To assess whether the surgical request is feasible, you should submit to us first two photos understandable (body image from the front and side) or send e-mail to us. The day before the procedure refers to personal counseling, instead of medical education, and an analysis by the operating surgeon. During the consultation process and the course and the possible cut of the procedure is discussed and highlighted.

There are two methods for the thigh lift. One is the mini-Thigh with only one cut in the groin and the other of the T-section with an additional cut is perpendicular to the inner thigh. In this mini-Thigh the section runs from the groin to get in the way Pofalte. The skin and excess fat is removed, which partially prepared up to the thigh muscle must. Wherever possible cutaneous nerves are spared. Before the wound is sutured in layers, must be ensured that the tissue is fixed in a stable. Therefore, a fixed fiber layer (Scarpa fascia) in adipose tissue are sewn to the skin on the pubic bone. This is certainly one of the most important steps in thigh-tightening.
The large thigh lift is performed with a T-intersection. The advantage is a significantly greater tightening effect, but this is an additional vertical scar accepted. The length of the scar must be made by the excess skin and the acceptance depends on the patient. Sometimes just a scar from 5cm long enough to achieve a significant improvement in results. Otherwise, the definitions contained under ‘Mini-Thigh’ principles.
The thigh lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia on the patient.
After the operation:
After the operation begins the treatment, which is just as important to the outcome as the surgery itself! 24 hours after the operation is complete bed rest. Must not act on rising train at the seams, not to interfere with the healing process.
