Thigh Lift in Turkey

Compare 11 clinics

Thigh lift surgery or thighplasty is a type of cosmetic procedure which can effectively tighten the skin around the thighs area, thus reducing any sagging in the inner and outer thighs regions. Thighplasty surgery is usually performed on patients that have lost a considerable amount of weight, but it can also be performed on individuals that simply have excess fat and skin tissue around the thighs.

There are two main types of thigh lift surgery:

● Inner thigh surgery or inner thighplasty
● Outer thigh surgery or outer thighplasty

Patients who have body lift surgery, also have an outer thigh lift procedure performed as part of the body lift procedure. The inner thigh lift is usually performed as a single procedure. Patients often combine outer thigh lift surgery with tummy tuck or abdominoplasty. This is called an extended tummy tuck procedure.

Thigh Lift Candidates

Thigh lift surgery or thighplasty is recommended for patients who have lost a substantial amount of weight either through bariatric surgery or exercise. These patients are usually left with a large amount of saggy tissue around the thighs area. Some patients may have sagging skin around the thighs even without any weight loss, it can simply be due to genetics.

Am I Suitable for Thigh Lift?

Severely obese individuals are not good candidates for thigh lift surgery. Thighplasty patients need to be in a good state of health and a stable weight before going in for surgery. Patients suffering from diabetes, lung disease or heart disease may not be good candidates for thigh lift surgery or thighplasty. Individuals wanting this surgery also need to have a clear understanding of the procedure and what it can achieve.

Preparing for Thigh Lift

Patients must avoid smoking for at least 2 weeks before the thighplasty surgery. Herbal teas, multivitamins and blood thinners such as aspirin also need to be avoided for two weeks before the thighplasty surgery. It’s a good idea for patients to have a physical examination from their GP before travelling abroad for thigh lift surgery.

How is Thigh Lift Performed?

Thigh lift surgery can be performed while the patient is under general anaesthesia or IV anaesthesia. The incision areas are shaved and cleaned with betadine. Once the anaesthesia kicks in, the surgeon can begin making the necessary incisions.

There are two main types of thigh lift surgery:

● Inner thigh lift surgery – the incision is made in the groin crease
● Outer thigh lift surgery – the incision is made horizontally, just under the hip bone

After the proper incisions are created, the surgeon will proceed to eliminate any excess skin and fat tissue from the thighs area. Once the desired result is achieved, the incisions are closed up with dissolving stitches and the area is wrapped in bandages in order to avoid any potential infection in the thigh area. The thigh lift recovery period can begin.

Thigh Lift Recovery

The average thigh lift recovery period lasts around 5 weeks. Patients need to avoid any type of movement during the first week of the thigh lift recovery period.

Patients also need to avoid sitting for the first 2 weeks after the procedure and driving for at least 3 weeks. Patients can usually return to work in around 3-4 weeks, but physical activity and sitting needs to be kept at a minimum, as it can lead to complications.

Before and After Thigh Lift

The swelling will greatly reduce during the first 2 weeks after surgery. Results will slowly start to become visible from the second week onward but it’s important that patients maintain their weight after the procedure. Just because the fatty tissue has been removed, it doesn’t mean that it can’t grow back. A healthy diet and exercise can help patients maintain their newfound look.

Turkey

Turkey is a treasure trove of traditions, spices, street food delights and destinations for any intrepid tourist. It’s a mix between the familiar and the exotic, ranging from the bustling streets of Istanbul to the serene and relaxed Roman ruins spread around Turkey’s Western and Southern coast. Turkey is a fairly large country with 75 million inhabitants. The country spreads between Europe and Asia, with 97% of the country on the Asian side – Asian Turkey. Turkey is encircled and enjoys access to three different seas: The Black Sea, The Aegean Sea and the Mediterranean. Istanbul is the largest city in Turkey and the largest city in Europe, regarding population – It has over 14 million people.

