The thigh lift is usually performed to lift the tissue off the thighs and buttocks, to improve body contouring. There is also a risk of wound dehiscence if subjected to excessive traction to them, so you should be extremely careful with the movements of the body during the first two weeks. Some women report areas of skin with decreased sensitivity near the incisions.
These symptoms usually disappear over time, but may be permanent in some patients. Sometimes the scars of the incision are not as good as we would like. This depends on personal factors and localization of the scars. We will explain in detail where they settle and what is the expected quality of the scars.

Pero como en cualquier operación, hay riesgos asociados con la cirugía y complicaciones especificas asociadas con el procedimiento. Como con cualquier procedimiento quirúrgico, el sangrado tras la operación puede causar edema y disconfort.
Tales molestias se atenúan por la colocación de drenajes que se mantienen 2 o 3 días para evacuar la sangre de la herida. No obstante hay un pequeño riesgo de hematoma que si se presenta puede requerir la evacuación de la sangre acumulada.
Un pequeño porcentaje de pacientes pueden presentar una infección. Esto puede ocurrir en cualquier momento, pero es más frecuente en la primera semana tras la cirugía.
The method of traction of the skin of the leg depends on its anatomy, its problems and our recommendations. The incision can be made either only on the inner side of the thigh near the groin or it may be necessary to take it to the gluteal fold. Sometimes in thigh and gluteal lifting it may be necessary to circulate it.
Do not forget however that the incisions will be proportional to the amount of excess skin, and that to eliminate this there is no other possible way to make scars.
The choice is made so that the incision is placed so that the scars are as visible as possible.
In the event that the scars are long and obvious, we must weigh the improvement in the body contour with the existence of such scars. We will explain what the situation will be so that you can evaluate the improvement with objectivity The incisions are made to make sure that the scars are as visible as possible, in the inguinal crease or in the gluteal fold Through incision we perform a liposuction to facilitate traction of the skin and remove the excess skin.
Then the incisions are sutured carefully. Drainage tubes are left for a few days after surgery. It is important to discuss pros and cons of each of the techniques so that you understand the implications of the procedure that we recommend. The surgery usually takes two to three hours.
The wound is closed with a buried suture and then the legs are bandaged for two or three days to allow proper healing.
