The procedure of lifting and reduction thigh skin is performed in a way that a scar is as less visible as possible. The incision is located on the inner side of the thigh, from the groin crease on the back side towards the gluteus crease, so that it remains hidden inside the skin creases.
IMMEDIATE POSTOPERATIVE PERIOD
Immediate postoperative care lasts up to 24 hours after the surgery. After the operation, like with the other surgical procedures, hematomas and swellings of the surgically treated area can appear. To lessen these symptoms and to minimize the scar, it is necessary to wear compression jersey or bandage continuously for three weeks after the surgery and three more weeks only during night.
Surgery results are visible immediately; skin surplus that was present is removed now and with healing of the tissue and disappearance of hematomas, visual impression is getting better and better. It takes three more months to see the final result.
