Leg Tightening

A saggy appearance on inner legs may occur as a result of aging, pregnancy or significant weight loss. Leg Tightening surgery is a cosmetic surgical procedure to tighten and fix the sagging look on the inner legs due to excess skin.

The purpose of leg tightening surgery is to fix the deformation of the inner legs and to achieve a proportional body look. In order to achieve a tight and smooth look on the legs, liposuction can also be performed combined with leg tightening operation.

People planning to undergo a Leg Tightening operation should know that the method is not a surgical way to lose weight. The most suitable candidates are patients who are at their ideal weight but are unhappy with the appearance of their legs.

As with all body tightening surgeries, upper and lower leg tighening surgery has become very popular. One of reasons for its popularity is the successful and permanent results achieved by the surgery. For body contouring surgeries, the body should be evaluated as one and the proportional look should be considered. Otherwise, the successful result achieved by the surgery becomes insufficient by time.

The Process Before the Leg Tightening Operation

A detailed physical examination and planning process is initial before leg tightening surgery, all possible affects and results should be shared as well. While some candidates have very little fat tissue, some candidates have excess fat tissue on the inner tights. Therefore, each patient should be evaluated individually and planning should be made accordingly.

There is no specific age limit for leg tightening surgery. The age limit is determined by the person’s health status and suitability for surgery. Although sagging on the leg may occur by age, it can also be experienced at very young ages with rapid weight gain and loss. For this reason, anyone who does not have any health problems that prevent surgery can have this surgery.

Leg Tightening Operation

Patients who will undergo leg tightening surgery , should have some necessary pre-op routine examinations and anesthesia approval. The operation usually takes 1-2 hours under general anesthesia, depending on the severity of the sagging. With the techniques used during the surgery, the sagging skin and excess fat tissue are removed.

After the leg tightening surgery, the patient has a scar, due to the tightening process. This scar remains on the inner leg and fades significantly over time. In this process, it is very important to follow the doctor’s recommendations in terms of recovery.

After Leg Tightening Operation

After leg tightening operation, patients should get out of the bed and start moving and walking as soon as possible.

The drainage device that is placed are removed by the doctor 1 or 2 days after the operation. Contrary to popular belief, it is not a painful operation. The pain can be easily overcome with painkillers.

After the leg tightening surgery, a corset is dressed and the patient should wear the corset for a few weeks. After the operation, the stitches heal in about 10 days. Keeping the sutured areas moist and protecting them from direct sun exposure during the early recovery period and in the following period is an important criterion for the healing.
