Leg treatments

When the loss of muscle tone, skin sagging and an excess of subcutaneous tissue inside the thighs cannot be resolved with sports activities or exercise, it is possible to intervene with a thigh lift.

Adipose fat for diets and aging

Tissue laxity is an effect of ageing and a lack of physical activity does not help. The most performed operation is the lifting of the inner thigh. It is there that accumulations of adipose tissue occur most, for example, when drastic diets result in considerable weight loss. The surgeon intervenes to detach the adipose skin tissue and remove excess skin.

How is the operation performed?

The operation is performed with spinal anaesthesia or under general anaesthesia. The scar is not very visible, as the incision is made in the groin groove and in the gluteal sulcus. Sometimes, cases may occur where the incision descends along the medial side of the thighs and is wider, at the end of the operation aspirin drains are applied for a maximum of 48 hours. For the period of time suggested by the surgeon you will need to wear a containment sheath and scrupulously follow certain medical indications, such as refraining from physical activities like sports and driving. The interventions to treat the imperfections of the thighs made at the Basoccu Medical Practice in Rome are liposuction, mesotherapy, radiofrequency, carboxytherapy, laser lipolysis.
