  • Second: patients should be in good general health. They must inform the surgeon of any chronic illness they are suffering from at the time of the consultation. They should not smoke or drink a lot, as smoking and drinking alcohol can interfere with their recovery. In addition, patients must be in good mental health. It's important to keep in mind that cosmetic surgery is not only physically taxing, but it can also be emotionally taxing. Patients should also have realistic expectations for the surgery.

Techniques of thigh lift Tunisia

In general, the thigh lift is performed on an outpatient basis with general anesthesia. Depending on the patient's areas of concern and desired results, the surgeon at Clinique El Yosr Internationale in Sousse, Tunisia, will use one or more of the following thigh lift techniques.

Inner thigh lift

As the name suggests, an inner thigh lift focuses on the excess skin on the inside of the thigh. For this technique, the surgeon will make an incision where the thigh meets the pubic area. This incision allows the surgeon to access problem areas, while also making an inconspicuous incision. The resulting scars can be easily covered by a swimsuit or underwear. Some skin and tissue will be removed, and the remaining skin will be redraped for improved contour.

Bilateral thigh lift

An external thigh lift, opposite to the aforementioned technique, focuses on the excess skin on the outside of the thigh. It is also called a bilateral thigh lift. For this technique, the surgeon will make an incision on the outer top of the leg, around the groin and buttocks. This incision is easily covered by most swimwear and underwear. Similar to the inner thigh lift, some skin and tissue will be removed and the remaining skin will be redraped to firm the contour. This technique also allows the surgeon to easily treat both the front and the back of the outer thigh. The technique of external thigh lift is most often performed on patients who have lost a significant amount of weight.

Medial thigh lift

A medial thigh lift, also called a vertical thigh lift, focuses on the inner thigh. This technique uses the same incision as an inner thigh lift, plus a secondary incision that descends vertically on the inner side of the knee. This gives the doctor better access not only to the skin on the inside of the thigh, but also to the tissues and fat in that area. This is a good technique for patients who have failed to tone thighs with diet and exercise.

Mini thigh lift

A mini thigh lift is an alternative to the inner thigh lift, this intervention is suitable for patients with a slight excess skin on the inside of the thighs. This surgery requires a shorter incision than the inner thigh lift and generally a shorter recovery time.

The surgeon will use his expertise to recommend the best technique for the patient at the time of the consultation.

After the surgery

It is very important to follow the surgeon's instructions for a good recovery. Failure to do so or trying to rush the healing period can have a negative impact on the outcome of the procedure.

Nurses will provide the patient with more details on how to ensure a full recovery. For example, they will provide instructions on how to sit and sleep to promote comfort. They will also provide information on side effects, such as bruising and swelling to be expected during the first few weeks after surgery. Discomfort can be controlled with prescription or over-the-counter medications.

Patients may return to work approximately 2-3 weeks after surgery, depending on the technique (s) used. However, they must continue to wear compression panties for up to a month at all hours of the day, except for the shower. Exercise and heavy lifting can be resumed after about 6-8 weeks.

The results of a thigh lift

The results of a thigh lift will be immediately visible once the bruising and swelling is gone. However, results will continue to improve for up to a year.

The scars resulting from the incisions will continue to fade. In order to improve the appearance of scars, patients should be sure to hydrate and apply sunscreen when they are outside.
