Leg Aesthetics

Leg Aesthetics

Leg aesthetics is the general name of a surgical group that aims to remove all deformities of the calf, hip, knee circumference, and thigh regions starting from the ankle. Thanks to these surgeries, deformities in the legs can be eliminated. 

The fat in the ankles, legs, calves, hips, knees and upper legs can be removed. Excess skin caused by weight loss and aging can be eliminated. Feminine or masculine ideal body lines can be created in accordance with the person’s body structure and expectations.

To whom does it apply?

  • People who have problems with lipodystrophy or lipedema in the ankles, legs, calves, hips, knees, and upper legs
  • Those who complain of lack of volume, thinness, or collapse in one or more areas of the leg and upper leg
  • People with X-leg, O-leg, and bow-leg deformities
  • Patients with agglomeration and excess skin caused by weight loss or aging
  • Those looking for ideal feminine or masculine lines below the waist
  • Lipedema patients

Before surgery

In order to maintain the result for a long time, you should take care to be at the ideal weight. As in all surgeries, it is necessary to avoid exposure and use of all active and passive tobacco products, especially cigarettes, at least two ideal four weeks before leg aesthetic surgeries.

It is very important that you inform the healthcare team, especially your doctor, in terms of regularly used drugs and food supplements, known diseases, previous surgeries, and persistent complaints, as this can prevent many risks related to the operation. In particular, anticoagulants and foods may need to be discontinued or rearranged before surgery.

About surgery

These surgeries are mostly performed under general anesthesia. Fat injections can be made by using fat taken from other parts of the body in cases of thinness, deformity, and bow leg appearance in the calf area. For the same purpose, special silicone prostheses prepared for the leg can also be placed with the help of short incisions made below the knee.

Liposuction can be shaped for irregular and regional lipodystrophy around the thighs and knees. Thigh lift surgery can be performed for skin sagging on the thigh. However, it should be known that in this surgery, there will be permanent scars in the groin area or starting from the groin and extending to the inner leg area. Although these scars usually begin to fade after the third month, they are never completely erased.

After surgery

One night of hospitalization after the operation is sufficient and sometimes patients can be discharged on the same day. If liposuction has been applied, corsets supporting these areas are used. It is recommended to use these corsets for an average of 2-4 weeks. As in all surgeries, bruising, swelling, and edema occur in varying degrees. These bruises and swellings start to disappear after a week.
