- How to do the arm lifting operation, thighs
The lifting operation of the arms is usually carried out either in the outpatient, either in a surgery center or in a hospital, using a general anesthesia, so that you are completely comfortable. Through this procedure the plastic surgeon makes incisions on the underside of the arms. These incisions, in most cases, start near the armpit to the area around the elbow. The surgeon will then remove some of the excessive skin tissue and will reposition the skin on the underside of the arm, tightening and eliminating the flattened and left-hand appearance of the skin. The incisions will be closed with seams and the arms will be bandaged.
The lift of the thigh is usually performed under general anesthesia. The procedure involves small incisions in the area of the thigh and inguinal area. Your plastic surgeon will carefully determine where he will make these incisions to minimize the visibility of the scars in order to wear a wide variety of clothing according to personal options.
In some cases, the lifting of the thigh also involves the area around the outer thigh and buttocks. In these cases, the incisions are somewhat longer and can extend from the buttocks to the abdomen and to the level of the inguinal area. During the pre-surgical consultation, your plastic surgeon will determine what type of thigh lifting procedure will be the best for you and the exact place where the incisions will be made.
In the case of the internal thigh lift, as well as those extending to the outer thighs and buttocks, excess skin will be removed, and the remaining skin will be stretched and repositioned to create a smoother and firmer contour.
