I couldn't have chosen a better clinic. The fact it was 65% cheaper than the prices I'd been quoted the in UK and the extra help they provide is just incredible. My surgery went perfectly and they removed 10lbs of skin from my stomach and waist. I had everything I needed in my hospital room and the nurses are so attentive, kind and available 24 hours a day.

Before and after surgery I felt like I was very well taken care of! The nurses were very compassionate, and made sure I had what I needed - and that it went well! I don't think I've experienced that it's so good in Norwegian hospitals even..I will definitely recommend the clinic further, if anyone is considering it, but is insecure.

These people went above and beyond, soooo much more polite than UK surgeons, these people actually care about how you are, check up on you and answer all the questions you have. After check up a week later, my surgeon carried my luggage to my taxi. Fussy in ways you'll never know and if ever the need for surgery again, I'll go there. Anyone I know, I'll recommend over any others I've heard of.

Surgery went good and I was so happy with my stay at the clinic with extremely helpful and friendly nurses caring for me 24/7. The clinic was so fresh and I was served delicious meals. Another bonus was their transportation team who picked me up/dropped me off at the airport, back and forth from the hotel to the clinic etc. It was great not having to worry about any logistics, since it was all taken care of.

Our clinic works with medical professionals of highest education and experience level and uses the same materials as the clinics in Western Europe.

The price difference is only due to considerably lower average salaries and taxes – which is the main reason for medical travel everywhere around the world.

Thigh lift

What is calf correction?

Calf correction surgery enhances the shape and overall appearance of the lower leg. Surgeons use implants or a fat grafting technique to create visually pleasing calves and proportional legs which have long been known to be one of the crucial elements of an appealing physique. Some patients may opt for calf correction solely for the aesthetical purpose, while others may want to get rid of certain developmental deformities, congenital asymmetries, or deformities caused by a traumatic event.

  • During the surgery, a patient is put under general anaesthesia.
  • The whole procedure takes approximately 2-3 hours to complete.
  • The implant is inserted through a small incision (3-4 cm long) in the back of the calf near the knee pit, so the scar is minimal and not noticeable.
  • If the surgery is performed with a fat grafting technique, the fat will first have to be harvested from a patient, then specifically purified and prepared for the injection. The fat is obtained through liposuction of the abdomen, thighs, arms, or other areas where there is plenty of fat.
  • After the surgery, the incision sites are closed and the legs are placed in a compression garment.

There are two main techniques that are currently used:

  •  The first one works by making an incision in the groin that extends down towards the back of the thigh.
  • The second technique works by making an incision in the inseam, and thus, uplifting the skin from the groin down to the knee.

The results of a thigh lift can be noticed immediately, but the final result will be visible after a few months. After recovery, some visible scars may remain, but the results are long-lasting if stable body weight is maintained.

What is the difference between thigh lift and inner thigh liposuction?

A thigh lift is a more extensive procedure than thigh liposuction. This surgery is performed under general anaesthesia. A surgeon creates an elliptical incision along the groin crease and then remove excess skin and fat. Then follows the tightening of the remaining tissues, which helps to achieve a firmer appearance and feel. Cases that are more extensive may require a second incision that follows down the inner thigh. It will take approximately 2 weeks for initial wound healing and 4 more weeks for a complete recovery. During recovery, the patient is required to wear a compression garment, which promotes healing and speeds up the recovery time. It is crucial to be cautious when moving, especially during the first two weeks. Incisions in the thigh area are subject to tension from sitting down, standing up, walking, and bending. Therefore, it is highly important to restrict activity at least for the first couple of months.

Inner thigh liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure which addresses the fat found in the inner part of the thighs. One or several tiny incisions are placed in the groin area for the insertion of a cannula. A surgeon will then remove fat from the inner thigh area. A patient might experience tenderness and swelling for a few weeks. A compression garment is required for at least 6 weeks, but the patient can be up and moving the same day after inner thigh liposuction.

Who is an eligible candidate for thigh lift surgery?

Each patient case is unique, and therefore, thigh lift may not benefit all patients equally. Who would gain the most advantage from undergoing this body contouring procedure?

