What Causes Leg Sagging?

The leg area that descends from the hip to the knee is called the thigh. In short, the upper leg area is also called the thigh. The skin in the thigh area is slightly thinner than other areas. For this reason, problems such as sagging or cracking in the upper leg area can be seen more easily. Sagging in the thigh area; that is, inner leg sagging begins to be seen more often with advancing age. Intra-leg sagging is inevitable after excessive weight gain and loss. Especially after bariatric surgery, people experience leg sagging as the fat tissue in the thigh region decreases after weight loss. Pregnancy is also a condition that can cause sagging in the legs.

For all these reasons, especially the upper leg skin loses its taut appearance over time and the subcutaneous fat tissue becomes thinner. These effects lead to sagging of the leg skin in the inner part of the upper leg area called the thigh. While sagging in the legs is in the middle of the thigh area at first, it turns into a pile up towards the knee over time. With the increase in the problem of inner leg sagging, the person needs leg stretching aesthetics.

What is Leg Lift Surgery?

Leg stretching, also known as thigh lift surgery, is an aesthetic surgery that eliminates the problem of leg sagging. With the thigh stretching operation, the excess skin resulting from the fat in the leg and inner leg sagging is removed.
