Thigh lift is a medical term that describes the surgical procedure by which the perimeter of the lower limbs is reduced, precisely at the level of the thighs, by drying dermal adipose tissue (skin and fat).
This procedure is designed for those patients who have lost weight quickly, either by diet or more commonly by bariatric surgery and consequently have excess skin in this area.
The time to perform this surgery ranges from 2-4 hours and its recovery is a bit slower compared to other aesthetic procedures.
Any surgical intervention presents a controlled risk of complications inherent in the anesthetic act and the procedure as such. However, all the relevant measures are taken to prevent them from occurring. Among the possible complications, we find seroma (accumulation of fluid under the skin), hematoma, hypersensitivity, edema, infection, thrombus formation, and scarring problems.
