Arm and Thigh Lifts

Massive weight loss leads to skin and soft tissue sagging in many areas around the body.

The abdomen, breasts, arms and thighs are generally the first areas to be deformed.

Even though some patients with mildly sagging arms or thighs may benefit from simple methods like laser lipolysis or liposuction, most of the patients need open surgical correction and re-tailoring of the sagging tissues. This kind of surgical corrections end up with satisfactory results, but of course leave some linear scars in the armpits or medial thighs. These scars become less visible within time, but do never disappear completely. Here, the patient needs to make a decision between the deformity and some fine scars. Most of the time, patients with significant deformities prefer the scars, and think it’s cost-effective.

Healing period of the arm or thigh lift operations depends on the patient’s profile. Severe deformities and overweight patients tend to have longer healing periods, which are less than two weeks for the worst case.

“I have always had insecurities regarding my body as I had a very boyish body. I was very straight with no curves. My friend got her body done by Dr Mertin in Istanbul and when I saw her body I knew it was time to do something about my own. I contacted dr Mertin and him and his team were very helpful and consulted me regarding the procedure I want which was a Bbl. Dr Mertin was very professional and he explained everything in details before the surgery. He understood exactly what I wanted my body to look like. I suffer from sickle cell so he made sure he explained to me what he can and cannot do due to my sickness which was very professional as it was not about the money but he cared about my well being. The aftercare was fantastic he made sure he checked up on me everyday I was in the hospital and after I left the hospital. All the staff was supper friendly. Even when I got back to London they still checked up on me to see how I was doing. I am very happy with my result and I will highly recommend him.

My experience at the clinic was very pleasant. All the staff was super friendly and they really cared for me and made me feel at home. My room was really nice and it didn’t have that horrible hospital stay which was really good.”