Healthcare

Turkey’s medical infrastructure has improved greatly beginning with the early 2000s and now is one of the biggest medical tourism hubs in Europe and Asia. Turkey has the largest number of JCI-accredited hospitals, second only to the USA and hospitals are more often than not part of international healthcare groups, following strict European protocols and regulations. Turkey has 28.000 medical institutions spread across the European and Asian side but some of the biggest private hospitals and medical centres are in Istanbul, Ankara, Antalya and Bodrum – these also happen to be some of the best tourist destinations in Turkey.

Sights to See

Bodrum is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Turkey, with its sandy beaches and small streets littered with traditional shops and elegant restaurants. The town used to be called Halicarnassus, and the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus is one of the World’s Seven Ancient Wonders. Bodrum also features a castle built by the crusaders in the 15th century.

Istanbul is the home of several architectural treasures, including the Blue Mosque. The Blue Mosque was built on the orders of Sultan Ahmed between 1609 and 1616 and the Sultan’s body still resides within the mosque. The high ceiling is lined with more than 20000 handmade ceramic tiles, hence the name – The Blue Mosque.

Pamukkale, meaning “The Cotton Castle” in Turkish is a surreal destination in the country’s western region of Denizli, world renowned for its white terraces with warm spring water. The ancient Greek city of Hierapolis was built over the springs and Pamukkale was a renowned destination in antiquity as well. Tourists can visit the ancient Roman and Greek ruins of the baths, temples and theatres dating to the second century BC.

Things to Know

● If you don’t feel like waiting in a queue, you can get a VISA for Turkey online. The VISA usually costs around $20 for US travellers.

● Turkey’s population is predominantly Islamic so it’s a good idea to wear a headscarf while visiting mosques. Shorts or any other garments that fit under the knee are not prohibited by law but it’s considered good etiquette not to wear shorts for men or short skirts for women.

● You can change any sort of currency into the Turkish Lira – the Turkish currency just about everywhere. Most supermarkets and shops also accept credit cards.

● Roaming fees in Turkey can be somewhat expensive, so it’s a good idea to simply buy a new Turkish SIM card and use it while staying in Turkey.

● Turkey’s international calling code is +90.

● Electrical installations usually operate on 220 volts, 50 Hz and use European style plugs and European style sockets. Four and Five star hotels usually provide North American - 120 volts, 60 Hz sockets as well.

● Driving in Turkey can be a hassle sometimes, but very pleasurable at other times. Roads are usually in good shape and some roads actually lack traffic, so it can be a relaxing experience. In Turkey, people drive on the right, so that’s a detail you will need to keep in mind. In some areas, villagers made cardboard and marker pen signs in order to help lost tourist on their way.

● Renting a car in Turkey is quite simple and cheap. If you have the budget for a full insurance, you should definitely take it – if anything happens, at least you won’t have to worry about money.

● The Turkish Airlines Company, THY offers destinations to just about anywhere in the world with a total of 261 destinations. The company was founded in 1933 and features 285 passenger and cargo planes.

● Turkey uses the metric system which is easy enough to understand – 1 Km = 1000 meters, 1 Kg = 1000 grams, and so on. One mile equals 1.60 Km.

● Turkish people are warm and very hospitable - It is customary for people to hug and kiss both cheeks regardless of their gender.

● Turkish street food is very diverse, from the simple bagel-type snack Simit to the familiar pizza-type Lahmacun, there are tons of variants to just about anything. 



● Turkish coffee is world renowned, but it’s also a bit different than say, its American counterpart -  It is usually a strong coffee with a rich aroma, served very hot from a small traditional cup. Be careful not to drink any of the coffee grounds still in the cup.

● Turkish delight, as the name suggests, can be a really sweet delight for tourists. It is made from sugar, starch and just about any fruit or aroma imaginable, including walnuts, hazelnuts, pistachios, dates, lemon, orange, rosewater and many others. Turkish delight is usually served with coffee and it became popular all around the world, including in the Balkans region and as far as Brazil and North America.
