Right: Obese Patient slimming 20kg. and presents important sagging in the inner part of the thighs. We performed a facelift or tummy tuck scar which is hidden under the pubic hair and the crease of the buttocks. He was also subjected to uplift and enlargement of breasts ( mastopexy with prosthesis ).


The stretching the thighs includes both the lifting of his inner and outer or trochanteric region.

Stretching the inner thighs is to remove excess skin and fat from the inner thighs. Is often associated with liposuction of that region and may, depending on its magnitude, performed under local anesthesia or epidural. Need 24 hours admitted to clinic and use a soft but elastic compression garment for 15 days. Also benefits from massage and acupressure.

Trochanteric tummy tuck is to reduce excess skin and fat in large thighs and buttocks deformities or stretch in your outer thighs and inner side. Currently, after liposuction has decreased its indication, however, enables excellent results in very specific cases. It is major surgery that requires an entry in clinic for 3 or 4 days and is performed under epidural or general anesthesia. The patient should wear an elastic postoperative garment made to measure and avoid sitting for 8-10 days. Also benefits from acupressure, massage, etc.
