Do any scars remain after the surgery?
The patients undergoing leg lift also known as leg tightening will have a scar which is hidden on their groin. The patients undergoing implantation have a 3-4 cm scar behind their knees. The overall results of the surgery are long-lasting.
What should the patients who are applied calf protesis pay attention to after the surgery? How is the surgery process?
Calf prosthesis surgery is conducted under general anaesthesia. The surgery lasts about 1 hour, and does not require the patient to stay in hospital. Patients who undergo calf prosthesis surgery should avoid intense exercise and should wear their special corsets for 1 month post-operation.
Candidates Suitable For Leg Lift
We first go through a detailed examination of our patients who complain of their legs and decide whether an operation may be performed. Aesthetic problems that occur in legs could be various, such as: thick leg, thin leg , asymmetric leg or other deformations. Leg fat in the hips, thighs and knees occur the most. This kind of fat shows a low hip and a short leg, resulting in a non-aesthetic appearance.
At Cygnus Clinic, leg lift may be done in various ways depending on the patient’s need and doctor’s approval:
You may return home on the same day after laser-liposuction or liposuction. During the first week, It is not recommended for you to stand for a long time and to lift your legs up. To support tissues and speed up the recovery, a special clothing is put on. We recommend for this clothing to be used for about 3 weeks post-operation. Usually, the patient can go back to work within 5-7 days.
After fat transfer; you may return home on the same day. You should wear a special corset for the first two weeks. 1 month later, you can start with active exercises except running. All the sports activities are allowed as from the 3rd month.
If silicone prosthesis are applied in the leg; the period of stay in hospital is one day, the patient is not allowed to walk for about 12 hours and varsity socks are put on for 3 weeks. During the first week, movement should be limited. After 3 months, any sports activities are allowed. About 3 weeks are needed to see the final appearance of the legs.
