Thigh Lift Mexico

Improves the appearance of the upper legs.

Thigh LiftProcedure
A thigh lift refers to a variety of operations that remove skin and fat from the upper leg (thigh) area in order to improve contours by removing bulk and loose soft tissues.

Length
Two to four and one half hours depending on the amount of tissue to be removed. Usually requires at least one position change and re-prepping and draping as patients are switched from front to back or vice versa.

Anesthesia
The anesthesia can be general or local with sedation.

Inpatient/Outpatient
Both options are possible.

Possible Side Effects
The most common side effect is wound breakdown at the intersection of suture lines in the groin because of excessive stretch of the tight closure caused by patient movement. Widened scars can also occur because of tension in these areas.

Risks
Similar to risks associated with any surgery, including infection, hematoma and fluid collection. Pulmonary embolism is a remote possibility.

Recovery
Requires three to four weeks of restricted movement including no spreading of the legs or excessive flexion. This procedure is best done in colder months of the year because special post-operative garment wear for support is important.

Results
This type of surgery is generally well tolerated and appreciated by patients.
