Thigh lift surgery is an operation performed to eliminate looseness, sagging and irregularities in the inner thighs.

In the thigh lift surgery, the excessive skin and adipose tissue on the upper and inner thighs are removed. This surgery, which is usually performed on women over the age of 40, may occur at an earlier age in patients whose skin type tends to loosen. In some patients, the problem is loosening of the skin, while in others it is excessive fatting.

The excess skin is removed and stretched and sutured to leave a curved appearance on the inside of the groin of thin patients with little skin. Thigh lift surgeries are performed in the operating room environment and under general anesthesia. After the operation which lasts for 2-3 hours, the pain is dull or absent. Movements should be restricted a little till the post-operative recovery process is completed.
