Everything you need to know about thigh lifts in Turkey

A thigh lift in Turkey is cosmetic surgery that can also be referred to as “cruroplasty”. This operation consists of slimming and toning the appearance of the legs. The procedure is suitable for both men and women.

The plastic surgeon removes excess skin from the inner thighs. Depending on the case, this operation may be performed in conjunction with liposuction.

Thigh lift surgery in Turkey produces satisfactory results. However, patients should be aware that cruroplasty leaves a long scar on the inner thigh, and in some cases on the inguinal fold.

Who are the best candidates?

A thigh lift in Turkey is cosmetic surgery that generally targets 4 categories of people:

  • Patients who have undergone bariatric surgery;
  • Patients who have lost weight;
  • Elderly patients;
  • Followers of the slimming diktat.

The first and second categories are left with flabby, abundant skin around the thighs; this operation is a necessity. For the other categories, the aim is to have more aesthetically pleasing legs.

Before the operation

For your information, you will need to take 2 to 4 weeks off work. You will also have to stop taking any medication that could trigger bleeding during the thigh lift in Turkey, i.e. anticoagulants, anti-inflammatories and the pill. This must be done 10 days in advance.

In addition, when you come to the clinic, don ‘t forget to bring the compression girdle and the pre-operative check-up prescribed by your doctor:

  • Blood tests,
  • And the electrocardiogram.

Note that people with HIV are eligible for this surgery.

Before the operation, you will have a consultation with an anaesthetist. The anaesthetist will explain

  • The procedure and its duration,
  • Any risks and complications arising from cruroplasty,
  • Precautions to take after the facelift, among other things.

The day of the operation

A thigh lift in Turkey lasts 2 to 3 hours in the operating theatre, and is performed under general anaesthetic. First, the surgeon draws lines on your thighs to indicate the areas to be treated. These serve as markers for the incisions he will make once the sedation has taken effect.

The plastic surgeon then removes the amount of skin and fat in the thighs, one after the other. If you have a lot of fat cells, your doctor will take the opportunity to suction out the excess fat. Provided that liposuction has been planned and discussed with you beforehand, of course.

Once the cruroplasty has been completed and the thighs sewn together, the surgeon will place you in a support garment, which you will have to keep on for a month, 24 hours a day. Note that the sutures are absorbable. If they are not, they will be removed from the operated thighs 15 days later.

After the operation

The medical staff will remove you from the operating theatre and take you to your room for 24 hours’ hospitalisation. The day after the operation, the surgeon will apply a dressing, which will be changed during the following week.

We will then provide you with a nurse. Their job will be to change your dressing every 2 days for 2 weeks. You should also be aware that during the first few days, you will notice marks on the areas of your thighs.

Such as oedema and/or bruising. However, these will disappear completely after 6 months.

Unlike scars, which fade slightly but do not disappear. They can, however, be eliminated by other cosmetic surgery.

Risks, complications and side effects

There may be some rare risks during a thigh lift:

  • Swelling of the skin ;
  • Deep vein thrombosis;
  • Damage to fatty tissue;
  • Fluid accumulation (seroma);
  • Poor wound healing;
  • Skin numbness.

That’s why you should trust us to help you choose your surgeon in Istanbul, and opt for a reputable and experienced practitioner.

It should be noted that, in Islam, a thigh lift is not considered haram. It is halal and acceptable if used to remove a blemish.

We are committed to providing tailored assistance to people with reduced mobility. Our clinic is wheelchair accessible.

Precautions to be taken

The operation does not cause much pain, but some irritation may occur during the healing process. Your doctor will prescribe painkillers for this. As well as anticoagulant treatment (Lovenox, or other), to be taken for 10 days. To avoid phlebitis or thromboembolism.

FAQ – Frequently asked questions

Whether for restorative or aesthetic purposes, the results obtained after a cruroplasty are permanent. But you do need to adopt a healthy lifestyle. That means eating a balanced diet, giving up smoking and exercising regularly.

No, cruroplasty is not painful. You may feel some irritation after the operation. But this is completely normal; it means that your skin is healing. You will be prescribed painkillers to ease this discomfort.

Turkey is one of the most popular destinations for patients. For the affordability, the quality of the care provided and, above all, for the high success rate. In fact, Turkey has up to 90% of successful femoroplasty operations.

Walking is recommended from the first week after the operation. However, it is not advisable to engage in any intense activity for at least a month. So no sport for at least the first month after a femoral plasty.

The effect of a thigh lift is instantaneous. But it is true that to appreciate the final result, you need to wait between 3 months and 1 year. This is the time needed for the oedema caused by the operation to disappear. And for the morphology of the thighs to become more harmonious.

The total medical stay in Turkey is 7 days. This takes into account the hospitalisation period and the pre- and post-operative consultations. It should be noted that cruroplasty is performed under general anaesthetic and requires an overnight stay in hospital.

Non-surgical options for lifting the thighs include targeted exercise such as squats, weight loss, body contouring treatments such as radiofrequency or cryolipolysis, and wearing compression garments. Consult a healthcare professional for personalised advice.
