Nowadays, many women and men pay attention to thinness, thickness or curves of their legs. Women desire for their legs to be long, symmetric and impressive. At the same time men want to have muscular legs.
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.
Calf prosthesis surgery is conducted under general anesthesia. 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.
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 sports activities are allowed as from the third month after operation.
