Severe weight loss and even the natural aging process may cause the skin of the upper thighs to sag. The skin will develop wrinkles and folds and the whole silhouette will, therefore, change. An upper thigh lift guarantees tight, beautiful legs.

A diet, a gastric band, or a gastric bypass surgery may all achieve a quick weight reduction. This often has consequences on the condition and look of the skin of the legs, it starts to sag. And aging demands its tribute, too.
Depending on the condition of the patient, the skin and fat deposits may be removed with an incision on the groins or with an incision on the internal side of the upper thighs.
Sometimes the combination of an incision with a liposuction may be advisable. Should this be the case, Dr. Colette Carmen Camenisch injects, at the beginning of the surgery, a special liposuction solution (tumescent technique) in the aesthetically unpleasant fat deposits. For example, on the knees and on the outer side of the upper thighs (commonly referred to as "saddle bags").
Then, the adipose cells are released from the cellular bond with a very careful technique (body jet/water jet assisted liposuction) and professionally aspirated in a high-tech procedure, without any damage to vessels or nerves.
Subsequently, the skin in excess in the area that must be tightened is surgically removed. You can find out if a combined surgery is advisable for your case during your personal consultation appointment.