  • After losing a considerable amount of weight, thighs can be dramatically altered because of loose skin. Skin sagging may be caused not only by major weight loss but also by the aging process. In both cases, a thigh lift is a great option.
  • Especially for thigh lift procedure patients should not plan to lose any more weight. Their weight should be relatively stable for at least 6 months.
  • Eligible patients can be men and women who are healthy individuals without any medical conditions that would increase the risk of surgery or impair recovery.
  • The best patients are non-smokers, since consuming tobacco restricts blood flow, and thus, prolongs the healing process.
  • Also, it is necessary to have a positive outlook and realistic expectations for what thigh lift surgery can accomplish.
Preparing for thigh lift

 

Using your time wisely before a major surgery is just as important as taking the time to recover. When your appointments and surgery is scheduled, you can begin preparing for your visit to the clinic.

 

Two weeks before the scheduled surgery you should have your medications and dietary supplements reviewed. Bear in mind that aspirin, ibuprofen, CoQ10, glucosamine chondroitin, flaxseed, vitamin E, fish oil, green tea, chia seeds, primrose oil, and garlic can all increase the risk of bleeding.. You should eat a balanced diet and consume enough proteins, vitamins (e.g. vitamins A and C), and minerals (e.g. zinc). Note that vitamin, mineral and protein malnutrition impairs all stages of immune response, wound healing, and tissue production. Stay hydrated and avoid smoking and consuming alcohol one month before and after the surgery.

One week before your surgery you should undergo any necessary medical tests. A surgeon will examine your medical history, skin quality, and other significant factors. During a consultation with the surgeon, you will discuss available strategies and post-operative period. You will have to undergo any necessary lab tests which might include blood work, urine test, ECG (electrocardiogram), X-rays, or others. Before and after photos of the thighs may also be taken.

On the day of surgery, arrive earlier prior to your appointment You should not eat or drink at least 6 hours before the surgery to prevent regurgitation when put under general anaesthesia. Try to get a good night’s sleep and keep calm before surgery. You should not wear any makeup,piercing, wigs or hairpieces. Comfortable and loose clothing is best in this case. 

Recovering after a thigh lift

After thigh lift, incisions will be covered with wound dressings and you may have drain tubes placed in the wounds. The drains keep serous fluids from building up under the skin, and thus, prevent seroma formation. Sutures usually dissolve after approximately a week and do not require to be removed. Also, from now on you will be fitted with a compression garment which keeps the tissues tightly in place and provides support for your body as it heals. You are recommended to wear a compression garment 22-23 hours a day for 6-8 weeks. Your surgeon will provide any necessary information about wound care.

During the first week, it is common to experience swelling, pain, and discomfort. If the pain is unusually sharp and long-lasting, contact the clinic immediately. In order to reduce swelling, stick to low sodium diet and consume plenty of fiber-rich foods.

Swelling and discomfort usually subside in approximately 2 weeks. Patients are recommended to take at least a few weeks off from work to rest and heal properly. Final results can be appreciated after residual swelling is gone, which usually takes about 4-6 months.

Bear in mind that it is best to avoid direct sun exposure as it may lead to skin irritation and possible skin discoloration in the long run.

One of the key parts of recovery is acknowledging the necessity to be very cautious when moving. Since incisions are made in the thigh area, they are subject to straining and pulling when you stand up, walk, sit, or bend. Also, avoid getting up and down the stairs for the first two weeks. High-intensity activities, including exercising, sexual intercourse, swimming, and driving, should be avoided for at least 8 weeks.

Despite the fact that you need to avoid high-impact activities, some movement is still beneficial to reduce clotting risk. You may also wear compression stockings and do calf exercises, such as heel-toe movements. The best way to prevent clot formation is walking.

In rare cases, wound healing may be prolonged due to poor blood flow (a side effect of smoking) or a lot of pulling on the wounds. If the patients fail to follow doctor’s recommendations on wound care, an infection can also prolong wound healing. In rare cases, a scar revision might be necessary at a later stage.
