Loosening of the medial surface of the thigh is a characteristic feature in people (man-woman) who have undergone massive weight loss and in women after the age of 50.
It is an aesthetic deformity of the specific area which over time tends to deteriorate.
The specific anatomical area contains an increased amount of fat, while the skin in the medial surface is thinner, with a smaller amount of collagen and that is why the inner thigh area loosens easily after a certain age and any kind of exercise or diet cannot improve it.
Thigh lifting surgery is the only technique that relieves you of the loose and wrinkled skin in the medial surface of the thighs.
Dr Kretsis through the modern technique eliminates the sagging of the medial thighs and prevents the scars from being visible.
Am I the right candidate for a thigh lift surgery?
Suitable candidates for this surgery are:
- Individuals who have undergone massive weight loss (diet-surgery)
- Women with loosening and stretch marks in the medial surface of the thighs and patients after an unsuccessful surgical operation
Thigh Lift Surgical Technique
Excess loosened-wrinkled skin in the thigh area disappears through an incision usually made in the groin, extending downward and wrapping around the back of the thigh.
During the operation Dr. Kretsis performs simultaneously a liposuction where it is needed.
Through liposuction Dr. Kretsis achieves to remove as much loosen skin as possible.
The incision is sutured in a manner so that the orientation of the scar is within the panty line and thigh tissues are sutured and supported by stapled sutures to the periosteum of the pubic symphysis in order to avoid them of being visible.
