Leg (Thigh) Stretching Surgery Methods
• Upper Leg (Thigh) Stretch
• Mini Leg (Thigh) Stretch
• Inner Leg Stretch
Upper Leg (Thigh) Stretch
In upper stretching surgery, the part where the leg (thigh) meets the groin is targeted. The incision is made on the inside of the thigh where it meets the groin. During this procedure, while the skin is removed, dietary and sports-resistant fats can also be removed by liposuction. It is one of the best camouflaged cuts possible.
Stretching It is a form of inner leg stretching surgery performed with a shorter incision. It is a leg stretching procedure made with a shorter incision on the upper part of the leg at the junction with the groin, and its effectiveness is more limited, but it has less scarring. It provides a quick recovery in a shorter time.
Inner Limb Lift reduces excess skin and fat on the upper-inner part of the inner thigh (thigh). It is designed for patients who are dissatisfied with the shape of their legs or suffer from excess skin sagging after losing excess weight. During inner leg (thigh) stretching surgery, an incision is made so that the scar remains on the inside of the leg.
Sometimes this incision can also be combined with an incision in the upper part of the leg where it meets the groin and hip. During the inner leg stretching surgery, liposuction to the leg can also be performed in the same session. Especially when it is combined with a technique that protects vascular structures such as Vaser Liposuction, it can increase the success rate.
