Thigh Lift

The thigh lift is a surgical procedure aimed at improving the shape and smoothness of the legs for the following reasons:

  • Improve the body contour of a woman who, for personal reasons, thinks that the skin of her thighs is off.
  • Correct a reduction in the volume of the legs and thighs after a significant reduction in weight.
  • Allow the use of certain garments such as swimsuits, in women with thighs in very poor condition.
  • Pulling the skin both in the upper and medial direction we can give more smoothness to the distended skin of the thigh and raise the sagging tissue.

This text will give you a basic knowledge of the procedure, when it can help you, how it is done, and what results you can expect. It cannot answer all your doubts, as many depend on the individual circumstances of each patient. In the initial consultation we will explain all the particularities of your case.

Am I a good candidate for a thigh lift?

The thigh lift can improve your appearance and self-esteem. However, before deciding you should carefully review what your expectations are and discuss them with us.

The thigh lift is usually performed to elevate the sagging tissue of thighs and buttocks, to improve body contouring.

Arm Lift

Brachioplasty or brachial lifting is the surgical technique aimed at improving the appearance of the upper extremities by resection of the excess dermofofof the inner face of both arms. What we intend with this surgery is to get stylized and harmonious arms with the body.

Who is the ideal candidate for this brachioplasty or arm lift?

If you have suffered heavy weight loss as a result of diet or after gastric bypass surgery and your health is good, you should consider it.

The ideal candidate to undergo a “Brachioplasty” is that man or woman with excess skin on the inner side of the arms, preferably healthy and with stable weight.

Trunk or body Lifting

The Trunk Lift treats the thoracic region or upper half of the trunk that is altered with the process of massive weight loss. Excess skin and tissue shedding produces descent of the grooves of the breasts and back and inverted “V” deformities at the anterior and posterior level of the trunk.

In general, patients the first area they decide to treat is the lower half of the body: abdomen, buttocks and thighs, but a posteriori, improving the upper thoracic area makes the overall body contour improve.


Who is the ideal candidate for surgery?

The procedure is indicated in patients who have stabilized their weight for at least 3-6 months and any of the following deformities created by massive weight loss are objective:

  • Anterior and/or posterior “V” deformities.
  • Descended inframammary groove.
  • Breast with axillary prolongation and / or sagging of the lateral back.
  • Breast deformities: Women: ptosis, hypertrophy, atrophy and men, gynecomastia.

Each of these procedures can be performed separately or together according to the patient’s assessment.

Belt Lipectomy

Belt Lipectomy is the procedure performed to remove exaggerated and circumferential excess skin, or skin and body fat, in the abdomen, flanks and lower back that have been caused by significant weight loss, obesity, or multiple pregnancies, a situation that cannot be resolved with liposuction or abdominoplasty alone. In these cases, the belly, hips, lower back, buttocks and thighs are compromised with excess tissue pendulums.

The process is like a facelift, but of the trunk and also receives the names of TORSOPLASTY, CIRCUMFERENTIAL TORSOPLASTY, BODY LIFTING AND CIRCUMFERENTIAL LIPECTOMY.

Am I a good candidate for a body lift?

Significant weight losses can occur due to important changes in lifestyle habits (exercise, diet), or after bariatric surgery with losses of between 30 to 100 Kg., presenting variable degrees of tissue hanging in different parts of the body, which causes a loss of harmony of the body contour.

Dermolipectomy or isolated abdominoplasty in these patients limits the improvement only to the abdomen, with permanence or accentuation of deformities in the back, hips and buttocks. In reality, some patients require, in addition to circumferential lipectomy, surgery on the arms, inside the thighs, breasts and back.
