Thigh Lift Procedure & Cost in Turkey

What is a Thigh Lift Procedure?

A thigh lift, also known as thighplasty is a cosmetic procedure in which the surgeon removes excess skin and fat from the inner and outer thighs. This procedure is typically done under general anesthesia. The surgeon will make an incision along the inner thigh, extending around the back of the thigh in some cases, and then remove the excess skin and fat. After that, they’ll tighten and reposition the remaining skin and close the incisions with stitches or surgical tape.

Who is a Suitable Candidate for Thigh Lift (thighplasty)?

Thigh lift surgery is a good option for people who suffer from loose, sagging skin or excess fat on their thighs. Although it can be done to people from different ages, it is highly important to consult a professional before you go into surgery. You need to have an overall good health, to be a non-smoker, and have realistic expectations about the results.

The Different Types of Thigh Lift Procedures

There are different types of thigh lift procedures. They depend on your individual needs and goals. Here’s a quick breakdown of the types of thigh lift procedures:

Here are the different types of thigh lift procedures:

  • Inner (medial) thigh lift: This is the most common type of thigh lift. The surgeon removes the excess skin and fat from the inner thigh by making an incision in the groin and extending it around the back of the thigh.
  • Mini thigh lift: This is a less invasive procedure. It is used to remove a small amount of excess skin and fat from the inner thigh. The incision here is much smaller than the incision for a full thigh lift.
  • Outer (bilateral) thigh lift: In this procedure, the excess skin and fat are removed from the outer thigh. The incision is made in the upper groin and extends around the hip and across the back at the waistline.
  • Spiral thigh lift: The fat in this procedure is removed from all of the thigh areas. The incision starts in the groin and spirals down to the knee.
  • Vertical thigh lift: This procedure removes the excess skin and fat from the entire thigh area. The incision is made from the groin to the knee.
  • Posterior lift: This type is used to lift and tighten the sagging skin on the back of the thigh. The incision is made in the upper groin and extends around the hip and across the back at the waistline.
  • Thigh lift with liposuction: This one’s usually used in conjunction with a thigh lift to remove excess fat from the thighs. Liposuction can be used to remove fat from the inner, outer, and back of the thighs.

A Guide to the Thigh Lift Recovery Period

Just like any other procedure, there are many guidelines that you need to follow. After a thigh lift procedure, most people need to stay in the hospital for a day or two. Recovery time takes up to 2-3 weeks. However, each individual’s body is different, so it may take longer for some people. During recovery, you’ll need to wear a compression garment to help with swelling and bruising, while also avoiding activities and lifting heavy objects. It is highly important to follow your doctor’s instructions thoroughly to ensure a smooth recovery.

Are there risks or complications associated with thigh lift surgery?

All surgeries carry a number of risks, and unfortunately, thigh lift is no exception. Some of the risks and complications include bleeding, infection, scarring, numbness or tingling, fat necrosis (death of fat cells), fluid accumulation, and allergic reaction to anesthesia. If it happens and you bump into any of these risks, contact your surgeon or doctor immediately.

Can a thigh lift be combined with other cosmetic procedures?

Yes, you can combine a thigh lift with other cosmetic procedures. However, you need to listen to your body and give yourself time to recover.

What results can I expect from a thigh lift, and how long do they last

A thigh lift procedure is a life-changing experience for many people. It is a confidence booster as it improves your body’s contour, reduces skin laxity, and reduces the appearance of cellulite. What makes it such a popular choice, is its longevity. But although its results are long-lasting, you must maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle to prevent the skin from sagging.

What is the difference between liposuction and a thigh lift for thigh contouring?

Many people get liposuction and a high lift mixed up. While they’re both cosmetic procedures that improve the thighs’ appearance, they actually target different issues and achieve different results. Liposuction focuses on localized fat deposits on the thighs for people with good skin elasticity. Liposuction is typically performed using a thin tube called a cannula, which is inserted through small incisions in the skin, then the cannula gets used to suction out the fat cells. On the other hand, a thigh lift can be performed on the whole thigh, and is a good option for people with saggy skin.

When will I see the final results of the surgery?

The final results take several months to fully develop. However, you’ll be able to see immediate appearance improvement in your thighs. It’s also important to note that each body is unique, and you need to follow your doctor’s instructions carefully to see your desired results.

Are there any risks or potential complications associated with gastric balloons?

Gastric balloons are generally considered a safe option as it’s less invasive and non-surgical. However, just like any other procedure, there are some potential risks and complications. There are immediate risks and long-term risks.

Immediate Risks:

Nausea and vomiting

Abdominal discomfort



Long-term Risks:

Perforation: a rare but serious complication can occur if the balloon punctures the stomach wall. Symptoms include severe abdominal pain, fever, and nausea.

Obstruction: In rare cases, the balloon can become lodged in the small intestine, causing an obstruction. Symptoms include constipation, abdominal pain, and vomiting.

Ulceration: The pressure of the balloon against the stomach lining can sometimes cause ulcers to develop. Symptoms include abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting.

Balloon deflation: In rare cases, the balloon can deflate prematurely. This is often due to a defect in the balloon material or a leak in the valve. Deflated balloons typically pass through the digestive system without causing any problems.

How does the mechanism of a gastric balloon promote a feeling of fullness?

As we discussed before, gastric balloons promote a feeling of fullness through two primary mechanisms: restricted food intake and delayed gastric emptying. The combination of these two mechanisms mimics the natural sensations of fullness, which leads to a decrease in overall calorie consumption and weight loss.

How is a gastric balloon inserted and removed? Is it a surgical procedure?

Gastric balloon insertion and removal is a non-surgical procedure used for weight loss. The gastric balloon is inserted into the stomach through an endoscopic tube which is guided by a small camera, via the mouth. Once in place, it will remain there for up to six to twelve months, and it causes the patient to feel full more quickly after eating smaller meals. For removal of the prosthesis, another endoscopic procedure that takes less than 10 minutes and requires little sedation or anesthesia may be done to remove it from your stomach.

What are the expected benefits of using a gastric balloon for weight loss?

Gastric balloons offer various benefits related but not limited to weight loss. In addition to being non-surgical and temporary. They also improve blood sugar control for people with diabetes, help reduce blood pressure, and can improve sleep quality.
