The skin drooping and flaccidity of the inner thighs is usually a sequence, caused by weight loss or simply by the passage of time. People with this deformity tend to be very concerned about it, because it limits their life in certain activities, and their way of dressing, wearing short clothes, bathing suits, etc
Thigh lift is a surgical procedure to correct any deformity that exists in the inner side of the thighs. This intervention is indicated when there are accumulations of fat, lax or drooping skin, or in both cases.
The extent of loose skin on the thigh can be greater or lesser depending on the degree of flabbiness and the quality of the skin tissue. In minor cases there is a more limited procedure, whereby all loose skin is removed from the upper thigh through an incision in the groin crease. This leaves a scar that is almost totally invisible.
In other cases where there is more flabby skin on the whole of the inner thigh we will have to open up a longer scar on the inner thigh, ensuring that it is as concealed and undetectable as possible.
The intervention is carried out with local anaesthesia and sedation, although in some cases we use epidural anaesthesia and sedation or general anaesthesia, in case of the patient´s preference or medical advice.
Liposuction of the entire inner thigh removes the necessary fat, and the excess skin is also removed.
Depending on the extent of the treatment, the patient may either come back home on the same day or stay overnight.
It is the most advanced and minimally invasive technique for remodelling the thighs in their entire contour in minor cases. The greatest advantage of this technique is that it leaves no scars, and totally retracts the skin of the thigh.
BODYTITE is a minimally invasive radiofrequency-assisted liposuction technique that removes fat and retracts the skin at the same time, with rapid recovery.
This technique is especially indicated in cases where there are only small accumulations of fat and slight drooping of the skin.
In some cases it is advisable to associate BODYTITE with a small removal of skin from the groin, which in no case leaves visible scars.
This intervention is performed depending on each case with local anaesthesia and sedation, or eidural anaesthesia, always on an outpatient basis, when the patient may return home a few hours later.
You would need to wear a compressive garment for 2 weeks after the surgery.
The results are really good and can be seen a week after the intervention, although the final result will be seen after 2 months.

The procedure is performed with local anesthetic and sedation, or sometimes with an epidural and sedation.
About two or three hours.
Yes. Usually, the patient should remain in the clinic for around six hours, until they recover from the anaesthesia. On some occasions, it is better to spend there the first 24 hours after the procedure.
This depends to a great extent on scarring in the groin area: it can be between one and two weeks.
Usually the scars are not visible, since they are located in the groin area and on the inner thigh.
Yes, in the future you will be able to go to the beach, but you will have to protect the scars with SPF 50 sunscreen and avoid exposing the scars to the sun for the first six months.
